Lay out is looking good, yes the barbed wire is a bit hard on the eyes but a great technique :)
Now you a bit better we're looking forward to some great progress :whistle:
Cheers

yeah I had already concluded the sandbags are pretty bad, I cant see me using them. Time IS pressing tho

Layout looks excellent, as do the tank and figures.
I commend you on hand making barbed wire!
Can the sandbags be crushed &/or misshapen to make them more usable?

they are just hard styrene, and probably not worth the bother. Wish I had never bought them lol

I tend to fly through weathering, its all fun.

I'm in a serious time pressure to have this whole lot finished by the end of tomorrow night though ?!?

Adding the trench accessories and final weathering and detailing on the groundworks. This stuff is the most fun, I could spend a week!

Okay this is being revisited with a mind to finishing it to the standard I always intended..

I have used some resin accessories and juweela cloth sandbags.. the bags are drying prior to being painted. I will get those done then look at the addition of more mud all over the base, and then water puddles in the trench and in some ruts and holes in the ground..

The picture is under artificial light so better things to follow there!

Yeah thats the plan for the mud.. will be using a heavy sludgy mix pretty liberally.

For the water Im using artists self levelling gel with mud colours added to make it look suitably vile!
