  1. About Miniature lights for all shapes Grimlight are tiny magnet-controlled light circuits for miniature gaming, dungeon mastering, model trains, LARP:s and whatever else you can think of. Grimlight has the following features: Magnetic control – switch on and off without touching the miniature Easy to hide – 0.2 mm wiring laid either inside or on the miniature Switchable effects – fixed, pulsating or flickering chosen by magnet Convenient – easy to use and install Small circuit – 21*2.4 mm fits in regular 28 mm miniature bases Small led's – 0.6 mm fits in a drill hole Battery operated – using a CR1216 clock battery Long stand-by time – over a year Flexible – 2 led's per circuit Any colour – paint or cover the light thinly in any colour SHIPPING INCLUDED, WORLDWIDE! How about that? Stretch goals SEK 140,000: We add additional effect settings to each Grimlight SEK 150,000: Produce a guide for how to modify the software to change lighting effects. Publish all code under an open license. SEK 200,000: We add some fiber optic cables with every physical Grimlight reward, perfect for added variation. To be continued.... Rewards To keep it simple there are only a few different reward tiers. For different amounts of Grimlights, just pledge in multiples of the chosen non-"early bird" tier. The regular one that we believe will be what most want is the 250 SEK tier simply called "five grimlights". For ease of handling and due to shipping cost it is only possible to get Grimlight in multiples of five. If you would like to get 15 for example, just pledge 750 SEK. The reward level "5 Grimlights with larger battery holder" are Grimlights that are modified to operate from three AAA batteries instead of from one CR1216. If you want to add lighting to something big and think it would be good with extended time (about 50 times the capacity) before needing to change batteries this is for you. If you have some special needs and ideas for the lighting you need there is also a tier where we can program custom effects for you (within the constraints of what is possible with the micro-controller we are using). What it looks like What our current Grimlight prototypes look like before installation Example of what can be done with a Grimlight and optic fiber Our first prototype from Conan by Monolith Prototypes leading up to final version, left is oldest.
  2. I'm not sold on the gameplay, but the tech and potential is interesting.
  3. I took out the BBQ and some stuff I bought. Used styrofoam for the base and a Styrofoam Ball ( half of it). Applied some snow an grass flock, glued some trees and figurines in place and done. The houses will light up at night and I added a string of Led lights. Put it in the garden in front of our window/door. So in the evening we can see it from our room. Just a silly idea, maybe you guys like it, because you know...most of you are silly too...

    3d printed robot

    I work for a large movie company and wanted to reproduce one of their animated characters. Here's the result. This little guy is printed in PLA: The arms and legs are posable. I printed small links with a hole in the center and ran floral arrangement wire through them. I cut the wire from the legs inside the body and connected an LED for the eye. The wire is plastic coated so you have to sand paper off the plastic coating to make them conductive. You can see the wire connections inside the cup. At the local craft store they sold strings of miniature lights so I picked up several on sale. You get a battery holder with circuitry to regulate the current to the LED and as a bonus it has a timer to turn the LED on for six hours out of every twenty four. For convenience I drilled a hole for the wire and glued the battery holder to the bottom of the cup. The switch is accessible without taking the thing apart. It was a commissioned piece for our CTO. As he said "It's all about the toys!" Thanks for looking :)
  5. http://makezine.com/2017/05/02/outfitting-a-dd-beholder-with-led-eyes/ I ran across this "Make:" article in which Bob Richens explains how to mount LEDs in Reaper's Bones Eye Beast, SKU 77043, including teeny-tiny ones in the ends of the tentacles. It looks pretty cool!

    The Grim Squeaker gets it...

    Okay... I have a couple of this adorable mini and figured I'd try to do it the way the artist envisioned it, instead of how it had to be cast... As it's only a minor conversion, and I'm not going to go into tedious detail, I didn't bother to make a thread in the conversion section. So, first off, chop it into pieces! Then chop it into more pieces, and drill holes through them! (Look closely and you can see a beading wire run through the parts) The LED I'm going to use, shown together with a part I'm not going to use, for size comparison. It's a bit bigger than the ones I've messed with before, but that is mostly because it's an RGB LED. (Red, Green, Blue.) Which also explains the 4 thin wires. Here the LED is in place in the scythe handle and placed in a mould of generic 'Blue Stuff'. (The mould was made before I started cutting. I just didn't take pictures of that. Check GreenStuff World's YT videos for how-to) Yes, the mould is two part... Expect to spend an evening if you intend to do the same. Also, for [insert deity]'s sake, pick a single-colour LED as fitting an RGB LED is a pain in the... (I used te RGB LED because I wanted Blue light, and I didn't have any Blue LEDs in my toybox) Finally! Time to start painting... Some Vallejo Gray primer on hands and face, Vallejo 70.614 'IDF Israeli Sand' primer on the handle. The blade(made of clear resin, 'jewelry resin') isn't primed yet... Now for the Black primer... Note that I've been careful to use only a very thin layer on the edge part of the blade. Priming done, it's time to begin slapping on paint... And the first was 09437 Dragon Black, That went on undiluted using a Rosemary&Co #0 filbert. Then I mixed up a concoction I call 'Stygian night', (one drop Dragon Black, 2 drops 09423 Styx Purple) and used as the first highlight. Second highlight is Styx Purple. And finally a dab of 09686 Gothic Crimson for good measure. I will probably need to go over some areas with Dragon Black again, and I also need to think a bit about the tears on the edge of the robe. The blade will get a thin metallic coat, and the handle will get the Vallejo Old Wood weathering.
  7. High All. I went to a big box home improvement store looking for a high lumen daylight bulb for my ceiling light. Well, I had to settle for a 500 Lumen daylight LED bulbs. BUT I came across a 300W replacement LED daylight bulb. The bulb is natural daylight in the 5K range but has 4,000 Lumens, yes 4K. It's rated to last 35K hours. The bulb is from FEIT Electric. The video is just over 450Mb
  8. Need somewhere to keep my dwarf army. Thought to build LED underground small garrison fort/outpost. Will have 4 floors Magnetized bottom floor for large models And will try to stuff as much detail as I can. Began with a wooden simple frame, and 2" PinkFoam. Was debating to build up all details and then paint it at once, or paint it in pieces and install them into the box as I go. Do to the nature of the LED lighting, and much uncertainties with LED lighting, I decided to craft it piece by piece instead of all at once. Also, I do not have a good way to cover very large, hard to get to, very detailed area with coats of paint very efficiently, thus will take slower path. Have some plans how to dress up the outside but want to leave that part for last.
  9. Quick painted bones fire elemental, mounted on a custom LED base. Been getting more and more into finding ways to add light to miniatures and the clear Bones minis are simple but the results are great. In a darker area the entire mini lights up well! IMG_0177.MOV

