This was posted here before. I think you can find it in the Scenery inspiration thread. Tom also dedicated a post on his blog to this board and the creator, Wolfgang, did post a reply.

I was lucky to see this gaming table live and in action at the Hamburg Tactica convention 2008. Our forum member Horatius plays with Wolfgang regularly. That's enough background info I guess.

THAT IS JUST INCREDIBLE! affraid

I LOVE IT ALL from the castle on the hill to the body floating in the river. It's the sort of thing that we all aspire to, but can never quite attain. GREAT STUFF! Thanks for the post. thumbsup
Now I think I'll go back & stare somemore.

Actually these are 2 x 3 tiles so it is not always the same layout. Smile

Always love to look at that table, Beautiful! Even his chimneys go to little fireplaces! My only complaint... a 40K oil drum in the river? should have been a wooden barrel.

For those who did not yet discover it, Wolfgang also made a WIP thread of his Mordheim:
http://gidian-gelaende.de/Material_HP/Wolfgang/WIPmortheim/album/

It's the best board I've ever seen and everywhere someone posts a link to it, people start to cry Wink

It WAS new to moi. While it may have a link floating around in some dark, dusty corner of the Forum, if you hadn't posted it, I'd have NEVER gotten to see it. SO...Thanks MUCHO for the post! thumbsup

Especially when you consider that most of the storeys of the building (except for the castle, the ruined townhall and the cranes) are modular/ interchangeable, too Very Happy
Add to that the playable sewers and you get into a lot of possibilities. And the best thing about it is that the huge amount of terrain really reduces the effects of shooting Wink
We are playing our third campain on Wolfgangs board now and it never fails to amaze me with its amount of detail.

Is they're any forum were this isn't mentioned at least once? (I'm not saying it's a bad thing, it's a very good thing!)
Also, is it just rumour or has he really made fantastic high-elves sea-board?

It's a spectacular board, it really is. I like to have the viewer on the computer while I'm grading papers, so that when it all gets too much, I can just look through a few pictures of the board, and then get back to grading!

But Horatius, I'm jealous! Did I read correctly that you get to PLAY on that amazing board? Shocked Amazing. I got the idea from it that shooting would be limited, which is what our gaming group aims for (pun intended). Lots of buildings, close together, means that shooting effectively takes tactical skill. But I love that the sewers are playable too.

In short, it's a hugely inspirational board - I've already been making plans in my head that use the foamcore construction technique where one layer of card is stripped off the foamcore to allow rocks/bricks/stone blocks to be modelled into it with a craft knife. I'll be using that technique for my next building, I think! I'm also trying to think how I can build some buildings that have a sewer section underneath them that 'spills' onto the surface of the board. Not nearly as cool as the board in question, but it would be something, at least!

No, the high elf harbour is not a rumour. I think the gidian-site in the link in the first post should have some pictures of it, most of Wolfgangs terrain boards are shown there. He is the most creative, talented and obsessed builder i have ever seen..... and on top of that time consuming hobby he even writes books (but not about building terrain or fantasy, historical novels)
That cuts into his building time a little bit, but he still runs out of space to store his terrain about once a year Wink .

Just finished my terrain board this week. Having seen this gentleman's incredible elvish port, it hardly seems worth getting any pics taken... Sad

Comparing one's own work to Wolfgang's unearthly revelations of perfection is probably the first step to quitting the hobby so stop it, man.

No WAY! These boards inspired me to NEVER build terrain. The bar has been set too high. HOLY COW!
