Here is an alternative to your tired, bored, encapsulated witch. This is meant as a plug and play, drop in replacement for your existing witch and tube and shouldn't take more than a half hour or hour to install. Everything is printed, sanded and painted by hand. The highest quality and strongest filaments are used to make a long lasting, highly detailed piece.
The mod consists of 3 pieces. A stone base, a flaming fire insert and a witch figure. The base is set to match the walls and rock work of the RR Backalley Creations castle walls. The witch is modeled after the movie, with a menacing look and an actual wooden broom in her hand. All pieces were hand designed by a talented 3D artist who has sculpted each element individually.
While the base and witch are the same for all versions, we are offering 5 different flame finishes surrounding the witch.
- Classic Movie Red Smoke & Flames (translucent red filament)
- Ruby Red (clear filament with a metallic cherry red finish with sparkling flecks)
- Emerald City (green translucent filament with a metallic emerald sparking coating)
- Yellow Brick Road (clear filament with a yellow gold sparkle coating)
- Clear (translucent PETG flames which are foggy clear (like white smoke) while unlit)
Each mod comes with an embedded set of micro controlled addressable LEDs which add a whole additional layer of depth and interactivity to the witch. All of these features/functions are controllable and disable-able so you can make the lighting work how you like it. Color selection of the flame lights can be chosen to match your flame look. The LED strips are embedded within the flames for a very realistic look and even color/glow.
- When the witch is retracted a slow, steady, dim glow slowly pulses in the flames
- When the witch starts to travel upwards the slow pulses increase to a roaring flame with flickering wisps of red, yellow and orange (default, or other colors selected to match your flames)
- When the witch is defeated the flames retreat down and go out. After a short time they start up again back to the first stage of lighting above.
A keypad is included with the controller which let you configure the "show" (slow simmering flames to raising flames to going out, or just have the flames come on when the witch is up), the flame colors (fire, emerald, golden), max brightness and the speed at which the flames flicker. You can make this mod custom to your game and your tastes.
Unique touches and finishes are available upon request to customize your mod.
As we are finalizing this mod and gauging interest I'll leave you with this images to give you an idea of what you can expect in a finished product. Printing these takes a considerable amount of time so it will take a bit to get all of the finishes tested and finalized so we can post them for your review.
Since these do take so long to print and assemble they are being done in a batch process. We can produce about 3 of these each week as we ramp up production. As soon as we have finalized the designs we will open up ordering and will produce witches as they are ordered. We will offer an option without the lighting and controller if you have your own lighting ideas or would rather it just use the two stock LEDs (which will not light up the flames, necessarily).
If you have already replaced the tube with another design element but are still looking for the upgraded witch figure we are going to offer those for sale individually. They should fit any enclosure that fit the original witch and is a quick swap.
A special pre-order price of $225 is being offered so we can do some bulk ordering of parts in advance and start to build the lighting controllers. After we have completed the design the price will increase.
Here is a very early test of the ruby red flames and about 1/4 of the overall lighting that will be in the final version. There will be many more flames, evenly spread out and more constant light versus the sporadic light. This is about 6 LED elements when the final will have closer to 20.
