Love this little setup, it's so full of life.

I always like to see DF pieces used in ways I've never seen or considered. The stage arrangement with MBS floors, tables, and torches looks great. I can't believe I never noticed that they are all the same height! Duh! My torches will definitely be getting more table time now mixed with my old MBS sets. :D

The playing card idea is brilliant. They look great.

So, are there more "Interesting Bunny facts?"

That was labelled as #1 which implies at least one more....

Ahhh the propaganda machine keeps churning ............
Another opportunity to spread the word and educate :)

Interesting Bunny fact #1:
Carrot cake was originally made by the famous European chocolatier Bernard Cadbury-Lindt in late 17th century Belgium.
It was the result of a failed experiment to sell chocolate carrots to the French Aristocracy when taking pet Rabbits to the court of Louis MCMXXIV was the biggest trend, where dumbass rich aristocrats would try to outdo one another with displays of outlandish decadence.
So Bernard was commissioned to develop a tray of sweet bunny treats which were gifted to King Louis MCMXXIV, what followed could only be described as a feral rampage as over a dozen Rabbits went on a Chocolate fuelled rampage, decimating the Kings court in a way the future French Revolutionaries could only dream of.
Two weeks later King Louis MCMXXV declined to have Cadbury-Lindt shot and instead banished him to deepest darkest Belgium. As a parting gift to the King, in recognition of his clemency, Cadbury-Lindt gave the King a cake for his new pet Rabbit 'Genghis' and thus the carrot cake was born.
Rabbits to this day have an ingrained dislike of carrot cake, not due to the taste but due to its reminder that no human would ever knowingly give a Rabbit the chocolate that all bunnies crave, for fear of a Lagomorphic revolution from which Humankind may never recover.

Disclaimer: some of the above facts may in actual fact not be facts at all. But do not contain nuts!

EDIT: So the Anti Lagomorph coalition keep persisting with the 'False News' of the Easter Bunny and its association with chocolate in a thinly veiled attempt to invoke a world wide Rabbit Rampage. Should the ChocoBunny Armageddon ever take place then it is expected that all Rabbits would be eradicated in Frenzied Retributional Lagocide.

Yep, closure is not a big thing with me...

Various Saga Medieval and Dark Age units
Pirates and associated resin ships
Ice Age animals and cavemen
African savannah animals
Jungle/tropical animals
Farm/barnyard animals

Many many generic fantasy figures

A shredder might just work. I didn't think of that.

I also have tons of time on my hands, so I usually go old school sitting at my desk.
I try to avoid getting dust making power tools out if a knife or pin-vice drill will work.
I'm rarely in a hurry.

About the 'dedicated' term used. I would probably use 'scatter brained' to describe me.
I have so many unfinished projects, because... { :idea: SQUIRREL :idea: } oops, that thought just got in the way of finishing that thing... what was I doing. On to the next idea, then the next... I know what that last thing was supposed to look like so I feel done and move on. It's horrible to look around at all the things that need finishing, but I've moved on to the next...{ :idea: SQUIRREL :idea: }...thing. :roll: :?

All the time I need, but a constitution/stamina of maybe 4.
I just keep telling myself, that's life... :P

ahhhh springtime in Valoria.

Love all that greenery, always looking out for cheap good looking plastic plants, best source for us is the pet/plant store.

Looking forward to seeing more of Tristans tower V3.
If you need any population advice - we are the lagomorphs to ask ;)

IMO/experience pet store aquarium plants are very expensive and of limited variety.

(Having said that I do have some - but less than 5% of my “plant material” is from aquarium source/theme. The rest is from elsewhere.)

Check out your local craft/fabric store (in USA - Michaels, Joann, Hobby Lobby, etc). Wait for sales, use discount coupons, etc.

I also regularly check thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sale venues.

ebay is also a good source for bulk plastic trees and bushes from China.

Shrubs and bushes are easy to make using coated horsehair or furnace filter, and appropriate leafy/round foam material.

I actually bought them on eBay as a grab bag of lots of pet store and Michael's or Jo-Anne's plant material and a few already constructed. I like the variety they had in the group of items. You have only seen a small amount of the plasti-plants I got from them here. When I put my basement together and get a bigger table up, you'll see a lot more. These were a one time offer of a train guy dumping leftovers. Try all those places for small leafed items, these are really for a larger scale train, but eh, whatever, they work. ;)
