    I’ve been meaning to make some for AFVs and with a Chain of Command campaign about to start that will feature a lot of American tanks I’ve finally got around to making some. I wanted some markers to use for things like immobilised or bogged; for damage to weapons and gun sights, and for other ‘misfortunes’ of war. I’ve used bits and pieces from other games and from the spares box to make these.


    I also wanted a way to mark an AFV that went ‘flat out’ in a previous phase, as this makes it a harder target, but as the movement occurs in a previous phase it’s often forgotten about. For that I’ve created some dust markers. These are quickly and simply made from polyester cushion filling. A bit more about them on the blog http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2020/03/afv-markers-for-chain-of-command.html

    Another recent creation has been some flames for my flamethrowers. I used the clumping foliage method to make the flames and I’ve mounted them on a separate base as I didn’t think it appropriate (or functional) to have the flamethrower operator walking around the table with his weapon permanently on full blast.

    I love the flame thrower marker. Where did you get the tracks from?

    Tired is enough.

    Great work with the flamethrower, looks positively terrifying!

    Brilliant idea; they look very impressive.

    As above, the markers look great, and that Sherman looks fantastic.

    The tracks were out of the spares box, so they must have come as part of plastic kits that I’ve acquired over time. I have a feeling several came from Plastic Soldier Company kits (keep in mind these are all 1/72, which is well catered for when it comes to kits in this scale).
