Hi guys,

Just started my first third of a 6x4 board for bolt action. I have been following a guide from the terrain tutor on YouTube. Using a stippling effect with polyfilla. Must say I'm impressed with the texture so far. Waiting on it to fully dry before I can paint and dry brush. Here's some pics and video so far. I'll post some updates with progress.

Video is too big to upload 🤦🏼‍♂️. The above pic is the first coat. I applied 2 coats of stippling. I'll get another picture of the 2nd coat before I paint it and upload it tomorrow.

Mud coloured using just cheap indoor emulsion. Needs another coat then dry brushed.

Nice texture. I use the stippling technique myself too.

It looks like a field of mud frozen over, so if thats the effect you were going for I'd say you nailed it :)

The texture looks really good.

An issue with the old pva+hard flock approach was always that it became rock solid and had sharp edges which could chip knocked over models badly, I imagine this method avoids this?

I'm going to give it another dry brush over the top with a darker brown to break it up as it's maybe just a bit too light.

I'm really happy with the texture.

It would appear to be a lot more robust than the PVA and flock but time will tell after some big games of bolt action...

The boards are coming along nicely.

Great work and look forward to seeing them in action once they are complete.
