Very quick update tonight.
For many years I have kept track of wounds (and now hull points) by using dice. However this tends to prove problematic at the best of times.
So I was looking to do some counters instead.
I picked up some skulls from Blood and Skull Industries. The plan was to use these as the markers with something on them to mark how many wounds or hull points were left.
This is idea 1 - inspired by old drawings showing Marines with studs to mark their long service:
So the studs mark the numbers of wounds/hull points left. I'm not sure though how well these stand out so I did a very quick paint job on one to see how well the studs show up...
So I am going to do a second version with a roman numeral carved into the skull. I'll get that painted as well so I can compare the two ideas.
