For my 28mm Viking project; but I am sure will work for anything. Plasticard base. A tub of lightweight wall spackleling from Home Depot. As it started to dry I formed a hill with a plastic trowel. Pushed in steps and pool of water. Then the reality of drying time. Over a week. Coated the whole thing with plumbers siliconized caulk. Pushed in my dirt and rocks. Let dry a day. Base paint over that. Pushed in the trees with superglue. Another day of drying. Then dry brushing, grasses and flowers.

Beautiful! Darker than most pieces so it's a welcome change.

That's solid wall spackling? Would it have been easier to lightly cover a hill of plasticard-based styrofoam instead?

Yes. I probably should of used styrofoam first. Thank you all.

I think it looks great. And the next one you can use styrofoam. :)
