Guide, Doom and Fortune - Markers?

Nick speaking,

How do you remember where all your Eldar psychic powers are?

At the moment I use some token marker that I made up in Photoshop, nothing fancy, but when laminated and cut up they work pretty well at reminding me, and my opponent, where my Guide, Fortune and Doom powers are. I find them very handy, and I can have as many tokens as I need. Here are the markers I currently use and how they look on the table...



Although my markers are great, I am just wondering if I could come up with something a bit better! I am thinking of an actual model marker on a base of some description, but the question is what to use? I did see a very old Eldar model with a musical instrument once on eBay that looked interesting, but that was just a one off and it was just a single model. I would have to have at least three of each marker for when I am using both Eldrad and a normal Farseer in the same list!

I am sure that there must be a whole bunch of people out there that have come up with some cool ideas for this, so does anyone out there want to share them with me please! Full credit and link back for the best suggestions.

  1. For Guide you could have a helpful information booth and for Fortune a guardian bathing in piles of gold. As for Doom, I have to say a giant black arrow saying 'DOOMED' is just far too good not to use.

  2. Hi there mate.
     
    I had the same quandary but am I am in the process of building my markers to take to the Doubles Tourrnament in Nottingham next month. The models I am using are :

    New Tomb Banshee = Doom. Painted red.

    High Elf Mage with orb = Fortune. Painted green.

    High Elf Archer pointing = Guide. Painted blue.

    I have the Doom ready. It is in my Plog http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/showpost.php?p=154729&postcount=112 
    I'll have Fortune ready tonight and Guide probably tomorrow.

    Hope that helps!

  4. Ha ha, yes the doom marker is even better when you say "doom on you, doom on you" when you lay it down, I think that comes form the movie Ice Age lol

  9. They look great, really nice job, I think they are almost perfect markers, if you don't mind I will keep these in mind for my own markers :-)

  10. Cheers Mate. I'm really rather pleased with them myself! Please feel free to use the idea, as I know how hard it is to come up with the proper idea for markers. It's taken me ages and it was the release of the Tomb Banshee model that finally got the concept locked in place.
