I have a question on the jungle board - were you able to buy the aquarium plants in bulk somewhere? I've been looking around, but pet shops seem to charge too much to make it worthwhile.
I actually just got lucky to be completely honest. I had a fair amount of the GW plastic jungle plants donated by a friend that didn't want them. I also bought a single pack of aquarium plastic plants from a pet shop for about $14.00, and althought they were a different (better) colour they looked to be from the same type of mold (or very similiar) as the GW ones.
I also stumbled upon these large sprues (the one in the photo is about half the size of how it came) of smaller plastic plants for a about $5.00 each from an Asian ornament and furniture store. These are fantastic for adding more depth and colour, you can also cut the leaves off and stick them individually to a models base.
Also I went hunting at a couple of the Discount shops here in Adelaide and found batches of Aquarium plants for about $2.00 a pack. Individually they look fairly plain, but when mixed together with the rest of the plants they do the job of adding variety and colour.
I also went and bought a single pack of the GW Warhammer trees and mixed them up with some of the old 40k jungle kit. worked out pretty well, but a bit too costly for the end result.
Hope this helps, and if you discover anything in your searches make sure you send me a PM
