I've been using World Works terrain for some time now but I want more, especially since in a couple of weeks I've got 4 folks interested in doing a Pulp City game.

So I'm building my district in Pulp City from the ground up. First I'm starting with the streets. I want to make some modular roads and sidewalks and on the cheap.

For a base I use a 12" x 12" plywood. I bought 4 to make a 2 x 2 play area. Perfect for a low level encounter. Cost: $10 for 4.

For the sidewalks I bought 12" x 12" cork board which I cut into strips of 12" x 3" for each end of the board. I glued this on with wood glue. Cost: $5.00 for 4.
Image

Next I bought some gridded poster board for the top of the sidewalks. I glued this on with super glue. Cost: $2.00 for a 5 sheets.
Image

I then used texture spray paint over the whole thing and then primed it black. When it fully dries I will start painting.

I'll post updates as I go along.

Looks good so far. Nice techniques and a very easy to follow how to. How are you going to fit buildings etc... or are you just doing the streets?

Thanks. Buildings will go on their own 12" x 12" board. Once I get the streets made I'll work on some buildings.

That looks great!

Good use of simple materials too.

Nice!! Those are pretty cool boards.

I created a 2' x 2' board to use for Gen Con using cork tiles and 5" wide one-way crossroads. Might I suggest for the road itself, Rustoleum dark grey textured spray paint. I used it for my roads and it is the perfect color and the perfect amount of texture. I don't have any pics of the board yet, though.

Thanks for the comments. For the road I did use that exact product and then painted over the whole thing black. I may revisit just texture painting over the black again.

Is the Rustoleum product any of these in this link?

If not is there a specific product name as there looks to be a lot of products under the Rustoleum brand (all help welcome!)?

I don't see it there but here's a link to the product I used.

http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=31

Aged Iron is the color.

Hope this helps.

I was looking for a link too, but Larkin Vain is faster than I am. It is on the page he links. Click on the third color square from the left on the bottom row. The name and color will change to Aged Iron.
