Very informative post. Thank you for the sources, paint list etc.
Results look like they are worth the effort.

You mean chinchilla dust is not made from real chinchilla? I am strangely disappointed.

Very impressive work.

Wow, this was great. I am doing this in 1/72 scale. I will need to pick up chinchilla dust as my Amera plastic temples need coated. I have some of the Acheson items. Good stuff. I also own some Partha figs for both sides. I was planning on using the old TSTAF variant The Cross, the gold and the Glory AS I have 100s of Aztecs painted. Also have some Maya and Inca figs.

Thanks for sharing. They tuned out very well and I learned of another non-hobby item that we can use.

Thanks to all on the kind feedback. I have several more building (MDF) type kits in the queue so we'll see how well the chinchilla dust use works.

You have a beautiful set for the Spanish Conquest of Mexico.

Aye Very cool indeed.

As an even cheaper alternative, with much less grain to be sure, incense ash.
Coloured, flows, easily 'tacked in place' with paint or light glue, spray to finish (it will rub off under constant use).

I use it on bases mainly, but have done buildings shadow, the odd horse etc. ;-)

Chincilla dust?!?!
Is that another euphemism for some illicit drugs?!?!?!
