Movement trays

Post  Ben Sutherland on Mon Sep 23, 2013 2:54 pm

so what are fantasy players doing for movement trays nowadays?

Do we have to shell out big bucks to buy the gw trays or is there another product that is commonly used

Thanks in advance

Ben Sutherland.

My next set is going to be thin tin sheets (available at hobbyworld) set on balsa, with a balsa border.

I just ordered some skirmisher trays and some magnetic rubber material from this store. The trays are laser cut and the rubber is super easy to use to build magnetic movement trays. Can be cut with scissors and has a sticky side so you just cut it to size and remove the sticky cover and stick em to the movement tray. There is also a bunch of movement tray options as well. didn't really cost a lot to order and was received very quickly in spite of being shipped from Australia.

I take that back the movement trays aren't worth it - i didnt buy those as i already had movement trays. But the magnetic rubber was a great buy. Very Happy

For simple move trays, I start with using foamcore. Bought in a 2 by 3 foot sheet for $8. I tend to snatch wooden stir sticks from coffee shops to make the edges. Texture those edges with the same material a sour model bases. You can leave it that, or do some magnetising lie others have mentioned.
