This looks awesome.  

 

I've being wanting to built an underground/dungeon themed backdrop, but it keeps getting pushed down on my to-do list.

That's so amazing! I want to make a jungle base for the savage avatar gorilla so this is great inspiration. May I ask...is this the rosemary deco plant from IKEA? I swear it looks very similar but at this scale extremely convincing for jungle flora!

I got it from a store called Action, Dutch version of a dollar thrift store thingie..

 

I got other stuff too, looking at Ikea, Aquariium Plants etc are a great source for it.

 

Cut it down use it differently and you got trees and stuff.

Some more explanation about the vegetation, so people can use it themselves.

 

The Long Plastic plants are from a thrift store. ( Action)

The smaller plastic bushes are from a pet store, Aquarium dpt.

The long dark green vines are called Tilandsia and I picked those up in the craft section of a Garden Centre. ( Intratuin)

The Ivy/climbing plants on the bottom of the door are from Mininatur, they come in different colours.

The moss/grass etc were from several mixes, Knarthex had sent me a bunch, and some of my own.

I also mixed herbal tea in there, hence the brown and flower colours.

 

You can pick up a lot in thrift stores for cheap.

I also bought a little plastic cactus, too big?

No, since the real thing in Arizona grows taller than a man, it will make a great addition to a base.

I also bought fake coral from a thrift store, for underwater purposes.

 

Look at Toy/Pet/ Garden and DIY stores for many useful and cheap things to use in the hobby.

      About this project
      Why another tabletop terrain project? 
      To give you an entire village-in-a-box!  A unique design, that gives the illusion of tiled roofs, but where you can easily balance your precious miniatures!  Easy to store - can be assembled and disassembled over and over! Quick to assemble - no use of glue is required!  Simple to use - the MDF surface reacts well to many types of paint!   What you get in the box 
      16 fantasy buildings (4 of each type, see below)  Optional extra height for 8 buildings  Optional extra tall "wizards tower"  Assembly & painting guidelines Type 1: The Roaring Lions 
      The tallest building in the Dread Streets - at least if no one nearby dares add another store! 
      Type 2: The Twin Dragons  
      The wary citizens of the Dread Streets make scarecrows of their houses - but there are no crows, only neighbors with thieving fingers... 
      Type 3: The Lucky Seahorses 
      The shape of a seahorse is said to bring luck in the Dread Streets. Nothing else does... 
      Type 4: The Firebreathers  
      Considered a dire and foreboding shape - since gutter water is often sprayed from the mouths of the Firebreathers onto the onlookers!
      "The Wizards Tower" 
      Wizards are not to be trusted, and are required by the law of the Dread Streets to live at least two stories above ground level.

      I bought the Golden crackle paste medium instead of going out to buy the GW crackle paint... but so far no crackles in my test swatches. I'm hoping some people here have tried Golden before and have any tips. Do I need a base coat? Glue on the bottom? Thicker layers? Does it need the full 3 days to dry & cure even for small terrain pieces?
       
      I'm hoping to be able to just use what I already have, but I might be able to buy some Agrellan earth this weekend if the Golden doesn't work. Or if there are any good crackle paints for a dry desert texture I could find at Joann's or Michael's or Blick.
       
      Thanks! :)

      I am trying to break out of my lurker mode and post more.  I have many excuses for my silence the last few months, one of which is my lack of a good photo set up.  So I decided to just take crummy phone photos with the scant natural light angling in the windows across the room.  I actually like the results. Especially since you can't see a lot of my poor painting as well.
