So what about this: we take care of producing acrylic tokens AND will deliver the generic new token design with the miniatures? Seems like this is what most of you guys want?
Not quite that. Instead, stick to the current paper tokens AND sell acrylic ones seperately. It will allow those who want acrylic tokens to buy them, and those who want the paper tokens will not have to pay extra for something they don't want.
Also, don't do generic ones. Having to write the long names on them will be difficult with an erasable marker, and it will also look shit on the table, whereas your current markers look awesome.
The thing is, I really like your tokens, they look great, they feel good, and are just a nice thing to have. Now if you release future models without them, I'll be very annoyed at having to mix old an new (paper and plastic) ones. And I do NOT want to have to buy plastic tokens for the old ones, especially as those probably won't look as good.
This may seem a minor issue, but consistency is important. People here in Hamburg basically stopped playing Godslayer completely last spring.
That was partially due to the confusion with the German and English cards. Those who already had armies didn't want to mix languages, but the local shop suddenly only had the German cards. It probably also had to do with the bad quality of a few sculpts you published around that time, but the cards issue was part of it, as well. Overall, it meant people lost trust in you as a company to continue to consistently produce the quality you started out with, and in providing them the chance to buy what they wanted. Yes, they could have gotten the English cards by buying online, but most people don't want to buy online when they play at the local gamestore.
Another thing: many people who don't like the current paper tokens already use acrylic tokens from Privateer Press or GaleForce Nine already anyway. Some of them may buy yours, when you release acrylic ones. Those who don't use those yet but stick to the paper ones probably won't buy acrylic ones and won't want generic paper tokens.
So in closing, my advice is to keep the tokens as they are, and seperately release generic acrylic ones that you can write the name of the tactic or spell on. Don't do generic paper tokens.
