Excellent stuff, Aart, I love the look.

I'm at stage 1 myself at the moment: eating the grapes.

You could make a horrendously fat wargamer out of those. But you wouldn't, would you?

This is great! I love the pics  Cool

In the theme of natural materials...

My Dad reliably informs me that dried-out Hydranges make good trees for model railways and larger scale stuff.

I believe that once dried, it has nice long stems with little crowns at the top that provide a good hold for flocking. Have you tried it?
