The 3,453rd quick and easy stone base idea!
At the railroad hobby stores they have plastic sheets with textures already imprinted on them. These textures are very deep cut and are perfectly easy to use as press molds. Here are the simple steps;
1. Get a sheet of stone, brick, cobblestone or whatever you like. I got mine from Caboose Hobbies. Mine is called "Crazy Paving" and it is a G-Scale material.
3. The sheets are HUGE, about 1ft x 1ft, so you'll have plenty of different areas to choose from. Spray the area you want to have with some WD-40 (Which is, incidentally, the worlds best mold release for virtually anything.)
5. Remove the base, let dry overnight and paint to your heart content. These really are just that easy, and one sheet of the "crazy Paving" will last several armies. They are big enough to not make the same base twice, ever.
