Yarn. I use green yarn to set the borders of woods. You can lay it down to match the most complicated and intricate forest shape from any scenario.

It comes in a billion colors. It is easy to manipulate and its cheap.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP muses:

One item I find very useful is Electrician's tape. The stretchy vinyl type.

Lately, almost all of my 28mm figures go on steel washers. They are cheap, for one thing. For another the punched-out center gives a nice bond and "key" to hold the figure.

I glue the foot figures to the washer with five-minute epoxy glue.

But what about the glue oozing out the bottom, and sticking to whatever work surface you have? You then have a lonpy bottom to the base as well.

Easy solution. Take your washers, and stick them to the tape, rough side up, stretching it slightly. Smoosh the bottom of the figure in the glue, and plop it on the washer. When the glue sets, simply peel the tape off the washer. Flat bottom!

What odd things do you find necessary and or useful? Everybody uses toothpicks, but some may find electrician's tape odd.
