Thread: Flame and Smoke special damage markers

  1. #1

    Default Flame and Smoke special damage markers

    The Flame and Smoke special damage markers are sold as a set. They simply slide over the top of one of the official flight pegs.

    Flame Marker


    The flame marker is laser cut from 3/16 (5mm) orange plastic. It has some detail etching on it to allow you to color it in with a crayon. I suggest using red to give the flame marker a little more visual appeal.



    The smoke marker is laser cut from 1/8 (3mm) tinted plastic. It also has the detail etching on it. The tinted gray color give it a nice smoke look to it.

    For those that might be interested, here are some shot of the development process for these.

    Initial sketches



    Paper prototypes




    I personally took the time to paint my flame and smoke markers to make them look even better...



    And a few shots of the markers in games.

    Got a couple sets and the red/blue rulers - can't wait to use them in the 18 Sep WoW game I am hosting. One question Col, sir, any chance you are going to make a fire one for balloons???

    Just got a few sets and the rulers tuesday, too. Very high quality - nicer than I expected. Thanks, Colonel!

    Glad you guys liked them.

    I've not thought about a fire maker for balloons... I'll kick that idea around for a while and see what I come up with.

    They look nifty, the only problem is that you have to lift the plane off the base. This has caused the plane to be inadvertanly moved. One of our players made simiilar looking ones out of foam rubber, and the end is open so they can be attached and detached without having to move the plane.

    @Raff - boy, didn't have that problem when we used them. What we did was hold the base down and lift just one of the sections off, then slid down the marker.

    P.S. Colonel, Sir, still hoping for a balloon flame! :-)

    Yeah, we just put a finger on the base as well and all is good.

    A balloon flame, or a balloon explosion??

    Flame is more important because it is in play longer, but an explosion would be great as well for effect on the mission photos. Hint, hint, pretty please. Col. Sir. Grovel.

    Humm, would have to think what a flame marker for a balloon would look like.

    I was thinking along the lines of the "Kiddies", and not adults, unless they've a pint in or two.

    Ahh, I just put them on for my kids when we play. Nothing is perfect I guess.

    These markers were a big hit at the convention this weekend!

    I'll post more about the convention in a separate thread later on.

    Fingers crossed, but I do like the way your shop makes it clear if an item is out of stock. One of my pet hates is to order an item on line and then find it's out, oftern with no accurate information on when it will be back in.

    Default Question

    Where can you get the markers and rules? What do they cost?

  27. #27

    Default

    http://www.aerodromeaccessories.com/

    And all your questions will be answered. Conversely, you could just click on the Aerodrome Accessories link at the top of page (in the header). Lots of neat stuff for sale -- and great quality!

    Cheers!

    ANy word when these will be in stock again or does anyone have any they would like to part with?

    S-4 (http://www.aerodromeaccessories.com/) is out of quite a few things, so I feel there will be a drop shipment very soon. I too am looking for some markers for the next convention here in Tucson, and as prizes for an upcoming tournament.

    No doubt the 20-year storm isn't helping matters...

    I am still hoping to have everything restocked some time this month... though it is looking like it might be into March to get everything back in stock.

    Is LITKO making anything for WoW yet ?

    Could you use a 5# earth magnet and a ball bearing for plane mounts? I have like 2000 of the earth magnets, (use them on FoW tank turrets) and I could get ball bearings at one of the local hardware stores, ....

    any thoughts ?

    LITKO has several WOW compatable products, but they are not compatable with the Aerodrome Accessories. I have some of both, each has it's own +'s & -'s. It depends on what you feel is more important.

    Hey there! Is there an ETA on when we could expect prop rulers & flame / smoke markers to come back in stock? I would REALLY like to pick up some for a big game I have planned. Thanks!

    Hi Keegan. The Col expects to have the new stock in when he gets back from his vacation.

    Is there any hope of these original, one-piece flame & smoke markers coming back available?

    I have used the ACE three-piece, "3D" markers and simply don't care for them. Would love to order some additional original style ones if possible.

    Otherwise I'll have to order the Litko product instead.

    Thanks for considering!!
