At long last a project that I started buying bits for (and painted a single mini for…) many years ago has finally got off the ground. Hopefully by Christmas I will have enough buildings together to have a decent game. I am starting with some scratchbuilt items but as I get close to the end of the year I am sure I will be building some pre-fab stuff.

Looks great! I'm going to hold you to that Christmas promise. :)

Dave Jackson03 Oct 2016 3:51 p.m. PST

Like Mordheim, therefore I shall follow

Thanks for your interest guys. I have yet to play a game but I do look forward to it.

I'm going to hold you to that Christmas promise. :)

Wait!? No it's not a promise!!!

A WIP update. Poor initial planing has been responsible for delays in this construction project. An early WIP shot:

The building at it's current stage. I just have to add some roof bits then the final painting stages and a base.

A few more pics on my Blog.

Aside from my Mordheim blog (whihc will finally get an upodate this week) I also have a Historical Blog; mostly ECW as well as some medieval Andalusian and- eventually- some Saga.

Long over due update, In fact these WIP pictures are so old, these buildings have been finished and another couple started. However, camera issues+ real Life =long delay…

Codsticker06 Feb 2017 3:44 p.m. PST

I added lots more picture; this time of finished work (everything I have done in the last 3 months):

That is some great looking terrain.


Codsticker14 Mar 2017 7:58 p.m. PST

Thank you Xintao.

I took a break from Terrain building to paint up a Warband: Skaven.

Your terrain work is outstanding!

A wee update on my blog…

Very nice!!!

Codsticker05 May 2017 10:00 p.m. PST

Thanks. I am picking away (it's taking a long time) at some more Bolt Action buildings.

Codsticker09 May 2017 10:17 p.m. PST

The rest of my Bolt Action ruined hamlet is finished:

I have been working on another building for my Kodsticklerburg project. This one a combination of bought bits, foam core and balsa wood.

More pictures on my blog.

Codsticker16 Jun 2017 7:14 p.m. PST

I finished painting the above building. Although not 100% pleased with the wood, I am still very happy with it.

Another building underway. All built …

Currently on the painting table.

An inspiration for us all… sadly.. I have so many figures to paint, I always resort to the pre-fab stuff!!!

You are to be commended, these are beautiful!

Codsticker08 Aug 2017 10:44 p.m. PST

Thank you for your kind words.

Sadly, building my Mordheim table comes at the expense of hundreds of figures remaining unpainted.

But I really like making terrain so at this point I am happy to ignore them (I just have to resist buying more).

Codsticker20 Aug 2017 9:23 a.m. PST

Finally… the two buildings are based. Several more pictures on my blog.

EvilBen Supporting Member of TMP24 Aug 2017 1:48 p.m. PST

Somehow I've missed all your previous posts. This is great work!

Codsticker26 Aug 2017 9:15 p.m. PST

Thank you EvilBen. This project is nearly done. Just the the table to do and a couple of smaller buildings.

Codsticker12 Sep 2017 7:40 a.m. PST

I have started work on the table…

More WIP pictures on my blog.

Oiler7213 Sep 2017 6:06 a.m. PST

This has been great to watch! Your buildings have been outstanding, I cannot wait to see your progress with the table. Thanks for posting, your work is very inspirational…


Codsticker16 Sep 2017 6:27 p.m. PST

Thank you Oiler72- I appreciate the compliment.

Codsticker18 Sep 2017 12:34 p.m. PST

Not to much further to go on the table. I spent just about all day working on it yesterday.

As usual, more pictures on my blog.

Capt Flash18 Sep 2017 2:10 p.m. PST

Inspiring blog! Thanks for sharing.

Codsticker23 Sep 2017 5:23 p.m. PST

Thank you Capt Flash. I hope to get this table all tidied up by the end of the weekend. I am currently flocking it and adding dead shrubbery.

Codsticker24 Sep 2017 11:31 a.m. PST

Weekend update… The outskirts are finished. Static grass, dead shrubs and leaves added.

More pictures on my blog.

Codsticker08 Oct 2017 12:55 p.m. PST

Blog update…

I wanted a border of some sort between the paved area and the pasture land. I had ordered a stone wall from Fenris but I guess they had to cast it up as it didn;t get shipped until a couple of weeks after I placed the order. So… I madre a hedge:

This table's inaugural run through will be this Saturday. Ideally i would have like a couple more buildings but I definitely needed a bridge so that is what got made.

More pictures on my blog.

markdienekes17 Oct 2017 8:59 a.m. PST

Wow, great stuff, wish I had your skill at it!

Codsticker18 Oct 2017 7:05 p.m. PST

Thank you Mark. As you can see by the first post, this project has been just over a year with very little hobby time spared for other projects. The first game is this Saturday; I will have lots of 'action' shots up by Monday.
