    Sandbags seem to me to be the sine qua non of Colonial gaming. I need some for my Mahdist War Nile paddle boats & for my AZW gaming (to keep those Zulus at bay).

    There doesn’t seem to be much in 1/72 scale out there so I’m going to be forced to make my own. Any tips or crafty advice?

    Get some modelling putty (millput or the like) or modelling clay.

    Roll out a long sausage.

    Flatten it a bit.

    Cut into individual bags or leave in rows with indentations between individual bags.

    Let dry.

    Stick together.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lYy6lh1p3s for a larger scale demonstration of a similar technique. You don’t need to worry about texturing etc.

    Lots of other tutorials on the topic on you-tube.

     

    15mm sandbags using that technique, although not very well photographed…

    And if you don’t fancy that, Esci (now Italeri) make a whole box of them. https://www.modelmakershop.com/e/det/2440/italeri-battlefield-accessories-172.htm
