This is amazing. I'm having visions Conan the Barbarian seeing this, and of this being done for a statue like in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom."

 

Would you say the torch work you did is a decent beginner project for someone who would want to try using LEDs? I've seen tutorials on youtube for making torches out of tea lights and LEDs, but to me they don't hide the battery very well; makes them look bulky. I like how everything is well-planned and hidden in your piece.

I don't consider myself a pro, but I have messed with LEDs a couple of times now. I found these LED light strings online - they're like 7' long with the battery pack attached and several LED lights running along the string. I found that pretty easy to work into it, though you've gotta be careful using a power drill on Bonesium. The trickiest parts of this for me was finding an appropriate brazier piece, and doing the cutting. It helps that the base is hollow underneath, so there's plenty of room to mount the battery pack.

 

Oh, and after gluing the snake to the base, I was concerned about overall it staying on, so I drilled some holes through the base into the snake and then screwed in some actual screws to help hold it.

This might sound crazy, but are you telling me that there are 7 feet of LEDs in that thing? (Obviously not all in the braziers, but coiled/hidden in the base?) Or were you able to cut and splice/solder the length of lights you needed?

I might be remembering the length wrong, but yep, it's coiled around the three screws coming from the bottom, and then held in place and and covered up with duct tape to keep it from glowing out from the bottom.

 

Edit: It's really thin wire, with very small LED bulbs. I've fit all the wires from one into a 3" diameter base before, wound around in circles and stuffed in there...

      Here are the gravestones from Bones 3 Graveyard expansion (1 seem to have lost one before it made it to the paint table....) and a random pillar... 
       
      Gee, what kind of adventure could I be planning....

      These are some excellent monster hunters! 44054, Damaris, is a lovely crossbow-packing lady with a saber, a fancy hat, and a fondness for skull-shaped ornaments. I went with a blue-and-silver scheme; black and grey might have worked better, but I wanted to color-code my Monster Hunters.

      Here she is fighting a Vorvorlaka, 77631. The terror that flies by night, the winged monstrosity.
      Always put silver in your crossbow bolts, just to be sure, but a wooden stick through the heart will kill most things, vampire or no.

       
      44013, Jakob Knochengard, is magnificently grim and dour. Laden down with holy symbols and armor, potions and books. A perfect missing link between Solomon Kane and Abraham van Helsing. 
      Life tip: if you see someone holding a severed head, it does NOT mean you should trust them. But it DOES mean you should take them seriously.

      Jakob loves two things: spending time with his family, and killing the undead. And he's all out of family, thanks to the aforementioned undead.

      Painted up most of the gravestones from the Bones 3 Graveyard expansion. A few others are primed and waiting. Here is what I finished so far. I thought about putting my players' characters' names on a few but thought that was mean!
