The plowed field looks great. If you wanted so variety you could a some green flocking along the tops of the rows to show the start of the crops growing. Just a thought.

It is a nice looking, neat field. But unless this is a modern field plowed by modern farm machinery, the furrows are too even. I would suggest you make them a little uneven with some slight snaking of the furrow lines.

I don't think you can do that with corrugated cardboard Jim. It looks like that's what he used. I like it myself.

Very nicely done sir. I really like the grass along the road.

I suggest putting some grass over the edge of the ploughed field, as you have done with the dirt road. At the moment it looks like the earth is on top of the grass, but the grass would be growing over the edges of the earth. There is a ploughed field a minute away from my home and the edges blend into the grass rather than end neatly next to it. Having said that, it looks very good as it is and I'd be happy to game on it!

I like the effect, but if I could offer one small observation. Most field are irregular in shape, so perhaps try to avoid straight edges and square shapes. Same with the road – if you made the grass edges irregualr, it would sit really nicely on your table top.
