How to: Pallets
It's time another nice and simple tutorial, this time we will make some 28mm wooden pallets to be used a variety of games. I came across a nice tutorial on the Lead Adventure Forum with the subject making some pallets. I just loved how some simple matchsticks and balsawood could be turned in some really nice scatter terrain for modern and zombies games I decided to make my own tutorial which is slightly different as I'm skipping some sticks and pieces to make them even faster! Enough, let's make some pallets.
|Before we start we need: a stanley knife, some woodglue, balsa wood, matchsticks or coffee stirrers, a ruler|
|Which pieces do we need first of 2 matchsticks with a length of 3,5 cm for forming the base. Then we need 7 pieces of balsa with a length of 4 cm and a width of 0,5 cm.|
|Then we take the matchsticks and glue two pieces of cut balsa wood to them with woodglue|
|After that we add the rest of the balsa planks to the matchsticks using woodglue.|
|Now we make another two pallets and glue them together to form a nice piece of scenery for your modern city. Time needed per pallet probably less than 3 minutes, not too shabby!|
