Terrific terrain! Incredible stonework. Very inspiring! I have to try to create platforms like that - it looks awesome, and gives the table a whole new life. I love the irregular shapes of them, it’s very organic; my idea for my own board was to just create square platforms, like the ones the GW studio seems to have used, but yours are actually much cooler. Great job!

I really can recommend to do some platforms. I had the feeling my scenery looked kind of dead before. Just some buildings on a flat surface. With some platforms, it gets really modular quickly. With just some platforms, wich are compared to buildings are way less work, the modularity of the gaming table is rising!!!

I hoping to have a game with the platforms soon, to see how they are working out in-game.

Hey guys, small update.

As lockdown got a bit more open, we had the a chance to have a game on my table Smile (Actually we tried Frostgrave, instead of Mordheim).

The other player told me that he understands, that i want to put all scenery on the board that i have, but i actually was disappointed by all the stuff, haha.

We found a nice way of keeping minitures on roof tops and other places where they can't stand: just put some sticky play-dough under it. Almost no stains on the scenery. Worked well for me.

As i was so much into the game, forgot to take pictures.


Just 2 Snapshots that i can show here:

What do u think? I like stuffing tables with terrain. Have allot of cover and different movement possibilites Smile Also i like the different levels with the walkways and stuff.

And i painted up my wooden crates and treasure chest castings, for the game last night, to have some scatter terrain oll over the place Smile

The pics I posted already in the Challenge:

A close Up of the better castings:

And i really need to re-paint the base-board. I can't see the ugly brown anymore haha.

EDIT: Typos...

Wow, that’s a truly incredible board. I love it! So much character, so vivid, really imaginative! Congratulations - especially to your friends who get to play on such an amazing terrain!

How is Frostgrave, by the way?

Hey Guys,

so a small update:


So i finally managed to get a casting of my litte house. Puhhh... time to make the bulidung 10%, time and effort to figure out casting: 90%

The shape of the building was too complex, next time i should make a square building or just split a more complex shape into different parts.

But here is the result of the first cast:

And after our last game we had the idea of having a "underground" level, so i wanted to make a small test-cave-thing.
The clay broke a bit while drying, but i did'nt mind:

And we had the idea of making a triangle table to have balanced 3 Player games, without having some one "sandwiched" on a square table. The long-sides are 30 inch. It basically a triangle with 3 times 60° corners, wich got cut of at the end. It was kind a challenging to remember geometry classes from school, haha.

It might be a little small for mordheim, will work for frostgrave. And maybe they wil work as platforms as well.

And the amazing entry of tagnator in the may forum challenge gave me both: courage and inspiration, to finish this tree.
As i loved the super well painted owl that he(?) put on his scenery, i made some birds as well.
And some mushrooms to pay my respect to Deafnala Smile

Obviously developed from mordheim. Its definitly worth a try. It feels more modern, and fast paced, and its still alive. Core mechaniques feel fast and simple. Easy to learn.

Scenery and NPCs are a big part of the game, so it does inspire to make specific terrain pieces. Movement rules a really dynamic, so u can build messy tables, without slowing down the game.  Rulebook is for free by now (Covid-19) at  publisher webstore.

The campaign-mode seems nice, and less frustrating. It seemed to have a lack of complexicity at first, but if, just for game speed. And there is some depth at the second view.

It was way more esay to find players, way more newbie friendly. So gooing for mordheim style with other gameplay is my way by now.

A whole bunch of good looking terrain here! Laid out as a full board it's especially grand -- & looking at all the stone platforms, I realise you've basically got a wharf or dock ready to go as well...

Hey Guys,

havn't been arround much, sorry. I actually spend most time, playing some games on my table, and having fun with the modular terrain, building different scenarios. Works quite well.

So I was'nt doint much scenery, but i started to go into digital scultping. To make some own minis, as I never got any result making 28mm minis in Greenstuff. I did a Goblin before and got it 3d printed, and by now im trying an orc. Can`t wait to finish him and see the printed mini.

Im still learning the software... and the scultping... by now Im struggeling with his pants and his hands... I guess i will hide the hands with some armor. But it's quite allot of fun to do, but also time consuming.

Looking good! I really like the tunnel, it is very atmospheric. The tree turned out great as well!

Thanks allot guys, im kind a stopped making scenery, more focusing on playing games now.

@floedebolle Das ehrt mich sehr Smile Thanks, jeah these platforms made out of some houses a highly modular gaming table. Totally different set ups every time. I can highly recommend such platform things.

I should do more bridges and archways. But by now im not fining the patience to sit down and do something carefully.
