This is awesome :!:

I saved it to my inspiration file.
I got one for my 50th birthday. I can not believe it was 12 years ago.

Thank-you. Yours is very nice. I also sodded over the MBA Bag-end. Lots of fun to battle in the shire. Here's another from a Scouring of the Shire game: https://www.flickr.com/photos/9975128@N ... 971427559/

The Burrows are looking fine, glad I bought a set. Oldent, I used material like that to sod my hobbit holes. https://www.flickr.com/photos/9975128@N ... 190029386/
Nice job.Well done.

Image

I built this before I had a large collection of Hirst Arts molds. It was also only the second time I used a LED tea candle. I was still using plaster to cast with and house paint. I made this Hobbit house before I discovered the floral matts.

Image

The camera I used for the photo used floppy disk

I want to mention I prime first because I use different materials. It does not matter to me what color the PVC is. I am going to prime it first.

Image

The pewter gray is just a bit darker than the DF gray base coat. I use black primer over hydro cal. Priming is the only way I can match and blend colors to come close to DF colors.

Image

I use DF colors to add the details.

Image

The green water is shallow water green wash made with floor polish.

Image

Use matte medium if you want a wash to be flat.

Dammit dammit dammit stop giving me more ideas! I don't want burrows to look like forest paths or swamps or anything! I have to save up for KS6, I'm totally bled dry! (goes sobbing in a corner)

I hear what you are saying but if by some chance KS6 is not for me I will be buying three big sets of burrows.

That could work well actually.
I think traditional reindeer moss or lichen would work well.
I also think this product is cool

Image

Look for this in the spring floral section of your local craft store. It is not out yet.

Image

It comes in both rolls and sections. I took this photo several years ago.

Image

Doormats are also an option Cut them from the bottom like you would cut carpet. I cut some in 4" by 4" sections they can be painted and dry brushed to taste. The blank section was painted as a gator hole. I think this photo is a good example of a deep water base color. DF Deep Water over black primer.

Image

The detailed bog. Note the doormat grass

Just realized that the burrows with their current paint scheme actually seem to work pretty well (in theory) for a forest path as well. Just put a bunch of trees on the sides, maybe some woodland set pieces... a shrubbery...
Interesting idea, they also might be able to be used as a muddy/swampy rivers.

And since you said shrubbery, I now have Monty Python stuck in my head.
" What do burn besides witches?"

I think some of the sections will make very good ponds.

I made these for Rue Wars.

add flock and Realistic Water from Woodland Scenic

It is all in the details. The leaves were created with Green Stuff Word punches.

I think the tile in the attachment would be a very good candidate for this kind of detail
