I'm in the process of making some buildings for my Mordheim table. So far i have 2 almost complete.(pics coming when i get my camera back from the cottage this week end) I made both of them ruined, that is to say, half of each structure has been destroyed. I was just wondering what percentage of "non-ruined" buildings some of you have on your tables?.

As a side note: I have found that making a ruined building actually takes me significantly longer than an intact one. Seems counter intuitive, but true, for me at least.

Well, there is the option of making an intact piece, not based of course, and then cutting it into two. Thus, creating 2 terrain pieces.

Also, I don't think I have ANY complete/non-ruined buildings on my tabletop. I do have a single Wizard's Tower that seems to be intact... But nothing else has escaped the comet's wrath.

And not just the comets wrath, but the widespread fires and rampant looting and pillaging afterwords has renders my terrain to nothing but ruins! Ruins are always more fun because they allow for more interesting movement phases and cover battles. If i were to make a (mostly) fully intact building it would be a fairly short and all stonework barracks, but of course the roof wold be removable.

as the others have said ruins are more mordheim feeling. Intact buildings cannot be entered an donly block LOS, ruins block LOS and can have loads of fights to remember happening in them, as well as being used as a maze to outsmart your opponent. Smile

Well, if the building has a flat enough roof you could get on top of it, so it's still useable in that way. Personally, I like the idea of mostly ruined buildings, with maybe a couple intact buildings here and there.