    LED Lights Recommendations?

    Looking at the clear Bones II minis, does anyone have some simple LED recommendations to light them up from a base?
  11. almost funded.. 13 days left https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/poweredplaygaming/poweredbases-plugandplay-led-kits-for-minis-and-sc/posts Our kits make it super simple to add the effects you want. Just drill your holes, run your wires, and plug it in. No more soldering! No more electrical engineering. Just simple lighting options to make your pieces stand out without the headache. Got something that you’ve always wanted to light, but it can only fit a watch battery? We’re building upon our past successful LED launches, and filling the gap for small vehicle and model lighting kits. What Are You Offering? PoweredBase Kit Unwrapped PoweredBases are the first plug and play option for lighting small models that sit on bases of 40mm or larger. It works with your existing bases, so there’s no need to swap out all of your beautifully modeled pieces The basic kit comes with: Round PC Board with attached watch battery connector (battery not included) 3 single-bulb LED strings with pins attached Several LED Connectors Matching diameter concealer ring 3M Mounting Square Quick Start Guide Simply put, all you have to do is drill the holes in your model and base, route the wires and plug them in. We kept the connectors off of the wires, to ensure that you only needed to drill the smallest hole possible. Then you just stick the mounting to PC Board and base; and slip the concealer ring over to hide everything. The first size we're creating is 40mm round bases. You’ll be able to customize your color options to match your army’s color scheme. Currently, we’re developing Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue and Green LED strings but have the stretch goal to expand those color options. Hey all! We just got confirmation from Misterjustin at Secret Weapon miniatures for cost of the translucent resin bases. True to his word of finding an economical price point, we'll be offering them at $10 for a set of 5 bases - either round lip or flat edge. The only catch, is we have to hit our goal to make them available! You can up your pledge now, or wait to add on, but we have to hit our goal to make sure that we get everything out! Secret Weapon Bases lit with PoweredBases Want to get yours? Share and share alike!

    Sarmoth, Voidwalker LED imbedding

    http://www.wowminisdb.com/Sarmoth.htm Working on some ultracheap prepainted minis for practice with LED lighting before I try working with my Translucent Bonestm. 5mm blue LED taped to two AG3 392 batteries, all contained in the mini. The internal pillar of light happened because over drilling to near the top of the mini. I like the light coming from the core, rather than the upper body, even if it makes the mini look like a possessed nuclear fuel rod. Also did a Crashing Wave Spirit.

    Burning Sphere Tealight Hack

    First of all, thanks for all the kind words and encouragement I received for my Fire Elemental meets Novelty Lamp LED Hack. Thanks also to Peter Cruikshanks (aka Uber-Mensch) for the inspirational videos of the Burning Sphere he posted on YouTube. Here's my attempt... There's a video of the build in my blog post: Reaper Bones: Burning Sphere LED Tealight Hack. Enjoy

    Fire Elemental meet Novelty Lamp

    Hi everyone, It's my first post to the forums so I thought I might show off the Fire Elemental I've hacked using a novelty fibre-optic lamp I picked up in a discount store. There's a more detailed "How To" on my blog, and a video showing the illumination effect. Enjoy Roleplay-Geek

    translucent fire elemental

    As I mentioned elsewhere, I have been working on mounting my large fire elemental on a base incorporating an LED 'tealight candle' Up until today that has mostly been a matter of gathering the bits andmaking a plan. Today though the plan has begun to come together. Of course as I am writing this, I realise I have yet to take a picture of the base by itself. Oh well,next time. Here it is though, showing the elemental sitting on the base (mounting points haven't been added yet) giving an idea on how it's going to look.
