Very neat and tidy scenery, looking forward to some more. What is the material you used for the buildings (the grainy looking one)?

VERY NICELY DONE! The pavings stones & the dock are particularly striking...love the mosaic section. If the other sections of your gaming table are of a similar high quality, you'll have yourself quite a SPECTACULAR setting. thumbsup

thx DeafNala! Smile
stones and mosaic hand cut with hand saw and utility knife from wood rectangles (not balsa wood)
all edges hand sanded/rounded
it took a long time and the next board is 24" x 24"!
mosaic = compass rose for nautical theme...

Very nice. I like the colored part of pavement especially.

I just find it too much clean for my taste. Do you consider adding pieces of rocks, dirt or something like that? I am pretty sure Mordheim wasn't clean like that even before the coming of the comet Smile

thx all for your comments and perspective (luv the site and the commentary and community...even when I don't exactly agree)

hopefully I'll I have more soon (working on WF vikings as middenheimers right now...and 2nd 24" x 24" board))

I totally get the the comments on "too neat and tidy"

...but that's just my personal aesthetic (and I like the other contributors who rock it similar or better)

and I really appreciate the "dirty" other styles...but mine will probably lean "cleaner"...you'll see

anyway, my board's are fun to play and what else could I ask for?!

LOL Smile

PS undecided on whether to do fantasy medieval or more robert aspirin thieve's world?! (i.e. mud walls and flat roofs)

re: the dock

it was far from the meteor (it wasn't the A-bomb)

2 structures were stone...stone intact

have almost done scratch-built ship for dock too...soon

Looks like an awesome piece -- I'd love to get a game in on something like.

Personally, I don't mind the clean look; maybe it was an area that was unaffected by the comet-strike?

I love the tiles. Are those just thin pieces of wood with the edges sanded down? It's really a great effect.

The Rustoleum spackle/texture spray can't be beat. If you do a wash of some browns, greens, etc., you can get a little more weathered, dirty look.

Thanks for sharing!

Nice stuff, I don't know why I've never thought to just cut buildings out of plywood. They'd be sturdy, fairly light and cheap to make. Seems like making them out of wood would also offer opportunities to get some realistic burn effects going.

I tend to also think that not everything in Mordheim should be blown up. In my mind most of the damage would've been done by looters after the fact. I do like my dirties a bit dirty though. Dirty, dirty buildings...

thx Ordo Septenarius and Drayven

yes, tiles custom cut from thin wood pieces from craft store in US

hand sanded to both round corners and bevel/round edges

this was actually the longest time spent on the board (it literally took forever!)

Smile

plwyood + wood glue + whatever = very study / durable / long lasting

foam board = faster but less sturdy; i like but not my preference

undecided if I'll shape next tiles by hand

next modular board will have modular blgs + undercroft

minis soon...

I just love buildings. Honestly I didn't thought that the buildings are from plywood. It seemed to me that they are made from pieces of rubber because recently I seen some sort of rubber mat made from small chips of recycled rubber and that thing is surprisingly 90% identical on a gleams,so I was fooled.

A well life goes on.

But I must say that I love the simplicity jet awesome look of Your work that I must steel some ideas.
For the cobblestone plazza no man I would not steel that idea,to cut some square wood to thin pieces and on top of that sanding its edges??? It seams lot and lot of work,I just have not such patience

All in all great work,now I have an idea how to process some good docks

Salute

Very beautiful terrain. I love the cicular stone work in front of the building. I also love the water effect. As for it looking too neat or clean, you could always make some small piles of ruble on some small bases that match the stone work or wooden planks of the dock. Get a few of those place around and you'll have a ready made dirty style place without making your gaming area dirty all the time . That's what I do with my gaming tables.

thx flipchuck
I actually did a full re-paint which I never re-photographed but u can see in some of my other posts
the color pallete was changed to matched my other boards
I have at least one post that shows some (large) rubble piles
I generally don't put a bunch of my removable pieces on my boards when I post
Smile
PS I don't comment all the time but your stuff is great too Smile

That's pretty cool that you do have rubble piles on bases like that. Great minds think alike. And thank you for liking my stuff as well. Coming from a master builder like yourself, that means a lot. Smile
