Ok I'm sure you have all gone to forgeworld and just drooled over some of that sweet yet expensive terrain, well the other day I got to thinking, honestly how hard would it be to make one of those pillboxes? So I got to work, you know the usual, drawing up plans and such.
So I went to Michael's(a local craft store in the U.S.) to get my supplies when I saw these jewlery boxes, they were six sided(just like the pillboxes), about the same siz, made of easily cutable balsa wood, and best of all were cheap!.
If you get lucky enough to find some of these they make GREAT pillboxes, I would show you if I could but sadly I dont have a digital camera.
The conversion work to make them into pillboxes takes only 5 min per box, just rip out the hinges and cut a big slit for troops to shoot out of, and voila! Pillbox.
Then of course you can add rivets made out of white glue for details and paint it up, then your done, it only takes about 20 min per box too!
Ya I do realize that a Michaels may not be near you, but a local craft store may carry these boxes, just plain old jewlery boxes, easily turned into pillboxes!
I made mine out of the white stuff that surronded my computer in the box. Stira foam. I bet I spelt that way wrong. But yeah mine was easy to. I stabbed it a bunch of times with a pen I think to give it texture and then sprayed it silerish
a friend of mine made some out of cardboard thingys and the spraypainted em...
or you could get a sheet of plasticard for 50p cur a roof & floor section, & 6 walls & build the box yourself & youll still have spare plasticard for some detail work!!.

Cardboard, putty and textured paint worked well for me
Generally any flat material which can be cut is usable...
The simplest would proparbly be just regular cardboard... personally I don't like this very much... it simply is to brittle for me...
But go for plasticard, it would be the best alrounder.
Personally I always go for MDF board whenever I need any flat and durable material, both as scenic bases and for buildings.
