Had to weather, dirty-up and furnish our Mordheim table.

I must be slipping. When you said "Dirty Mordheim" I immediately thought of soot, grime, grit, and rust.

Is there any hope for me?!? Can I be saved?

Ah, nothing like sittin in the back yard, skewering Skaven and gathering warpstone…life is good!

Nice table Joe!

Nicely done. Looks like you are ready for the big games!

Looks good! Nice layout, too, with the multiple levels.

What did you use for the cobblestone base?

Dirty Mordheim sounds like a cocktail recipe. Nice layout though, keep it up. The more scenery, the more fun that game becomes! Ok, not for all warbands, but my Witch Hunters loved a good rumble in the inner city.

nice setup , but far from dirty , indeed it looks a bit too flashy for ruins .
maybe you shall had some moss, moisturing and more weathering effets ( mostly on the bright blue paints ).
some grass on the pavement could be good aswell .

@ terrement : I too was thinking it was some house rules too make the game darkier or wicked be it in background fluff or option to game with .

Dirty Mordheim sounds like a cocktail recipe.

Not to start a poll or a new board, but this sounds like something for which we should take suggestions in a new thread!

Definitely looks better with the washes and shading. Thanks for posting.

Looks great! Love to come and loot there some day.

Hi, folks. Thanks for the replies.

@Terement: LOL. You know you've been a gamer too long when "dirty" means weathering. :) Welcome back.

@Sigwald: Thanks, I can sit in the backyard skewering Skaven and drinkin a Dirty Mordheim. :)

@Jovian1: Thanks, almost ready. Now to paint/repaint some Warbands.

@MWeaver: Thanks. The cobbestone base that covers most of the board is a couple of LeMax Christmas Village 18x36 inch mats I picked up cheap on e-bay. I just drybrushed them a little. There's also some finer cobblestone used as a road on top of the risers. It is made from scrapbooking specialty paper called Pigskin, which is textured to resemble a football. I just gav t a black wash.

@Dans: It does sound like a cocktail. :) Maybe with Kahlua?

@Ravachol: Thank, those are some good suggestions.

@Donrice: Thanks, it was just a couple hours work bt it did make a big difference.

@Mister X: Thanks, that would be cool.

Perhaps a Dirty Mordheim should go with a Midori or Absinthe base to show off the Warpstone effects. Or I guess any neon green liquer could be floated on top of a drink.

Thanks, Joe.

Thanks for posting that. The cobblestone mat is safely bookmarked away for future use! I have some similar stuff in road-like strips, but I'd not seen the large mat before.
