For this competition I'm making some bocage, fences and stone walls.

Here is a picture of the bocage and stone walls. I already painted them (still have to add the bushes/flock; forgot to take pictures in the previous stage). Their bases are made from white plasticard and the dirt is made from modeling clay. The 'stones' from the walls are made of this clay as well. On 2 pieces of bocage I added trees (standard premade train trees) and used toothpicks to support the bushes that will be added on later (you can see one of the bushes in front of the bocage).

Next are some fences I'm working on. These are still in an earlier stage. Again plasticard base and modeling clay 'dirt'. The fences themselves are made from cocktail sticks.

And the last piece I'm working on is the road itself. Cardboard base and again modeling clay as 'dirt':

Here is a close-up of the road. I used some vehicles and a  cut-off 1/72 soldier to print in tracks and footsteps:

I hope I'll be able to finish this in time Smile

I love these foot prints. Keep going, I hope you can finish.
Thanks Asdel Smile
I finished the painting on the road and the fences. Only some flocking/bushes left and I'm finished!
Here are some quick pictures (made with my cellphone with crappy camera so the quality isn't great):

Can you darken your roads a bit? Not a wash, which would settle into the low areas, but something to darken the raised areas? I really like the color variation you have already, but I wish it were on a darker base color. It looks a bit like the plaster is still showing through. (Maybe that is just the camera.)
The road was dark at first, but I lightened it up because I found it to muddy. Maybe it's the quality of the pictures though. I made some new ones today with a better camera.

I finished my pieces and put them together for a shot:

I hope the final entry post will be up soon so I can post my entry Smile
You play Bolt-Action with 1/72 figures?

I was thinking of doing the same - is there anything I might need to look out for?

No didn't play bolt action yet. I'm currently making my own world war 2 game specific for 1/72.

Sorry to high-jack this thread, but I've played bolt action once with 1/72 scale models.

The "Look" of the game is different. It feels less crowded, even though all the ranges are the same. Bases are smaller, generally, so more models can crowd into smaller areas.  It can be a little harder to discern whether a given model has a rifle, machine gun, which you have to account for carefully with Bolt Action.
