The sand dunes are pretty easy to make. The dunes are made of pre-mixed grout (colour: linen). The grout was placed on top of mdf and shaped like sand dunes (slight curve). I figure the prevailing wind was coming off the sea, so I shaped the dunes directly away from the water (table edge). When dry, I filled in the few gaps/cracks that appeared with a bit more grout. After this dries I applied a small amount of Strong Tone Quickshade ink (brand: Army Painter) to the slip face (back side) to each of the dunes. This adds some shade to this side. I added a bunch of tufts of grass in between some of the dunes.

Ink applied to slip face of the dunes is very noticeable (due to flash).
