Often in WWII games you want some number of folks to have panzerfausts. It is convenient to use small markers to denote which figures are carrying them so that when they are fired you can remove them from the game. Also, it is helpful to have markers to show that machine-guns are set up and ready to use, because I don’t always have all the machine-gun teams in both moving and stationary poses. I got the panzerfausts and US .30-cal machine-guns from The Assault Group and made the markers pictured above. I left the bases with the khaki boarder to make them easily distinguished from figures in a game. I may decide they are too visible and flock the edges later.
In previous posts I reported on my progress painting up the Crooked Dice figures from a large order that Greg and I submitted some months back. Despite an eye exam yesterday that left me dilated and blurry, I managed to knock out the last of the Crooked Dice figures I had on hand.
Now Greg and I have to figure out when we are going to run a big Dr. Who inspired game!
