Looks fantastic! Is the body of the cavern expanding foam?

The cavern is made of carved styrofoam (PS) boards.
Actually, my trick is to pour a few drops of acetone on the styrofoam (beware, this is dangerous so if you want to try this technique, do it at your own risk and in a well ventilated area with respiratory mask + nitrile gloves). The acetone will dissolve the styrofoam and make stalactite-like shapes.

It does look like it's going to be amazing, so... time will be well spent! & like Codsticker said, once you get another section done you're half-way there, & it won't be so bad!

That's a very cool technique!

So yes, I decided that the cavern needed some lightings. And thus, I went on the web looking how to install LED lightnings. I choose blue and red LED because I wanted to have a lugubrious unnatural atmosphere for this cavern that will be underneath the graveyard. Sounds very Mordheim to me ^^

I also took a video of the table but I didn't find an easy way to insert it here so I will post it on the facebook page if you want to see it.

I know it's hard to imagine the final effect, but what do you think of the LED colors?

The lighting is a SPECTACULAR effect. It will be even more so when everything is painted up. OUTSTANDING WORK! thumbsup

I really like the golden lights in the underground part- it looks like lantern light. If I am really honest, the red and blue lights strike me as a bit SciFi. Green would certainly be appropriate though  Very Happy .

I see your point with the blue and red leds but unfortunately the green leds I had where not powerfull enough (very pale green light). On the other hand, I think the intensity of the red and blue will be attenuated when the whole thing will be painted. I think it will be darker and more sublte.

Impressive work! I certainly think the red lights will work, especially when they're shining on dark stone -- I'm less sure about the blue, but it might just work! It'll definitely have an unnatural effect.

Quick update today about the painting of the cavern underneath the graveyard. I went with a dark yellow color which I thought would be a good compromise to keep the cavern dark but not too much. With the LED lightnings on, this looks a little bit awkward but that's exactly the kind of feelings I imagine one Mordheimer would feel exploring this damned city.

I worked on the module with the Basilica. For those who remember one of my initial post about the Kits & Bits I had selected for the Malval table, the Basilica will be based on the Roman ruined church kit from Fenryll. There will be also a secret access to the cavern underneath, leading to the graveyard. More on this later Wink

I still haven't decided what color to paint the Basilica. Should I stay with the same color? or should I go with something a little bit different than the other buildings?

That looks very promising. As it seems to be a special building I would go with a different colour-I think my temptation would be white (or nearly white). If you want it to look like it was intended to be an imposing structure than maybe a very dark grey,nearly black.

I'd say stick with the same colours on the outside of the building (with ruins it's all outside, but you know what I mean) to tie it all together, but go for something much brighter on the internal areas. Probably white, maybe with some decoration -- or faded gold if you wanted to try a more Russian Orthodox feel.

Great looking piece already though, even without paint.

I'm still unsure about the colors for the Basilica so I'll postpone this for later...

Anyway, nothing new nor fancy today, but I finally painted all the buildings of the three remaining modules. I strictly followed the same color scheme than for the buildings of the first module and I'm very happy because there is virtually no difference between them.

I had this GW Wizard tower in stock for more than 3 years now and frankly I thought I would never use it. Hopefully this Mordheim project is the perfect excuse to paint it and play it. I was a quite disappointed because the gluing of this kit was horrible but the details and the overall look makes for it ten times.

The tower does look rather nice. All the skulls make it look G.W.. The overall effect is very suitabble for Mordheim. SPLENDID WORK! thumbsup

The painting continues and now it's time to work on the Graveyard and Basilica. I really like how everything is coming together but when I think to all I still have to do, it can be overwhelming at times...
