Making Cornfields

Making cornfields is an easy guide to follow on how to make cornfields for 10mm wargaming terrain has been a long time in the planning. However when I finally started the project making cornfields proved very easy indeed. Anyway here's my guide for making your own fields for 10mm wargaming. 

1. The first step is to cut your bases to the desired size either using MDF or hardboard in my case I used hardboard and cut it to 6 inch by 6 inch once you have cut your bases to the desired size you then want to proceed to rasp the edges to give it a smoother appearance.
