Objective Markers

Luke purchased a ton of really crappy, home-cast T-34s and Shermans at an HMGS convention last year. He got thirty tanks for $5! They are HORRIBLE, but I figured we could make something of them. I made one Flames of War objective marker to give away last year (one of you suckers guys picked it up at Historicon!), so I figured I would make 4 more to see how they sell at Cold Wars. I made two T-34s and two Shermans. I didn't mark the Shermans, figuring they could be USSR, USA or UK. Two in cityscapes and two stuck in mud.
I used quite a bit of Concrete Dust from the Battlefront Pigments line. Looks like snow in the picture, but not in person -- weird.

I used the mud and dust pigments on these guys -- not too bad.

I used my Linka leftovers for the bricks and such.

30 tanks for 5 bucks?
That's a good deal, even if they become objective markers!
Heck, even if you end up chucking them at your opponent...that's a good deal!

Throwing them at you opponents would be better than letting them hit the table as your army.

They were a tad under the weather ... but DO make an awesome objective marker ...

Heck, you guys have train tracks now, get some flat bed cars and put the tanks on them as scenery :).

Not just that, paint them up as wrecks and use them to litter roads in game as terrain :)

Thanks guys! Solid ideas from you all. I sold all of these at the Flea Market.

If you ever make anymore let me know as I would pay to have you ship me a couple.

They make good objectives.
