Following my review of AJ’s Field of Glory markers, Justin over at Veni, Vidi, Vici sent me a set of their own FoG markers for review which duly arrived today and as I had finished work early I managed to get a few snaps off so I could get on with the review…
These are not currently available on their website as they are waiting for work on their laser before cutting more, but some are available via eBay and should be listed here. The sample set are a blue-green and come in a single zip bag. There are currently other colours available on eBay e,g, orange and they are £4.95 plus £1.50 shipping.
So what do you get?
- 3 (three) ambush markers
- 6 (six) disrupted
- 6 (six) fragmented
- 6 (six) broken
The big, so to speak, difference between these and the previous batch is that these are much smaller.
And are less ‘intrusive’ when next to the units.
Again, I can’t fault the quality. Neatly cut and the white lettering is more subdued. My only concern is the size. I found them a little fiddly to manipulate but that may just be my chubby fingers! The one colour for all makes it easy to have a different set for each player and the ambush markers are a bonus.
A few people on TMP (well one!) commented that they prefer more subtle markers that are less intrusive on the table. For those, these would be better as they are small, neat and with a suitable choice of colour wouldn’t stand out too much. I have to admit I prefer the larger ones, but that is a personal choice as I also like the colour coding in the larger set. I hope to get a game in again soon and will try both sets in anger!
Thanks to Justin for the chance to review.
