    Second, really waay too many polygons for such a simple-looking model, everything on it should be reduced by 2/3, Will's particles are cool, but maybe they too could be reduced. and lastly that's really flimsy stick part, compared to the burning part, make them both lill more even and also wrap the stick part a bit better

    nice, useful. i would remove the annoying ticking sound on the standing one if i were you

    Thanks to Misha sorted all things asked by moderator.
    Still has few minor issues will try and fix.

    Edit:
    Polygons are now 1/16 of original
    Note: Works as attachment.

    Edit:
    Reduced as much faces as I can.
    I made it into a doodad version and attachment version.

    Thanks.

    Felt the same. Will update soon!

    Edit:
    Does not make repair sound in Stand Work anims anymore.

    That is much better, dude, but i think you could reduce it even more, for an example, the match-head doesn't need to have that many sides to it, and it also could loose one of the segments of its length and still have a good shape. also the current wrap of the match-head is stretched a lot on one segment, this could be fixed

    and lastly, you still didn't tell me if you wanted this to be just a detail to put in the map, or if you want it to be held by a unit

    Pretty simple, but might be useful. Nice first model.
