On the Painting Table: Movement Trays

I was working on some new movement trays.  I started with some hobby plywood at .75cm thickness and hobby wood squares. I wanted something to allow me to space and position the Legionaries in blocks of 10 with wiggle room for "odd" positions of weapons like Pila and Gladii.
Two ranks deep with a front of 5 is how I worked them out.  The wood is easily cut with a hobby knife and is very inexpensive and the neighborhood craft store. 
I glued the pieces together and then sanded it with fine grit hobby sandpaper.  Next up I will prime them black and paint them P3 Battlefield Green and then add the terrain.
