Im sure I missed this in one of the posts in the 48 pages of posts; but how are people marking the health of a unit that you need to move about the field. I cant imagine that markers will stay put. paper clips would warp the cards. And a sleeve/dry erase marker method seems best to me, but Im not sure I like it... What do you see or do to resolve this?

You can use dry erase markers right on the cards themselves

Whilst you can mark the cards I recommend penny sleeves. These will protect the cards and with some factions going out of circulation (and the publisher considering not re-publishing them) I think it is advisable to protect them as best able.

Remember, you don't need to sleeve all of them, just the ones you're playing with that day. A single pack of 50 sleeves would be more than enough, so it's not an expensive option.

The newer cards in particular are pretty resistant to dry erase, but I definitely recommend and prefer using sleeves. As Andrew pointed out, you only need sleeves for your army -- probably less than a dozen at a time.

Also cheap sleeves cost a dollar for a hundred sleeves.
