PostSubject: the town of Mad Ponies   Mon 11 Jan 2010 - 12:40

I'm working on fleshing out my Mordheim-focused terrain collection with the some ruins and associated pieces.

I started around October / November with the following pieces from Thomarillon.de:





Then this one in a less blasted style, perhaps more recently abandoned ruined villa:





I have 3 more ruins like these to do, and we'll have a decent selection of basic buildings to add to the cardstock offerings in the box set.

I took a break from the buildings, and this weekend I just finished my foul fountain:




I'm onto building #3 next, and a crumbly Cthulu temple too. Smile

I finished another ruins secion:





A little warning to would be trespassers:



I'm a little embarassed to post this picture as its sort of shocking how different the blue is from #2 to #3. I had intended them to be able to be seperate ruins or 2 corners of the same building. You'd think I didn't compare the two while I was working on them or something. I actually did!. . . but I think I forgot to keep che4cking and by the time I noticed that I'd strayed, it would have required a lot of back tracking. Oh well. I was having a good conversation with a visiting friend while I did it. I'll say I was distracted.

I actually set it up in the gameroom tonight, and when its not under the bright unflinching eye of spot lights and digital photography, the disparity isn't that bad. :/

VERY NICELY DONE! I REALLY like the blue...seems that, much as I LOVE photos, they DO tend to bring out little flaws that are otherwise unnoticeable.

Ha, your embarrassed to post that? It's amazing! I posted a picture of a cardstock building i printed and added some wood floorboards to... you have nothing to worry about here! (my building actually looks pretty good if you ask me)


I ask everyone this, what did you use to texture the walls on your half timber house? As seen here:
Spackle? Sand mixed in paint?

Pathfinder- Thanks for the kind words. Smile

The above house is made by armorcast, and the texture is part of the resin, so I didn't have to add anything.

I finished some barricades and rubble obstacles this weekend:







As long as I was at it I made a couple of these with rocks just on the ends to place in front of castle walls and mark breaches during sieges. Probably will make another couple of them before I ever game a siege.

I really like how weathered your buildings look. How do you do your weathering? Washes? Good work. Looking forward to seeing more!

Thanks! A fair mix of drybrushing, washes, liberal use of inks and staining with all sorts of stuff colors :-)

How long did it take you to learn how to do terrain like this?

Since it's been awhile since your last update, I wandered through your earlier posts to refresh my memory as to what preceded your latest additions...VERY COOL STUFF! The barricades will fit in WONDERFULLY with your existing pieces. The Broken columns & the tall grass are favorites with moi. The colors you use on your ground work are EXCELLENT. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I really like the window treatments on the first two (Red / Blue) buildings. They have a Greek / Roman feel to them. It adds a very nice pieces of architecture to the buildings. How did you create them? Card?

I also really like the rune on the temple floor. Did you build that from scratch? Awesome details.
