Here is a quick pic of a prototype resin counter I knocked up to try out the idea of fielded Dreadskull points.
The concept is you start with a pool. When your model is downed, you place one of the skulls from your pool onto the model. You may then discard that to make them stand again, or sacrifice the model to get back the Deadskull at any time.
I will put card equivalents in the next beta rules.
