40k - Game Tracker - Fear This! Kustoms

I'm a sucker for game aids and I have been trying to get myself something to help with in-game tracking.

Recently I was reading the Spiky Bits blog and saw the following game tracker. It was cast in resin having been 3D printed. Dimension wise it is approximately 6" x 3" and 10mm thick.Costs USD15 and tracked postage was USD8.


Arrived in NZ in approximately 5 days though NZ Post took 7 days to get it from Auckland to Wellington. Well packaged in layers of bubble wrap. The tracker is very crisply cast.


I sprayed mine with black primer and then a purple spray to match my Emperor's Children. Then I painted the dice wells (fit 12mm dice) black and filled in the lettering. To complete the finish - and ensure I don't scratch my wooden table surround - I glued felt to the bottom.

Happy with how it turned out and having used it now in my last two games it certainly helps me stay focused on the prize.

  1. That's pretty sweet. I should probably get something like that at some point!

    Is your 3D printer still in operation? This is the most useful 40K game aid that I've found recently. I suggest printing one then up-scaling it slightly as it seems a little tight for some dice. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2227468

    I really want to design one that can take two or three dice for larger units.
