Miniatures for the Grand Melee

In order to have 60 fighters on the field at the same time, and to keep track of their stats and injuries, seemed a daunting task, so I created some new miniatures that are more like war game tokens. each token is .9 inches by .9 inches, so they fit in the 1″ hexes. Each has a small place for the name of the character. They also have the hit locations so that we could check off when the person was hit (one tick for each minor wound; major wounds put them hors de combat). On the back, we wrote the person’s MASS (which determined how much damage they could take, and their damage bonus) and their Weapons skill. The system worked really well, and I laminated a few for the party so we can use them all the time and wipe off the wet erase markers we use to mark injuries.
