Iron Cross Purchase and Caulk Road Recipe

Just purchased Iron Cross WWII miniature rules. Mainly to adapt the command token system to Blitzkrieg Commander. But it could also be a fun game.

Bought from Kings Hobbies and Games -

Table that Tim had set up. His normal Tuesday night game is currently trying out Battlegroup.

This is what he told me to use for my roads. 
Spread it on wax paper.
Use trall/sp - spreader thing - a little wider than I may want (you can trim)
Spread sand or grit or ballast
Use a tool to make tracks
(I wonder if you could add static grass at this point?)
Dry 24 hours
Peel from wax paper
Paint light brown/tan
Pigment different shades

  1. I've used caulk in the past to make edging on Perspex roads. I think it was a silicone type. I painted it with acrylic paints. My chums were very surprised that the paint stuck!

    I've been told to use the acrylic version as painting will not be an issue. I haven't tried it yet.

    Your example seems to be both acrylic and silicone.
