Gridless Measure stick Tutorial

Here is a quick, cheap, and easy way to make a 12 inch measuring stick for Gridless Heroscape that costs less than a dollar to make and 5 minutes or less of your time.
First you will need a 12 inch wooden dowel. You can use square dowels or circular ones. The diameter doesnt matter too much. Its more to taste. I bought this 16 pack of 3/16 ones for $1.25 from my local Walmart but you can find them online or at most hobby shops. You'll also need a colored sharpie or a washable marker is fine too, an ink pen, and something to measure with. A tape measure, hobby mat, or school ruler all work fine. My preferred choice is my hobby mat.

Step 2. Using your measuring device, mark lines every 1.5 inches on the stick with your ink pen.


After marking every space at 1.5 inches. Use your colored marker over top of the ink pen and put a line around the dowel at those points.


After marking the range/movement stick with the colored marker, mark halfway points between each colored mark. The distance should be 3/4 an inch or 0.75 with an ink pen. Then you are all finished.

This leaves you with a measuring stick that has a move/range of 8 spaces or 16 half spaces. The half spaces are used for rough terrain or climbing height.

Also, this is the very first Tutorial made entirely on my phone. Im ecstatic. Hope this helps you guys try this out and have fun. Any questions or comments welcome. Thanks.
