I was at the 0.99 Cent Store the other day when I happened upon these straws --
I used scissors to cut through the straws. I saved those for Warhammer 40k terrain (pipes!!).
I took the stacked skulls and I epoxied them to my "cheapo base of choice!" The nickel! It's heavy AND its cheap. :)
Here's a look. I haven't painted them or anything -- I will and then I'll do a followup post.
