Here is my latest Haqqislam Djanbazan sniper on a jungle base . Because so many have asked what I use and how I made the base . I also included a small tutorial on how I made the base .

After I dry brush the sand in the base I will add a mixture of fine turf and sifted dirt .

this is what the base looks like after I add the turf and dirt mix .

I use a green fine turf to make a moss on the rotted log . I use PVA glue to do this .

This is the look I wanted .

This is the plastic flower I use to make the ferns with .

I dissect all the leafs off .

I use CA glue and zip kicker to glue all the leafs into the shape and size fern I want .

[Thumb - IMG_4015.JPG]
I also got these plastic flowers and added them to the base .

[Thumb - IMG_4097.JPG]
After I assemble the ferns I will paint and highlight to the desired color I want .

[Thumb - IMG_4100.JPG]
I also will add static grass tufts .

[Thumb - IMG_4102.JPG]
Its easy to do and I had a lot of fun making them .

Loving the lush look of the plants. I think the moss is the best part, I gotta pick up some of that stuff. The base fits the model perfectly.
