Here are the basics on making nesting shipping containers (for those of us with limited Terrain storage) This would be one in a series of boxes that fit within one another. Very few measurements will be given in this tutorial because they change with every subsequent container. I suggest starting with what will be your smallest container as it is easier to build the larger containers to fit around a pre existing container.
You will need

-Modge Podge (it’s awesome for working with Cereal box)
-a crappy brush
-cereal box
-Scissors
-corrugated cardboard with one side removed( I prefer USPS or FedEx Boxes)
1. Cut out the shape seen below. The very center box is the width and depth of your shipping container The sides are the height of the container. Make sure that the Red lines indicated in the image have the same measurement.

2. Fold as shown in the image. Use a straight edge to make sure it’s a crisp fold

3. Use modge podge on the inside flaps fold them in.

4. attach paper clips around the edge of your box and allow 5-10 minutes to dry

5. cut out 4 2.2cm squares. Fold them in half both ways and cut a single line to the center point from the top. Use a punch to make two holes in the bottom two squares. Fold in half and modge podge the flaps. Clip them together to dry.

6. Measure .5cm to the right and left of an existing fold(corner) in the cereal box. Cut out the strips for use. Also cut out .5cm wide strips for use. You may only need 2.

7. First glue the top corner pieces on (the ones with the holes in them), then measure, cut and clue on the corner pieces (the 1cm strips with folds in the middle) the run the height and length of the container. Finally use the .5cm strips to fill in the bottom border.

8. Measure the long sides and top of your container. Cut your corrugated cardboard to fit and glue on. Do not cover the two ends.

<img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2384/5778470468_5e8d0a42e4.jpg">

9. Cut out the door bases. If find it’s easiest to measure the desired width of the combined door and fold the piece in half. Once you have the desired door width and shape just use it as a template for the others. Glue those pieces on both sides.

<img src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2612/5777929947_ef8aa656ee.jpg">

10. Cut a long strip off of your corrugated cardboard. This will have the round depth that you want for the door bar. Cut to length and glue on.

11. Make your ladder. See <a href="http://easternfringe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7900">my ladder tutorial</a> for that. It will leave you with pieces for your next step. Glue your ladder on.

<img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3405/5777936899_7d90b9fb14.jpg">

12. Glue the remains from your ladder creation on to the door as shown to create hinges and the handles for your bars.

<img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5222/5777938765_1e5cee2539.jpg">

13. Lather rinse and repeat with larger and larger containers until you have tons of Terrain that takes up very little space. Oh, and give it a sexy paint job!

Thanks yous twos. I've been benefiting from the tutorials of others for so long that a contribution was way past due. Yes, you don't get much more simple than a box.

A very nice tutorial which produces some great looking card terrain, I'm very impressed. Now it's time to add some paint so people can't even tell that it's made from card.

I really like these containers !

Containers are IMO a must-have in Necro, they fit so well with the multi-level terrain.


So I just wonder : are you container closed or not? Because in the first topic on them, you show them all in one.
For the lazy guys, I think a texture to print and glue on them could be nice.
And it could allow to create a necro container terrain in a few hours.

You have already think to other modular terrain?

Hello. Thanks for the comment. Here is a pic of the containers nested.

<img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6008/5888637065_61c970ff03.jpg">

The are open on the bottom for easy nesting. I suppose a printed texture would be useful but I like the visual of the 3d texture.

Great !

I also prefer the painted container but it is always nice to have way to build quickly a decent terrain.

I think that building could be build using such a method. I will think about that...
