These pieces got sprayed with matte varnish this morning. The idea with them is to have some secondary jungle bases that figures can be placed in and move through. I deliberately made sure that the paths between clusters of foliage were wide enough to accommodate 25mm bases. As you can see, I did go back and add herbs over the paths - it definitely looks better like that.
I'll definitely do a few more of these, including some larger bases with enough clear space inside for a full section.
I've also been making good progress on some other bits.
The banana plants have been painted (drybrushing the leaves without spraying first worked) and this afternoon I added texture gunk to the bases:
The foliage for the coconut and sago palms has been sprayed, drybrushed and added to the trunks:
