Character Bases

I've been wanting to make one of those diorama bases to fit wargaming miniatures on for display for some time, and just made one. Read on for how easy it was:

The final product:

This was dead easy to do. I bought the base finished for 99 cents at a local crafts store. It colud have used some sanding, but I didn't even mess with that. I stained it with Royal Walnut MinWax Polyshades, which I had on-hand for Miracle Dipping figures. After it dried, I placed washers the size of the figure bases where I wanted them, and flocked around it just like I do my figure bases. I added some aquarium foliage to taste. Viola!! Very easy for a nice effect.
