I said "something like" and it did have a skull, marble, urn, and two flame sizes per light fixture. If you missed them, go find your boxes, you have some little bags to go through. ;)

EDIT : This a the mix from two #2 sets and two 6" LED walls -

I play LOTR a lot and any color would do, mostly just a reminder that a model causes terror. I would guess that white, yellow, green, red, orange, violet, blue, and purple would be good targets.

maybe removable hollow transluscent plastic rings or arcs sandwiched in/under the base? then you only need a single clear led light., and customize the effect by using the appropriate color(s).

picture an oreo cookie, with led, etc., as the filling, and plastic arcs stuck in around edge, between the wafer parts. :)
Yeah, I like that idea a lot. So, anyone want to pipe up with what colours should reperesent what?... or just what colours could be used?... assume between 4-6 colours.
If you aren't gaming then you aren't living.

Josh,

Thanks. I used to work in the LED business (Cree) and the actually LED chip was tiny, but all rest of it (lens, battery, wires, package, circuit must be 300 times bigger).

I haven't received my package for KS3 yet, but have been looking forward to using a stand with the game Shadows of Brimstone, which has a 'lantern bearer' (a thankless job that gets blamed for a lot of problems). Having the LB actually have a lit base seems like it'd be just amazing, and I've used DF dungeon and cavern tiles in the past to augment the board game pieces when I'm feeling particularly adventurous.
