6th Edition Gaming Aid
I of course needed to make my own. One very good idea is a flip file.
I spend about $14 US and about 15 minutes to make.
There is quite a large number of printed items one needs to carry in 6th edition and a good way is needed to keep it organized, accessible and "non permanent".
In other words you need to replace the information regularly.
I opted for a soft "pleather" binder with a clear front.
The reason is; I have real trouble remembering the order of steps to start a game of all things and find myself wanting to roll for table sides or warrior traits at the wrong time...or forgetting to roll for night fight etc.
This model puts the pre game stuff right on the cover where I need it most...when I am getting started.
I took some post-it note pointed labels to apply to the see through plastic holders to indicate generated psychic powers as I roll for them each game.
Much quicker to remember and change each game.
There are empty slots for army lists, etc.
I also included the actual cards, a photo copy would have worked even better...but since I bought them...might as well include them.
This also solved the issue of carrying around the WD with the flyer rules for the Marines and Orks with me everywhere as well.
The only thing I am missing is the Warlord traits which I will just type up or photo copy.
I found a great pdf copy of the game set up pages HERE
Now, ,before anyone comments on copy write. These are my feelings. I bought the big book, I bought DV for the little book, I bought the cards, the chaos cards, the special dice x 2. If GW had made these reference cards for $5 bucks...would have bought them too...so, I really don't think I, or anyone else, is taking anything from GW. But, these are just my thoughts.
Hope someone finds this helpful and looking forward to making my gaming faster and easier.
Thanks for the read,
