|Some simple cards|
When I played Crom last, I was using color coded counters for the initiative deck. White for my guys, red for minions, yellow for the High priest, and black for the Twanax. This worked fine, but if I wanted to use any more types of figure I'd need cards as that's all the colors I have ;)
To make sure that I coud re-use them for different figures, I tried to use terms on the cards that would easily distinguish one figure from another, but were still kind of generic. Here's the list I came up with for my first 3 sheets of cards (9 to a card)
The She Wolf
They are black and white and sparse to try to save on printer ink. I still might make counters and write the same names on them somehow, as counters or poker chips in a bag are actually quicker to "shuffle" than cards, but I thought of this just now. I like the terms at least.
