The messy bit

Once the battlements had been taped to the foam board, I started with the clay walkways. Although I used foam board for mine, I recommend that you use proper wood for the mount, as foam board will tend to buckle as it drys.
I started with the front of the wall, building up the turf ramp. Placing little lumps of clay on at a time and sloping them slightly, to give the impression of the outside earthwork.

This was the second wall section I made and decided to do something a little different by adding stairs to the back of it. Little extra details like this are worth the effort, for they really payoff when painted.
Making sure all the while that the walkway was the right height by using the scale figure.
