I’m getting close and closer to finishing, but I still only have two days to complete it! Here is the progress I’ve done so far:
I have finished detailing the Mordheim Terrain, and finished painting the whole thing black:

I’ve spent the last couple days destroying my Mordheim Terrain Elevation (or Mordheim Elevation Terrain or whatever). I worked out a great schedule and I’ve been getting in a couple hours of Mordheim every day! Since this project is in the TG competition, I have put everything else aside to make sure I finish in time (1 more month).
To keep my thoughts organized, I went ahead and “declared” that the North side of this structure is above the letters, and the South side is below the letters. Here’s the pics of my progress over the last couple days:
Here’s the West Wall:
Since my last post, I’ve been slowly hacking away at my section of pink foam that I am using for a Mordheim Urban Hill, and in general for easy elevation. I have also cut some low walls and pillars for the terrain. Here is a view from the front:
I was very happy with how my first Mordheim Platform came out, and I’ve been thinking about making another one. Then Terragenesis came out with a competition for “companion pieces,” and since I haven’t entered a competition for a little while, I decided to go for it.
I decided to make a piece of terrain like my first one, only larger. Here is my first sketch of it:
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.
The platform is tall enough to Read the Rest of the Post >
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:

I have done some updates to this piece of elevation, and here is what I have now:

I acquired a small piece of pink foam from a neighbor, and decided to try out some techniques with it before I buy a 4×8 sheet to create my board with. For this small project, I decided to just create a simple and playable Mordheim LOS (Line Of Sight) Blocker. This can be used as elevation for a building or leave empty to have a small elevated clearing.
All etchings on this piece were done with a pen, and every pen line you see is a small indentation into the foam.
The steps were created by Read the Rest of the Post >
I got in a new computer the other day from Dell, and it came surrounded by two large sections of packing foam. Each section is 21″x18″x3.5″ and almost completely flat on 5 sides. These will act as a perfect raised part of Mordheim, and when placed on the (48″x48″) battlefield, they will take up less than 1/4th of the playing area.
(A couple Orcs and Goblins and my Collapsed Mordheim Tower for Scale)
These are perfect because they don’t take up too much of the playing field, but can add some great elevation to a Mordheim board. My plan is to cut four sets of stairs into each section of foam so any warband will be able to access the “high road”, and make the edges look like they were built with bricks and large stones. I will be texturing the top section, and then leaving it empty so each new battle can have different Mordheim buildings/terrain on it.
Hopefully more on this project soon,
