I would like to introduce the first co-author on the Mordheim in Montana Blog. Although this gifted wordsmith isn’t actually located in Montana, he is a talented Mordheimer, painter and terrain maker (as you will soon see) and will make an excellent addition to this blog.
I was extremely lucky to receive the following fine terrain bits as a gift in exchange for taking pictures of them. Don’t tell my parents, but these are the sweetest gifts I’ve gotten in a long time. =)
This is a variant of the “I Work For Food” [which I DO ] theme; in this case, it’s “I paint for pics.”
But that a side, NOW TO DAZZLE YOUR COLLECTIVE BRAINS WITH WORKS OF WONDER: AN EXCLUSIVE PRESENTATION FROM THE COLLECTION OF ASHTON “THE MONTANA KID” SANDERS:
Below we find a Group shot of the Thingys I dispatched to Ashton to ply his AMAZING photograhic talents upon, AND to test his patience with NUMEROUS questions of ASTOUNDING stupidity:

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:
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.
