From trees to inhabitens, from little villages to flying capitels.
Start by learning how railroad modelers do it. Read up on the techniques, tools, and the methods they use. I t should then just be a small step to adapting their knowledge base to suit your needs.

I was going to say that, but you said it first. So +1.
I build such things using mostly polymer clay. You can make just about anything from polymer clay. My most recent project was a miniature terrarium made using polymer clay, a glass dome, some wire, seed beads, glue, acrylic craft paint, and silk plant parts. I made a base of polymer clay that looked like a woodgrain platform. On top of that I made a base of "moss" made from polymer clay. I then made some ferns by using wire and cutting out "leaves" from silk plant leaves. I made an orchid plant using polymer clay and wire. I made little mushrooms using head pins and seed beads. I finished off with a bit of details pained with acrylic paint. Anyway, I hope that helps! Good luck with your project! Oh and if you do end up creating a fantasy landscape, I'd love to see it!

Oh, and who are you? The question doesn't give a username because it's anonymous... We can be friends! Yay!
This looks like a great movie. See the trailer for some inspiration! http://www.avatarmovie.com/ I've always wanted to build a living fantasy world, with real plants.
Wow! You and me think alike!
