I started with the base and for reference I used some pictures of the region where the battle has been (30km from Harran):

It is a sandy to rocky landscape with only small plants growing around. It is mostly flat leveled with some rocky hills around. When the figures are positioned I gonna add some more plants. I choose to add a dried out stream, which formed after some previous rainfall:

That terrain looks great, dombom. I love the effect of the cracked ground in the dry creek bed. :love:

It gives the impression of dry season and hot weather, thats what Crassus let his legionaries suffer.

Yet more top groundwork. I'm going to go and put it out there...I think your groundworks/bases may be the best on this forum (which is saying something considering how good all of the members on here are!)
