Introduction: Board Game Terrain Pallets
I'm a big board game fan and zombicide in particular is one of my favourites but its a 2D board and i like my 3d terrain. It can be a lot of work but in this instructible I am going to share how to make a quick, cheap and easy bit of terrain filler in the form of mini wooden pallets!
wooden drink stirrers (can be obtain for free from take away shops)
A mini b
Step 1: Cutting Out the "planks"
Cut the round end off one of the stirrers and using the base of your mini to measure the length cut out a "plank".
You will need 8 of these (two stirrers should be more than enough)
You will probably have "off cuts" that are too short for planks, DONT THROW THESE AWAY, you will use them shortly.
Step 2: Stick Em Up Pt 1
Take 6 of your planks and arrange them 4 horizontal and 2 vertical (or vice versa doesn't really matter)
Stick the 4 evenly to one of the 2 and then box it off with the other of the 2.
Step 3: Stick Em Up Pt 2
Now take the bits that you didn't throw away and cut them into small squares roughly the width of the stirrer.
Once you have 8 of these glue two stacked on top of each other at each corner to create risers.
once this is done stick the remaining two planks to the adjoining spacers
Step 4: Finished
If you want you can tidy up the edges with some sandpaper or stain them or you can even burn them a bit for that proper apocalyptic feel (OBV BE CAREFULL WITH FIRE!)
as always I hope you enjoyed this instructable and thoughts comments, criticisms and photos of your own mini pallets (possibly in use in board games?) are welcome :)
