Looks awesome. Have you considered giving them a quick black-wash to take the cartoon edge off of some of the very bright colors, or do you prefer that look?

These are cardboard, not plastic. I'm not sure the cardboard would appreciate a wash!

Or were you referring to the minis?


In either case, the coins were just a test batch to see the card thickness, the print quality and the 3 different sizes I was considering (largest size not pictured). I like the look of the silver coins with the green-blue patina / rust and the scratches.

However, I really don't like the off-center look they have. The next iteration won't have a printed circular counter, since that just makes the off-centerness so apparent.

This is the look I was going for:





Weird fact: the symbols on the coins are actually Chinese, since Chinese coins were the primary currency in feudal Japan!

I'd really like to have translucent-purple poker chips for the game...

Can't say I've ever seen that. You can probably get bingo chips in that color. I'm going to do some googling tonight (after kiddo's are in bed) and see if I can come up with something like that in a poker chip.

I haven't seen them either, was just thinking out loud (?).
Was also planning on doing some research eventually.

I did some googling, but came up empty on the translucent poker chips. I don't think they exist, but would love to be proven wrong.

I definitely meant the minis. :-p I prefer more natural finished looks so I tend to do dark washes to make bright colors mute a little before dry-brushing to finish. Just personal preference though.

I couldn't find anything either. Oh well, sorry to highjack the thread.

Any chance you will make the files available when you are finished?

No promises, but that's what I've generally done in the past!
