So I am not a process hobbiest. What I mean by that are the people who take a WIP picture and then put their project on the shelf for a few years. I am a completion hobbiest. I commit to something, I get it to an acceptable quality, then I move on. I might come back, or take more time if it is going to be a serious centerpiece, but I am all about results. A good rule of thumb on which type you are is to divide the number of armies/projects you own by the number of times you have played with/worked on them in the past month. If that number is less than one you might be a completion hobbiest too.
With this in mind, I made some custom bases cheaply and easily and wanted to share how.
