Hey yall,

I think I want to re-base and potentially paint my minis, and it will probably take me quite a while, so in the meantime I was hoping to simply use the monster tokens.

My question is this: does anyone know of nice looking, inexpensive stands that will hold the monster tokens upright, to give them a better feel on the board?

(I searched a bit in the forums and didnt see anything)

Hi,
I suspect you might find many ideas if you check the Arkham Horror discussions as tokens is all we got in that game.

This is what I did for my Arkham Horror monsters back in the day:
AH Stands

Yup, I think this might work! Buying the sheets in stores maybe a little too pricey for my blood, but it looks like Amazon has some cheaper options for me. Thanks a bunch!

Hey, just FYI my group uses the base cards as standard (we hate the minis), and they look fine just laying down. Just letting you know in case it saves you money and agro

I guess having them stand up would help add to the immersion, thats all I was thinking.

These transparencies are a little more work than I was hoping for. I would like to find just standee holders or whatever that would fit the chits without tearing them.

Do you own Dead of Winter? I found there were a few leftover from DoW that I suspect might be perfect.

It looks like Fantasy Flight sells plastic stands. I wonder if these would work with the monster chits...

Yes. I'm using those. They are the FFG standard standees included in many of their games using tokens, eg. Arkham Horror, Battlestar Galactica etc.
I have like 50+ surplus of them since most game don't require you to use all of them at once. Guess they are assuming that you'll store everything in stands, but it'll take much more space than without.
