I use WOUNDWANGS!

A really simple notched arrow marker with a ring that moves up and down. It’s impossible to accidentally knock over and lose score.



A friend invented them for a Kickstarter earlier this year and now all is fulfilled he’s started selling them online - https://www.woundwang.com

I can appreciate the idea, but when I've seen them used the table's aesthetic is ruined completely - they're far too big and obvious (and I don't even love having dice on the board). Far too visible. But, to each their own.

I use wound markers counting how many they have taken. These are the ones I have

Anything but pen and paper is heresy in my eyes. Too much of a chance for a dice to "slip" and add a wound back now and then.

Yeah, I can see that.

Personally, I'm someone who wants a clear table except for models and scenery - no books, paper, cards, drinks, etc. And I always clear my dice back to the sides after rolling. Anything else is really distracting to me. When I DO have markers, I want them all to look uniform, which is kinda why I use the wangs. All my wound markers are exactly the same colour, etc. If you're gonna have markers, have uniform 'clean' ones!

Spare dice littering the table and psychic cards sitting under/next to units are my big OCD bugbears...!

I count up from zero wounds taken, because in KoW, units waver or break on a roll of 2D6 + wounds taken. Counting down would be needlessly complicated.

In 8th edition, it is normally more useful to count down, with the way monsters and vehicles degrade. My collection of dice comes from all manner of sources. I'm a die scrounger. I pick up some dice here and there and everywhere.


You know, that makes more sense to do it that way. I hadn't thought of how much easier it makes wound-degrading easier to keep up with.

I have these awesome metal skulls from Macrocosm miniatures, from an old kickstarter of theirs. They have nice heft, and are great tokens!

But I don't see them available any more...


I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...
