Yo. I don't really have the time or space for projects of my own at the moment.. so if you want some day laborers for a blitz weekend of terrain building sometime, give a shout. I'll drag Goonstah and HarryMason along as well.

If you get some specs and sketches going, I'd love to help out with small stuff. More of a Mordheim presence at GothCon is a cause that deserves some solid support

@FKSN. I appreciate the offer, i'll get back to you on that. I'm sure there will be something i could use some help with later on.

I also have a question, as i'm currently working on finding all the materials i'll be using.
I was wondering what you prefer most for supportbeams and such in larger houses? The two types of wood i'm focusing on are Pine and Balsa and the idea would be to use Pine for structural supports and use Balsa for flooring, etc. Since Pinthe offers alot more streng then Balsa. Is this a good idea or should i just stick with Balsa all around and pay a little extra?

I've been using pine for everything. McDonalds coffee stirrers are awesome for detailing. For my floors, I've simply scored the foamcore heavily and painted it to look like wood, due to material shortage. It takes a bit more time, and it's easier to screw up the final look, but if you've got a steady hand it works fine IMO.

Do you find Balsa to actually have any advantages over pine in terrain building? I can't really think of any.

The advantages balsa have over pine are.... well, only to be slightly lighter and easier to work with, other then that i can't see any advantages.

I think i'll stick with the plan then and use Pine for all the structual work and since i have access to cheap balsa, use it for detail woodwork like floors and walls. For the most realistic look.
