A few years ago...someone gave me a plastic bag that contained (32) odd/varied shaped terrain pieces that were made out of a foam type of material with the brown sides & green turf tops...made in varied sizes that average about (3"x3" to 4"x4")...(do not know who made them)...I finally came up with the idea of using them for basic simple terrain of the kind that I wanted. This is how I used these pieces:

 

1. These are the (4) main components that will be mounted on a ceiling tile master base and built up into a piece that will be called the (mushroom dale)...it will be a piece of about (24"x14"). All the mushrooms are hand made out of green stuff putty...the tree trunks are all metal cast (don't know the company who made them).

 

2. These are (4) of (12) flower & plant terrain pieces that are used at random on my tabletop game board (8'x4')...with a dark green felt covering. I use a lot of the concept in my fantasy world of (giant flowers & plants)...like the movies (HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS & MYSTERY ISLAND)...Now I can have giant bees, ants, wasps, butterflys and praying mantis insects.

 

3. This is a " phase gate "...it is a simple arch that has a blueish grey mist...you can't see through or into it...it can lead anywhere...once you step into the mist and go through...you can not return because after you step through it (on your side...it vanishes)...you have to find a (2nd such gate) to return through.

Ah! I recognize that gate as being from Heartbreaker Hobbies in cooperation with Grendel for Warzone, once upon a time (from some resin sets they had of doorways and pillars for a Dark Legion "Citadel" at one point).

I love the giant mushroom base pieces. That looks very much like a "fantasy forest" -- or maybe something that would work in Wonderland. ;)

      Have you ever thought to yourself, 
      "If only I could make this mini temporarily huge, I could really go to town on the details, blending, etc..."
      Because this line of thought is about to get me into trouble. I've seen quite a few examples of kickelf busts done here, and seeing the sunbleached and sorry state of some Garden Gnomes I found last year in a forgotten tote bin, ideas began to ferment. Also I've been playing more Mordheim than is probably healthy on the PS4 which led to dreams of Gnome Witch Hunters purging the lawn of weeds and heresy. Which then led to various other forms of madness that can be expressed in a lawn setting.... but for now let us begin with Gnomes and Mushrooms.
       

      Partial basecoating done with some ancient craft paints, as I'm somewhat intimidated by the sheer amount of surface area I'm dealing with, and the fact that my skintone blending is not something I feel is paticularly strong as of now. The plan is to have his shirt come back up to white, and his overalls will also be black. The shoes as well, maybe. Beard and hair will likely be blonde. His walking stick might be converted to an axe once I find my hobby saw and get a pattern traced on some balsa wood. Overall, the vision is of Puritan/Amish village mob.

      I've already coated the stems in beige spraypaint, and I'm thinking to paint the caps in an orange/red with white in the holes. I'm tempted to try sculpting some Malefaction faces on them, but seeing as how I've never sculpted anything before I figure it's best to get used to painting the absurdly large first. (As I type this I hear the voice of future me muttering something about how the sculpting is inevitable and something about moldmaking. He's suspiciously silent when I ask back concerning winning lotto numbers...)

      I was browsing Kickstarter and saw this. It reminded me of @malefactus. Good mushroom people, reasonable cost.

      I was heavily inspired with Malefactus work and I wanted to paint a Goblin old style and sculpt / add some mushrooms.
       
      The Goblin is from Metal Magic ( now OOP).
      The Mushrooms , some are sculpted ( the larger and the round ones) and the pointy ones are Resin from Ristul's Market.
       
      My WIP for those interested.

      The little guy has just consumed some mushrooms for inspiration on his latest musical creation. I wonder if the other Goblins will like his music.
       
      Without further ado, the pics.

      Here is my finished "spirit of the forest" diorama.  Including a bones bird familiar and metal squirrel familiar from 02756.  (The axe was from a Frostgrave plastic sprue - cultists or soldiers?)
       
      wip is here

      Oops - meant to put his in show off.  How do I fix it?  Mod help?

      My girl and me like to hike, stroll, walk...
       
      We often follow trails that lead through rural areas, nature, forest or historical sites.
      I would like to share a few pics, so I can show you what the Netherlands look like aside from the big cities and harbour.
      Yes...we do have tulips and windmills...but not everywhere.
       
      I hope you guys and girls and creatures like it.
      These were made today, due to Liberation Day I had the day off ( not everyone has a free day but the Military does).
       
      An Anthill, A Windmill and Tulips, some nice mushrooms attached to a tree and a statue of BACON.
