Understand how standard image is made but if I want wpa_supplicant included do I add this to packages in base image?

Hello mrgreen :-)

The wiki has some good pages:

https://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/How_to_make_a_custom_ISO_image_with_mkimage

A simpler option may be to copy the wpa_supplicant package to another USB stick (or the same stick if there is room for another partition) then mount the stick, copy the .apk file over from the "live" environment provided by the ISO image and then install it with `apk add wpa_supplicant*.apk`.
