Chain of Command - Mine Counters

A quick post to show you some counters I made today to represent minefields in CoC. Here are the Allied counters.

German counters.

They're simply 50x50mm GW bases covered in sand and flocked etc to match my other terrain items. The posts are just chunky matchsticks and the signs were created in Microsoft Word and printed on a decent quality laser, then backed with thin card. I chose 50x50mm bases as, being effectively 2 inches by 2 inches, it should be straightforward to imagine a further 2 inch 'zone' extending around them. I had initially planned to make some 6 inch by 6 inch bases in MDF but realised that, given the often very scenic nature of CoC tables, they might be quite tricky to place amongst hedgerows, etc.

As you can probably tell we're getting quite 'into' CoC here at the "table". Plenty more figures and scenery to follow. :o)

Great idea and nicely executed. They'll make a good addition to your table.

Simple but effective. Well done.

In fact I'm going to copy this for some western desert minefields- thanks!
