I've just completed the last of my greater elementals for my Kings of War army. This one is the Greater Fire Elemental. It's the Reaper Bones model and I had the idea that it could be lit from inside.
A while ago I got hold of some flickering LED tea-lights from Poundland and set about working out how to get one inside. I soon found this article showing one way that it could be done and decided I could do even better.
I sourced some small battery holders for CR1216 batteries and a very small switch and hollowed out the model to take two of the Poundland LEDs. To get the upper one in place I actually cut the body of the model in two and then glued it back together.
After a quick dry-brush and my usual basing technique it's ready for play.
Of course the still image above can't really give the model to it's best. So here's a video.
And here's the underside. I've potted it with milliput to protect the wiring during game play.
