Warboss Kurgan from Flame On (and Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum) created the most ingenious Halloween Orcs:
My brother and I got into Mordheim when it came out in 1999. As teenagers, we had very little affinity for a good paint job. We just wanted to get our minis on the table and kick the trash out of eachother. We had a blast, and Mordheim became a very fond memory for the both of us (and friends, too).
But because of how little we cared about our paint job, I know cringed whenever I look at the paint jobs on my old minis. Thanks to Tom, and other painting sources across the internet, I’ve slowly been learning how to paint well.
So now that I’m ready to paint some awesome Mordheim Miniatures, I have decided to remove the paint from a bunch of my plastic models and metal models. I have already tried Tom‘s Brake fluid, and it works fine except for how toxic it is.
I mentioned earlier how I found a great article on removing paint with simple green. So I grabbed a pile of my plastic and metal models with bad paint jobs, one bottle of Simple Green and 1 (clean) cottage cheese container.
Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum had their first “Golden Tom” Painting Competition, which got me off my lazy ars and got me to paint another Mordheim Orc Big Un.
Orcs and Goblins in the game of Mordheim (as well as Warhammer) love to fight so much that they can easily get in a fight with each other in the middle of a game. In Mordheim, this is called Animosity. Any orc or goblin henchman afflicted by animosity for a round can not do anything else for that round. Sometimes it is hard to remember which angry orc or goblin can’t do anything for the rest of the turn, so I created these counters to help me remember.
Wow! Where has the summer gone? I am ashamed at how little I got done this summer on my Mordheim. =/
Anyway, I did manage to get some progress done on my Animosity Counters for my Orc Warband:
If you’ve read many of my posts, you’ll realize that I love making things for Mordheim that I will never need to remake. That is the biggest reasons why I don’t put bases on terrain or buildings. I know that no matter what board I make later, my buildings will fit on it gorgeously!
Yesterday, I read a post by Pathfinder Dubstyles about How to Magnatize Mordheim Miniatures to make swappable arms, weapons and even heads! This way, you don’t have to make another whole miniature when you buy him a new weapon!
Pathfinder Dubstyles has created an amazing tutorial, and I hope to follow it very soon.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did,
I have just under a month left in the 1-inch base competition, and I’ve finally put aside a small amount of time for my entry. (I was extremely busy last month… right guys…?) First, the pictures, then I’ll explain what my entry is for.
In my cruising through random Mordheim pictures, I saw a picture of some custom(?) wyrdstone counters that seemed to be made out of plastic. They just looked like large green rocks, and I remembered that I had started putting together some wyrdstone counters when I was playing the game (in 2000?). Being a packrack, I still had a couple zip lock bags in my Mordheim Box! So, I pulled them out, and put together these sweet Wyrdstone Counters:

Forget the Dog, beware of the Squigs!
Now that I’ve removed the paint from my metal Squig yesterday, he needed some new paint today. Since I am going with an orange theme for my Mordheim Orc and Goblin Warband, my cave squigs are going to be orange.
First thing to check is to make sure there are no mold lines still on the model. (I never knew to check for these on metal models, so I started painting my first coat before I realized they were there) I took a razor blade and trimmed them back the best I could.
