i saw an article on the front page of FTW a while ago about objective counters. i have finally caught up. mine are basically resin counters with parts from bedlam cubes super glued onto them. a little bit of wire mesh, so bits from some sprues, and indeed bits of sprues and here are the before and after pictures.
im kinda tempted to leave them as they are, because i like bright plastic colours, but i figure i will probly paint them.
