I bought an old Warhammer box set which came with this one little building. I had a request to scan it, so here it is.

12 years pass, and the dust falls off Mordheim!

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

Life has changed in many ways since my last Mordheim post 12 years ago. I moved from Montana to Oregon, and I’ve had two children, but I still love Mordheim! The stars have finally aligned again, and it’s time to get back into Mordheim.

I stored all my Mordheim terrain, models and supplies in the garage, with only some damage from when I pulled them out two show kids hope to play. Haha.

I started on a couple terrain pieces, painted up a few more orcs and finished creating the storage briefcase for the Orc and goblin Warband. And I’ve started testing some ways to use the CNC to create a great Mordheim board.

And one of the most exciting parts of breaking out the great game of Mordheim is sharing it with my two boys who each glued, based, primed and painted a black orc Warband!

Thanks for following.

See you in the city of the damned soon!

AFM – Away From Mordheim

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

It has been two and a half months since my last post, and I have finally come out of denial. I admit it: I’m taking a break from Mordheim. =(

I was well on my way to making my 2008 target for number of posts, and it has been my intention to get back down to my Mordheim desk and continue building. Although I didn’t think it was possible, life has gotten in the way.

What I’m trying to say is that, although it pains me to admit it, I am officially on a Mordheim break. I hope to get back on top of my other projects in the near future. Feel free to browse through my previous posts until I get back to Mordheim.

Until then,

1 Year of Blogging Mordheim!

General,Random Bin
Author: Ashton Sanders

Today, is the 1st anniversary of my Mordheim Blog (and I still don’t have a logo… tch, tch on me).

I’m so glad I was able to get back into this ridiculously entertaining game we call Mordheim, and this blog has really kept me at it. I really must admit, just making terrain, painting minis and posting on this blog is actually more fun than playing the game. =) Not that playing the game isn’t extremely entertaining; the construction, building and painting are just so rewarding.

Over the last 4 years, I have become quite a blogging fanatic, and even though this is the smallest niche of my blogs (besides my family blog) it is by far the most popular. Thank you for visiting, reading and commenting. Read the Rest of the Post >

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,

After a productive 8 months of hiding in a spare bedroom, I have finally been discovered and kicked out. The missus demanded to have her spare bedroom back. Here’s a shot of my Mordheim area for the last 8 months:

Author: Ashton Sanders

As I’ve been trying out a couple paint stripping methods myself, I am very happy to have found the following article.

Posted on 40k Articles was this article on How to Strip Paint using Simple Green. It has lots of well-taken pictures and lots of descriptions. I’ll be testing it out soon, so I’ll post again when I do.

Enjoy,

Miniature Carrying Case

General,Mordheim Construction
Author: Ashton Sanders

Mordheim Miniature Carrying CaseAs a young’un, I’ve created two carrying cases for my minis, because there was no way I was going to pay GW a ridiculous amount of money for them to make one for me. I found a box I wanted to use, cut a piece of yellow foam (like what they use for seat cushions) to fit inside the box. Cut off a half an inch slab of the top with a razor blade, and then with scissors, cut a perfectly sized hole for my miniature. When we got into Orcs, we found a plastic “briefcase” for the Orc and Goblin warband, and we did the same thing for that. Since the briefcase is a cooler miniature carrying case, I’m going to see If I can get most of my miniatures to fit in that carrying case.

This of course means that I need to create another foam insert for my new miniatures. Read the Rest of the Post >
