Play Miniatures Games without Minis?! Yep!

THW games are playable with minis, but what if you don’t have any or want to try a new period without spending a lot of time or money buying and painting new ones?

Many of our  5150 titles include card stock color counters. You can play with them as they are or if you want, as I do, use this simple and easy way to enhance these counters.

These are for  the upcoming 5150: Hammer & Anvil. A standalone compatible game for vehicle combat in the 5150 universe. These are a bit different than our previous counters as all the stats for all the vehicles are printed on the counters. We’ll be doing this going forward with our new games. Now let’s get started.

 Here’s the card stock sheet of forty 1″ counters for Hammer & Anvil. Each counter includes the type, name, movement rates, Armor Piercing Rating of its main gun, any machine guns it may have, and frontal, side and rear Armor Value. This stops you from having to refer to the book for vehicle stats.

 First you cut the counters out. I use a paper cutter for the rows, but scissors works great.

 Next I will be mounting them on 1″, thick, mounting tape. I got mine at Amazon for less than $5, but you can find it at office stores and other places. This gives them more weight and durability.

 Here are all the counters mounted and ready to go.

Here they are on an All Things Zombie board game map. You can use board games if you have them, but I use mine on a table with terrain. 

Watch for Part 2 to see a detailed Bat Rep of
5150: Hammer & Anvil

Here’s another way we’ll be offering our games to be played without minis.
