Old tip from Keith at our club for basing,swapped from plaster to Coving adhesive or Tile adhesive much tougher and cuts chipping from ware and tare down to next to nothing.

While the plaster/adhesive is still wet and tacky swish the base in your sand bucket,saves having to glue it on later.

Applying the marsh grass:
Push the end of a matchstick into the filla and give it a little spin,this creates a nice indent where you want the grass to sit,now take a pinch of grass and fold it in half,now cut the bottom/fold off and dip it in white wood glue.Just push it into the hile youve made and nine times out of ten it will just sit bolt upright while drying.
Image
Once dry cut the grass to size and push the middle out to spread the grass slightly.

`I often wonder who that young lad was,
Who gave his life to cross the bloody Rhine;
And if no loved ones have him in their thoughts,
Come haunt me lad, and live again in mine`.
