Mill board progressing

I think there is enough varnish on the river now, so I have added the flock and some clump foliage to the watermill board. I still plan to add some long, dry grass tufts and some turf ground cover over the weekend, but the board is 95% done now. There is space to put a bridge over the river or to scatter on some grave for a ford.
It turns out that the river is a little more blue than my first river board, that is more greenish, but it is a variation that I think I can live with. I'm certainly not painting either again!
Overall I am pleased with the result and I think this will be a great addition to my AWI battlefields. I'll look to getting some photos done soon using this board for a diorama.

cheers

Absolutely marvelous work. I wish I had something of this quality for the battle of Ramsour's Mill project I currently have underway.
