I scaled them for my 28 mm Miniatures. They can be used with nearly everything I collected and painted the past years, Warhammer Fantasy, Mortheim, WW II and Dark Future. The miniature  for scale comparison is a Late War German from Artizan (28 mm).

The used materials:

cotton woll for filters (floss) - for the smoke
heavy washers in different sizes - as base for the pieces
hot glue - fast and easy method to glue the floss to the washers
black spray primer (Chaos blackfrom GW) - for coloring the smoke
Acrylic modelling paste (Plastik A from Lascaux) - to do the fire
acrylic paints in red yellow and white - to paint the fire
Tip: Don't spry the floss to dark. When the paint is dry spread the cotton at the top and on the sides out to get a more transparent look. After spraying is the inner material of the floss paler than the outer and this adds in my eyes much to the realism.
