    question: how te make 25mm round bases? (WH40k bases)

    Hey there potential modelling gods of LO,
    I'm a modelling noob myself and after enthusiastically buying the FB Ork Battle regiment set (30 euro for 19 Orks, and ALOT of bits).
    I decided to make them Ork kommandos and the left over will be converted in Nobz.
    but the FB bases are (ugly) and square, and I need round bases. Is there a way to make them yourself (cheap) and gaming-legal. I wont be entering any tournament but I don't want to cheat with smaller and/or bigger bases etc.
    atm I have:
    Cardboard (both thick and thin)
    2 part epoxy putty (greenstuff I guess)
    those big square bases.

    I'd prefer to stick with this stuff as I already it and it's cheap or free. But i can buy other stuff if really really realllyyyy needed.

    I was thinking about sanding/cutting the big squares into those 40mm round bases,but that is a a lot of work I guess and I'm a tad lazy.
    soo anyone willing to help me out?

    Thank you for reading and the help.

    Hmm, okay firstly Ork Kommandos traditionally come with 25mm bases.
    Secondly, GW sell whole bags of those for cheap.

    Craft stores like Micheals or possibly a home improvement store will have these little wooden circles in a bag that might be the right size. You could try those. Alternately, if you have access to a Mitre saw or Band saw with a guide attachment you could cut them yourself out of an appropriately sized wooden dowel.
