First Piece of Mordheim Elevation

Author: Ashton Sanders

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.

Making Picture Frames

Random Terrain Bits
Author: Ashton Sanders

As I’ve been trying to get more and more detailed with my Mordheim terrain, I have found myself trying to create what would equate to a .5″ x 2″ plank of wood, which in real life is a cm wide and a couple millimeters thick. I’ve tried carving down a larger piece of wood, but I could never get the sides to be straight. Then I had an epiphany. The answer was in front of me the entire time.

it’s really quite simple. Take a Popsicle stick and a sharp razor blade or Exacto knife, and cut a thin silver off the side of the stick.

Mordheim Stone Wall v2.0

Author: Ashton Sanders

It’s been almost a week since I created Mordheim Stone Wall v1.0, and I have finally gotten around to creating the next version. (Thank you for all your ideas.)

Here’s what I did:

First I grabbed the worst piece of Styrofoam I could find to become my test piece for my Mordheim Stone Wall v2.0. It just happened to be a little over 3.5″ tall, so it was a perfect height. (Here’s a picture with my newly-painted Orc Archer.)

Mordheim Modular Fence – Part 2

Author: Ashton Sanders

I spent a little more time on my Mordheim terrain bits and created two more modular fences. I created these two the exact same way I made the last ones, except I haven’t added any pink foam to them. I’m going to make a couple more fences, and then add details to all of them.

I did however, fortify one of these new modular terrain fences. The idea is that someone wanted to create a good defense from ranged attackers, so they nailed a bunch of spare boards to this section of fence:

Mordheim Modular Fence

Author: Ashton Sanders

Today, I started on a couple small sections of modular fences. My original purpose for creating these small bits of fence is to show that you don’t have to have a base on your small bits of terrain. These sections of fence will be pretty destroyed, and then re-fortified in sections.

Mordheim Horse Cart

Here is another Popsicle stick project I thought up. I don’t really know where I’m going to do with it, but I wanted to make a Mordheim horse cart. I had a picture of a horse cart in my mind that I wanted to recreate at 28mm scale, and I think I did a pretty good job.

Mordheim Horse Cart

This entire cart is made from Popsicle sticks, except for the axle which is made from a thick, tough weed stem from my yard. I haven’t attached the wheels yet, but I want to find a way to make them able to roll. So, if I wanted to, I could actually roll the cart around. Why not?

(Note: Please ignore the paint job on that Mordheim Skaven, it’s from a much younger, rash me.)

More to Come,

Best place to eat in Mordheim

Author: Ashton Sanders

Everyone knows that most human and Skaven warbands never sleep within the walls of Mordheim, the City of the Damned. But, where do they eat lunch? It has been an unanswered question until now! The best place to eat in Mordheim is at my tables:

Mordheim Tables

And if you’re ever interrupted by some rival warband, you can throw the table on it’s end and you have instant protection from missile weapons.

These tables are built out of a piece of bark I found in my yard. I’ll probably end up making it a permanent part of a building setup.
