I gave it a wash in soapy water and then an all over coating of pretty runny burnt umber. Dirt was dry brushed "Mississippi Mud" (my favourite dirt colour). Logs and planking were dry brushed grey and then the wicker work on the gabions was dry brushed a golden brown. The ruts of the wagon track were given some dilute chocolate brown to make them stand out more. The stacks of stores were painted khaki. The broken wheels were given the ochre colour I paint my Austrian artillery carriages.

I've also read the two Ospreys I picked up for a couple of songs at the Hotlead Bring and Buy, so I have now actually dealt with all of the small amount of stuff I got at the show. Within 2 months too, I think that's a record of sorts.
