just wonderinng what mordheim players on the EFF used as mordheim terrain. Personally i think the cardboard buildings are a bit poor.

I was thinking about making some ruined houses etc aswell as a few intact buildings and small terrain features. Anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this and what materials to use to build it?

balsa wood is very cheap and easily cut and formed. handy for half timbered buildings (amongst other things). walls can be made from card/foam/mount board.

For my group's Mordheim terrain we use a combination of home made stuff, HG Walls products, Armorcast, OLD Forge World, and Hudson & Allen.

All good stuff, most of it readily available online (and originating from the UK).

I'll have to post pics some day, but here's a link to Hudson & Allen retail provider, Michigan Toy Soldier:

Good Luck.

The red and blue making warhammer scenery books are absolutely great, I didn't have a clue how to make stuff before I read them but they are full of great ideas and projects ranging from 15 minute things to stuff that will keep you busy for weeks. I've loaned out all my mordheim scenery but when I get it back I'll post some pics, I find it easier to make mordheim stuff than 40k era stuff but the books cover both. Trust me they're a great buy and you'll never throw anything away ever again without thinking "what can I turn that into?"

If you want a quick start though get some das modelling clay it sets without baking and make bricks out it and put them together to make walls..then you could add balsa wood rafters..balsa doors, anything you want really. It's a great modelling material and pretty cheap too. You can't really go wrong because you're just putting on brick on top of another like lego till you have what you want, and because they are real little bricks (or big ones) it looks surprisingly real. And if you do balls it up now and again you can just leave it as a ruin and claim that was the plan all along.

That's how I got started anyway and now I'm a complete scenery addict.

We use some of the old rubbish card stuff, and some of the 40k buildings set. The lampposts look a bit tech, but apart from that it works just fine. My whole warband once walked into my giant cathedral expecting to fight 3 other bands for control, and it caught fire and collapsed. A S2 hit on everyone! Oh noes! Yeah, eleven were taken out of action, one stunned, two left standing. And after all that, only one death and I came out top of the four bands once all the after-battle jazz was done. That was a funny game. But that's a story I've told here before. You didn't have to read it.
