496 - Bolt Action Scenic Pin Markers/Order Dice

Hullo - I thought some of you might like what I made last fortnight:
They're 'Heroclix' bases, which function as order dice holders and pin markers for those folks who - like me - get easily confused.

I must point out, that this is not my original idea: it's taken wholesale from the marvellous work of Jarec at SIX-D-SIX (link here) who also gives such a smashing tutorial that even I was able to follow it. And boy, are these quick to make!

For once, I'll let the pics speak for themselves...
With thanks again to the excellent Jarec,

- Drax.

  2. Very smart. I really like how they match the bases of your figures, a cool accessory :-)

  4. I'm with Z - no idea what they are for, but the seem snazzy, and that tutorial was nice and simple to follow. Looks like an idea that can be applied to a range of games requiring a similar solution.

    1. Yup - I did think about it for wound tracking, but frankly it'd be simply over-engineering for such a use...

  8. Sorry to bump this thread but can you tell me where to get the new dials from? I'm thinking of just writing my own but apparently there are some printable versions about as in the top right of picture 1??? Many thanks

  10. Drop me an email, mate (check 'about me') and I'll send you the ones I used... which I reckon are an improved version anyway!

  12. Bumping again - I'd like to try these out on our 54mm 1/32nd scale Bolt Action armies. Could you point us to where the heroclix bases come from please? TIA.

    1. Hullo, Mike - welcome aboard!

      I just bought a job lot of random Heroclix figures on eBay - dirt cheap.

      I must say, I've not heard of Bolt Action in 54mm...have you a link or a site I could take a look at, please?
