That's a good one  8) 8) 8)
Also useful for exotic flames for dragons and stuff.

That REALLY looks the part already!  8) 8) 8)

Are you planning to make a couple of flame markers out of the same stuff to show who's on fire?

Flocking for flames!! A stroke of Genius!
Not genius on my part.  I first saw it used years ago on a WW1 demo game by Dave Andrews and Aly Morrison.  There are a few 'how to' around the web that others have done.  I looked at several, but mainly: http://sidneyroundwood.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/flaming-holidays.html

I find that a dousing in cheap superglue adds solidity and takes drybushing rather nicely.
It is what I do to clump foliage on my buildings.
An easier option if you still have a few 'soft' areas.
I didn't do this as the PVA seemed to give good coverage, but I can see that it would work well on flames/smoke/foliage.

That's the plan.  I also have a running miniature, part converted , that will be on fire.  I'm not sure I will have time to do them for the contest though.

This is awesome.

I used the clump foliage recently for cannon smoke and it worked a treat. I used hot glue gun which was brilliant for it. The pva attempt was a disaster with me nearly destroying the house in a rage.

Inspired idea for the flames/smoke, can't wait to see the finished product. :)

I will only say: WOW!
