Here is where my Mordheim/Warhammer terrain goes. I have just almost finished my first house and will upload it here shortly! Very Happy

*Edit: So here's the almost-finished house!





Close-up on some stonework and...a wall! (Need to build the outer wall on the second floor.)

I also have to build the third wall of the shed and have a door there. Or should I leave it without one and make it look like a smithy? scratch

So here are the pics, hope you like it! Comments and constructive criticism is ALWAYS welcome, so don't hesitate on leaving a remark. Very Happy FYI the "balcony" thing is supposed to be added later by orcs, not built along with the main house! All my terrain will be on 30x30cm tiles to fit in my gameboard, so I can use all my terrain for both Mordheim and Warhammer. (Warheim? Mordhammer?)

That does look great! How long did it take you for this building?

GJ!

VERY COOL...especially the Orcitectural improvement. Your additions are a definite improvement to the G.W. section. Thus far VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

@BurnTheWitch: Thanks! It took me...longer than it needed to, I've been working on it since summer of 2009, but I recently just started seriously on it again. Very Happy I could do it rather quickly, so that's no real indication.

@DeafNala: Thank you! You people who like my work are awesome people with excellent tastes! Wink Most of my terrain will probably be orcified, so if you like it you'll be happy. ^^ I might even group all the orcified terrain together on the board when I play so that it looks like an entire block converted to an orc headquarters!

Very cool! I've been mulling around the idea of broken down building being fortified for warband use! Great job! A rope from the stone tower to the roof of the smithy could be cool (especially for sneaking).

Thank you! I considered some kind of easy way down to the roof of the maybe-mithy but I kinda figured it would make the entire house a bit too accessible... Smile Maybe, thanks for the tip!

It looks like a fine little hideout for your Orks, just what they would need! Please keep us updated with your project Smile

Thank you, I am sure my orcs appreciate it! Very Happy I am also considering making the main tower a belltower by adding a bell between the flag-waving gryphons. Just don't know where to get a good bell...thoughts? Smile

I was thinking that, but isn't it super-huge? If I could get it cheaply from somewhere though...that'd rock! Very Happy

The chances to get the bell are rather good, I believe, since everyone building the Menetecel instead of the Bell has one left over. But I think you can get bells cheaply all over the place, art stores, toy stores and stores that sell room decoration and stuff.

The house looks good. As to a bell, look for christmas tree decorations.

Haha mrtn you beat me to it. Get out that box of christmass decorations in the atic.

Theorox.. your building looks great, you've done a lot to make the GW tower individual. In particular I like the shape you have on the ?smithy roof, I can just see skaven running over it.
I'm not a big fan of popsicles for roof tiles but each to their own, you've put a lot of work into it and it does look good.
The orkification is spot on and gives the whole piece a lot of character.
I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks people! Very Happy I'm not yet sold on the popsicle end rooftiles myself, all my buildings won't have them. However, I think a lick of paint will make them much better. Smile

Your idea of x-mas decorations was also a great one mrtn, I'll see if I have some...or I can probably get a Screaming Bell from a guy in my gaminggroup, there's a decent chance he's got one to spare I think!

Hey Theorox,

Probably a stupid question, I've been working on a burnt out church and I've been use 'popsicle' sticks (well lolly sticks if you're from England) to do wooden flooring and beams, I've been using a the citadel craft knife with a fresh blade and it is causing me some serious arm ache and blisters after 4-5 sticks. if you snap them they tend to break unevenly and splinter, so what did you use to cut up all those sticks?

I find thin card, like from a cereal box gives a better look for tiles when layered the same way you have done here.

Theorox - this is looking excellent. I have a project in the works that requires a bell and like others have suggested, I am thinking of using a christmas decoration.

Regarding the lolly/popsicle sticks, I gave up on those early on, they are far too hard to cut even with a razor saw. I am using balsa wood for my flooring, and like Delectable Tea suggested, thin card for tiles. You have to be careful, I find that the knife tends to wander a bit.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

Oops edit-fail on my behalf!

@The_Ferret I am so glad you also struggle with the lolly sticks, I have a huge pack of them and the thought of ruining my hand and ripping my forearm from the inside out, just to shape them is putting me off finishing my little church piece.

*Facepalm*

You use a clipper guys! Very Happy Clip decently hard, snap the stick, and if needed trim the end with a craft knife. Cutting through a popsiclestick with ONLY a hobbyknife is not something I reccomend...xD
