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.

Vermin King: I had gotten down to less than 1/16 of a mile and not being able to stand for more than 4 minutes without crumbling to the ground, so getting better. Now, I just need to get my folks improving

Vermin King: My stressful 2023 started in March, 2020, and fortunately, progress is keeping up with the set-backs ... for the most part. I'm still upright and last Monday, I was able to stretch my after-breakfast walk to 3/4 of a mile.

Vermin King: Well, Mom has pneumonia in both lungs, so we are just sitting around waiting to hear what the doctors are going to do...

ignatious: So far looks like we're on the northwest side of it so that's good but Hermine and Michael are still fresh in the mind so I'd rather be ready. I lived on a sailboat as a kid so storm preparedness is kind of just in me.

Vermin King: ignatious, I almost called you last night to check on your progress. And to see if you were in the path. Stay safe
