Waterloo Sandpit

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.
Nearly done
How many figures can I fit in?

Here was I thinking it was a kiddie's ash tray project converted to a better use! One doesn't always know what one is looking at!

I freely admit that even the finished article bears a striking resemblance to a poorly made dog bowl...

Surely you mean 'Dogbowl in the Rustic style'?
