The only thing I can add to the Santa Cruz article is that if you use a hot glue gun to make these, make sure you protect your fingers when affixing the cotton to the tea light, lest you burn your fingers.
|The markers make emergency disembarking a bit more urgent|
After making these, I realized that these tea lights are super awesome and have some other uses in your games. Stick some inside a building, ruins etc. during a game for a cool torch effect. You could also use the same technique for the wrecked vehicle markers, but perhaps use a different color spray paint, to create some cool spell effects markers for Warhammer.
I was also going to follow Ron's Dark Eldar web way portal tutorial to make some more gifts, but it's been raining for about week now and I can't spray paint. My local store sold out of these the day they were released. Apparently some guy bought 8 of them - 8, seriously? Jerk.
So if your need some last minute gifts for that special hobbyist on you Christmas list and you can't think of what to buy, make something! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.
