To continue with progressing on my incomplete projects, I have this little Mordheim Planter, if you can call it that.
I’ve been bothered about the lack of dead trees and plants in Mordheim. You can’t deny that there must have been trees and bushes in Mordheim before the comit hit, why have I never seen any burnt tree stumps in the rubble of Mordheim? I don’t really know, but I’m determined to create a tree for Mordheim; or at least the remains of one. So I started trying to think of something that would allow me to create this. I ended up creating a “planter” for some tree stumps.
So my first experiment with a Mordheim Tree didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped, so I decided to do some modifications. I have trimmed down the trees to a much more reasonable height. I will definitely have to add something to the limbs as they are very empty. I have been thinking about hanging a skeleton in a noose, or maybe some sort of creature’s nest.
You can also see in this picture that I created a small bush growing at the base of the trees. I found a plant with small pointy leaves, and dried it. Once the leaves were totally dried, I pulled them off, and stuck them together into a pile of Elmer’s glue. As the leaves got thicker, it started to look more and more like a yucca/fern type plant. Definitely something created by the wyrdstone.
Who knows how the Mordheim tree will actually turn out?
Definitely not me
On most Mordheim Tables, there are very few trees. Actually, I think I’ve only seen one Mordheim Table that had a tree, and it was approximately 3 inches tall.
I realize these trees are Redwood-size, and following the story line of Mordheim, there really is no way they could have survived the impact of a two-tailed comet. “So What?” This is my first one, so I’m testing it out.
I found a tumble weed that has a cool, thick trunk, and it looks like a great miniature tree. Here are the pictures of my first set of Mordheim Trees:
I cut three perfectly sized holes in this small piece of cardboard, and stuck in the trunks of the three tumble weeds. I placed this normal cardboard onto a thin piece of thick board and glued it with super glue and Elmer’s Glue. I used the Elmer’s to smooth out the edges of the cardboard.
I used bailing twine (orange string) to tie the tops of the trees together to keep them in place while I glued the branches that touched to stabilize it.
Yes, I realize they are FREAKING HUGE.
