Am on the look out for 2nd hand poker chips. The dymo tape thing sounds good... providing you don't read braille!
Ideally I'd like to paint or print numbers/designs onto genuine casino chips. Something about the feel and sound of real casino chips that is very appealing.

Cool, 50 casino-quality chips, blank with metal cores in red and blue for 3 quid. But postage will double that. I'm tempted...

I too don't think COC would work for Sharp Practice although its a nice thought. The COC method is really innovative, but doesn't fit the flow of SP.
I also found drawing chips provides more randomness from the cards so I printed my own cards with a picture of the leader, his number(rank), Initiative level and unit associated with, put them in plastic sleeves and then draw them out of a dice bag. Being able to clearly identify the leader is much easier than drawing numbers.

Well, I succumbed to the temptation. They're pretty huge, at 40mm, and have a pleasant heft to them. I'm just a bit worried they'll be TOO big to randomize easily. On the other hand they'll make amazing round bases, much better than MDF or ePVC. The cores are ferrous, so can even be used with magnets.
