No-Frills Infinity Markers


The Infinity momentum continues. The other night during our test game we found that markers weren't just handy, but necessary. On the flaps of the box of my starter set there were four markers printed and on the main website you can get all the markers/counters you could ever hope for. I cut out the box flaps and the downloaded ones were printed in color on cardstock. For all of these it was simply a matter of cutting them out with scissors and using white glue to stick them to the tops of round slottabases. That's it, easy cheesy.


As a bonus I snagged Ray's Ariadna starter box the other night and got a quick group pic of it. Ray does what I cannot, well, besides paint to a very high degree he is a stalwart studio scheme kind of guy, and his stuff always looks good. I've been gaming with Ray on and off since I was sixteen, so going on almost thirty years now. Over that time we've done a lot of trading and bartering figs so I'm lucky to have a lot of his stuff in my collection. As for these guys, it's just always nice to play against figs that are painted well.

  1. I must admit, I really like the Ariadna figs

    1. We had two players claim "dibs" rather quickly for that faction or else you would be seeing me paint up commandos and werewolves as well. Ray's figs do look good.

  2. Ive seen markers on slotted bases done on the beastsofwar website, which is the site that really started getting me interested in infinity. it seems to be a pretty sound method

    whenever an order is used, they just flipped the marker over.

    1. Hadn't thought Of flipping it over, but then haven't used them action yet either. Apparently the army deals offered during Infinity week on beastsofwar were pretty great too

  3. Great stuff! Luckyjoe put me onto the idea of using printable plastic shrinkie sheets and a hobby punch... Never did get around to it though.

    1. That would work great actually, a bit fancier than my low-tech version but this one's a snap to do.
