    SS is a terrain type used in Field of Glory. To be honest, I’m not sure what it exactly is, let alone how it should look.

    Up to now, I’ve used a naff piece of felt but feel I need to make several examples in a pleasant & suitable manner.

    The terrain type BTW is “meat & sandwiches” for Medium & Light Infantry, difficult to varying degrees to all other troop types.

    So: suggestions & links entertained.

    Not having the book I have no idea.
    However from what I am inferring from the description and from your description of the rules effects, I would say it is very lose/dry sand.

    Not the kind of stuff seen here which seems fairly OKish for driving/marching on:

    But either wet loose sand:

    Or dry loose sand:

    Either of which would seem to fit the bill, and would slow down movement, be that tanks, chariots, or indeed just men on foot.
    Running up a soft sand dune is tiring!

    So maybe decide which suits your game board/location best and have a look around for that?

    Just make up some terrain templates out of MDF. and stick some builders sand on with PVA. Job done. It is sandy, it has a defined edge, that is all you need for game purposes.

    Do some more with sand and rocks, and bingo, rough ground.
