6mm dirt roads

I’m in the process of building my first 6mm table to go with my kickass baccus crusades dudes. Anyone have any recommendations for semi-arid/desert roads? Thanks in advance.

Yes, try Fat Frank's ebay store. He currently has flexible 6mm/10mm desert roads for a very reasonable price.

Get a sheet of greaseproof paper and a tube of decorators caulk in brown.  Squirt a bead of the caulk in a long line on the sheet of paper.  Flatten it with your moistened finger then scuff up the surface with a suitable impliment (I used a frayed snapped end of a cocktail stick).  You can scatter a bit of fine sand on it at this stage for some added texture.

When it is dry you can peel it off the paper and drybrush it suitable colours.  From a single tube you should be able to make more than enough roads.

As fate would have it I also just made a bunch of roads (and in the same way as jon1066 did):

The process itself is very simple. Here's a simple tutorial:

...ooor of course just buy the fine roads sold on the Baccus website. :)

 

 

edit: yikes, this forum squeezes photos to fit. :D I added links to the regular-sized photos.

Jon1066, thanks for the tips !

Thanks Battle Brush Sigur, We spend one hour on your website !

And it is was a real pleasure !
On the two pictures above, is it an already made terrain for only one battle or it is modular ?

Thanks, my actual website of course is http://www.battlebrushstudios.com/ ;-)

The setup is basically just a GW grass mat, caulk roads, felt fields, some single-based trees and more dense forests made from foliage, corrugated cardboard and toothpics.

 

Here's a full overview of the table without photoshop tricks: https://www.tabletopwelt.de/uploads/monthly_2018_02/noshoop.jpg.9eff18111f1136a50792af7816c93751.jpg
