When I get some time I'm also going to number the blocks with a felt pen, which should make combat infinitely easier.
Awhile ago we played in our "out of the abyss" game, and we had got the DM some pathfinder minis for his birthday. (one of the PF boxes). While most of the monsters are pathfinder specific demon things, what the DM did was just use them as props/minis basically. The idea was that creature on the card had nothing to do with what we were actually fighting (picture is a stringy looking demon, we are fighting orcs). What I found though was the colour coding was crazy handy for tactics and keeping track of things.
As I stated in my post the other day on this:
Player: "I attack the orc"
ME: "which colour?"
Player: "the red one".
That combined with my home made battle mat I've been using since I started, should make combat relatively easy.
