just came across Tamashii Effect Burning Flame... this kit looks like it might be very useful for game and model in 40k

in fact, I've been wondering why GW hasn't done something like this with the blast template disks... and charge 3 times as much.

they would rather you buy their green stuff for the stupid price it is and replicate it themselves

The special skull covered 40K templates were impractical enough already without making them more 3D and on fire.

Man that is awesome. But I don't see it as being even remotely practical for blast markers which are briefly hovered over models and that's about it.
Where this kind of thing could be applied is in representing different lasting effects like malediction/blessing psychic powers, pinning and even falling back.

Alternatively it could be an extension of the limited "pyrotechnics" we've seen on models recently (see the Scions Servo skull for the most recent example). I've seen several companies selling muzzle flash and the such like and, while I'd always prefer to have them as an optional extra, I'd definitely consider using stuff like this for effect markers or to represent "special powers" on a model (or for coolness).

Who wouldn't like to see a Marine Chapter Master striding purposefully through a wall of fire?!

Given i've already managed to break a set of the current fancypants 40k ones, the last thing i'd want is 3d spikey bits to ruin too.

something like this would be cool to represent void shields and smoke launchers as well

Cinematic effects aren't too tricky to make, I've been playing around with them myself recently. :) Sculpt the shape, make a rubber mold and cast up in resin, job's a good 'un. ;) If you're feeling a bit more ambitious you can use clear resin and pop an LED in there, like so...

I feel that the 40K templates with the blue lightning in the middle are cinematic enough for me- any template that isn't flat is harder to transport, especially when you already lugging around a case full of models and a bag full of codices and gaming aids. The brass domed templates for vortex grenades/fantasy vortex spells get away with being 3D by having no protrusions to snap off in a bag.

Cheers. :) I'm also working on a Orky zzap gun effect. If anyone wants to see then click on the top link in my sig, it's on page 11 of that thread.
