Breaking Ground! As promised the roads are coming. The printed terrain I've been using for the last few years was fine, but since I started modelling all my buildings in MDF I really wanted to get some 3D texture into the roads.
I had a look around online and the Clean Streets tiles from Tablescapes came up as the nicest solution so I put an order in in April with a local online retailer. However, since then the delivery date has shifted and shifted. Knowing I had a game coming up I looked around again and found the damage streets tiles going exceptionally cheap (60% off) so I ordered those. I'm not too keen on the heavily damaged sections for general play but the lighter ones will do for now and if the clean streets turn up I'll be able to have both damaged and undamaged sections.
So the tile arrived today and I eagerly assembled them and set about applying the base coat.
This is Montana Gold Black Granite which will do a lot of the work for me. After this dries it should take little more than a wash and a drybrush around the damaged areas to finish the tarmac. After that it's stencil time.
The set also comes with 8 plaza style sections which I'll spray tomorrow or next week when I do the pavement sections on the road tiles. So far however, so good.
Until next time, keep on painting!
