So I went out and board some foamboard today so I could make my room really messy and have the side effect of learning to make bits of scenery for mordheim. I've wanted to try making bits for a while and now I've decided to actually do it. Whilst I still don't want to scratch build houses and walls I am going to be learning to make raised platforms to add more minor height to my games.

First thing is to make a nice little dockyard section for my pirates! And dear lord I already hate drawing cobblestones. But anyway here will be a chronicle of my progress (and tears) as I experiment and end up with something or other!

Now it's a start at least! Here's hoping all goes well Wink I can see this making a nice corner dock, and if all goes well i can look at making some more bits and having very modular terrain!


UPDATE!!!
End of day 1 work (Well evening 1)

Not bad, slow goings but it's getting there. Got some ideas about more I'll add on once I build it onto a larger base. Then just to make a pier or two for some fun port feel! Should also work as just a raised area of town too for non port maps.

Textured wallpaper might be a better method of cobblestoning large areas like that... Cover the top surface, spray & drybrush for a stonework effect. Save you drawing every stone on by hand -- yikes!

Good start though, on an always useful piece of terrain.

LOOKIN' GOOD! I found while it takes time, doing the paving stones is relaxing & the results speak for themselves. thumbsup

Those are SPLENDID LOOKING. I have a couple rolls of the paving stones somewhere or other.
Now all you need is some buildings to put on top. What a Face

I have a couple Lemax mats in both cobble stone and brick. They don't look too bad but I tried spraying them and they didn't take paint to well. If you want to paint them then find a primer specifically for vinyl.
