Warmaster Paper Counters

On this page, you will find links to the many sets of paper counters that I created back in 2002 and 2003 for Games Workshop's Warmaster fantasy game. These were the first paper counters for the game. I made these for myself because back then we had no money for buying miniatures, which were a major luxury. All our money went to living expenses and paying off debt. I also made these counters because wanted the entire gaming community to enjoy them and give the then-new Warmaster game a try. It was my way of thanking the gaming community for their support. Plus, Rick Preistly, the author of Warmaster, loved the idea of these counters.
Warmaster Ancients & DBA
Starting in late-2014, I also began creating Warmaster Ancient counters. Since the counters have no stats on them, they also can be used with any stand-based games such as DBA. They also can be used with the original WM.

Now as Easy PDFs!
Originally, I hosted these counters at the Warmaster yahoo groups as large image files, which limited printing options. Plus, gamers had to join the yahoo email list to download the counter sets, which also was inconvenient for many gamers. That has all changed now! I have converted those images into handy PDFs, allowing gamers to print them at home or take them to professional printers, such as Kinkos or Staples, and print them on high-quality color laser printers. Remember, print the PDFs at full size so they print correctly. Don't click on "print to fit."

I'm now hosting these counter sets on my own server. When telling gamers about these counters, you may link to this page or the files, but please do not republish the sets elsewhere. Why? It sure ain't for money reasons! All kidding aside, I'm a constant tinkerer. If I change/update the sets, I want gamers to have the best versions possible. Though I made them many years ago when I was still learning photoshop, I have always been proud of these little fellows. They were a bright spot in our otherwise turbulent lives.

How to Download the PDFs
Below, you can see a thumbnail image of the sheets in each set. To download an army's counter set, click on the army's name to open or save the file. There should be enough counters in each set to make typical 1,500 to 2,000 point armies. Of course, if you need more units simply print more copies!

Enjoy!
If you enjoy using the counters, let me know in the comments. I'd appreciate hearing from you. I also have some historical armies I did, which I'll post. I might even make some sets for Warmaster Ancients.

Click on the set's image to download the set in PDF format. Each set typically has enough counters to create armies up to 2000-points. Of course, if you need more counters simply print more copies! Click on the set's title for army lists using the counter set and other info on the army, if available.

WARMASTER FANTASY
Click on the set's image to download the set in PDF format. Each set typically has enough counters to create armies up to 2000-points. Of course, if you need more counters simply print more copies! Click on the set's title for army lists using the counter set and other info on the army, if available. Fantasy sets below marked "old" need a printer that can able to handle 1/4" margins, otherwise they might print a mm too small. Sets marked as "new" or "revised" will work on any printer and print at perfect size.

  3. Just wanted to drop in and say thanks for creating these. I've used the Empire counters, and plan on printing the Dwarves and Orcs. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these get updated, especially the Tomb Kings and Vampire Counts!

    1. Glad you like them, Brian! The Tomb Kings and Vampire Counts are high on my lists to re-do. When WM came out, I was obsessed with the Tomb Kings, but my young son was into Empire and Orcs. So...
