Several years ago I picked up a bunch of figures from Redoubt's 'Three Musketeers' range. I've painted up most of them and we've had some rollicking skirmish games. Nonetheless I came across a couple lonely castings awaiting attention so today I did up the fellow in brown with the green tabard.
As you can see from the photo he's taken a bad riposte from his opponent. I been wanting some wound markers that were a bit more grisly for skirmish gaming and I had seen these great markers over at Anatoli's Game Room so I thought I'd try to make a set for myself. I ordered a batch of clear acrylic discs from Litko in two sizes and then painted them in layered inks (Brown, Chestnut and Red).
I'll use these for skirmish games like SAGA, Operation Squad and Strange Aeons.

I thought the larger size markers will be handy for tracking hits on multiple-wound creatures or to symbolizing a unit meeting a particularly sticky end.

Oh, and 5 points for me!
