Gaming Aid: Damaged vehicle markers

I ran across this idea on the blog Ded Ard, and it was something that looked like such a good idea I wanted to give it a shot. Here's the basic idea of it: take one of those battery powered flickering "candles", cut off the plastic 'flame' to expose the LED light, and then glue some poly fill stuffing to the base around the LED. Light spray paint the stuffing with a yellow paint, then spray paint the upper sections of it with black paint to give it a smoke coming out of fire effect. Let the paint dry, turn on the base and viola! Burning wreckage markers that glow!
As an aside I'm considering a variant of this idea for making "Soul Blaze" markers. We'll see how it goes.

  1. I made a dozen a while ago. Takes no time at all and works really well! Get some brown or red to spray on first then do the black and it looks totally different. I bet you could get other colors of these with Halloween just around the corner for those soul blaze markers....
