Review: Gamers Grass Tufts

Review: Gamers Grass Tufts


Gamers Grass – a Portuguese company focusing on delivering a wide range of basing accessories. Formed in 2015 by a group of hobbyists, Gamers Grass brought many interesting products to the market. Alongside well established Tufts, Flowers and Shrubs, their range consists of ready to use Bases, but also basing Bitz and very colorful Alien Tufts. It was the latter that drew my attention to Gamers Grass, which instantly resulted in some shopping. 
Now it’s a few days after the delivery. I have thoroughly tested a range of Tufts/Shrubs/Flowers and done some research, hence I am ready to share my opinion with a wider public.


As a full time miniatures painter I cannot allow myself to use products of questionable quality. This is why quality is the first thing I look out for when purchasing hobby related items.
That being said Gamers Grass Tufts and Flowers strike me as well thought through, top quality products. They are mostly precisely shaped, with near to none stray hair. Each Tuft has a bit of adhesive at the bottom and can be applied straight from the sheet. Adhesive strength is comparable with Army Painter’s tufts, so less “goo” than for example Paint Forge’s and GW’s, but perfect for my personal taste. I apply some Super Glue either way.
Most importantly, except just just a few, the Gamer’s Grass Tufts hold their shape firmly. Not much hair fell off when I was removing the tufts from the sheets and applied them onto the bases.


Visually Gamers Grass Tufts look stunning. Apart from classic tufts, there’s Alien and Spikey series, which are like nothing I’ve seen previously in the market. All tufts are fluffy and solid and thanks to a wide variety of colors and shapes – they turn bases into little pieces of awesome. 


Most Gamers Grass Tufts are very user friendly. Separated on the sheet by a clear line, easy to pick and apply. Once picked, they hold their shape. I could go on, but let’s just say they are a joy to work with.


Like with all product series not everything is perfect. Amongst the batch I purchased there are two products that do not entirely hold up to the standards described above.

12mm Wild Winter Tuft is a bit too messy for my tastes. There’s not enough separation between particular tufts and there’s a lot of “leftover” coming off the tufts during use. It looks pretty dope once separated from the sheet, still I had issues separating particular tufts from one another. 

Similarly Wild Spikey Green and Wild Spikey Beige Tufts are very messy to work with. Whereas they look insanely cool, it is very difficult to remove them from the sheet intact. They lose a lot of strands in the process. 

Fortunately these issues don’t translate to the entire range, which for the most part is full of top quality, high end products.


Time to focus on the price. I’ve done some math comparing the price of standard and “Wild” tufts from Gamers Grass, Games Workshop and Army Painter. Here’s where I’ve landed:

  • AP 77/pack+77/pack= 11,98€ translates into 7,78€/100pieces
  • GW Mordian Corpsegrass Tufs 125/pack = 12€ translates into 9,60€/100pieces
  • GG 144/pack plus 70/wild pack = 9,9€ translates into 4,63€/100pieces

Easy to say that when it comes to price Gamers Grass beats its competition hard and that is great news! 


To summarize, when it comes to professional hobby tufts Gamers Grass is totally in the lead. The vast variety of unprecedented lush colors and types is by itself a good reason to try their offer out.  To top it all there’s perfect pricing. Their range as a whole is super solid. I will definitely use these from now on and wholeheartedly recommend you to test it yourself. 

Where to buy:

You can order through Gamers Grass official store, or try out your luck in a local hobby store. To make things easier for you, Gamers Grass prepared this awesome Store Locator. So what are you waiting for? I invite you to, at the very least, take a peek at their offer.

July 2023 Update:

It’s July 2023 and I am still a huge fan. I have been working with Gamers Grass products for a few years now and throughout that time I got rid of all the alternatives. Gamers Grass is beyond any competition. I just love the quality, visuals and how user friendly their products are, at an affordable price on top.

More importantly the Gamers Grass range is growing. Just recently they sent me a package containing a variety of new releases. Just look at this stuff – it is out of this world!

February 2024 Update:

February 2024 hit and we’ve seen some expansion of the Gamers Grass regular 2mm tufts. Eight new products combining the features of “wild” and “tiny” lines into a 2mm series. As it happens, the Gamers Grass gifted me with a full set of eight. Now when I had sufficient time to get to know these streamlined products thoroughly, I am ready to share my take on them.

In terms of user friendliness, surface adherence and stalk length coherency – the product quality is of the same utmost best that you can expect from any and all Gamers Grass tufts. Shape variety is great with a mix of really small, medium and large swathes of tuft goodness.

Colors are strong and vibrant (where varanted) and with a few exceptions, do match their larger counterparts that I had in stock to compare. Sadly, even though they do properly convey the ‘feel’, Burned and Brown 2mm tufts look out of synch with 4mm versions. Depending on your preferences this might be a positive, allowing for a bit of variety on a base by combining slightly different color tones and sizes. Still it seems like something worth being aware of beforehand.

Personally I love to see the 2mm tufts line expanded. They are easy to work with, offer wide variety of uses and look amazing. I also very much appreciate the Gamers Grass pro customer move of offering all the options from really tiny to large wild swathes of grass in just a single pack of tufts. This is a big deal for anyone who wants to try out these amazing tufts but is not invested in a large scale miniatures project.

The Alien Neon (pink/purple) ones are the best I’ve had so far.

I just got the blue and the turquoise for using on an alien ice planet base design for my Black Templar, and they’re not as vibrant.

The blue are a lot darker than they look in pics, and the Turquoise is quite dull.

I think they’ll work for what I want them for though, as I’m going to work GS world snow into them and use their frozen texture as well.

Hopefully the turqouise will add some frozen alien tones to the bases. I got a great recipe for doing snow bases from Trovarion the other day, and really can’t wait to try it out.

The Green stuff world snow texture is hard to get though, it’s sold out everywhere. I have to order it direct from them. It’s definitely the best snow I’ve seen though. it isn’t just like those little balloons most companies use, it actually looks like snow.

I can share the full recipe with you if you want a good snow planet base idea.

PS: he didn’t use the frozen tech paint, but I have seen this stuff in action and it looks amazing, so going to add this step myself (the tufts also were my idea)
