Hi! I found this guardian angel statue from the trashcan. It´s pretty big (20cm). Right hand fingers were broken but otherwise it was in good condition. I thought I´ll modify this not such a unique piece of kitsch to become more suitable for the Mordheim atmosphere.

 

Wooden" parts and those two poor innocent children were removed. I didn´t like that stream of water, so I used a little bit of milliput to hide it and the wooden base.  

And finally painting more layers. I prefer to use recycled materials and I like the way how this statue started to transform into a more sinister looking angel.

Way to go! Excellent job repurposing something from the bin. She looks much better as a statue.

Thanks for your encouraging words! Need to finish the work and send a new picture when the statue is ready.

I have some other finished terrain pieces also, but at the moment the darkness is here in Finland unbearable. It´s tricky to get decent photos without some extra light and / or tripod but I´m working on that sunny !!! You shall get new shots at the latest when the spring comes.

Hello!

Here is the new project… Some of you might notice where I got the idea for this kind of platform. It´s my tribute cheers to guy called Ashton Sanders (I don´t know him personally). His webpage http://mordheim.ashtonsanders.com was one of the first I read when I started to think restating to play Mordheim again.

Tutorial was excellent and Sanders´page gave many ideas how to use insulation foam. Furthermore we need more line of sight obstacles and I didn´t want to start making a new building ´cause I just finished one.



I used milliput, lollipop sticks, rounded wooden necklace pieces from kids´ toyset, sand and glue.



Hope u like it!!!

Aston is one of my first friends here at Tom's; it's good to see his work is still inspiring Forum Folk. That is a FINE piece...keep up the GOOD WORK!

Hi! I  haven´t played Mordheim for couple of years since my 3rd child was born. Too busy with everything else.  Surprised

I made  a month ago a lego diodrama for my older son. This blue foam project was fun to do, and Mordheim  enthusiast in me  started to arise again.

Here is the result... New WIP, the Tower of Power. And we shall start  the new campaign soon.

True love never dies...at least the Mordheim variety. The ruined Tower looks WONDERFUL already. I love the staircases & the arch. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Thanks for your reassuring kind words! It really felt good to sharpen my box cutter again.

True, Alex! You don´t meet to many finns at this forum even though Mordheim is made by finnish game designer. We have a small group here in Helsinki, most of my friends are playing Blood Bowl    

A couple of statues are also must in Mordheim. I got these very cheaply from local fantasy gaming store and already added them to the tower, which is actually almost ready.

The Statues look SPLENDID with an old fashioned style of armor befitting long dead heroes. The trio will be a FINE addition to your gaming table. VERY WELL DONE!   thumbsup

I hesitated first to use statues, because they are from an old historical wargame, but who cares anyway. A little bit of black and bronze paint, and they will fit to Mordheim just fine.

I can identify. One of our Forum Fellows for a while was churning out statues that use old & much sought after O.O.P. Citadel minis. I always regarded his creations with an underlying sense of horror. Fortunately it is easy enough to remove the paint should you have a change of heart.   What a Face

I really like the design, with the stairs over the arch portal. Nice little places there.

I got tired carrying my Feldherr figure case. I purchased several years ago some audio cables for my telly and stereosystem. Those middle priced cables were insanely nicely packed, and I saved the package b/c I thought it could be nice as a gift box.

Now I got better idea! It´s gonna be the new tiny case big enough for one warband! cheers



It even has a magnetized closing system!



I´m at the moment playing with the Undead, so as an extra bonus it´s black, and looks inside like a coffin with white satin. lol!



My plan is just to add some foam inside and somehow color the cover black.

Thanks, DeafNala! My box is soon ready. I just glued black cardboard to cover the original label. Then I photocopied some text in gothic font  from the original Mordheim rulebook and glued it on.

Can I send a picture of figure case, or is there some copyright issue? I mean, like is it against forum rules?
