@GenWilhelm there is no set size; however i do like the 3" neoprene disks people have been making- contrasting and it's easy to see which obsec models are in and which aren't

So in the tournaments I run we use the 3" from edge rule, because trying to measure accurately from center is just inviting some dumbassery
We also provided objective markers...I'm not sure on the size, I'll pull some out and measure them in the morning

As long as the objective markers are all the same size surely it doesn't matter if you measure from the edge or the centre? As long as its all the same, who cares!?

thanks, guys :smile:
the reason i asked was because some people in my group felt like they were being shorted by a couple of inches, as we were measuring to the centre of the objective, rather than from the edge of a 40mm base (or whatever the standard is).

if measuring from the edge of a 40mm base, just measure X" - 20mm and you'll have a measurement from the center *grumbles in metric and imperial being mixed"

I got annoyed at markers being covered making things even harder so I 3D-printed some objective markers that stand up on 25mm bases, in bright red PLA
Haven't had a problem after that

problem might be fitting those on buildings and stuff?

and I 3D printed numbered 40mm disks for proper games
the pillars we usually agree can only be placed on the ground ... as we play quite terrain heavy ... stops giving flyers a huge advantage
the discs we measure anything 2 inches away from the edge

the biggest issue I've been seeing is people not measuring vertical distances to objs
when they explicitly matter now
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Nov 23 2018 13:58
yeah same ... still assume it's a pillar
when it's a bubble from the centre
but , I think I recall some confusing context from the designers commentary and such that didn't help
I'd love to get some of the neoprene 3" discs ... but it's impossible to place them on anything but flat ground

and not up against the corners of buildings etc

Okay, slight update on objective markers from WGC 2017: 2 years ago we provided a set of CNC/laser cut wood markers, and they are 35mm in diameter. For WGCX this year we provided custom poker chips with our logo, those are 40mm in diameter.

I'm a fan of the metal cut coins that came in I think the 8th special edition?
perhaps 7th special edition

the resin has arrived. Low viscosity, for aquarium use.
Time to sacrifice some cultists from execution force soon.

"Sacrifice" is pretty much a primary function of cultists

plus heretic
first test seems ok, had a primed one sitting.. dipped him in the resin, swished him around, excess dripped off as hoped
if he is ok tomorrow, I'll get a fresh brush and coat one of my oldest space marines, the ugly ones with actual acrylic
then wait 7 days (fully cured), plonk in some water, wait, observe. If no whitening, I'm fine :D

Awesome man. Your project has been highly entertaining to keep up with!

good to hear, it's a learning experience for sure
I'm almost thinking about getting some stuff to do some casting... :P

lemme dig up the pictures of the marines DoI sent me..

It's DoI. Expect no less from them ;) And that is lvl 4 of 6...
but you pay for the quality, so... yeah
Joe Beddoe
@CrusherJoe
Nov 23 2018 19:19
That appears to be a quality worth paying for

and they're a very friendly bunch
I remember the old times when I ordered the fire raptor... 2014 or so and I added a few dollars so the, at the time, small team can get some pizza because I was so happy
that was the result :D

I got my very own vid proclaiming my awesomeness :D

They were also pretty helpful with the acrylic underwater problem

I was grinning for 2 days straight xD
