Last year I build a burning smoke grenade in the classic way, by using an armature and self made colored upholstery foam. You can read about this here.

Now I combined them in Tinker CAD to make these:
The miniature is an Empress Miniature added for size comparison .
Here are some more pictures:
What do you think which is better ?
