I guess it will just have to be a D8 alongside the unit then.

Then again you could use some other sort of marker to indicate points - flags, heads on spikes, a dial... ?

OK I'm getting a bit silly now !

The Dice Shop does smaller than normal D8s as part of polysets. Not sure if they could do sets of just D8s, might be worth asking them.

If you're looking for non-standard dice they are a great place to start looking.

I'm using Ubiquity Dice for command rolls for my King of Kish rules which I first came across there when looking for a pair of average dice! White for "Inept" commanders, Red for "Competent" commanders and Blue for "Inspired" commanders.

Their +/- variation dice are a mechanism for which there is no known rule Smiley But I still fancy getting one or two .... I am truly lost Cheesy

They're also the source of the 5mm dice I use to mark cohesion and to indicate a units current orders in the game.

Not silly at all!

For the command and magic points you could fashion some sort of a 'camp' diorama, with places to put the extra dice associated with the CP total?  And maybe a magic area with glass beads for the MPs?

Hmmm... Undecided

Buy plenty of Matron's sculpts now!

If he keeps using the chainsaw, the value of his work will soon go up.

How about adding pips to some of your D6s

Or swap colour of die once you hit 7!

That's what I do ... green, yellow, red ... up to 18 points can be tracked this way.
I use 2 (hits and morale) or 3 space trays (CPs/MPs, hits, morale)  and center them on the rear of my bases
