1. I do some terrain for Wargames

But not dioramas. I believe that there’s a bunch of groups on Facebook that do models and such.

2. my dioramas are a little quirky.

They're done in small glass and wood boxes. Mostly Day of the Dead themes. I'm learning about the different grasses and ground covers and glues. There doesn't seem to be a glue that dries quick enough for me.

3. There is a Facebook group

Called the Terrain Tutori that might be of help and I believe he has a YouTube channel as well. Most of my scatter terrain is made on old CDs and done with watered down craft glue from Michaels.

5. I've made two so far,

a fairy scene diorama and a Little Red Riding Hood diorama.

Here's a page from Storm the Castle showing my Little Red Riding Hood diorama. (A friend of my daughter's made the house for her to give to me as a birthday gift that year.)

I don't think I mentioned it in my comments at Storm the Castle, but I made the tree foliage out of furnace filter material. The dirt is real dirt that I baked in my oven to kill any bad stuff.

Edited to add a Pinterest photo showing the side of the house with a crooked window (and a cute little owl )
