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.

      Against all expectations, I'm getting back into 40K.  This is because, against all expectations, some fine friendly folks are opening a FLGS that's actually local to me.  That is, it's in the small town I live in.
       
      Activity is mostly been MTG and other card games along with 40K.  Since they are just starting out they don't really have any terrain to play with.  As it happens, I dont' have lot of stuff for 40K unless the battle is being fought on a planet that just happens to resemble the Ethiopian countryside.  However, I have way too much "possible terrain stuff"/junk laying about so I figure I could knock some things out for people to use at the store.
       
      Here are some trees I put together (bases will be done later):
       



      Other plans are
       
      To copy Chris Palmer's board game punchout ruins.  So sad about all the punchouts I have thrown away.. Add some Deadzone terrain bits to a styrofoam packing shape to make a bunker. Build some of the Deadzone terrain as scatter terrain.  Maybe make a tower and some barriers?  
      Any other ideas for quick, cheap, hard wearing 40K terrain are definitely welcome!

         Just quick post to let folks know abut these stencils I picked up in my local Dollar Tree this weekend.  They are in the school supply section.  i thought they might be really useful for applying decorative painted patterns to temple floors, walls, pillars, etc...
      I forgot to include a ruler, but they are about 6 inches square.

      Photographer Rä di Martino traveled around the Tunisian desert in September 2010 locating and photographing the decaying old sets for the original Star Wars films, which she learned had never been torn down.
       
      Fascinating pictures here:

         I recently finished the Dagon Statue terrain pieces from Bones 3.  Nothing fancy, but a series of drybrushed layers.

      Here's my attempt at Narthrax in a Smaug inspired color-scheme. She's defending her kill which is hidden at the back of the base.

      The base is a 10cm MDF board with some 3D printed rocks attached to create a cross-section effect on the edge of the base. I coated the 3D printed parts in plaster filler to add texture and used some cork, gravel and sand to finish the base.

      The horse parts are removable to make a less scary version. They're made from some old citadel horse and skeletal horse models. The horse head has a small metal pin on the side that inserts into a hole in Narthrax's hand.

      The ponies in the last shot are from Impact Miniatures Chibi Pony set.
