First of welcome lerp! You've got a nice looking table there. I like buildings with some furniture still in there, so thats pretty cool.

I dont think there are real rules on how manny terrain you need to play a decent game (maby only a rule about how manny beers Wink ). But I think your table needs some small terrain futers like walls, hedges and piles of rubble to give warriors some cover if they want to cross the street.

If your stuff looks THAT GOOD using a cell phone for the photos, it MUST look INCREDIBLE in actuality! Shocked

From my own jaded perspective the ONLY number of buildings, like minis, you can have is NOT ENOUGH Suspect ; from a more realistic stand point, the initial number of fairly good sized building I did for a commission Mordheim table was 16. The guy I made the table for then had me make up 8 more for denser terrain & swapping pieces PLUS two wings for extending the table, again with extra buildings.
The initial board was 4'X4" with each wing 2'X4'. The Rules recommend a 4'X6' board for four or more players, SO I would say about 24 buildings would provide a fairly packed board.
CAVEAT: Remember when considering these numbers that I'm a Crazy Old Man who LOVES making buildings & adjust your numbers accordingly. Deaf Nala Smiley

I have to agree with the others - this is a very cool board.

I also agree that you should add some small bits like barricades, piles of rubble, groups of barrels, overturned carts or similar. More ladders and walkway / gangplanks between the ruins would help a lot as well.

The more terrain you have and the more ways you can use it in a game, the better your games will be. Very Happy

Looking forward to seeing some games on this board. cheers

Thanks for the advices, I will make some small bits.

Futher more I would like to buy a graveyard, Do you know where I could buy it?
(I don't think that it's a good idea to make it)

Armor Cast, www.armorcast.com makes some very nice graveyard pieces:



They're ALSO quite reasonably priced.
Wyrd Games, www.wyrd-games.net have some nice graveyard accessories. They're meant to be base accents, but woud work well for a gaming board or diorama.
I've done a few scratch graveyards & have found they are actually rather easy to do, more so than the ruins of Dear Old Mordheim. Suspect

Like the board, the little details look great also. As for scenery amount as others said its not essential for certain amount. about 25% of the board covered would be sutable even for 4 players. pleanty of cover, so pleanty of bloody brawls.

I really love the Caserne, it looks awesome! However, personally, I think that's not nearly enough terrain. I know that we're trying to set our table up so that most buildings are 3" or less apart from each other. Since 3" is the max distance you can leap, that works out perfect.

I know what you mean! The thing I normally find is the older the word, the more ways there are to spell it! Rolling Eyes

Glad to be of some small assistance.
The Catherdral Ruins look good. AND they should work WONDERFULLY with the Graveyard. I look forward to your developing terrain. thumbsup

@Warboss Kurgan: for REALLY creative spelling you have only to check out some of the stuff written during the (English) Civil War. Suspect
