Well just a small update Smile I've been pretty busy with building some more hills, but next to that I've been working on another building for our table! I just completed building it today and it will be painted soon! Smile Thought it would be nice to share it with you guys, so here it is!

I really wanted to add some of the awkward architecture the Empire tends to have, so that's why I added that small tower next to the building Smile. I just found out that I forgot to make an entrance to it.. I guess I would have been an excellent architect in the Empire, haha... scratch It probably just shows off wealth instead of having a proper function lol!

Well untill next time! Hope to have some more things done soon! Smile

That is an excellent philosophy when making buildings for Mordheim.

Nice one. Small in footprint but big in character, ideal for a Mordheim game.

Thanks everyone Smile Glad you liked it! I just finished painting it and I'm pretty pleased how it turned out. I tried to add some fire damage on it and some more different tones of grey to add a bit of variety into it Smile Just need to base it and put some varnish on it and it will be ready for the table!

Hey all! I finished another Hill today and tried to blend in some green turf with the brown sand. I think it looks nice, as it makes the hill a little less bland.

Building the Grand Barony of Hochland - Terrain log by Tag. - Page 2 Hill_310

I think I will be going for this look from now on! Smile Off to build some more hills and add some trees, as the Grand Barony of Hochland is described as a 'Dense forested land', haha!

I like the blended edges Tagnator; it looks very natural but still easy to place minis on.

Thanks everybody, I'm glad you all like it Smile ! During the past few days I've been busy with building some forest terrain to add to the collection Smile

I'm quite happy how they turned out, especially the basing! The MDF didn't warp alot so that was great Smile ! Not really sure about the trees tho... Might spray paint them in another green colour as I'm not really fond of the mint green Flock look yet.. They're actually the cheap Ziterdes trees but they've changed the flocking from what it used to be. 2 years ago they had a more Olive / Army green tint without the different tones of green in them, so I was actually expecting that when I ordered them a while ago...

Also as requested, a picture of all the terrain togheter so far! Smile I don't have a proper board yet so I had to place them on the couch to make it all fit in a picture, haha!

Will be building some more scatter pieces soon! I have to find some storage room tho scratch lol!

Glad you like it Deafnala Smile Took some work, but it's cool to see everything coming togheter!

I tried painting the trees today and I'm really happy how they turned out! I used an 'Deep Olive Green' spray can from Amsterdam Talens and I love the way the trees look now!

A comparison: On the left the newly painted tree and on the right how they used to be.

Building the Grand Barony of Hochland - Terrain log by Tag. - Page 2 Trees_15

A close up of the flocking how it used to be, as you might see, the bristles are showing quite a bit here and there and there are different tones of green flocking.

I wasn't that happy with the trees how they were, as the bristles were showing trough and I didn't like the colour overall. So now I have to spray paint the rest of them lol! But then I will have trees I like, which is pretty nice afterall Smile

The trees look good. You have greater contrast & a more pleasant color now that you have painted them. thumbsup

That's a nice looking northern village. It could be useful in all sorts of settings not just Mordheim. The new colour of the trees is a big improvement.

Thanks guys! Smile I'm happy to hear you guys also think the trees are better this way! I was really having doubts yesterday if I liked them or not how they were. I mean they're really cheap, it's like 11,- euros for 10 trees so I couldn't be too critic about it.. yet I didn't really like them how they were. I might look into making my own trees some day tho, but this speeds things up for now so we can start after all the lockdowns are over Smile

Ooh, a damn fine line up of scenery there. Hochland will soon be realised!

The trees look good, especially with that bit of paint fitting them more to the tone of the other terrain. Given how fiddly trees can be to make, I wouldn't be shy about using pre-made ones, especially when they look that good based up. Oh, & remember you don't need too many trees to fill a board -- even when it's 'dense forest', a few trees make a board look very busy! The pines you're using are probably actually the best thing for gaming boards; narrow at the top, wide at the bottom, provide cover & fill a board but easy to reach past to handle models.

Anyway, great work all over!

There I am again with some more (small) pieces of terrain for our board! Made some fields and some piles of logs as scatter pieces Smile I have to apologize, the photo's aren't that great, having some problems with the lightning at the moment, but I wanted to share them with you all Smile
