PostSubject: Combat drugs - how do you track yours?   Wed Jun 28 2017, 18:22

Having played 8th now and constantly forgetting what each unit had for their combat drugs, I was wondering what you folks use to keep track of them?

Has anyone created any custom stuff they use I could have etc?

I have some 7th ed button tokens that would be great if they matched the current drugs.

I'm planning to make some laminated unit cards with drug slots and stuff.

for psychic powers I use magic the gathering sized proxy cards in sleaves. You can also write on them with a dry erase marker to denote what power is on which unit. Something like that can be done for drugs.

Or just write them down. It should be easy to remember what is what

I use multi colored flat marbles that you can get at any craft store ... Each color represents a different drug ... They used to be the way I marked what units had pain tokens back in 5th Ed. So now they mark which unit has what drugs

Cool thanks everyone. I like the token/marble ideas as markers for the units. They would be quite simple to do. The card sleeve idea with a drywipe marker would also be a good one. Will give both a try and see which one I like using

The infinity players at my club are making some nice tokens by gluing paper tokens on see through floorprotectors for furniture.

Sound cool. Easy way to get a nice design with minimal effort (print something you think is cool).

I have a small section on the rim of each base that is colour coordinated with the rest of the unit. And unique to each unit within the same faction. A piece of paper to the side with a list of the available drugs in one column and a tally of which units took that drug in the opposite column (+1S: Red Hellions, Succubus, Blue Wyches) does it for me.

Probably not as fun as tokens, but less likely to get confusing if I have a multiple combat (and we break for lunch before it ends).

I'm using rings.

I only use Reavers and not Wyches, so ring tokens fit nicely over the stork of flying bases.

I bought a load of 2cm diameter mdf discs from ebay for about £3, sprayed them and wrote the drug effect on them. Cheap and easy. Just plonk one down next to the unit (and remember to move it when you move the unit!). Also use the same discs for other things like PGL hits, psychic power effects etc.

Way back in earlier codex when we last had this style of Combat drug chart I made these...

<Edit, It seems as a forum newbie I am forbidden from posting pictures so use your imagination>


They are Paracetamol tablets (cost less than 20pence) sprayed with varnish (so they dont disolve when painted) and then coloured with GW paints.

Just place the coloured pill on the table next to the unit during the battle (I also had a chart printed for reference e.g. Red Pill = +1 Attack etc)

I still have these markers, I now just need to print a new chart with the new drug effects.

I'm making some token markers, I'll add them to the thingiverse site when finished.

I used to write them down, but I think I'll order & paint some wood tokens, like the count suggested.

It'll look like a lot fancier Smile

Drugs for the discriminating palate


Shadow war Armageddon non-boring edition


The actual tokens fell of the back of a truck and I haven't seen them before in my life.
The design of the tokens are not owned by me and is shown for entertainment purposes only.
Unless they fall under the "fair use" clause or something. In which case I might know a guy...

I flay my last opponent and write it on their tanned hide.
Like a proper True Kin.
