Hi All,

I am creating a series of generic token (for sci-fi wargames at the moment), the idea being is you ever loose any you can have a standby set of replacement tokens.

Obviously I cannot reproduce exact copies of existing game token for copyright reasons but if you have the opportunity for some newly designed replacements what sort of things would you be looking for.

All suggestions welcome.

I have fire markers, ojective markers requested at the moment. Anyone like to add to the list?

Skulls for damage markers are always handy.
Generic target marker like a rifle sight.

If you value your sanity make sure you don't make heart shaped ones.

For Star Wars miniatures we could use "Door Open", "Door Locked" "Door Destroyed" tokens.
