I was able to make significant progress with this scene over the last few days. The groundwork is done, except some grass. The mud was made with the use of Vallejo Dark Earth textured paste mixed with plaster and static grass to obtain thicker grain of the paste. The it was applied with a spatula and toothpicks. The thick mud lumps were made with slightly dryed leftovers of the putty that I scrubbed of the jar where I was mixing it with plaster and static grass. as you can see there are going to be some scratchbuilt figures, that are now under contruction. More to follow shortly.
