Quick and Easy 10mm/15mm Cemetery

I needed to make a quick cemetery for the Cemetery Hill portion of my upcoming First Day of Gettysburg game at Origins. I got the idea to use the rounded ends of some craft picks I had as the tombstones, and glued them to some leftover Warmaster sized metal bases from which I had removed the troops.  The whole project took about 20 minutes from start to finish and produced a nice set of tiny tombstones.
The ends of the craft sticks were easy to snip off with a pair of clippers.

I glued them on the bases with white tacky glue

A close up of the tombstones.  They would work equally well for 15mm I think.


  1. Now that is nice! Stupidly simple to do but very effective looking. My kinda terrain build! Kudos.

  2. Now that was clever. It has me thinking about a way to do the stanchions for my railing on the 28mm scout aeronef I am working on right now.
