I have all 6 colours of woodland scenics stuff, you cant get a GW static grass look by using a mixture. The woodland scenics stuff are all kinda 'muted' in colour, mixing them together can give you a very nice realistic look, but its overall kinda 'muted' for lack of a better term. Kinda like how vallejo model colours are to the game colours.

If i remember correctly, I use a mix of about 3 medium green : 1 burnt grass : 1 honey of the woodland scenics stuff. I will see if I can dig up some pics with any decent closeup shots. I actually prefer the more realistic colours of the woodland scenics but thats just me.

On grass, I found this system works best for me:

1.  Choose the predominant color you want to use.  Buy a bunch of this, and use it as your flock.
2.  Buy several shades of spraypaint.
3.  Spray away until you have the desired texture and effect.

I found this was a greay way to throw in patches of "dirt" or paths through the grass too. :)

Spray paint on static grass is ugly.

Get the colours you want with the grass itself.  It looks better in the end.

Looks amazing. Good work, I would be honored if I ever got to play on your board.
