I thought I would take a break from Terrain Crate once I had finished painting all the rewards from the first Kickstart campaign, maybe store the new pieces away for a while.  Nope, as soon as I started going through various packs of miniature terrain I was hooked again.  The new pieces are made of a slightly firmer plastic than before and the detail is sharper.  Plastic bags worth of pieces have been emptied into my soapy water solution, scrubbed, dried, and put into the Painting Queue.

Coming off the Spring Cleaning Challenge and all the urban gardening I had done it is not surprising that the first set to grab my attention was Grim Garden from the Bleakwood Hall crate.  The pieces fit right in perfectly with what I’ve built AND answer my problem of how to replicate tiny lettuce gardens.  No really, I’ve been puzzling that one for a while.  So the gallery is made up of pictures of individual bits while the single images are group shots. Somehow the watering cans got left out of those but I will make sure they are part of the complete documentation once the trees are complete.

Is it insane that the close up pictures make me want to paint their tiny eyes?Is it insane that the close up pictures make me want to paint their tiny eyes?
Must be the gardener in me but in the end I just had to glue some flowers into these as they looked so sad empty.Must be the gardener in me but in the end I just had to glue some flowers into these as they looked so sad empty.

You have nailed the colour of those terracotta pots, look much better with flowers as well.

I just don’t know how you maintain your patience and concentration to produce such miniature pieces of art. Fantastic!
