Soviet casualties and Souda Bay War Cemetery

   In Bolt Action games there is always the need to point out somehow your army's casualties. Some people are using tokens, other - dice, and some a combination of the two. This is the case here, tokens with a socket for dice! 
   I had five Soviet casualties from Black Tree Design and wanted to use them as tokens. The five casualties came in three variants so I added helmets and weapons to differentiate them.

The tokens

   As usually, I used putty, little rocks and sand for the base. For the sockets I used matches.

A rifleman

A Guard with submachine gun

A sniper

A Guard with a captured Panzerfaust

A Siberian veteran

   It is estimated that the Soviets have suffered the highest number of casualties during WW2 with roughly 11.4 million military deaths! 

   Speaking of military deaths, recently a good friend of mine came from the States and we visited the War Cemetery of World War 2 in Souda Bay of Crete.

   That's it for today! Stay tuned for more!


  1. These work so well! I hadn't considered casualty markers yet, but will now that I have seen these! Great idea.

    1. Thank you Michael! Yes, the markers help a lot during the game.
