Hey everyone, apologies if this has been answered before:

I've made a few buildings now and I'd like to spruce them up with some gargoyles, icons etc like the fluff says most Mordheim buildings have. However I can't seem to find any decent gargoyles etc for sale, does anyone know of any?

This time of the year: i.e., right before Halloween, is a GREAT time to check out the craft stores. They normally have quite a selection of Halloween decorations including Gargoyles; PLUS most of the stores are starting to discount the stuff in preparation for Thanksgiving (in the USA) & Christmas decorations.
In past years, I've gotten all sorts of cool & useful stuff. What a Face

That's a great idea DeafNala! I'm a bit delayed but i'll start searching around all the Halloween stuff now. It's also the other things i'm looking for, pretty much any accessory that people use to decorate the exterior of their buildings?

I used to hit the jewlery section of Micheals and the like.

For lots of inspiration and a few links check this thread--

GOOD CALL, Von Kurst! The eye pins, head pins, & jump rings are great for embellishing doors & such. Some of the filigree beads & brooch pieces make fine lanterns & wall decorations. If you browse your way through the store with an eye for possible uses & an open mind, you'll find a treasure trove of useful stuff.

You might get more responses if I were to move this thread to the Scenery Section. Say the word & I'll do so. What a Face

Yes please for the move DeafNala!

Thanks a lot Von Kurst, I really like all your ideas in your thread Very Happy so i'll be stealing some of them!

I didn't manage to find much in the Halloween shops and unfortunately no Micheals in the UK Sad

The kind of things I am looking for are like those in this picture, but anything similar in size and coolness, without having to but the whole scenery box sets!

As is often the case, Antenociti has something to offer:

This won't help you find any but if you already have some use Instant Mold to make more:

in the tutorials there is this great vid to help use it: http://boringmordheimforum.forumieren.com/t5126-instant-mold

Charms for charm bracelets can also work well for ornaments. You can pick those up pretty reasonably in places like Hobby Lobby in the beading section. Sorry I don't know of a UK equivalent.

Hobbycraft is the nearest thing we have i think.

I also scour charity shops, £1 land \ 99p stores & The works. sometimes I get lucky.

Bingo! That's what I was thinking. Sometimes I go on eBay and check what they have under crafts or beads (in the process I might even find something for my girlfriend!).

Here are two possible searches:

Good one, utu. I didn't know about these. Very stylish!

There's a company that has a few bits and pieces on gothic architecture:

Well, if you want these, check out here:

w w w . hoardobits . com (could not post a proper link, I'm too newbie... Wink )

Go to "Bitz | Warhammer | Terrain | Chapel" on the left top menu... There you can find not only the exact bitz you want but many others also... I'm quite used to buy from them and never had any problem. Their shipping costs also are quite cheap, I only pay USD 2.5 for shipping to Brazil... I've recently purchased a big bunch of bitz from them to start my terrain, and bought all of my skaven as bitz for my warband.

Also, the other advice was very sound, craft stores and cheap jewelry are your friends! Wink

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Arcuballis

hoardobits also sell on ebay if you'd prefer. I've bought loads from them (including some of those very bits in the photo!), great service and good prices.

A few other bits stores stock bits and bobs taken from the scenery kits, so have a look around - I'm sure there is a directory of reputable bits stores in one of the stickies here.

I ordered some stuff from hoard o' bits as well. Got a great deal and reasonable shipping time.

Thanks a lot for all the links guys! Lots to play with here, and I managed to get hold of the corbels from Antenociti which are brilliant! Still looking around for more miniature curios, i'll post any up I find.
