I have particular areas in the soil which have puddles but these do not show up unfortunately. However, the rest of the soil does look a bit too dry and needs some idea of humidity although not soggy wet. so i will take care of that by the time i get it to the club. The tyres have dry soil on them but no mud. This is the first time for me to portray something on a wet ground so i welcome your comments. I will try to fix anything that is still fixable. By the way, i love the figures by masterbox, they are so versatile and they have some really nice adeas!
Brian if you work glazes of thinned oil paints [vandyke brown, burnt umber] come to mind would unit the idea of damp soil more, but control it not to over do ... re the wheels more then mud I think dampness might be ideal IMHO, I am presuming the aircraft landed [taxid] on a concrete runway so probably wet tyres might be more appropriate ... I guess!
Masterbox [have you seen the Luftwaffe officer with dog and ladies?] have some great ideas, also check MiniArt, they are coming up with more civilians and also a nice setup of DAK crew all bare chested and with Bombayhats, ideal for any Desert/Sicilian scene ...
