You may have noticed in my photos of the Waterloo game the modelling triumph which is the famous sandpit (across the road from La Haye Sainte).
This began life as a chunk of 2-inch thick insulation foam which I hacked into shape and then hollowed out. The sand effect was created using......real sand!
A Prussian flagbearer (the first figure who came to hand) tries it for size.
How many figures can I fit in?
