I'd like some input here as I'm making some counters to represent loot and whatnot.

Do you think warpstone tokens are like small, round, flat green discs? As in, the traditional image that comes to mind when you think of a token, only warpstone?

Or do you think Skaven wouldn't bother with cutting it into coin shapes and picture them just as small chunks of the stuff?
Yes-yes, o most clever of generals.

I think Warptokens are more like small green discs with only an actual small percentage of Warpstone in each one. Warpstone isn't that very commonplace, hence why Slaves are worth so little in comparison. There are then I would imagine some more monetary sided clans employed by the Council to mint Warptokens using very little of the raw stuff and probably finding a way to get richer from this. I'm going with the disc side here. :)

Of course If you meant the Warpstone Tokens that our Seers and like consume to power up their magic then small raw chucks of the stuff would be best. Though even with that much of the Warpstone available to them is also refined into small safe (?!) chunks.

Or instead of disks have little green triangles. That would fit more with the Skaven.

They love their triangles!

Triangular. I dunno why but I've always imagined them as triangular.

I gotta go with the little green triangle theory as well.

My first thought that just leaped into my head when I read the thread title was "My balls!"


Then I thought about it a bit more.



I'm going with my first thought.

I was thinking green triangle with a hole in the middle.

The thought of them not being made entirely out of warpstone is interesting as well.

in my mind i see warpstone as "coin" shaped, but with a impresion of the horned rat or even one of the famous rats of old on the top, and on the bottom either plain or with a claw mark in it to prove it is authentic.i uppose there could be small openings in it to allow them to be tied together however i dont see the majority of skaven to be that sensible with there money (or want to damadge there valuable tokens :lol: ).

I see them as triangular, with the mark of the horned rat stamped on either side.
