On the hobby table: Objective markers

Hello, and welcome back to ‘On the hobby able’. Today, I’ll be showing you three markers I’ve made for my AoS Skirmish campaigns, ranging from a priceless treasure chest, to a decaying Crypt Horror that’s been buried (or clawing out) in the damp soil.

These markers can also be used for different battle plans that require objective markers, or objects to defend. So when it came to creating my own markers, I didn’t need to wait long to find some bitz that would look great as markers.

Below are three markers I’m currently working on, I hope you’ll find these markers to be inspiring and odd!

A severed hand from a Verminlord Warpseer, still clenching his glowing artefact of corruption. This marker would be a good choice for Chaos alliance players, especially Skaven players seeking to reclaim or retrieve a rival clan artefact.

The remains of a Crypt Horror can be both a well earned reward, and a bad omen. For their bones can be used by the Flesh-Eater Courts to create bone weapons and magical trinkets  for both champions and their delusional leaders. This objective is easily built using spare parts from the Crypt Horror kit, as well as using a spare square base (which is great for objective markers, as I have too many square bases that I don’t use anymore).

Last but not least, the goal of all plundering raiders and treasure seekers, the good old treasure chest! This chest was taken from Games Workshops Lord of the Rings starter set (no longer produced), which came with other small objective markers for the game (whatch this Space for more objective markers from the set soon!). It was a simple step of glueing the chest onto a circle base, which looks pretty cool after painting the marker.

That’s all for now, I’ll be back with more objective markers soon, as well as some new markers for buffs and effects to represent warscroll effects. Until then, I hope you have enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you guys next time!
