    Liked your article on rebasing the figures.

    Regarding GW’s sand, you could do worse than get a sack of sand from B&Q for less than £2. Dry it in the oven, sieve it if you like, and let it cool down. Then it is ready to use. I use plasterer’s sand because it is the cheapest.

    I’ve started using Ballast from Woodland Scenics. I’m willing to pay a slight premium for a product that’s more consistent than sand from B&Q and I like to have a good mix of grain sizes in my mix.

    You don’t get this variety of grain sizes with B&Q builders sand and, at least when I last looked, they don’t have a suitable gravel to mix with the sand.

    I recommend blagging sand from Hill & Trail Landscape Services (courtesy of Dougie Trail Esq.). They supply it for free, and if you ask nicely it comes regular or extra rocky. You just dry it under a lamp overnight and away you go… I’ve also resorted to nicking some from the kid’s sandpit in the local park, but that usually means sieving it for used hypodermics, razor blades and kiddy poop.
