As the Gallery section is only meant for finished pieces, I will post my works in progress here.

My biggest project that I'm currently working on is the following:






Currently standing at 2 ft. tall. The square 'tower' has been left relatively bare to allow other buildings to neatly stand next to it on all sides, for optimal flexibility regarding the city layout. Three of the four raised sections are connected and accessible. The woodwork, plaster and roof-tiling still need to be done.

That's a pretty damn impressive start! I like the giant Tower of Doom, fully familiar with how little impact the upper foot or so of that will have on gameplay... but the lower level stuff is great too, with a wonderfully organic quality of an unplanned mediaeval city that just grew that way, all tangled and weird. Very cool, & very Mordheim.

Also, just an impressive use of basic materials. Seeing so much pre-made GW scenery, I sometimes forget how much can be achieved with cardboard tubes and patience.

Thanks guys! Progress is a bit slow, so instead I've got here something else I'm working on in parallel.

I like the rubble a lot. First because I am of the opinion that most gaming tables don't have enough rubble on them. But also because it's a nice alternative to ladders to get to the first floor. thumbsup

I imagine all that rubble also makes the piece good & solid, & helps weigh it down on the table. Altogether, a grand looking piece!

Thanks for the replies! @Rhydderch, As the rubble is predominately foam, you'd be surprised at how little weight it actually adds! What does help weigh it down is the hardboard base. So while the piece is overall very light, its centre of gravity is really low.

As mentioned before, progress is very slow, so I have a minor update:

OH but I do LOVE tall pieces. The Tower is just the thing. AND your ruins are GORGEOUS. OUTSTANDING WORK! thumbsup

You are quite right, i.e., this is the spot for W.I.P. pieces. The Scenery & Terrain section also gets more attention that the Gallery. SO, if you like comments, this is the spot. clown

That's better! I can see them now. Great stuff! Timely inspiration too as I am going to build something similar for my Mordheim table this fall.

I love the archway in particular, it reminds me of the city walls in Nuremburg.
