Painted all of the flames orange then coated the stems with liquid electrical tape so I can paint them brown later

Amazing. Is the furniture 3D printed or custom made? What materials did you use? I'm planning to replace all my cardboard parts for something more solid.

3dprinted, as are the doors and fallen rubble, using filament. The walls I made with clay and a lego mold

I'm going to come out and actually post something just to say: this is hands down the best implementation of a custom board that I've ever seen.

Wow, thx so much :)
So much time and conception to make all the pieces work the way they do. Its also a kind of a procrastination as I keep putting off painting the minis lol. :oops:

Now with all of the torch posts painted brown to look like wood I am finally ready to do the wiring.
A quick 2 light test to make sure it works

Rest of the lights for this quadrant connected . Then used liquid tape to cover all the metal parts and some tabs of electrical tape to keep the cords in place.

Quadrant 3 lit up

Time to repeat this process 3 more times

Beautiful job, my friend. Congratulations indeed. I'm trying to make my furniture with Popsicle sticks, but maybe 3D printing is a better solution.

Or do both? I used some popsicle sticks on the cupboard and bookshelves atop of it being 3d printed
