Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website
Easy to navigate
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.
Using the kit
The kit was easy. Just screwed together and the switch was perfect.
A knight has a handy compartment in whoch you can store LED's like this. If you do not glue the carapace down you can remove it easily for access.
I assembled the body and the head seperate and drilled a hole out from the body behind where the head would rest. This is where the wire would come through.
Next I drilled two holes back from the front of the head straight through where the eyes would go. Then hollowed out further using a file.
Then all I had to do was insert the led and pull into the head until
Tight, thread the wire through the body and attach to the conector.
The knights mask was the. Added to
Cover the face and direct the light.
I am chuffed with the effect it adds to the model and will be buying more in the future. My only worry is how to hollow
Out the pre
Made forgeworld knight heads which already have the masks attached.
Stay tuned for more :)
