GF9 Templates

Based on Lars4life's review, I picked up a couple of the Gale Force Nine T.A.C. templates:

I got two so I could throw one in each of my (currently used) army bags - eventually my goal is to have a complete set of templates, dice, tape measure, etc., in every army bag I have, so all I need to do is grab the bag with my books in it & the appropriate army case and hit the door, without having to worry if I forgot anything or having to move a bunch of stuff over from another bag.  To this end, I also picked up a Multi-Template Mk II:

This is pretty slick - I know I've criticized Gale Force Nine's "Hobby Scenics" line for being overpriced, but their "Gaming Aids" line includes a lot of cool, well-thought-out stuff.

I also picked up some spare dice:

The Chessex 12mm dice cubes are cheap enough that I can add one or two to my order whenever I buy some stuff online, and it isn't too painful.  At some point I bought a bagful of scatter & artillery dice, so a few of those will get thrown in each bag too...


  1. I've been meaning to get one of those TAC templates. Thanks for the reminder. Now it's off to the LGS

  2. The TAC Templates are definately nice. Have you actually used that multi-template piece yet? I am curious how it works out.

  3. Nope, haven't had a chance to use it yet - I'm assuming it's going to be a bit more finicky because of the "all-in-one" design, but I'm willing to make that sacrifice for portability...
