Title: Casualties
Post by: Zippee on 11 September 2016, 07:54:48 PM
Any chance of casualty markers to go with the existing ranges?

There are an awful lot knocking around  - C19th has French, Prussian, Austrian and generic (very useful for WWI Russkies). There are also generic dead horses somewhere - very useful for all sorts of cavalry casualties. Lot of C18th casualties in AWI range.

But how does that help with the OCD?

As has been said, it should be CDO  :)

How can you stand to type when the letters don't all end up in alphabetical order, neatly grouped by frequency*.

No good just doing the capital ones....ooh there's a thought do they get grouped entirely separately by frequency, or in front of their small case brethren one-by-one, how about bold, italics, aargh! My dilemma pills are required nurse!

Bump.
Just a reminder for Leon about Napoleonic casualty figures. Basic infantry ones will do, plus a dying general in bicorne in heroic deathbed pose.....

There are ACW ones as well.

Just to update on this, we'll be getting casualties done in the next couple of months.

Just curious but what do people need casualty markers for and how many casualties are they supposed to represent?


Title: Re: Casualties
Post by: sultanbev on 22 January 2019, 12:25:41 PM
We use them to represent disordered units, it's better asthetically than using card/plastic markers with the word 'Disordered' written on it.

Disorder markers in the ACW, unit integrity markers in FOB2, disorder markers in WWI - better than a chit for aesthetic reasons.

Wound markers (half base) in MeG

Thanks for the explanation.  I don't used cards or markers so it never occurred to me.

I use them to record how many units each side has lost; breaking morale is an effect of proportion as well as absolute numbers.

Silly question ... but do the casualties move with the units?


Title: Re: Casualties
Post by: Leman on 23 January 2019, 07:54:50 AM
In my case yes as they are an indicator of unit status.


Title: Re: Casualties
Post by: fsn on 23 January 2019, 08:07:32 AM
Oh. OK.

I use a man with a flag.

Depends:

if it's being used as a unit status marker [disorder/disruption/combat loss] then yes

if it's being used as a marker for the location of the action/wreckage/medical evac requirement then no [except that medical evac probably moves the casualty]

What ?

The one that walks in front of your car, to warn people that you're approaching ?

No, one that stands behind with a smallish flag. TBH I can't remember the entire scheme bit it's something like:
  • Brown - pinned/stalled (hit the earth)
  • Yellow - broken (scardy cats)
  • Green - wavering / disorganised (raw)
  • Red - uncontrolled charge (does that really need explaining?)

Again, I think the idea came from someone on the forum.

We use grey or black smoke in Black Powder games to represent disorder. Then the casualty marker for the number of hits, normally 1 to 3 - much nicer than a small die (no pun intended).
