Starting to build with some simple squares for where the towers will come and putting down the first layer of stones. And yes... they are all cut by hand.

I undercoated the bottem part already to make it easyer to paint. So I painted the bottem part already to prevent from getting stuck in hard to reach places later on. nononono the keep is far from done.

Undercoated chaos black, drybrushed (overbrushed) with codex/fortress grey.

What are they cut out of? looks great so keep up the good work

24-06-2009, 16:29
Thanks :) they are cut out of regular foam used for RL houses. not modelling foam. they crumble abit when you cut them and thats what gives the detailed effect when painted :D

25-06-2009, 08:31
Now that is seriously cool, awesome job :) Can't wait to see more!

03-07-2009, 06:51
thanks were currently experimenting with different foam but il get to it asap ^^

03-07-2009, 12:29
Now that's a pretty cool building:) The only thing to fear is that if it's crumbling now it may not last too many games

13-07-2009, 10:55
Yes we noticed when you build in this style that after X amount of games the buildings start wearing down, thats why we are currently looking at different kinds of foam :) although the keep still doesnt have much damage after about 50 games I can still recommend it ^^

Whooaaaah, that is a great addition to any skirmish/RPG system you play. Looks really nice!!

And now, I have, of course, got to ask you where you're from! If you happen to be from around the area of Zaandam, drop me a line (or simply click on that obnoxious centered link in my sig), because we have quite a thriving Mordheim group in our club, and we're always looking for more people to pounce on the battlefield! :D

Good luck, keep up, and I hope to hear from you soon.

If you live near Eindhoven you must be familiar with the Cowslayers, Eindhovens local gaming club. I visited a few tournaments there recently...

By the way, your keep looks awesome! Might have to steal your idea...

17-07-2009, 20:45
tbh never heard of them :P I mainly play with just friends. My new inn is looking pretty well allrdy. il post some pics soon! It's oke to use the idea :)
