Incomplete Mordheim Well

Random Terrain Bits,Terrain
Author: Ashton Sanders

For one of my last Mordheim terrain pieces, I created a well to accompany it in a competition. The competition came down to the wire before I had everything painted, so I skipped the well, leaving it on my workbench waiting to be painted.

As I try to finish up all of my incomplete projects, I have done some painting:

Removing Paint from Plastic Models

Mordheim Models,Painting
Author: Ashton Sanders

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.

Mordheim Font

Random Bin
Author: Ashton Sanders

While in the process of redesigning my website, I have come upon the need of acquiring the Mordheim font used for the headlines in the Mordheim book.

Thanks to cianty of Border Town Burning, I have found out that the actual font used in the Mordheim Book is “Schoensperger” and runs about $42-44 USD. And if you don’t know much about Ashton Sanders, there’s no way I’m going to pay for a font =], so I owe credit to cianty yet again as he has directed me to a similar font that is actually very hard to tell the difference from the Mordheim Font. Here’s a picture of text out of the Mordheim Rule book (on top), and this Mordheim font (below):

Mordheim Font demonstration

The only real difference you can see in this image (besides being a touch on the bold side) is that the lowercase “k” is missing it’s last leg. I’m sure there’s a couple other differences, but you get the point.

I have uploaded the Mordheim Font onto my website for free download. (This font is called “Hans Fraktur” and is free to download.)

To download, click Mordheim Font.

To Install this Mordheim Font on your machine for use in word, etc., just unzip the Hans Fraktur file, and copy and paste it into your font folder (normally c:\windows\fonts\).

Enjoy,

Blog Design Update

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

I’ve been thinking about upgrading this website design of my Mordheim Blog for a long time, and I have finally begun. As you probably know, I’m a website designer/developer by trade. That normally means two things: 1) I know how to make websites and 2) I don’t have time to work on my own websites.

This summer was one heck of a crazy summer, and I haven’t been posting these last two months as much as I want. But I have finally gotten around to upgrading this Mordheim Blog Design. Everything you see on this blog was/will be created by me. I plan to add to the design whenever I create something new.

I’m far from finished at the moment, but I’ve got a great start going.

Talk soon,

Mordheim Animosity Counters

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.

Modular Mordheim Models

Modeling Tips,Mordheim Models
Author: Ashton Sanders

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,
