New terrain boards

Sunday's game at Partizan requires no fewer than 7 additional terrain boards. Here are four of them; two river banks and the Via Postumia (on the right).  

Most of the boards are 12mm MDF with flocked paper pasted onto them. Several that needed contouring (the river banks, for example) are 6mm ply with 3 layers of 2mm MDF glued to them. The raised road  is solid timber, and heavy, with it! Tomorrow I am going to add patches of long static grass to break up the big green areas.  

Luckily, I had off-cuts of flocked paper left over from previous projects (and a gift from mate Ian), so the big expansion has turned out to be a relatively inexpensive undertaking.  As well as for Cremona, the additional boards will be really useful for regular gaming chez Bat.
