Found an easy way to make tokens and stole a bits container instant Infinity set!

*squinting* can't make out what you did; they look shiny though. Explain yourself!

Print out tokens of choice + 1" hole punch from michaels + epoxy "bubble caps" = very quick relatively inexpensive markers! Got the idea from miniwargaming (who got it from other people in the hobby).

The "bubble cap" is a 1 inch diameter acrylic circle (they are super thin I think I should have gone thicker they have all different diameters and thickness) with an epoxy backing. You simply punch out the token (you can see that I didn't size the tokens to exactly one inch since there is a white border) and then peel the bubble cap off its sheet and press them together. Once you get the hang of it they tend to be fairly spot on (the first couple didn't line up exactly). The most expensive thing is the hole punch for $15 or so. The bubble caps come in sheets of 100 for $6-10 iirc from amazon (they are like $2-3 in the US which always irritates me).

lol yes that is exactly what they are. My wife said the same thing to me when I was making them.

They would be handy for 40k, but I don't know of anywhere to get circular images to punch out and stick. Most of the images for tokens are square, or some other random shape.

What method did you use?

I'm crazy excited to see the new profiles, hopefully today, otherwise next week they are saying. bounce

I printed out the tokens, using that personalized token creator thinger I posted on the facebook page, then laminated the sheets (useful to have an elementary teacher as a GF)

then I cut out the tokens and glued em to 25mm bases! You can buy a pack of 25mm slotta bases (80) for like 11 bucks.

I also printed off all the hacking abilities in card form and laminated them too! Should help this old brain remembering shit

Indeed I used that creator tool you had linked as well. Way more helpful to get the tokens you want rather than printing pages with two tokens that you want on them.

Right now i've only skimmed the hacking abilities since it was daunting the first time. flash cards would make it way easier to remember stuff. I'm glad Tohaa don't have many hacking options yet, means there is less to remember!

I have to figure out what I'm going to do for templates. I haven't thought of an easy way to make them and I don't want to buy the plastic ones since with Makauls throwing smoke in every direction I will need quite a few! Not to mention flamethrowers and shotguns that will make their way into my lists.

I've seen and used tokens for smoke before, especially when a full template won't fit where you want to put it. The ones I found were the image of the smoke template shrunk down to 25mm. Place the token where the center of the template is supposed to go, then just hold the template above it when you need to see the actual size. Should be helpful for smoke spam. Smile

How much are the mats to get this process going?

If you want the same as mine you can check my post that replies to dusktiger for a decent breakdown of everything I used. Runs about 25-30 bucks for the first 100 or so. After that it drops to 6-8 dollars for each extra 100.
