Hey guys,

as the forum has some live and some people making scenery and painting minis and so on.

Sometimes Im in the mood to make some scenery or paint something, but im stuck with my WIP things.

So what u think about if we having something like a topic (if it works monthly) where everybody can connetct with and make a small piece of scenery or paint a mini? Nothing big, Im not into competition things. More like a Task/ Theme where everybody can drop some progress, and draw inspiration from. To have some comparability in the different styles and methods.

To drop some Ideas:

"Wyrdstone Markers" <- Something i never will do, if there is no proper announcement

"Marketplace/stash"
"Ladders 'n' stairs"
"Graveyard and Tombstones"
"Trees and how they grow"
"Some crates and Barrels"
"Trees and how they grow"
"The Well, out of the rulebook, where u can dive for shards"

As those ideas are just for scenery, there could be also a open theme and something more precise like:

"Marketstash or 'Are Skaven just Beastmen craving the local cheese?'"

"Barrels and Crates or 'How the fish came to mordheim'"

"Wyrdstonemarkers or 'U ever licked one of those glowing stones?'"




What do u think?

I would like the Idea to get a small task/ idea sometimes that would otherwise would never came up to me, or i just put it away, as i need to finish something else.

Maybe this is something where people that are just watching the forum could find a start to post something, as the high-quality long-term projects are to scary at first.

I hope my english is clear enough, im struggling sometimes, haha.


EDIT: April is coming, so it would be possible to give it a try, announcing something.

I like your initiative PJB! It would be cool to make the Forum even more alive again! But I have to be honest that I'm currently pretty busy with rounding up my study and all the spare time I have goes into building terrain that I already have planned out Crying or Very sad So not sure if I could do a proper job at this moment, but still it would be cool some day soon!

Why don't you just give it a try, PJB? Open a new topic now or maybe at the beginning of April and see what happens over the course of a month? What's the worst that can go wrong?
I'm fine with every theme you mention up there. If it's something I already had made a while ago and am proud of, it would be just an excuse to post stuff here again for a few more "aaahs" and "ooohs" Cool

yeah, maybe the time thing is a point, also for me. maybe I give it just a try to see how it goes. Maybe something small, or more possible thinks. Like very mortheimy roll 1d6 1=wytdstone marker, 2= Ladders and so on. Someone has ideas/Topics/themes to drop?

I don't have Mordheim in my project plans for this year apart from repairs and renovations to my ancient scenery, but I do have a bunch of pieces around that I could have a go at if the themes are broad enough.

If you look at "Cover and LoS blockers" as a theme rather than limiting it to "Crates and Barrels" you allow more scope. Similarly with figures "Youngbloods" would be a better choice than "Archer" or "Swordsman" etc.

Whether it gets support is a function of the current activity on the site in general which, sadly, I think is pretty low.

This is the most active this forum has been in a looong time. And a painting challenge might help keeping it this way thumbsup

I'd be totally for this. My motivation has been lacking lately so could use the push. Even if there's only 2 or 3 of us, id be more than willing to do the challenges. Just let me know what you want to do for May.

I waited to see if a formal category would be decided but in the end just went with some Cover/LOS blocking drop in terrain as I already had the bits and it is not specific to any warband or scenario. I am on barricades to replace the card cut outs from the box game at the moment.

Although what was intended as a couple of pieces just to take part has morphed into a workbench full of damn bits and a delay on the stuff I should have been painting.

Why not have a go at something similar?

Great!  Look forward to seeing what you both come up with. Hopefully a few other people will find the time to get involved.

I have amended the title of my thread in the gallery to relate to the theme build. Cover, Barricades, LoS blockers, really any small based, drop in/Scatter Mordheim inspired scenery will work, whether themed to a specific band or generic.

I opted for a thread in the Scenery Finished Gallery as I don't do WiP pictures per the "Scenery and Terrain General Discussion" section.......I have enough trouble getting acceptable phone camera shots of finished stuff.

I don't know if PJB intended something more formal, he has not been around the forum for a while.

I just finished one project so I am up for something. I already have a well, lots of crates and barrels and a tree but I could use another barricade or two. Very Happy

Any thoughts on whether we carry on with this next month? If so what theme?

Some ideas for generic topics (based purely on what I know I still need to add to my own collection):

"Wheels": Something that is, or was, on wheels or is made from some kind of  wheel.
"Trees, shrubs and 'shrooms": Mordheim style vegetation that has probably seen better days.
"Water feature": Anything from a single well to a full working dockside.
"Named Character": Figures representing the official or semi official Hired Swords and Dramatis Personae.
"Captive": Gibbet, Stocks, Cells, Prison Cart and/or occupants of the same.

Please feel free to add anything else that you think works.
