Mordheim Orcs

While waiting for various washes from Maelstrom Games, I finished up the Orc boyz on my desk. Last year I had a grand ambition to build a Warhammer Orc army (or rather another one since I already have a very old Orc force from 3rd edition). The year before I was planning (and buying) a Warhammer 40k Ork horde. I guess I am attracted to green somehow. For once, I was prudent enough to make a small “trial” first: a Mordheim Orc warband. A modest 30 models to give me a feel for the drudgery of painting green skin. I finished the skin for all 30 and then stalled very quickly. A year alter, the core boyz are finally done. Not a very successful trial…

Mordheim Bastion

A field-stone building for variety. This is a modified Octagonal Tower from Hirst Art. The floors can be separated. Like all my buildings, I sink strong magnets into the UltraCal casting material. This holds the floors together and also properly registers them each time. Click pics to enlarge.

Mordheim Bell Tower

Another fairly standard Hirst Arts design with a few bitz added from the Warhammer world. The statues are old Reiksguard models that I had lying around.

Mordheim Mad Scientist Tower

Another finished building for Mordheim. The tower is based on the “Wizard Tower” plan from Hirst Arts with suitable modifications. The doors are hinged and the top comes off to allow for gameplay in the interior. Click pics for larger images.

Mordheim Ruined Smithy

I am slowly finishing my second wave of Mordheim buildings. You can find a tutorial here.

This one is a ruined Smithy. The decorative pieces are supposed to tie it in with the “Weapon Store” on the Market. Click on the images for a larger photo.

Mordheim Smithy Upper Floor

I have been experimenting with new materials for my Mordheim buildings. Most of the tests were failures, so I settled back on tried and tested for the upper floor of the Smithy: MDF base and walls, coffee stirrer flooring, balsa wood beams, and pumice paste as texture filler.

The bottom floor is only missing debris and details (anvil, wheel barrows, etc.).

Mordheim Mad Scientist Tower WIP

I am slowly clearing terrain projects off my desk. This one is a Hirst Art tower modified to look like the lair of a crazy scientist. The model is done but needs to have greenery added (vines, grass, bushes, etc). I am considering furniture for the interior but the tower is so small that any fixed obstruction would render it useless for gameplay. The thing on the inside wall is actual tapestry (using inkjet on canvas paper). The image, suitably, is an Empire engineer fighting some kind of chaos creature.
