Chain of Command Germans and Shock Tokens

Whilst on a roll with Chain of Command and my 15mm Second World War lead pile I decided to put a new German platoon together using some left over Plastic Soldier Company figures specifically for CoC. These will be augmented by the figures I previously painted:

Also, I wanted to make some shock tokens for the game. As luck would have it, I have a load of casualty figures that I have never used for anything. I also have a lot of dice holders left-over from my Bl├╝cher bases: a perfect combination. It was a quick task to knock these German tokens together:

And these Soviet tokens.

As you can see there is enough space to hold up to three dice on each. This should be more than enough to track a unit's shock during a game.

I'm happy with how these came out and they will be useful for other games along with CoC.

Over on the Storm of Steel Youtube channel the latest video is a military history video of the development and combat role of the 8.8cm German Anti-Aircfraft/Tank gun. Have a watch here, and please subscribe to the channel:


  1. They look great. I like the casualties on the marker bases- they make mine look quite pedestrian.



    1. Cheers Pete. I'm sure yours work perfectly well for the job! I always struggle with what to do with casualty figures, so this was a good solution.

  2. They do look good - well done that man! Have you thought about using different dice colours instead of (or as well as) multiple dice? e.g. a green die is the number shown, yellow die is number +6 and red die is number +12

    1. Thank you! That's a good idea, the different colours could also stand for shock and casualties on multi-figure bases. It's definitively worth thinking about some more.
