They are a great size to see on the tabletop and easy to pick up. I never realized how hard it was to pick up my previous, flat pin markers, until I tried these. The Battlemarkers have a kind of lip to them that makes them so easy to handle.
Battlemarkers has a huge variety of nationalities on the markers, and I know I'll be buying more sets for my armies.
I truly recommend these markers. Check them out at http://battlemarkers.com
Note: some people always ask if I'm reviewing a product I was given for free in exchange for a favorable review. This is not the case. I purchased these at retail price, and this is an honest review and not a "review for product" exchange.
