Apart from thinking that this should be at the top once more, I even have a question: what size are you walls? I am currently working on my own pirate town, and was wondering if 5cm (which I currently envision), is sufficient. Especially with regard to ogres, who are about 5cm high and thus hurt their head when based and trying to enter... did this ever come up?

Eleazar -
Thak you for your thinking.
Knowing beforehand that a lot of Mordheimers are grown people and have big hands, and that there are a lot of dramtically posed (tall) figures being used (taking a long time to get there, I know),

I made my ground floor walls 2-3/4" tall. Some of the 2nd story walls are a little shorter depending on what I was doing.

Another justification of this is that the Sartosa/Tortuga buildings are in very warm climates, builders use ceiling height to give the hot air somewhere to rise to which keeps the lower area cooler.

And to guess a future question or two:

Depending on the use of the door, some are 1-1/4" wide, some 1-3/8" wide, and Lengs storefront door is 1-1/2" wide. I think all are 1-3/4" tall at the top of the arch.

Most windows start 3/4" off the ground and are 1" wide and 1-1/4" tall.

The outside stair and roof-top walls are the only double-thick parts of the buildings. There is no need to make the inside walls thicker.

The rooftop removeable wall is 1" tall on the outside.

Building size wise:

The Port Authority building's 1st floor is 6" x 8" on the outside, not counting the outside stairway. The 2nd floor is 4" x 6" - this is pretty small to game inside and is not used much, but looks better than just one big flat roof.

The outside stairways themselves are 1-1/2" wide from the building wall to the outside of the stairway wall.

The main body of the church is 8" x10" on the outside, not counting the outside stairway. I think the church's stairway is 1-1/2" wide for just the steps themselves.

Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot Smile I opted for 6cm walls, which should be quite in line with your size, too. Looks good and from what I put in there, most of the miniatures should also fit in well. First building is almost finished, once I add some floors, I'll show some WIP pics Smile

The path hath pitfalls.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to build things with one hand in a boxing glove?

Badly disguised mutation. Suggest getting it lanced off... The witch hunters will be coming round later this week. Neutral

From one mutant to another, I assume this is a friendly warning to get out of town quick.

By the way, if anyone hasn't noticed this thread is being continued via a work in progress thread.

Wow, just spent a while combing through - this has to be the most fun terrain to play on. Lovely attention to detail and it looks like you did a great job of making it functional for gaming as well. Keep up the good work!

p.s. Any chance of seeing a whole board put together using your Tortuga terrain? Or was there already a shot in the thread that I missed...?

From the Treachery and Greed thread in the Battle Reports and Fluff section. The Tortuga scenery shows up in all of our pirate campaigns posted there.

This is the stuff of pure inspiration...BEAUTIFULLY WELL DONE! thumbsup
Beyond being wonderfully detailed & highly playable, all your pieces are very versatile; i.e., I could just as easily see Poncho Villas Lads or French Foreign Legion of the Maximillian adventure wandering the streets of your towns as I could picture Mordheim style troops. WONDERFUL STUFF! What a Face

Hi, playtable! Hey, everyone!

I am new to this wonderful forum and first browsed through the galleries.
A lot of superb stuff there like your buildings or the pirate orks or or or... cheers

Your buildings simply look awesome. Respect! thumbsup

May I ask, how you exactly crafted the roofs with the orange-terracotta-coloured shingles?
What are they made of?



Best regards,
Squig

Thanks Squig. As to your question:

I cheated and used pre-made textured plastic sheeting.

The brand name is: PLASTRUCT.

The product is: "O" scale Spanish Tile Roof.

I hope that the mambo jambo of Sigmar's priests did work this time and your mutation got better Smile Looking forward to see new pictures of your project.

I'm getting much better, I just have 2 forever shortened fingernails to grow the rest of the way back in - half way there.

No more buildings as yet.

I've been painting miniatures and working on clutter types of terrain.

Nothing done except the 25th aniv. 40K model. (Looks good though.)
