I've just completed the North Gate and mounted it to foam core. That's to the size of the model I would like to extend the road that runs through the middle of the gate. It's a grey rough-rock with tufts of grass. I've looked through the Tile kits but couldn't find something with irregular borders like this. Most of them are tiles of some sort and not gravel.
Before I print six copied of Footprint B I thought I'd ask if there was one that matched. The tile kites are reasonable priced and I'd like to avoid wasting ink.
Thanks in advance and thanks for a great bit of scenery!

I'm gonna guess we're talking about Dave Graffam Models' North Gate, and Footprint B looks like it's page 6 of the part-1.pdf file. The texture doesn't look like anything I've seen elsewhere, I'll be honest. I don't even recall other Graffam tilesets or battlemats with a texture like that. If you're good with a clone tool, you can roll your own, I suppose.
Hi. That gravel texture is the one Dave used for the first models he made. They were distributed as free game accessories on his old gaming website. As far as I know it isn't available in any set. Maybe you can try to contact him and ask about availability, or try to use a software to "cut and assemble" the tile you need without wasting cardbord and ink.
mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - the best thing to do is to pull the art out of the PDF and print straight from Silhouette Studio. That way you can ensure you have the registration marks you want, and the cutlines all line up. I have a video showing how to do this easily if needed.

cowboyleland: I thought they got rid of all their free accounts, but it looks like they re-thought that policy.

rag: mproteau - The plan is Worldworks' Titan Control. They have the cutfiles but the marks are in the old format - we'll see how it goes.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oooh... I'm at 256 out of 1000 photos... so, I suppose at some point I'll fall over and look elsewhere... and have to fix up all my product listings! I'll use my space frugally.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I have all my photos on flickr, and have never paid anything...

Vermin King: I didn't realize Flickr accounts cost that much. Maybe I need to raid the Agence Eureka site and Esben Rasmussen photostream, too

cowboyleland: I think all the paper model stuff there can be found on this board anyway.

cowboyleland: In the old days the way to post pics here was through a service like Flickr. These days I have better uses for $8.99 and I am going to close my account www.flickr.com/photos/cowboyleland/ if you want to have a look B4 it is gone.

mproteau (Paper Realms): Also, a fine time to plug my Patreon :-P patreon.com/paperrealms ; I have a LOOOOT of cutfiles available for paper minis. It's all Silhouette compatible, and everything I make has a readme to cover any special considerations.

mproteau (Paper Realms): I currently use a v1 Cameo machine (they're on v4 now) and love it.

mproteau (Paper Realms): The Curio is interesting - it has a different carrier mechanism that enables embossing. Some folks like how it handles scoring more than the other machines (that perforate to make a 'score' line). I recommend the Portrait.

mproteau (Paper Realms): The CAMEO models are a bit pricier, and get you a wider feed, and multiple tool holders. Not essential features, but could be great depending on what else you want to do with your machine.

mproteau (Paper Realms): rag - I actually still have my Silhouette SD and it's still working great. The Silhouette Portrait is very much like the old SD machine. A workhorse without a ton of extras, it can handle Letter/A4 papercrafting just fine.
