Wargame counters corner rounder punch cutter and tweezers
One of the most enjoyable feelings of playing a physical wargame instead of a computer-based strategy game is the good-looking of counters and maps. However, one of the problems you may often find in your games is that the counters, after being punched, may show some kind of irregular shapes in the four corners. In order to make them identical it is necessary to use some tools. In particular, some wargamers like to have the corners specifically rounded using some punch cutters. Although there are several types of punch cutters in the market, we have our favorite one, which is shown below:

Bent Tip Lighted Tweezers
In addition, you also need to move the counters in the map as long as the game progresses. The fingers may be too thick to do this task, in particular when you have high dense area of counters with several stacks. In order to assist with this problem, some wargamers use some tweezers. As with the corner punch cutter, there are several types of tweezers. The one we usually use has a specific bent tip and have a light emitting diode which makes them useful to illuminate specific parts of the map or visualize easily the digits and letters written on the counters.
