Adepticon Tournament Objective Counters

The Gallery page is updated with pics of the three objective counters created for the 2007 Adepticon Gladiator and 40K Championship.  The markers will be a fun add-on to the normal tournament fair:  not only will you compete to control the markers during the game, and get to keep them once the game is over, but you will receive a bonus in the subsequent game!  The objectives are one-piece resin models and will be provided unpainted.

Creating and casting the objectives was a fun little project.  Calling myself a sculptor is a bit of a stretch, how about assembler? The markers began life as plastic card, floor tile and a bit of green stuff.  I think I see another How-To article coming out of this. 

One of the bigger challenges was learning to cast in volume.   Because every table at Adepticon needed a marker, that means I needed to cast 90 copies of each objective.   Not wanting to try this one cast at a time, I created “production” molds for each of the markers with 6 cavities.   Saved a lot of time only having to cast 15 sets instead of 90.
