Mordheim Board Test

To follow up on my Mordheim Board Thoughts with some actual terrain:

I have a spare piece of pink foam lying around and decided to make another (larger) platform out of it, but before I do that, I have used the underside as a test surface so I can test out my different board ideas and throw away the ones that are horrible. Pictures are better that words, so here you go:

For fun, I went ahead and did something silly with my round stones. You’ve probably noticed that right below the “Round Stones” title, the stones look kind of weird. Put your mouse over this image to see what it is:

Hahaha… yea… that’s one of the things I decided to test out (and throw away). But just about everything else is awesome. I think a board would look great with all these random details. I would still be able to place my buildings wherever I want to, and the different textures would add a lot of depth and detail to the board.

What do you think?

    I don’t think you should throw out the ‘writing things into the board’ idea – that’s AWESOME! And I like the way it all looks. They layout’s cool and it all melds together nicely.

    Impressive! It’ll turn out to a good table-top.

    Hahaha. Really? You like it? I just think it makes the cobblestones look horrible/crowded. If you step back and look at the two different sections of cobble stones, the one without the words looks great, and the other….

    I’ll paint it up and see what it looks like.

    I agree. The hidden message is awsome. It may make it a bit wierd (it helps make them look again) but finding that hidden message would be cool.

    IMO, it’s a keeper. Just for the secret wow factor.

    Thanks Alfblack.

    So far, I’m the only one that doesn’t like it. lol I posted a poll at TerraGenesis, and we’ll see how it goes… I have a feeling I’ll be doing it though. I think I’m going to do one “Ashton” and one “Mordheim” and maybe some other secret ones 😉
