I thought this was a nifty idea what do you guys think.
I am going to use some Epic 40k models for my wound counters on my tyrants and carnifexs. I still have some of the old screamer fex models and the old tyrants, so basicly they will run around with 3 little Mini Me's on the board and when they loose a wound they loose a mini.
Any other neat ways you guys use for wound counters?
That is.......The most awesome idea I have heard in a long time!
Too bad I dont have any Epic stuff laying around....perhaps Ebay...
I would like to see a pic of that if you ever set it up....especially if everything is painted in the same color scheme...

Cotton woll dyed to be the colour of Tyranid blood could work. It could be mixed with a little PVA to look like it's thicker and not mist coming out of the thing. However what colour is Tyranid blood. I have heard that it is purple but black has also been stated. I would think I like green as it is a common colour for alien blood. Also my Tyranids are purple and black so if I were to do blood on them it would not show up.
Another thing that comes to mind for wound markers is to use ooze. The kind of ooze that comes with a toy. It is lots of fun to play with ooze. But perhaps ooze applied to a Tyranid in lesser and then larger quantities could help to show injury. However the ooze would gum up the model. Perhaps some small cavities in the base could be made, a small pit for each lost wound to show it is dripping blood. Cool to use Epic models. I still have a few of them around. You could also use spare Rippers if no Epic models are handy. Because symbiote rippers can't work in 5th edition people won't get confused about any Rippers on a creature's base.

On a somewhat similar note, have any of you done any modeling for Toxic Miasma? I imagine painted and pulled cotton balls (which what reminded me of this) could work. The Epic scale models seem pretty cool as far as damage counters go. I usually use a dice at the base, but something else to consider is the removal of limbs if you magnetized them.

This other one I converted it to use barbed strangler gun barrels and put green stuff in them. buglands
The idea of using cotton woll for toxic miasma could work well and give you a gross, icky look. However it is best to dye them with ink or food colouring or water down some paint. Though food colouring might come off and get on the model.
Magnetizing the models to show wound markers is a fun idea. A Carnifex could have arms, it's carapace and the head all done up to look hurt and another identical set to look clean. These parts could be swapped as the thing takes damage. The regenerate head would work well to show it has taken a wound. The other bits would just need damaged claws cuts dripping blood.

Maybe some one needs to tear appart an old He-man action figure.. and put the Battle damage he-man chest in a tyrant.
(For thoes that dont remember you press the chest and it changes from normal to having a cut on it, press it again and the cut gets bigger, and so on)
I remember those battle damage types. I had the Skeletor one. However the wee catch inside him that meant the damage could be hidden broke. Therefore my battle damage Skeletor just ended up looking like he was wearing rubbish, messy clothes. Not a battle-damage Skeletor anymore but a low-life Skeletor.
