My first attempts on making Mordheim scenery. The biggest inspiration was Mordheim Architecture articles from Town Cryer. Everything is made out of cardboard and some toothpicks and barbecue sticks with PVA glue and sand. Pretty cheap...

Great result on a first attempt i got to admit. Better than a lot I saw (and played with). The tower doesn't have an actual door or a window, so it is difficult to use to play. And the three houses all look the same with the white facades and red tiles, though that might not be a bad thing for some. All in all not much I'd advice to improve, so good job!

BTW are the ledders fixed to the spots?

Thank guys! Smile

@Grimscull
The tower is actually a Dice Tower. There is a hole on the roof where you put your dice... Ladders are fixed to the spots. Do you think that this is going to be a problem? I fixed them becouse when we played earlier we had the problem with ladders and stairs. They always fall of when we tried to put models in. That's why I glued them to the bases.

Lovely pieces, I especially like the houses that are connected. What caught my eye is the nice paving stone work that you did on the bases. I'd also say that you hit the right mood with the painting.
I don't think the fixed ladders will give you a headache but I wouldn't have all your buildings with fixed acess like that. It's your baby tho.
The only advice I would give you is ...make more!!! And post more pics

That's looking good, especially the dice tower, very fitting and practical.

I tried some cardboard printouts from Tabletop Geeks and here's what I made so far:
Inn

Corner house

My plan is to make all of them...

I'm sold, they look great, again, well based.
If I had to change anything it'd be the "pub sign" thing in the first pic. Perhaps a shield would work better. Otherwise fantastic.

That looks great! The pieces have a dark and grim atmosphere. You should absolutely make more!

I wasn't aware there were cardboard printouts on ttg, good to know. The houses turned out nice and certainly fit in with the ones you already have. How much extra work did you have to put into them to make them look like this (the cardboard houses I mean)?

These are just simple techniques that anyone can do it. In TabletopGeeks download section you have step-by-step tutorial by Nick Davis, where he explains how to do this. Here is the link: http://tabletopgeeks.com/wp-content/downloads/misc/MordheimBuildings1.pdf
Realy it's very simple, you should try it.

Great buildings! And great guide, but where can you get the Mordheim building sprue? I can't find it at games workshops website, is it out of print?

You can try with ebay or you can make it out of cardboard and icecream sticks as I did.

Your basing makes the printouts more desirable indeed! The printouts are a good and easy way to get the scenery done and get games going, but you went above and beyond! Job well done!

Maybe I am missing something here. I have the original Mordheim set and the card is much thinner. Do you make copies of the card and glue it on to the cardboard to give it the extra thickness?

Yes, that's exactly what I did. On Tabletop Geeks website you have printouts of the original Mordheim buildings.
