One house rule that my gaming circle has is what we like to call hospital dice! Hospital dice are basically any dice that are white. We use white dice for wound allocation, it sort of makes sense, wounds are certainly associated with hospitals and white is sort of a medical colour...
We play that hospital dice cannot double up for anything else, they are for showing what wounds the models have and that is all. If you accidentally roll a white die, whether the result is good or bad, it doesn't count and you have to re-roll a different coloured dice.
Talking about showing wounds on your models, we always mark our dice with how many wounds the model has left e.g. A Necron Lord loses one wound so we put a white dice on his base showing a two, as he has two wounds left! I have noticed many players marking the wounds by showing how many wounds the model has taken, so in the example above they would mark it with a one!
I think our way is best, as you can instantly look at a model and see how many more wounds you have to do to kill it, without having to know how many wounds it had originally. Very useful when you are playing something that has allot of multi wounded creatures like Daemons for example.
I am wondering what other wound marking systems others are using, and how effective they are? How about the GW markers, does anyone use them?
