At Orchard Supply Hardware (or most hardware stores), you can find this special grip tape that is applied to the edge of each step in a stairway. I don't have a picture, but imagine a roll of the stuff. Anyway, just ask to get a couple feet it, and along with it you will need the following things:
- Some bass wood
- A hobby knife
- PVA White Glue
- Static Grass
Now that you have your road piece together, simply drybrush an earthy color (edges too), and after the paint drys, water down the PVA glue to apply the static grass over the areas you put the glue.
From here you can make any variety of road pieces you want, be it shorter straight pieces, curves, angles, intersections, etc. The only reason why I say to have six foot-long pieces is that your road will stretch across a Citadel battlemat, which is virtually a staple amongst wargamers.
Here's some pictures of making the road:
|Material before being sprayed...|
|Joined pieces, one completed, and one ready to paint|
|Same pieces, with other peice painted.|
|4 separate pieces demonstrating the 4 steps.|
Next time I will show how I make my forests.
