Fantastic collection!
What did you use for your leaves and vines? They look perfect next to those apes.

All my jungle bases use the same recipe. I'm currently painting my Malayan figures and I plan to do a base tutorial with them (after the LPL ends). When it's done I'll add a note about it here. There's only two ingredients really, leaves and vines, both of which I get from Antenociti's Workshop.

He doesn't seem to do the vines any more but I'll contact him and ask what they were and where to get some when I write the tutorial.

Oh!

These are great. I remember seeing them when you started and thinking 'what the devil!'

But it looks splendid. I might even have to do a Zartan character for my African VSF.

That is seriously impressive, matakishi!

I admire the way you get so many different effects from the cork that you use.
I am begining to think that there are several of you, all posing as one man, as you seem to be so productive, working on so many things at once......hmmm.

Great work!

As impressive as your Zulu buildings. You make it look really easy.   
I agree with Mason, there must be more than one of you.  :D

Super sweet Jungle figures and I love the jungle flocking you use.

48 hours for the roof to dry  :o
Still, it's done now, here she is before the paint:





This will be adorning the front wall:



Today is the last day of my Christmas break and I'm trying to get my hillbilly farm house underway before work begins again tomorrow so this probably won't see any paint until the weekend... but you never know :)

Really nice, I am liking the towelling thatch, I think I prefer it to the teddy bear fur method which I have used. :)

A great look, mata. I am personally in two minds about this  terrycloth vs. teddyfur. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
