So, this post is meant to be a follow-up to the Outstanding Status Effect Marker post I did earlier this year. In that post, I talked about the buttons that I’d forgotten to make when I had the original batch done. To recap, in my brainstorming, the ones that I had left to make were:
- Vehicle Damage Markers
- Soul Blaze
And that pretty much summed up the ones that I wound up printing when I got around to it. I didn’t wind up making a concussed token (figuring that it doesn’t happen much and it generally goes away immediately, so what’s the use of having a status marker), but I did come up with a couple more tokens to use:
- Tervigon “Spawned Out” marker (a brilliant suggestion from Dwez over at 40k Addict)
- Ultramarine Chapter Tactics markers (three tokens that I can keep on my side of the board to remind me to actually use these abilities)
- Objectives for our Apocalypse game: The Fall of Morrsleb
I had originally planned on using green glass beads for the objective markers, but then thought that if I was doing an order already, it would be nice to make sets of objective markers for the participants. So, using my template from the previous objective markers, I did up a set of green-tinted objectives with a picture of cultists surrounding a large block of warpstone (as that was sort of the theme of the battle. Hint: the moon in the WHFB universe is called “Morrsleb.”) So, yeah, I printed up sets of objectives for all of the participants and I also gave a set of objectives to Brandon for all of the help he put in to get the terrain ready for the battle.
Of the other buttons, I’m particularly happy with the vehicle damage markers, and the soul blaze icon is a pretty unique take on the buttons as well (As most of them I’ve created to date have some sort of border around it). I figured this would need some sort of flame in the picture and, since it was supposed to be magical flame, why not make them pink. A quick Google search lead me to that photo, and voila!
Blind is a little hard to read and I’m not thrilled with the spawned out icon, but hopefully I don’t have to use either of them too much. 😉
With that said, I think this will probably conclude my posts on buttons for a while (at least until the next bug book is released). Like I said earlier, I do have the templates and the contact information for the gal that presses these for me, and they only cost about a quarter each, so if anyone wants either, please let me know.
