UNDER FIRE MINIATURES SELOUS SCOUTS "ON PATROL" 1/72.
To be fair the river bed looked better as a dry one.I will endeavor to use it properly one day!
The base consists of one sheet of polystyrene packing foam cut in half and placed in each corner of the photo frame and the remaining slivers of foam was used to build up the landscape.
The river bed was covered in Vallejo stucco (white stuff like tip ex).A good layer of sand and gravel was spooned over the bed.
This might have not have been the best to have used for this bit as I am not sure if it has dried yet!
I had to get the airbrush out to finish it off.
Some more woodland scenic rocks that I cast myself have been put around the base.Then came the PVA glue was spread over the whole base apart from the river bed and a sprinkling of small rocks and gravel followed by the ever present sand.A follow up of rocks pushed into the sand to give contrast.
Once left over night to dry the whole base was painted with Revell African brown apart from the river bed because it hadn't dried yet.
Then a quick sprinkling of MiG African mud pigment and gulf war sand.
