Not that I’m becoming obsessive about this most mysterious of plant but I couldn’t resist this variation on a theme. Whilst looking at the 'cute and fluffy creatures' and picking up the plastic aquatic plants for the previous attempt I spotted this small ‘Buddha’ head a snip at £2.50 and been dying to use it somehow. When I saw 6milPhil’s brilliant 'roller-coaster' terrain feature using cork tiles I just had to give it a go.
6milPhil also had a great call when he sourced his aquatic plants from ‘Products for Wargamers’. I saw them a 'Salute 2011' and thought now there is a good idea. Just checked them out online and they are certainly a much more favourable price and a better pattern for the leaves than 'Pets at Home'.
Apart from the little ‘Buddha’ head and ancient stonework the build was exactly the same apart from a bit of old electrical cable used to give a bit of variety for the jungle creepers.
