What is the best way to seal the paint on the roads without damaging the PVC?

Just looked at the store, $20 USD, but it doesn't say if it is for a 12" piece or for 5 pieces as pictured.

5 x 4" wide and 12" long Cobblestone Roads made of a flexible PVC.

Five pieces.

Totally unrealistic. Cobblestones aren't flexible.

There is always a balance between realistic and game-ability.

I think he's just being 'cute'. ;->=

The bit unrealistic part is the lack of offsets. Bit of a quibble, but I know folks…

Dirt roads next? Hope so!

Paul, thanks for the clarification.

Will there be other cobblestone pieces in the future, besides straight?

Keep up, Bill, everyone knows that Roman roads were always and only straight!

Offsets are hardly a quibble I'd say – if you produce something like this, you might as well do it right… As it is, I'm not sure I'll want the for the Waterloo chaussée.

A great idea! But yes, dirt roads would be an excellent idea.

I must admit, I too was a bit confused when I first read (5 x 4" wide..).
I wondered: Could it be a 'single 5 ft. long section that we'd cut to suit our needs. (not the worst IF that had been the case)

I have no plan to get in on it, but the first game that came to mind: "Gangs of Rome".

Does anyone know who makes the sidewalks shown in the middle picture?

@saltflats1929

The same company makes the sidewalk sections as well, they are under the Stones Dungeon Tiles:

Painting Tutorial:

Also on the Facebook page it mentions doing a video of the road sections being painted on the other-side tan to make them double-sided. I also saw where there is going to be a tutorial to cut the sections and make other various types of sections such as "Y" sections, corner sections and such.

@Murphy, I would spray (or dabble with your finger) a VERY small section to see if it reacts to the sealer.

Hope that helps.
