Mordheim Board Test

Author: Ashton Sanders

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:

Mordheim Board Thoughts

Mordheim Board,Mordheim Construction
Author: Ashton Sanders

When I first got started in Mordheim, my grandfather helped me to create my first Mordheim Board. We took a 4’x4′ section of plywood, glued a bunch of sand to it, and then painted it with a beige house paint. We chose beige cause we had it left over. When I moved to Montana, I had a friend bring it up from my parents house. unfortunately they had to cut it half to fit it their car. Here’s a small image that I dug up that will give you a good idea of what the board looked like:

Obviously, the color is all wrong, so I ended up painting it a dark “cherry brown” which unfortunately wasn’t very matte. So I’ve done a wash of dark brown to add some texture and dull down the shine.

Anyway, where I’m going with this is Read the Rest of the Post >

Painting 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.

Stripping Paint off of Metal Miniatures

Modeling Tips,Mordheim Models
Author: Ashton Sanders

When the game of Mordheim first came out, my friends and I really wanted to play the game, and really didn’t want to paint the miniatures. So as you can imagine, I have a nice collection of horribly painted miniatures. Probably the worst part about my old miniatures’ paint jobs is how thick the paint was ladled on. The paint was so thick in some places you couldn’t see the details of the miniature/model.

So I decided to strip the paint off of these miniatures. I’m going to start with my metal minis:

I am in the process of making 5 more Orcs for my Mordheim Orcs and Goblins Warband, and I figured I might as well share with you how I’ve been basing my Mordheim Miniatures. I’ve put together this very basic tutorial to create a very simple and effective base for your table-top miniatures.

Mordheim Image

I was on the Mordheim Wikipedia Page, and noticed someone added an “okay” image of Mordheim on there, so I decided to create a better one. I had a small photo shoot (with every good Mordheim model and terrain piece I had), and this was the result:

Mordheim Elevation Platform – Completed

Completed Projects,Elevation,Terrain
Author: Ashton Sanders

Here is my completed piece of elevation. I am looking at making a board out of Pink (insulation) Foam, so decided to test the foam with a simple piece of platform terrain. The idea was to create a very playable terrain piece that was very versatile, and add elevation to a Mordheim board (as Mordheim normally lacks enough elevation IMO). (You can see the Mordheim Platform WIP Thread Here.

Mordheim Terrain Elevation

I am just about done modeling this piece of terrain out of pink foam. As I’m uploading these pictures I realize a couple more things I want to do to the “destroyed” corner of the clearing.

I’m very pleased with how this piece of Mordheim Terrain is coming out. It is a very playable piece of terrain, as you can enter and exit easily from each corner. I have painted the entire thing black, so I brought it outside for some daylight. Enjoy the pics:
