Alright as some of you may noticed that a lot of my Mordheim scenery had cobble stone on their bases. There was a reason for that. I have worked on making some cobble stone gaming tables. I used some peices of plywood that were 2 feet by 4 feet, cobble stone them up, put them side by side and presto...a mordheim gaming table. Right now, I have two of them plus a 2 feet by 2 feet one. I also made a small shipping yard/ warf for the game as well. Here they are.

This version has just a 2 feet by 2 feet with the shiping yard next to a 2 feet by 4 feet table.

I cut of circles out of cereal boxes and glued them on. Then I base coat it black, dry brushed it codex grey and a few other browns. Easy to do but very time consuming. For the gaming tables I sued large circles to help speed up the process. For buildings and models I used smaller circles.

Yup, a very nice effect there - and very Mordheimy (Mordheimic?).

To be honest after first seeing them in your other thread I wasn't really keen on the cobbles but seeing the table like that has changed my mind, I think it looks great.
Sterling effort. Good job fella!
It must have taken you an age to cut the pieces out.

I did take me awhile to cut out the circles. But I did pace myself. I just stock piled the circles. I would only spend an hour at a time cutting. Now I have a huge box full of the circles. Gluing the circles on the gaming board took a lot longer. It's worth it in the end.

This is quite a nice table you have here, it looks like tremendous fun to play on.

I should perhaps like to see some raised sections as well in the future so that some buildings may be on a higher platform, space and time permitting of course.

Great job on the dry brushing and cobbles.

I actually did some raised sections during my last gamming session. What I did was make some cobble stone shelving units that I stuck on my wall to display my warbands. I brought them in to use as raised sections on the table. In one of my buildings I do have a chair and a table. I dont like having my buildings more then two floors mainly becasue A: not too many players I have played with, move their models above the 2nd floor. And B: It's hard to store a terrain larger then two floors in a box for storage.

Here's a picture which shows you the house with the chair and table. also if you look closely, you'll see the raised sections. Not much like in the Town Cryer battle reports in White Dwarf but it's a start. Maybe when I can start hosting games at a bigger apartment, I'll work on bigger raised sections and bigger houses.
