Wrecked Vehicle Markers

Well, I decided to take a break from painting up infantry.  I needed to keep my creative juices flowing, however.  After several games with this army, it is inevitable that with the quantity of tanks, there will be some wrecks.  I decided to make some smoke/flame markers instead of just flipping the tank and possibly scratching my paint.  The results of that endeavor can be seen below.

I think they turned out pretty good.  I will also utilize some of the poly-fill to use as smoke from smoke launchers.

Quick tutorial-  Get an old pillow and rip out the stuffing.  Spray-paint black (Heavy at top to a light misting at bottom).  Load a tank brush up with red and stipple along the underside.  Then do the same with orange. Finally do the same with yellow.

I hope you all enjoy.
