Mordheim Board and Terrain – Part 3

Welcome to the third part of our Mordheim terrain series, this time we’ll be concentrating on the building construction work that has been going on in support of the epic board we’ve been making.

More after the break…

Firstly, if you’re only just checking out this series, check out the links for the first two posts:

I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking and just show you all the progress on the various buildings we’ve made so far.

This building uses a small foundation of Hirsts Arts moulds to elevate it above the ground, with HA moulds being used for the floor too. The upper levels will have balsa wood flooring.

This building has the whole first floor made from bricks, with the second and above floors being made from a timber frame with wattle and daub, much like the Tudor houses of yesteryear.

We wanted to create buildings that gave us a variety of different levels to fight from, as well as gaps to allow makeshift bridges to be placed between buildings. You can see some of the bridges in the first picture in this post, and I’ll post some more pictures of them next week.

Using the Mordheim building sprue, we added windows and doors to the buildings. Because of the number of window frames and doorways we’ll be needing, we’ll be casting these sprues so we don’t run out.

As you can see, we ran out of windows at this point. Better get casting!

Check back tomorrow for some more updates on our Mordheim board.

I am Ares, a keen 40k player, modeller and painter. Somewhat of a hobby butterfly, I always have multiple projects on at once. I am just starting to get into WHFB as well as FFG's X-Wing. I am also mildly obsessed with Mordheim, I think I have three or for WIP Warbands kicking around somewhere. I must finish those some day...
