    Very nice project. Subscribed

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Thanks! To tell the truth, I didn't really expect any subscribers at all.

    Anyway, here are some promised pictures of different tiles and house parts. Tunnel tiles that can also be used as separate floors. One little bigger building front. Some wooden walkways. A lot of ruined corners. And then a couple ruined houses assembled in a few seconds, the last over the elevated sections you've already seen.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Thanks for the clarification and additional pictures. I must admit I thought the opposite when I first saw your thread - and that was part of what attracted me, it seemed like you'd planned the tiles similar to a way you would if you were building modular tiles with a river (so the river always connects properly) to allow for movement across the tiles and levels. Stable terrain is a biggie for me I am always bumping the table or scenery.

    Still subscribed but that is what you have motivated me to try - might not be this summer, but soon!

    I confess being guilty of the same. That's why I try to make every tile as thick as possible, and generally like good chunks of terrain, like those elevated sections. I may end up gluing them up at some point. For now, I've been satisfied enough with "binding" the smaller parts with bigger and heavier ones. Corner pieces, for example, lock the tunnel or platform tiles in place rather well.

    But I'm glad I managed to inspire a new project for you! I had the similar idea in mind for an "enchanted forest" terrain - a modular where squares of forest terrain could be turned or mixed up, and the roads, rivers and hills would all interlock. But I doubt I have time to put the idea into use any time soon, so I'm more than curious to see what you can make of it.

    I made a little side project over weekend: a little Warhammer Quest dungeon! I wanted to try a different style. Foamboard is used.

    Very little details (might be added later). Some tunnels, rooms of different sizes, stairway, end-pieces and one rubble-piece to block tunnels and entrances. Two portable elevations to the floor for statues, sargophagi, or whatnot. One doorway to experiment with.

    AndyT wanted to see more minis, and so here we have some (with parts of the terrain, of course). As this is mainly a Mordheim project, I'm also building several warbands to go with it. This is one of them: Dwarf Treasure Hunters. It includes Dwarf Lord, Engineer and Troll Slayer as Heroes, three quarrelers, two miners and two cannon crew members as henchmen - and a Grudge Pony, just for the show (and to carry the claimed treasures). I decided to put the heroes on round bases to separate them better from the henchmen. I'm no artist and very out of practice as a painter, so these lack many of the finer details, purposefully so!

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    With the risk of turning this into a dwarf warband project (and showing off my poorly painted bearded fellows), I gotta share a couple more themed pictures of a dwarven outpost and a mountain keep/mine entrance.

    Anyway, next I'll try to take some Mordheim battle shots, using more of the terrain you've already seen. Probably featuring (you guessed it) dwarfs, human mercenaries and/or skaven.

    Trap tiles for the jolly ol' Hero Quest: spear trap and falling rocks

    I got a bit sidetracked from this project, when I suddenly wanted to start trying the one I spoke about few messages back. You can check it out from the link in my signature. This "Enchanted Forest" is meant for WHQ and Hero Quest -style adventures in the forest of Loren or the like. It's also a modular, and a bit more stable than my terrains in this thread, as its tiles are built on 0,5 cm thick hard board. Anyway, that's the main reason why this front hasn't gone forward that much. But I do like these two little additions!

    those are fantastic pal.
    would love to see your take on a spiked pit trap (perspective would be tough!)

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Oh dang! I think I need to make some elevated tunnel pieces if I'm going to pull that off.

    It would need to be an actual pit.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Still no Mordheim games played, but I've still got an update for some minor stuff. Made some doors plus a tile for portable trapdoor and ladders. Plus took some Hero Quest -ish groupshots.

    Doorways of different kind. Particularly fond of this last one. It has platforms for "harmless" statues.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Got bitten by the Mordheim bug again, and I'm working with a few rather classical Mordheim buildings. Here's one, inspired from Town Crier.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    This is brilliant! Absolutely outstanding. I do really love your muted grey colour scheme, makes your brilliant models stand out. I have been drybrushing camo green onto my grey structures for a little colour variation (moss like effect). Also painting watered down Agrax Earthshade into crevices to simulate the effect of dirt build-up due to water run off.

    You could host some great games nights with your awesome collection. Inspiring stuff.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Thanks for the good word & advice, Greyshadow.

    Here's another Mordheim house, this one pretty much an eye-measured recreation of Longislandwargaming group's similar tall building. Kudos to the original builder, I had uttermost fun building this thing up and tweaking it to my liking!


    This isn't the entirely finished version. Lacking some details, earthen base and such. But you get the big picture.

    It has six floors, if ground floor and the attic are included, and rises about 35cm from the table surface.

    There are various details, like a bird atop, brickwork, broken spears, skulls, rubble, gravestones and a barricade of shields from various bits.

    Another smaller house of my own design. Two floors, not glued on to ease using the ground floor. Simple stuff. There are some bits like skull and arrow in the wall in this one, too.

    House has taken a hit of a flying rock or perhaps cannon to another wall as well.

    Your project is growing better and better! And has a pleasing appeal to the eye. Nice, that you got some more colours in it!
    The architectural design is also very creative and inspirational.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Wow, this is a peace of really good job.
    This six floor building looks great.

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    Very glad you like 'em!

    I have one larger piece underway, a fortified gatehouse of sorts, attached to a crumbled wall. It's perhaps my largest piece so far, or around the same size as the six-floor one. Rises up to 30cm or so, and is a bit more sturdy than the house. I'll post some pics soon.


    This project seems to have broken to separate parts, including pieces for underground Mordheim/Quest and ground-level Mordheim...

    Re: Self-made modular board (Mordheim, Hero Quest...)

    This is the building I'm talking about. It's another recreation of a more gifted builder's work I've seen somewhere. It makes a nice more fortified portion of my Mordheim. It is surely the most sturdy piece of my city block this far. I also made a little (ok, it's rather big) Mordheim sign. For now it just has a print of the text, but maybe I'll later paint it directly to the wood.

    This is the entrance my Mordheim. Perhaps it's an old side gate to the city itself, or a gate between city blocks.
