Great details made with clay, Larry! I have also used clay for forming a river bank, which is less messy than using plaster or hydrocal.

Thanks everyone.
I got the pieces home in one piece and test fit them near the guns. Happy to report I picked a compatible size.




I going to finish letting them dry and then paint them up.

Nice work Larry.
Working in clay is fun and great for adding details to a scene.

I wish the new recruits good luck! Hopefully for them it's late 1918.

Sorry Larry, nice modeling but too clean. There was mud, mud, mud. I am afraid your scene looks as though it is set in the desert. Those guys you have set in your scene would have mud stains up to there knees hence the use of Puttees.

Passed your e-mail onto Adrian and he apologised and will contact you direct.

John, Thanks.
There will be lots of mud. I just need to pick the correct color for French mud. I live in the southern US and our mud is a bright red color. The scenery will be completed after I figure that out.
