Good afternoon all,

The next phase has been completed, I flocked the base and the hill areas either side of where the water will be:







Once that had settled I begun to add some foliage and further details, primarily to the hill areas and some pink moss in and around the rocks where the waterfall will be:



























The fern bushes are from Geek Gaming, under Tree Foliage, the pink moss is also from Geek Gaming; the flowers are by Mini Natur.

The next steps will be adding some scattered flowers to the main grass area and adding the details to the pool such as reeds, rocks, fallen branches and some plant life that has grown around the edges.

More to follow later  ;)

Thanks to one and all for your positive comments, so far it's been immense fun to build this half of the table  :D

I completed another portion last night, I added all the details to the pool ahead of the resin pour. Some fallen logs covered in moss, some stones and also plant life growing in places of the inner pool and around the edges:























Next, I will finish the tree and paint the statue that will be placed into the pool alongside some fishes that inhabit the water:





Stay tuned for more  ;)

Lush, literally and metaphorically. This is a lot like Blackwolf’s approach to groundwork and greening. Don’t stint with the different basing materials! You must have bags and bags of different flocks, tufts, flowers, plants, aggregates and so on  :o

And watch out for bubbles  ;)

A little handheld blowtorch can help with that(as long as they have risen to or near the surface.

Deeply impressive.

I would have been happy with the weathered stone as a bleak, windswept crag - but the careful placement of the vegetation puts it up a few notches to 11. I imagine this is not the quickest process, but its most definately one of the most detailed.

Looking forward to the fish.

Yes, I'm prepared for that! I have my little Creme Brulee torch ready  ;)

The fish are ready for you! Yes, it's not quick, but to be honest it is not overly time consuming, use images as a reference so you have a guide from Mother Nature.
