A few years ago, I read about 'counter sleds,' particularly those available from a company called RDOXX Inc. When I saw these in action, I was quite impressed at how tiny bits of wood could add so much to wargames! While I don't intend this list to be a promo for RDOXX (since I know there are other alternatives to these things (many of which have been hand-made by several of you)), I believe most of the photos in this list are using the sleds from this company.

If you know of any other photos of counter sleds in action, feel free to add them!

Multi-colored, Counter Sled goodness! Beautiful use of the larger (1" size) sleds.

These are the small 1/2" size sleds. There's just something cool about the counters aligned this way, but I do worry that sudden gusts might tip the counters (particularly stacked counters) from the sleds. Any insight?

More painted 1" sleds. These really do look gorgeous with the thick, beautifully illustrated Phalanx counters.

Lots of small counters (and counter sleds) in action here.

More of my sleds (Siege of Jerusalem is my pic too). Both were played solo, so no problem with visibility - in fact, it enhances it, since I can see everything from a seated position!
