Now there are several available options ranging from blanks with nichrome wire chips to ready made e-match assemblies. All of which are expensive in Australia or down right un-available. So after doing a bit of research I found that carbon film resistors would be a good option.
For my electronic ignition devices I use 1/4 watt 8.2ohm carbon film resistors that I buy from jaycar electronics. You can easily use from 6-12ohm resistors. This is just what was available to me that stays under 2 amps. The resistor is then soldered to a twin core wire that us connected to the firing system. Polarity is not important. I fire using a 2200mah 11.1v lipo battery from my days flying model planes. (7.4v 2200 lip also work, however allow 2 sec for ignition) Ignition occurs within 1 second and is very reliable. (To this day 100%) The resistors will glow red for at least 3 seconds and then burst into flames. The glowing red is plenty to light BP, green mix, flash etc. I use bp bound with NC lacquer as the pyrogen.
The other interesting thing is that I have been able to re-use the resistors after their first fire. Firing 2-3 times per resistor reliably. Re-dipping in pyrogen between shoots. Not that you need to at the cost. If anyone is interested I'd be happy to post a video with a walkthrough. Just let me know.
Anyway just thought I'd post it and let everyone know. All the best,
