Thanks for that info Mikey . We do have a Wicks in our town centre. I think I will be going down the cork tile route if I find them thin enough. The beauty of cork in whatever form it is very easy to cut. The tiles certainly are looking especially useful for the curved sections.
I must admit I have been bitten by the bug for this Normandy 20mm project. The rules produced by GW are excellent and the photos of the model terrain is a great inspiration. I only wished they had charged a more realistic price for the book because it is a great book and one I can't put down for very long. But for me that sums up GW these day,s great products, shame about the prices ( with the exception of the Fine Cast debacle ).Incidently I picked up four Dragon painted (beautifully) Sturm iii and ivs for £25.00 all in at the Phalanx show at St Helens . Fantastic models at a fantastic price. For those who are not familiar with Dragon they are probably the Rolls Royce equivalent of plastic kits( with brass etched parts) and ready to runs and generally very expensive to buy.
Thanks SgtPerry I like the way you have done your Village centre and roads are great I have completed a section of road using cork tile and a mix of PVA glue and sand.I'll post a pic tommorow.I didnt think of ceramic tile glue,great suggestion i will use that in future

Gday all i have a section of road made using cork tile with a topping of sand mixed with pva glue.The mixture took about 48 hours to dry naturally and whilst it was still semi wet on the 2nd day i ran 2 parrallel line with the blunt end of a pencil creating ruts.When nearly dry to touch i ran over it with a toy car with offroad wheels both parrallel and from side to side and then across.Tell me what you all think
