Fortifications and Craters - Desert Style

Following on from the desert style barbed wire here's some more up-cycled terrain.  Again these items were originally made for Great War games ages ago...  And again I've decided they're more urgently required in North Africa so I've given them a makeover.

They're very simply made from blue styrofoam with balsa and coffee stirrer revetments.

Additionally, I've given a couple of classic Games Workshop 40K plastic craters a bit of 'desert love' ;o)

The basing recipe is the same as my figures: Americana Country Maple, then highlights of Americana Tan, VMC Dark Sand and Foundry Boneyard light.  Followed by a few clumps of dark green Woodland Scenics foliage and some arid looking tufts.
