Two of the key components of Steamroller scenarios are objective markers and flags. Normally at club we use cardboard tokens cut to the appropriate size and a D20 to mark damage, which is ok until either the dice gets knocked or a stiff breeze moves the token.
There are obviously better solutions to this. Various companies make plastic objective and flag tokens, but we don’t have any of those around here and they are fairly generic. The best approach, visually, is to use an actual objective or flag mounted onto a 50mm or 40mm base. I made two flags to accompany my Retribution army and these have been great, but I need a third. We also have a set of flag markers with flags on them at SPIF which have been handy.
Unfortunately I haven’t had the inspiration or time to make real objective markers, and since using my Cygnar, I really wanted some Cygnar themed objectives and flags as well.
So after an evening playing on the computer, I made up some base inserts to use in 50mm bases for objectives, and then I did some for 40mm bases for flags. And then, because I didn’t want to waste space on the paper, I did some objective markers and flags for the other factions. All of the other factions.
And here they are in PDF format for anyone to use.
The basic idea is really simple. Print and laminate these, and cut them out using a compass cutter (I’ve marked the centre of each insert with helpful a red, white or black dot). And because they are laminated, damage can be recorded directly on the objective. Neat huh?
UPDATE: If you didn’t want separate objectives and flags for every faction you own, here are some generic inserts featuring the Steamroller logo. Enjoy!
