Mordheim Building Materials

Mordheim Buildings,Mordheim Construction

Obviously, the most common building material used to build Mordheim, like most fantasy worlds, is wood. I spent yesterday looking for some ways to create good Mordheim-sized wood for building construction.

I came up with some very rugged wood chips by cutting slivers off of an old, beaten-up 2×4(x8). I cut them to many different thicknesses. some were 2 Mordheim inches thick, but most were like 8-12 inches thick.

Hatchet Cutting Mordheim Wood

Obviously these “slivers” will still need to be cut again to make them thin. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but these pieces of wood are very ruff, and will look great dry-brushed.

I also bought a box of 1000 Popsicle sticks. After cutting off the rounded edges of a Popsicle stick, it ends up being approximately 2×12 Mordheim inches, which is perfect for construction. I have also used these Popsicle sticks for framing my first building. I should finish the base coat today, and I’ll have pictures tomorrow.

I have an illusion of grandeur of actually creating an entire building like a normal wood-framed house.
