You may recall that last month we had a sneak preview of Terra Firma Studio’s 15mm flexible metalled road sections. Well, I’m pleased to be able to report that Andy over at Terra Firma Studios has generously provided us with samples of the finished product
The range consists of 300mm long straight sections 50mm wide (£3), that includes useful bridging pieces to connect dirt with metalled roads (£4) and, for those of you travelling into town, 100mm wide pieces (£5) for urban battles:
As one might expect, Andy has also produced a compatible set of 45 / 90 degree curves and a variety of junctions: (£2.50):
Each section is manufactured in a latex free and tear resistant fabric, is fully textured and comes flocked or unflocked, as required. Each piece is weighty enough to lay flat on the typical wargamer’s table, including over hills, and lightly grips the surface of your board helping it to stay in place:
The wide 100mm city road sections fit perfectly with Battlefront’s recent barricades set:
Andy has worked to improve upon the original pieces by adding grey / white highlights to the textured surface which adds further definition and quality to the final product.
When placed alongside his – or your own – range of scenery, you can produce a really satisfying table:
Without doubt, these pieces are the best metalled roads I’ve come across to date. Highly recommended.
