This is a quick product review of another eBay purchase. This time it’s some shield indicators and hull point markers (which come as a set, link here). For those not aware, in the game you must indicate the side your shields are facing for each Knight and only that 90 degree is protected by the shield. With five Knights on the table, it would be easy for either my opponent (or, far more likely, me) to lose track of their individual facings.
First impressions are that they are very neatly made, with each of the side indicators coming from half a full circle as can be seen below. The acrylic feels thick enough for the job at about 2-3mm and the seller (eBay seller Mechanical Warhorse, or via their website which is MechanicalWarhorse.com) had a number of different colour choices at the time.
Also bundled with them was a hull point counter. This again is nicely made, and even though I didn’t actually realise it was a bundled item until it arrived it’ll probably be a useful thing in game. My original plan was to use a normal dice on the base, but these will do.
Downside to these is the postage cost from the US which came to £19 - which is very excessive for a few pieces of acrylic. It would definitely be inhibitory if ordering just one, but if there are a few people in your gaming group with Knights it might be a good idea to pool the money and only pay for one shipping.
