POLL DESCRIPTION

Some rules encourage the use of casualty figures - miniatures representing dead (or sometimes wounded) soldiers. This is sometimes done to mark the location of bodies (which become obstacles on the tabletop). For other games, casualties are a way of tracking a unit's losses or morale state.

Opponents of casualty figures feel that it's wrong to use figures representing dead bodies.

How do you feel about casualty figures?

it's not my thing

I don't think I'll ever use casualty figures.

it's gruesome

I find it distasteful to have "dead" figures on the tabletop.

I have no problem with it

I have no objection to casualty figures.

I use casualty figures

I use casualty figures in my gaming, and find nothing wrong with them.

casualties are part of war

Casualties should be represented on the tabletop, or else you are making war too clean and antiseptic.
