My research on Japanese Roadblocks in Burma. Roadblock Battles on the Retreat from Burma and Bishenpur, Potsangbam and Ningthoukhong – Gurkhas on the Imphal Plain 1944 convinced me I needed some raised road features for Burma. I designed the raised roads, S&A Scenics made them for me. and now I’ve painted and flocked them.
From the box
An exciting box arrived from Simon at S&A Scenics. I couldn’t help ripping it open immediately.
And setting up a few pieces for a quick snap.
Painted and unflocked
The box arrived at 16.30 hours my by 20.00 hours they were painted (although unflocked) and ready to play in my Ningthoukhong Experiment .
Painted and flocked
A couple of days later i got around to flocking the banks of the raised roads.
These photos don’t do the raised roads justice, so I set up one of my 4’x2′ Wargaming Boards and plonked the new raised roads and some of my Burmese terrain. I also used the recently painted British Trucks for the 14th Army in Burma.
