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.

      This is something I started working on a looong time ago.  I finally made the push to get it done and get it out--probably donating it to one of the FLGSs.  WIP  here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87566-ruined-building-terrain-pic-heavy-ish/
      I wasn't trying to get too, too fancy with this.  Rather I began with the intent to see how quickly I could make a good enough piece of terrain.  Had I not taken a year-long hiatus from it I may have succeeded, as I think that barring drying times I have around.
      You can see a Bones skele or to lurking around for scale.  I was having a challenging time with my camera and the lighting (room is kind of in disarray at the moment), so I have a few different exposures here.
      Had a lot of fun with the fiddly bits like the graffiti, wire conduit, and dead plants.
      In the fist and second pics you can even see one of my new backgrounds in the...background--too bad I made it for a standard mini, not a large building.
      Questions, comments, critiques welcome!

      A craft store near me was going out of business, and I found the rock molding kit from Scene O Rama for $1. There was enough plaster to make  2 molds of each rock. I painted them as instructed with the provided paints, glued them to balsa squares and rectangles, added some dirt and the talus. Some bushes added for color and interest. I wouldn’t use balsa wood for this again. The washes and thinned down glues caused the balsa to curl. 
       
      I figured id use them as difficult terrain indicators in our D&D games.  I’m thinking about running the old timey Isle of Dread adventure for my group, maybe these will come in handy.

      I didn't see this listed so:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery
       
      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      This is just something that's been on the SoS for an embarrassing amount of time.  Finally making the effort to finish it up and move on.  Materials are corrugated cardboard on a base of stiff cardboard/MDF.  Rebar from paperclips.  Rocks, gravel, and sand, and a straw for the pipe.  Spray primed with black, wet brushed with gray hobby paint.  Next will be some highlights and a wash, some vegetation, and done.  Reaper Bones skelie for skale!  Pardon the rigged light box--lots of other house projects have my hobby room crammed with crap at the moment.
