So in wandering around the Internet Wastes the other day, I came across a great idea at AdvancedTauTactica.com. The clever gits had made custom markers for their army that were fish'ead themed. Yes, a great idea... So naturally, I Looted it! Here it is, kustumized and improved, as only we orks can do! Orky Gameplay Markers! This art was made to go on the larger square fantasy bases (the orc sized ones, not the gobbo sized ones), as square is more proppa for orks, and round just isn't! I know this may be a problem for you ladz that don't have the bases around, so you'll either have to buy some (which I think your local store should have for pretty cheap) or loot them from a friend. Alternatively, you can mount these to thick black card or foamboard and they will work just as well. If you do have the smaller square fantasy bases, you'll just have to shrink the art down before you print it - though I am not sure what size would be the exact right size for that. The markerz are organized loosely by color. The black markerz are for your vehicles when they get damaged (there are even different ones for damaged klaws for your kanz so you can keep track easier); the red markers are Wound markers for your Nobz, Warbosses, Big Meks, Painbosses, and Weirdboyz; and the green markers are for morale effects and Hidden Set Up. I want to also take a moment to thank Gaf Naz for his work in redrawing and compiling all the ork glyphs into his glyph thread - that made it a lot easier to decide on what glyphs to use and I didn't have to hunt around on the net looking for them. Thanks a lot, bud! I also want to thank the HQ for helping me decide on what glyphs to use and others to throw in for a better gameplay experience. Special thanks to Hakbash for getting his markers made so fast and letting me use his pics for this thread! Any questions or comments? Let me know and I'll do my best to address them. Nov. 4, 2007 - moved this topic to the Goff Fortress, as they are more suited to gameplay than actual modelling.

Those are awesome! Until now I've been using my needlessly-complicated system of colored tokens and coins.... "okay, so 2 cents plus 1 red token equals shaken.....if it's a green token, it's stunned....." Looted!

Grimteef made us some proppa markers, so being a proppa Goff I figured I'd have to be the first to loot, er I mean make a few. :blush The markers are simple to make all you need is some white PVA glue, standard size fantasy square bases, and a color printer. You can play around with printing sizes to come up with different sized markers. I did a few large 40mm vehicle markers to be used for my gargant. I'm sure you could do smaller ones as well if you like. Maybe small weedy ones for your grots. Da operation is simple; After you print out your markers. Cut out da markers with a pair of sissors. Spread a little glue on your plastic base trying to get an even coat and cover da whole top of the base. Put on one of your markers and press it flat, wipe off the excess glue that spurts out da side with a finger or towel. Set it out for a while to dry and make some more. You could clear coat the markers when they are dry but that really isn't needed. You don't even need to paint the base edge....simply leave it black. Proppa. Da operation is so simple even a Goff can do it. ;) WAAAGH! da proppa Orky markers

I've been using the vehicle damage dice as markers, but these are way better. Thanks for the idea.

great idea, i thought about doing it myself just haven't had the time as of late. I was either going to put bits of models or GS a rough design for general purpose.

That's so looted! I'll have to change some of the lettering, as Spanish gits don't get a word of English, so imagine if it's in orky! I'll have to translate it to "orky" spanish, but I will use them for sure!

I know there are not so much Spanish people here at the-waaagh, but for those I've made this little modification to the original, credits to the bosses though. For the other gitz, you can have a laugh about how Orks speak Spanish! ;) counterz_espanyol.jpg
