We put up 4 basic token sets on our site for the Bolt Action game. We have provided 20 Pin Markers on the page as well as 15 Wound Markers. Sometimes you want to base the models of a Gun Team on a single base because it looks better having the loader right next to the weapon. Since you can't remove the entire base, just place a wound marker on it. In addition there are 10 each of the FIRE, ADVANCE, AMBUSH, and DOWN Tokens plus 14 RUN and 8 RALLY.

Just go to our site, download the PDF files you want, print them out, stick them on self-adhesive felt or rubber, cut them out, and off you go!

If anyone would like to request a specific Division feel free to let me know and I'll see about getting it done and getting it up.

A great idea. Not everyone is a fan of the Warlord dice.

I'm hoping to get some custom tokens I have had made today!

They are excellent , many thanks !

If you go two sided, Blank/Down and a separate Ambush marker is all you need to replace the dice.

comradetexas Supporting Member of TMP19 Oct 2012 6:57 a.m. PST

Why would you need a blank/Down? Also what do you mean by separate Ambush?

Glad you guys can use them. Again, if anyone has a specific Division request let me know.

Thanks very much. Those will be very useful indeed.

Mr Elmo19 Oct 2012 11:23 a.m. PST

Why would you need a blank/Down?

Mostly for convenience. In Bolt Action, you need to keep track of the following:
1) The unit has activated this turn.
2) That the unit has been ordered DOWN
3) That the unit is on AMBUSH.

So, your Blank/Down counters become the chits you draw for activation. If the player orders the unit DOWN, then that marker is showing. If the player Orders AMBUSH, then you place the Blank side and the other Ambush token. For any other order, it has just the blank side marker.

Later, the player springs the Ambush, so you pull that token. OR, if the Ambush unit reacts with a down, you flip the marker over (to the down side) and pull the Ambush marker.

Wonderful! Just what I wanted, thanks Dan

I think I understand Elmo. Unfortunately, the way I print them and mount them on felt or rubber doesn't lend itself to double sided so I'll just keep doing a separate Down and Ambush token. Thanks for the idea though.

Everyone else, thank you. I'm glad you find them of use. Let me know if there is any Division specific Tokens you'd like. I already have a request for US 1st Infantry Division and a Falshirmjager set. I'll also be doing a 2. SS set for me.

Man, thats great stuff! Thanks a lot.

Minesp Inactive Member20 Oct 2012 5:09 a.m. PST

They are great!!
Maybe a generic british set in addition to the paras one would be nice.
If possible a guards set for the soviets and german 352. Infanterie Division.

Thanks!!!

CptKremmen20 Oct 2012 2:32 p.m. PST

Just put up an FJ set and a Panzer Lehr set. What would you like to see on the Japanese tokens? USMC logo I assume for the marines.

I just put the 352. up on the site, same link as above. I'll work on the Guards and the Pacific stuff Sunday during football.

Desert Rats & Soviet Guards!

Thanks a lot, the new set are outstanding!

CptKremmen21 Oct 2012 9:42 a.m. PST

Pretty easy on Japanese.

The white flag with the red dot in middle or the rising sun one white flag with red dot and lots of red rays coming out from it?

Andy

comradetexas Supporting Member of TMP21 Oct 2012 11:58 a.m. PST

Roger that. Look for it tomorrow.

comradetexas Supporting Member of TMP24 Oct 2012 4:59 p.m. PST

Working on the Japanese as we speak. It's harder than you'd think to do one that looks good.

CptKremmen25 Oct 2012 3:13 p.m. PST

But it will be so good when you manage it. :)

comradetexas Supporting Member of TMP26 Oct 2012 8:59 a.m. PST
