Cheers for your comments. As you can see, my grey sandbags were less good as the mix was too soft - it took a lot of failed bags to get it right so I appreciate your pain.

I found a firmer mix was easier to work with, held its shape better and gave a better end result. My process was to roll the greenstuff it into a sausage and then cut it into smaller bits which were shaped by hand and then assembled. I did the crease/fold when they were part-set to minimise deformities and make them conform to the natural shape of the wall. I also took some nics out of the wall to make it look like bullet holes/battle damage rather than the drill technique. If you have ever worked with or seen sandbags the sand will always drain with gravity, leaving an even distribution rather than a perfect hole. This video was the inspiration for my process: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWCG1SOJxOo
