i'm not sure where this question should go, but here it is.
i'm looking for thatching for my mordheim buildings and have no idea where to look. i've looked around but haven't found anything suitable.
can anyone help?
thanks.
(obviously, it needs to be in scale with mordheim/warhammer fantasy etc...)

I've seen some good results with Teddy bear fur.

I would think using straw bristles like the ones you'd find on a broom that were cut to size would work well. You might be able to pick up material like that in a craft store.

Read this recently that discusses some techniques. Good read and some pics to see how they turned out.

Citizen Sade and Mike: excellent links you sent! I checked them out and they do provide quite a lot of precious information on roofing and others terrain building techniques.

I'll keep an eye on them, as I might need to build some houses with this roofing at some stage.

I've used bird nesting material for my thatched roofs, and then airbrushed it. as I wanted it to look a bit more like loose thatching rather than just a clutter of reeds and whatnot,

you can find some examples on my mordheim page (signature link) i think it shows best on page 11 where there are some overview shots. I've just cut the nesting material to length, and glued it in place, it may be slightly more time consuming than the teddy bear fur, but I like the result better...
