Hey all I was eating a mince pie today and I looked at the foil and though to myself:"Hey they'd make great small hills, dunes or even rubble piles for cityfight"So I set about making one and through the kindness of my heart, and since Christmas is a giving time I have made a tutorial. Here it is...:

What You Need

  • Mince Pie Foil container (or any similar foil container the come with all sorts of small pies
  • Cardboard for base
  • Masking Tape
  • Paint - it's easier to spray it as it gives a better coat but you can do it the hard way like me and hand undercoat it
  • PVA Glue
  • Flock of your choice, I used GW Definition: Games Workshopsand and GW Definition: Games Workshopstatic grass for my sand dune but you could use rubble for cityfight or even snow, whatever you want!

Step 1

Gather the materials (above).

Step 2

Crush the foil up a bit to give a less even shape then form it back into a slightly crushed cone type thing as seen in this picture.[gal_img]1160[/gal_img]

Step 3

Once the foil has been prepared cut a base slightly bigger than the foil as seen in the picture below.[gal_img]1161[/gal_img]

Step 4

Use masking tape around the edges of the foil to hold it down on the base, there may be better ways to do this but I used masking tape.Gallery image

Step 5

Step 6

[gal_img]1164[/gal_img]The rest is self explanatory just paint and flock as you desire, there are some pictures of my finished sand dune at the bottom of the page. The edges of the base will be touched up later but this gives you a good idea of the finished piece.Hope this was a good tutorial, merry Christmas and remember save those mince pie foil trays![gal_img]1165[/gal_img][gal_img]1166[/gal_img][gal_img]1167[/gal_img]
