FINAL CHAIN OF COMMAND TRACKER "MARK V"
On completion of my MARK III version of my Chain of Command Tracker I constructed a larger tracker "Mark IV" and packed it with all sorts of information. I thought this was going to be my final tracker but after using it while playing Chain of Command game, I found it was not as effective. It was much easier viewing the effect of rolling "Bad things happen" on a reference sheet rather than on the Tracker.
I decided I needed to make a "simpler Tracker" but I also wanted one which looked a bit retro (WW 2 like).
Upon viewing a imagine of a 1940 British wireless Set #18 , I decided to base my new design on it.
|Mark V Tracker made completely from MDF , a couple of bolts and nuts, perspex, sheet metal, 2 x earth magnets and painted Black and German Field-grey. The white writing I painted by hand, I also painted some fake screws on the tracker.
Imagine shows 2 x Chain of Command Dice have been accumulated (available to be used) and 1 x pip has been accumulated on the Chain of Command Dice with the Force Morale set on 10.
|The tracker accommodates 5 x 16 mm dice (for Regular troops) or 6 x 12 mm dice (for use with Elite troops) .
|This image compares the size of the "Mark IV" and "Mark V" tracker, 28mm figure thrown in for scale.
(As you can see, the Mark IV is packed with info)
