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 gruesome

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

it's not my thing

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

I use casualty figures

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

I have no problem with it

I have no objection to casualty figures.

casualties are part of war

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