storage tidy - in progress

During a tidy up in the garage over last weekend, I sorted out some shelving space above my G scale model railway layout to use for my wargaming stuff. Two old warped shelves have been replaced with wider ones to hold up to sixteen 12L 'Very Useful' boxes.
---oXo---
Today I've been organizing a better place to store my 'table riser' sections. All gathered together ready for storage...
I moved my Inet Router box to another location to free up the space between the end of the gaming table and the wall. All the table risers fit in nicely there, with some space for hill sections.
Next job is to sort through the gaming stuff in the spare wardrobe and a cupboard I took control of.....

Road building .....

Part of the strategy for the defence of the Zinzendorf is the building of new military roads to improve supply routes.

A 'sketchy' Map of Zinzendorf province...

The first of these roads is being built from the more heavily populated part of the province out into Nastrovian plains towards the border with Begovia. The road building is already underway - The section from Pulverstadt to ZinzenStadt has been completed, the next section through the Scaden hills to Partoli is underway ....
