| So, in a nutshell, it's a cut out from a Google Image search|
of the Uffington Hill horse stuck down on a 'chalk' painted
area of the hill (with Citadel Wraith Bone spray), and used as
a mask so grass won't stick to the hillside.
Yes, it's a hill with a white horse :D
Usual approach, although in the absence of any 3mm hardboard the hill is stuck down on 3mm foam board to hopefully keep it from getting scuffed at the corners.
Grasswork is the usual. If you've missed out on this, there is a video (yes, you actually get to hear me talk) on a previous post here.
|The end result.|
Note this fits Andy and my standard hill geometry - in fact the
right hand end is one small extra hill and a spare from the
Omaha Beach build.
Anyway, here's the process:
- WarWorld Scenics's 2mm summer grass, on a layer of Hobbycraft PVA, using their static grass applicator;
- WarWorld's layering spray, while the previous layer of grass is still wet;
- More static grass, this time WWS Autumm 4mm, with the applicator;
- More layering spray, again while still wet;
- More static grass - WWS 6mm dead
- More layering spray
- a light dusting of WWS 2mm field straw in a few places
- peel off the mask, pat self on back :D
- various grass tufts, and Noch flowers.
- A couple of rocks out of the garden.
And there you go.
If you're at Steel Lard, you may well see it. Or even play on it.
