I am also working with the mine set.

I will fill the light leak before I paint.

tea lights will vary by brand

You may need to modify the hole for the switch.

Image

You can use card or Plastic sheet if you do not already have the correct drill bits. With the MDFB use the large bit first then drill the smaller whole. Cut out the space for the switch with a chisel.

Image

If you have to use a spade bit, drill all the way through the base. Use card instead of trying to drill the small whole. Something like cereal package will do.

DM Mark has a u tube video on modifying DF tiles you may want to watch. I prefer to make new bases.

I will make more WIP photos as I paint.

@Oldent, I think I have more interest in the fruit cart in the next picture in that blog. My settings tend to be far less refined where the players tend to roam.
I am doing a little Gothic so I wanted a big library.
I want the fruit stand too

They look like 1/8" to 3/16" too tall for the walls.
Bummer, guess I'll pass. Oh well. :|

Thanks for doing this post, I've been wondering about them since the KS.

Checked out the library parts. They are slightly taller than a CBS wall or Corner post, so stacking multiple floors would be an issue, but for a single floor location, not much of an issue, as you can see in the pictures above. A full bookcase and half bookcase nicely sit between two corner posts, but it is snug. Two full bookcases will cover the edge of a floor tile. The bookcases do stack fairly well so having a double height wall of wisdom is very possible, and that makes the ladders more appropriate. I suppose if someone was using the double height corner posts that would be a way to contain a double height wall of wisdom. Without any way to stick them together however, i could see that double stack taking a tumble without much trouble from any sort of table bump.

I want to include the Grand Piano. The music room will have to be separate from the library ;)

It looks like it might work better than I thought from the Photos with the CB walls. :D
I am going to use the bookshelf with some large open tiles I am going to make for Mansions of Madness.
