I posted some pics of our new Mordheim table on my blog. Mostly scratchbuilt by me or a couple of my sons. Here's a link if you're interested.

Excellent! it just so happens I've been working on my 2x4ft mordheim board this weekend so this is good inspiration.

Nice and inspiring. Myself, I'm finishing up some pieces for my STALKER table. This reminds me to get back at it.

Nice! Watch out, though, I think I saw some Skaven skulking around in some of those ruins.

Nice start. But if you are going to Mordheim I would suggest "darkening" the whole thing up a lot. First I would get rid of the "green" road or grass or whatever that is. Mordheim is an urban environment and broken cobbles would be more in theme. I would also suggest putting a lot of "black wash" on all the buildings, maybe even letting it run.

Maybe also use some black paint for scorch marks on the buildings.

Hi, everyone. Thanks for the replies.

@jpattern2: You're right, this place is gonna be lousy with rats. I've got a box of NightRunners just rarin to get some Wyrdcheese :)

@deanoware: Thanks. I do intend to do a lot more detailing to the buildings to dirty them up some more. Black washes sound like just the ticket and I've got some Doc O'Brien's Weathering Powders I want to try out. I am getting rid of that green EV foam, it was just there as a placeholder for the canals I'm starting on tonight.

@Inari7: Thanks. I'll try that. I saw some builds where all of the blown-out walls had that effect. It looked very good.

Wow, that's impressive!

Great stuff, I wish we were neighbors.

Yes, great pieces adding up to a fun table. I agree if you are taking the effort to further weather the buildings that they will look even better.

One tip I have is to use some resin or thick layers of varnish to make puddles on the roads / pavements

Do not forget the scatter scenery – anything from little piles of bricks / tiles through to sacks and barrels.

Enjoy the games – the builds look great!

Hi folks. Thanks for the kind remarks. I've got a little update on the table. Finished the canal and some bridges. Copied the water effects from Mason on LAF in his Krappefortt thread. Here's a link to my effort.

Haven't gotten around to dirtying up the buildings, yet, but that is in the pipeline.

Nice water effect. I had to stop folowing Masons LAF thread as every time I went back to my own efforts they just looked a little ….pants.

Luckyjoe Inactive Member16 Aug 2011 7:17 a.m. PST

@Prince Rupert: LOL, I know what you mean.

Little Big Wars Inactive Member16 Aug 2011 11:55 p.m. PST

Very attractive layout. Mordheim keeps calling to me, but I think I'll have to do it in 15mm instead…

How did you get that cobblestone appearance on the vinyl floor tiles?

Luckyjoe Inactive Member17 Aug 2011 7:10 p.m. PST

@Little Big Wars: That's one of the things I want to do, too. 15mm Mordheim is cool! Here's a link where Dis is doing just that. :)

I love his stuff, especially his 15mm Mordheimer sculpts.

@Baconfat: I was lazy. The cobblestone is actually a couple of LeMax Christmas Village Cobblestone mats I drybrushed. I used the vinyl floor tiles to base the buildings and to base the canal sections.
