Cheap Explosion Markers
Now before we start I fully accept my skills are limited and you all will find obvious faults with my techniques and be able to improve on them.
After the game I ran set around the Forges rail yard it was obvious to me I needed larger explosion markers, for artillery bursts, etc. I looked across the internet at the usual suspects and found nothing suitable for what I wanted, so thought I`d give it a go myself.
I went out and bought a packet of 18 x 20mm diameter washers (75 cents), a can of spray black matt (2 Euro), 2 tubes of poster paint yellow and red (1.25 Euros each). I already had a universal glue and an old flat pillow.
STEP 1 clumps of pillow stuffing and glued it to the washers
STEP 2 A quick liberal spray with the black matt (when dry this added some body to the stuffing)
STEP 3 after allowing to dry slapped on yellow poster paint
STEP 4 after allowing drying time slapped on red poster paint
I`m quite happy with the finished look across 4ft of table top (or front garden)
