After one of my regular trips to the local Poundland for a few supplies I noticed that instead of the usual wood effect vinyl floor tiles they had a stone effect one as well which on closer inspection seemed to have a ripple effect on them. Perfect for rivers! So clutching three packs of four it was off home to start work. I decided to make some purpose built sections to go around the castle model that has had many an outing at Cold War Commanders games and the rest would be modular with each end being 100mm so that they can all fit together in any configuration. So after a bit of measuring and cutting I ended up with over 20ft of river for the princely sum of £3.00 plus a bit of spray paint and textured filler.
Progress so far with all the banks textured and the river sprayed brown. All there is left to do is paint the river banks and then add some flock and they are all ready for the table. Probably cost no more that £5.00 in total.
