"Arc of Fire" rules are one of those systems I tend to return to and I've used them regularly since they were published. I'm not a big fan of markers on the tabletop and in AoF there are some required but in the past I've tended to just write the various status and conditions on the orbats I produce for the games. This keeps the tabletop clear but you tend to continually be turning figures over to get their ID to check on status, this can get a bit irritating and slows the game down.
As a result I've decided to try using markers and see how it goes. In AoF you're not looking at masses, I'm looking at 3 markers for Tactical Modes for each unit, they display 1 of these 3 states at any one time, and for each figure you need to mark if its wounded or not and lastly wether the figures broken or not.
I use AoF mainly for my 20mm collections which are based individually on metal discs, I've discussed these before, the links here, 20mm Basing discs so I wanted to utilise these for the wounded and broken markers but for the Tactical Modes I opted for Warbases Acrylic marker service, here's the link Warbases
To start off with here's what warbases produced for me, quite pleased, as you only 1 of these per unit they're not too obvious on the tabletop.
The photos below show the construction. Dougie.
