I decided version one was a bit dark and so made another 8 markers this morning.
This time I spray painted them a dull red then black on top- and did the same for all the original ones too.
Artillery bombardment Markers- version 1
Not totally happy with these, the next version will have the bursts closer together. But this is an idea I got from a Wargames illustrated about WWI and is something I've been meaning to do for a while. One thing that is hard to represent in the photos of FoW games is where artillery strikes happen. WWPD uses a 2 dimensional template which looks pretty good but I thought that the wrecked tank smoke markers system could be adapted to use. V2 will no doubt be better but these are not bad for a first attempt. The idea is to put these markers were artillery bombardments occur to make it easier to tell in photos of games.
