Gamers Grass Tufts – Review

I purchased a selection of “tufts” from Gamer’s Grass a few months ago to try and spice up my desert bases. I’ve always been a bit wary of grass tufts after a bad experience with a crushed packet of unnatural looking grass from Army Painter.

These tufts proved to be much better and in a wide range of colours and sizes.

I first tried them on my Blight Kings and they instantly gave some life to the otherwise barren bases:

Impressed, I decided to use them all across my bases and movement trays – usually to cover up any scrapes on the sides caused by gaming. The Plaguebearers got the same treatment:

The tufts arrive attached to a clear sheet, well spaced. This allows you to pick them up with fingers or tweezers individually. The latest batches are self-adhesive, but I still apply a bit of superglue to the base first.

The range keeps expanding. Recently they added a moss-sized option that I grabbed to try out.

The smaller moss-size pieces are great for putting at different orientations. I decided to hide some of the gaps/joins in base scenery by gluing moss-size tufts over them:

I like to use the tufts sparingly as all my bases have been desert-like so far:
