Also you could easilly use some of the same material you use for you roofing tiles inside the ruined buildings which would add some debris without affectiung the space for your models.

Also using sand mixed in tithe cat litter or on its own, painted up in browns anfd grey for finner rubble and dirt is effective.

Personally I am against rubble in buildings. It looks excellent but if overdone even the slightest then your minis won't stand up properly. And that is very annoying in a game, added with the troubles of getting your hand with a mini in the building in the first place, plus the building is surrounded by other buildings, ladders, catwalks, and your trying to measure...no thanks

I do rubble as separate pieces that can be removed as necessary for games play...also adds some street furniture to the mix.

And now for something completely different...

Last night I repainted my main gaming table. As I tidied up my gaming room (read: kick out all the trash!) I figured it was quite damaged. So I grabbed a big bucket of paint, a large brush and half an hour later I was done... After dinner it was dry enough for a brybrush... Finished!

The paint looks a bit blotchy, but this is partially due to the flash of the camera.

The table measures 240 x 160 and is custom built... The table is based upon 6 IKEA kitchen cabinets, which give me a lot of storage space! The surface of the table is coated in textured paint, dyed black and drybrushed with grey... It lacks any further detail because it's a multi purpose table, as I also use it for my dungeon when we play WFRB (if I'm in the mood I'll put up some dungeon and take you a pic)...

CONGRATULATIONS...that's a FINE LOOKING gaming area/workshop! Considering what COOL terrain pieces you're knocking out, it's also WELL DESERVED...of course, I HATE you.

OMG dude... 240x160!!! How many people do you want to put in one game

Nicely done creating the storage space with the kitchen cabinets. I don't have a seperate gaming room and I doubt it my wife will agree on putting kitchen cabinets under the diningtable


Looks really impressive!!! Keep it up

I know, I'm a lucky, lucky bastard...

When we moved to this house about three years ago this was one of the first things I did... Get 6 cabinets, a lot of MDF (18 mm thick, so it's quite sturdy)and build myself a table... Luckily I have the space to do so as our house is quite big. It's one of the rooms on the top floor, which were later added to the house. The table has seen a lot of action since, once every week (most weeks, not all), sometimes even more often, and is used for Warhammer Fantasy, 40K and as a surface to place my dungeon...

240 x 160 Is easily big enough for 4 players... Furthermore, it's higher then a regular table, so it's quite comfortable to play on while standing. The room itself is 600 x by 480 or something and is packed to capacity with other cupboards (which are filled with a modular dungeon, way too much Warhammer, loads of books and other junk), a desk and my Mordheim board (which can also be seen on the pictures)...

Oh yes, I actualy thought this through before I started... Not the cheapest option, but one of the best if you have the space (and funds)...

I just put together most of my dungeon pieces to show you a sample dungeon. The modules are made with plaster blocks from the Hirst arts molds. In total the dungeon consists of some (+/-) 150 modules (and is still growing: there are a dozen pieces nearly finished) and has been constructed over the past few years. As you can see it's in different stages of paint (from finished to bare plaster).









The dungeon is primarily used for WFRP games, but has also seen some 40K games and Mordheim games shouldn't be to far away...

NOW that is REALLY COOL! As a retired AD&Der I would have killed to game on terrain even slightly approaching that level of perfection. Thanks for posting...I think.

The dungeons look great!!!! I've borrowed some molds from a friend, but I'm to lazy to finish my stuff

They can as well be used for the Mordheim sewer battles

Or the Rivers of Blood scenario from the annual

I'm absolutly shocked , THIS BUILDINGS ARE AMAZING!

Thanks for posting that man. Lots of inspiration here.

As for the "rubble" making difficult to stand minis, I found that adding a little litter piled on the interior corners, a single "broken" wood plank here or there and lots of FLAT roof tiles scatered on the floor, plus PAINTED mud and dirt, usually gives the correct ruined look, without compromising your model's stability.

You may try that.

Hope that helps and best wishes.

Thanks for all the feedback, as always, it's really appreciated...

You should visit my thread on Warseer (link in sig). There you can see the project from the very start...

Another building ready for paint! I added shutters, doors and other small details...



And another small update. I added a (working!) trapdoor and a ladder to another building, just to try it out...





With these small alterations, my building get just a little more detailed and feel more 'alive'... Also, they give us more options during games. As we recently made the jump between Mordheim and WFRP with warbands this is a big step in the right direction.

VERY IMPRESSIVE! The operating doors, shutters, & trap doors raise the bar on Mordheim architecture. VERY WELL DONE!

With the WFRPG are your PCs acting as a single War Band or do they each have a henchmen group? RPGing through Mordheim sounds UBERCOOL.

We actually translated our warbands into PCs... All heroes and hired swords, that is... We scrapped the other henchmen who will just be used in regular games of Mordheim. It's really a lot of fun, as our warbands really made a reputation for themselves, heroes and the various hired swords.

This way we can spend an entire afternoon playing just one game, but there is so much more depth and character to it...

We are on the same page with this beasty...depth & personalization is the thing that makes Mordheim special with moi. I almost exclusively make "the materials of war" that other folks game with...kind of a miniature Krupp . Over the last few years one of the big thingys I've been making for the local Mordheim community are "still in residence" characters both natural & monsterous. SO...they've adapted the WFRPG system to the Mordheim setting. The feedback is this is a MUCH MORE EXCITING way to play the game, AND making the Resident Horrors makes the modelling more interesting/fun for moi.

Precisely, it's so much more fun than regular games of Warhammer. Sure, you can find heroics in those, but not the kind Mordheim offers...

I'm also the resident scenery manufacturor for my gaming group, though I also like to game. Nothing beats playing on a fresh piece of scenery!

Adding elements of Mordheim to WFRP (or the other way around if you will) is a very fun way to increase dept in your games, something I like very much... That's the main reason for adding all the doors and shutters to my buildings, so you have some extra options while playing... And believe me, it's a real plus, opening the shutters and shooting your enemy in the back

I also read your interview at tabletopgeeks, good read!

Now I'm off to Crisis 2009, the (biggest on the continent, or so they claim) wargamers convention in Antwerpen!

Not necessarily Mordheim (though we use the dungeon for it anyway) here are some pictures of some freshly painted dungeon furniture... I thought I should show them off on a finished piece of my modular dungeon.


Bookcase filled with (surprise) books! (not bad, considering most inhabitants of the Empire are quite illiterate...)


Storage rack or shelf...




Two shots, including a table and two benches and a commode...

I have a few more different cupboards and a lot of other stuff, but these still need painting...
Most of this items are from Thomarillion,a company that makes a lot of very nice stuff... Be sure to check out their website...

The last few games we combined WFRP rules with Mordheim which makes for really cool games. The dungeon is really suited for this, as is the city board, even more so when all the buildings have shutters and doors. These games need a lot of clutter (crates, barrels cupboards, chests) to find loot!

The city hasn't been neglected either... I've painted the bridges, made some more shutters on another building, added some more statues, I even started work on another building! More pics coming soon...

VERY COOL! AND it could be a suitable piece for Mordheim; i.e., the Temple of the Sisters of Sigmar survived the Comet largely intact. That leaves the possibility of a VERY large building with an extensice network of catacombs to go swashbuckling through...of course, the Sisters MIGHT have some objects to this plan of action.
