I've been building buildings for my mordheim games out of carboard and balsa wood, and now it's time to start cutting up cereal boxes to make the roofing tiles... for standard mordheim scale buildings, how big should the tiles on the roofs be, roughly?

Well, Im just starting to make my own terrain, but yesterday I finished the roofing of one building using tiles of around 2cm x 1cm and they looked WAAAAAY too big, giving the impression that the building was done on a totally different scale...

I will redo the roof using tiles of 1cm x 0.5cm, and not the single ones as Ive used previously, but the "row of tiles" with cuts in them, as will tell you about the results...

Just my 2 cents! thumbsup

Cheers,

I use tiles that are 1cm by 2cm.
Not all that is on display as they overlap..

Got some close up pics in my boring terrain thread..
I quite like that size.

I use 8mm x 12mm with a slight overlap - there are some pictures in the modelling section, just look for The Ferret.

Whatever size you use...

Cut a long strip for the right height (including overlap) and just notch individual tiles from that.

Keep the top part uncut; this will be covered up by the overlap.

Much, much easier to glue down a strip of tiles than individual ones.
