Hey folks! would like to know if there are any recommendations for upgrades to champions.

So far the best meat and wood are stonemaier games.

Blame tokens i have found made out of wood which are meh.
Favor tokens are also meh.

Meeple replacements (I have the horned ones) but wouldn't mind replacing some with actual miniatures of some kind would be cool but DONT want to assemble anything.

I already have metal coins (near and far ones work good)

Another CRAZY idea is any ideas on how to get my wife drawn into the game on a leader board would be awesome! if any artist could do it for a reasonable price I would be interested.

ANY recommendations are welcome. Wifes fav game would like to surprise her with some nice stuff.

Wish I had any suggestions for you but I’ve had trouble finding solid upgrades as well. I also got the Stonemaier meat and wood but not impressed with the other upgrades. Great idea on using the Near and Far coins!

Good luck! Custom art on the leader board is a cool gift idea!

The miniatures from Blood Rage would be perfect.

Take a photo of your wife's face and trim it. Then stick it over a face on a player board.

yeaaa that would be the Boring way to do it. I wanted her to match the art style lol holding some weapons or what not. if i find an artist to do it I can just make my own board with laminate and print the art out. I would come up with two abilities for her to.

They look real nice.
But you definitely don't need to pay extra for "damage markers".
That component isnt used enough to warrent paying extra.

Those are the stonemaier brand i was talking about. just sold through the website.

It's actually a little bit cheaper to do the bundle to then buy them individually even with the damage markers

as an update. I really like the tokens in the HATE board game for blame. the skull on the pike would work well.

These might work for favor. but would be confusing for people at the table proably. replacing the horn with a hatchet.

I just made my own with oven bake clay.

Super easy to do.

Im settling on top shelf gamer website for some upgrades. The plus side I will be able to use a lot of this stuff in other games.

going with the deluxe token bundle for food and meat
white scroll tokens for favor i believe is what I will settle on.
skull tokens for blame.
I am planing on replacing age track marker with something like a keychain or something of that nature. Thor hammer.
Might buy the horn for blood rage game night pack for 1st player marker. or also find a pewter key chain type thing.

Then I will use the vikings out of blood rage to replace the meeples.

Should be pretty sweet.

Super easy if you didn't need them to have the flat bottom to stand up.

Personally, I like the ability to stack the favor, blame, and gold tokens...although i might bang up a handful of pennies and spray paint them for gold at some point.
