Dude that looks f*ckin sweet. How'd you do the brown tones on the dirt?

Just a quick but sensible mixture... Black then watered down Scored brown on the main surface, with a dry brush of bestial brown... the sunken "road" was a bestial brown watered down and applied although most of that is snow covered... we used darker browns on the craters though...

Well it took a while, howeveonly as we had other commitments, to make it didn't take long, probably 10 hours... to paint and snow.... probably about3 hours.

We used 3 sheets of 8 x 4 25mm foam board, 6 bags of lollipop sticks, 3 pots of sand, 6 tubs of bicarbonate of soda and 1 2.5 ltr pva tub (although not all used) the bunker type bit is resin though.

We doubled up the foam board to create the depth and then used cut lolipop sticks to make the shuttering and retaining walls in the actual trench.

As for the next project, my mate has his sights on a fortress monastry, we have built a massive colosium that I can get pictures for tomorrow if anyone interested so will post new ideas on here.
