Your next project will be to build a Twisted Swamp Tree (Weeping Willow comes to mind - when near water they often get eaten to bits by nasty fat little grubs) :-D

Counts as Ent? Failing that, counts as Chaos Ogre with tentacles?

That could happen, although i'd make it as just scenery - although, that totally depends on what happens at the next TG competition ;)

I might knock up a display base for my Undead Warband in the meantime.

Looks like a great start! loving the idea of a display base for each warband with a scenery piece and tokens included

Thanks :) I never really intended to have the scenery as part of the display, but as I was doing the tree at the same time, it made sense to make it fit the theme - I did think about the future addition of an Ogre Merc for the warband...they are on bigger bases...and I have a spot for it already :)

My moneys on a tombstone, or a sacrifice/prisoner type marker to be used in rescue-esk missions... or a coffin for your vampire to 'sleep' in. I'm sure that could lead to some fun story driven scenarios

Well, hello again, welcome back!

After seeing (name escapes me atm, sorry) someone put up a YouTube vid about using Bolt Action Ruined Hamlet to make Mordheim scenery I thought...I can do that - but I'll scratch build all of it cos I̶'̶m̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶h̶e̶a̶p̶s̶k̶a̶t̶e̶ I like to build stuff from scratch!

So, I went online and found a decent pic of the contents of the pack and copied it onto paper (no dimensions were given so I had to make educated guesses)

Copied and cut out using 3mm plasticard

Attacked it with my newest toy (a soldering iron!)
IMAG0258.jpg


Used Wood Glue and Super glue to glue it to some mdf.
IMAG0259.jpg


Added some of those corner-side bits (1cm square of cereal card scored a third of the way along and glued on alternatively)

and again...

Its currently sat on my balcony drying off - I'll add more rubble, wooden bits and texture the base tomorrow.

C&Cs welcome as always!

The actual boxed model comes with some "wooden" bits - a floor and a bit of roof...so I have done those bits too!

I have also based the house I was making here a few pages back - you'll probably recognise it.

I'll be adding a lot more wood to this second house, floor, roof and beams on the outside.

C&Cs welcome an' all that jazz ;)

Remember a few weeks ago, I made and painted from start to (just about) finished my Mordheim Undead Warband? Well, it's exam week here in VN and I pretty much have the week off...so...

Jase-0's One Week Challenge!

Get the Orc Warband done - now they were put together by @andylowe123 a few weeks ago, but I only started tinkering yesterday along with the the toilet (which he asked for as his display base bit of scenery!)

All the Orcs and Goblins (and a few Snots) on a temporary Display base (this is the underside of my Scavvies one - just using to get the size right)

IMAG0273.jpg


The free gaps on the right are for increases to the goblin units along with possible inclusion of a Fanatic (which I have to scratch Build)

IMAG0274.jpg


The Guy right outside the Bog is the Shaman - he is holding his Big Green Glowing Club (Spell rolled already) and a Drum.

The Bottom right of the Outhouse bit is going to be a pool of some kind of...er...well, use your imagination :D

C&Cs welcome as always.
