    So, what with GW releasing the Idoneth Deepkin, I decided to try my hand at making some "underwater - yet still on dry land" scatter terrain for them.

    Used broken bits of Plaster of Paris this time and the paint is only washed and drybrushes - no priming whatsoever.

    The plants are from an Aquarium and the critters are cheap plastic toys that aren't glued down so can easily be moved / removed.

    More Jungle scenery coming SOON - my Armies on Display board will be a much bigger and new version of my waterfall you have seen already :)

    C&Cs welcome and appreciated.

    Will the plaster not crack and chip over time?

    They are all on CDs.

    Plaster might chip and crack? Maybe, one of the reasons I was trying it out to see how to use it - seems to be ok so far :)

    I really like the idea, but find that unpainted aquarium/plant bits look completely out of place next to miniatures until they're painted...

    It's not about accuracy to real life plants, it's about accuracy at scale. If you like them, that's all good.

    Fair enough, that is a good point. Finding accurate-scale grass for 28-ish-mm is hard in a hobby store... but a lot cheaper :D
