Tiny boccage table

So, having decided that my tiny town need a countryside, I cut some masonite in 20x20 cm squares and glued a 5mm styrofoam sheet over it so I could cut out some depressions, ditches and add a river tile or two later on. I added a small hill to. I splashed over some filler where I had cut the tiles, and when it dried, white glue/water + sand.
 Melvin loves unpainted styrofoam, I think he ate some cut out pieces...

Painted with some brown, grey + desert yellow highlight on the roads. Painted styrofoam is no good to eat apparently.

How to hold and behold?

Just two pics on how I hold the minis I paint, first plastic shot glasses for 20-28mm minis:

And screws for the really tiny stuff:

Blue-tac/sticky clay/whatever is really helpful if you aren't that good at balancing stuff.
