Apologies for bumping an old thread, but if anyone has a handful of torch stands they don't want, I am actively seeking them. PM me, y'all!

Dunno, but i had one from the catacombs set that went for several days straight, as I forgot to turn it off when we were done playing - :shock:


so say 48-72 hours...
+1... about that long.

Ive done that before when making LED pieces.

Thanks, Harneloot. After my panic subsided ("WHAT? There is resin I have not bought?") I checked. I've hopefully got some ordered.....

Obtw. How long will the led run from a single battery for the various KSIII lighted bits?

For me, the idea would be ~25mm round base that glows around the edges. I assume the oreo filling would glow and the top and bottom would not.

I'm not anyones puppet!
I'll have one later tonight.
Just joking :P, who can't imagine an oreo cookie? Ummm O.R.E.O. :shock: 'O' :o

I will say that one side (of the cookie) should be stone and the other as wood plank. Reversable with a flip. It should also mimic the floor, so when it's used as a spell effect (not tied to a miniature) you can position it anywhere. I was thinking the light would be between the sandwich and the (clear/opaque) ring(s) around the whole center would be removable. Also make it the switch to turn it on with a partial turn.
Another thought is what about a strobe, solid or phase the light bright to low and back...for effects.
Josh, I think you have a KS and if you can adjust the light to extend certain distances you'll be a rich man.

maybe removable hollow transluscent plastic rings or arcs sandwiched in/under the base? then you only need a single clear led light., and customize the effect by using the appropriate color(s).

picture an oreo cookie, with led, etc., as the filling, and plastic arcs stuck in around edge, between the wafer parts. :)
Yeah, I like that idea a lot. So, anyone want to pipe up with what colours should reperesent what?... or just what colours could be used?... assume between 4-6 colours.
Ahem...I'm having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around this, as far as to what it is to look like. Just a miniature sitting on a cookie sandwich? That's it? Perhaps I need a bit of a...well, I don't know...let's call it a...SKETCH! Hmmm, who could draw one of those darn things? ;)

OK, William, I am an idiot. I never GOT a C2 set. I THOUGHT I did. I can remember ordering it. But no....

AAARG. Now I have to buy one.
