I wanted rocky ground with patches of grass and weeds to represent the Gustav Line in the summer. I used some light brown and green tuffs, with a yellow-green static grass. In the end I used ideas from both test bases. The final version started with the darker base coat, but used the lighter colour for the base edging.
Step 3. Once the putty and glue was dry I painted the base with Burnt Umber (941).
Step 6. I then painted the edges of the bases with Flat Earth (983).
Once the paint was dry I added the vegetation. The tall grassy tufts are Silfor tufts in summer and autumn colours. These are glued down with PVA at the same time as the static grass, which is a colour I mixed up myself from several different brands.
