Some might think they're a bit overtly obvious but I like them as you can see what they are and where they are.

Take a small stone. Spray black. Paint the edges with a screaming green colour.

Anything goes mate

Definitely some cool markers I just wish I could find glass broken into such nice shapes.

@hero:
If you can check the shoreline of the nearest beach.
Some really old pieces might be a bit soft around the edges,
the pseudo old ones would be just right and you wouldn't lose an arm moving them about on the board either.
Pet stores specialized in aquariums tend to have a variety if that giant crystal look.
give it a thick clearcoat (and a wash if they're clear) and that matte finish will disappear.

We made ours out of pieces of green mosaic glass bought at the local craft store. We painted up a few flocked 40k 25mm round bases, and then just used PVA to glue some suitable pieces of green glass to them. We didn't paint the glass at all. They look great.

To make them step out on the field, we painted the rims of the bases with Scorpion Green, so they almost GLOW green.

The easy way: Use the cardboard markers from the rulebook.
Almost as easy but more good looking way: Cut pieces of plastic frames from your miniature frames. Use a standard hobby knofe to cut some edges, and glue a pair of them onto a base and paint them. Really easy, and we all got miniature frames lying about, I am sure.

The sprue thing is good but it sort of takes away from the effect of flailing about on the subway and calling down death and destruction of your enemies while you flash the shards infront of the commoners.

Hi.I made my WS markers with a very easy method.I made a big ball of green stuff, left that dry for a couple of hours, and then i cut some small pieces and give them stone appereance.Then i glued them on a base and added some things from my bits bag.Its a very funny way to do it and the result is nice.


Here are some pics:

You could also check at your local fish store there is a large variedy of stuff they put on the bottom of the fish tanks that would make fast and easy counters.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Just ask your wife or mom to save the next glass thing they're going to throw out. My wife broke a crystal goblet which is probably too thin (and dangerous) for Wyrdstone, but I'll give it a try one of these days.

Just be extremely careful how you break any glass... and don't go breaking car windows Wink

Mine are 20mm bases with bits of broken weapons and equipment (plus a few weirder things) textured with sand plus a few bits of fine gravel. I painted the gravel bright green as the wyrdstone:

Here is the wyrdstone counters we use in our group. This particular one isnt made by me, but they all look the same. It is plastic framing cut into sharp stones, embedded in the earth. They are glued to a 50 Íring (A swedish penny, sort of) with added basing. Then it was spraypainted black, then painted and highlighted as normal.

Now, one might think "hat a waste of money!" (well, not really as the 50 Íring is the smallest value in swedish currency), but, the 50 Íring is going out of "print" and will not be worth anything soon, so we collect all the ones we have and make new wyrdstone counters from Smile

Anyway, heres a pic:



The size is almost exactly like a miniature base.
