Very nice indeed! My one bit of advice for the future is to use some "washes" in the future, to break up the monotone color on the long stretches of wall floor (not to mention, give it that gloomy, run-down look). Don't waste your money on GW washes.. just dip your brush (with black paint on it) in your paint cup a few times, test the intensity on the side of the cup, and slap it on. With a "distill as you go" wash, you can vary the strength in seconds, making it extra thick for the shadowy corners, and lighter for the sunnier spots (not that Mordheim HAS many sunny spots.) Fastest layer of paint you'll ever apply, though it takes 2x as long to dry. Remember, uneven is good: it's realistic.

YIKES!!!

Cool table man! How you did the cobblestone? And when you plan to do a more 40kish table? WOW! Excellent work man... EXCELLENT!

Awesome looking, man!

Some questions:

1) How did you do the bricks and paint thing on pics 5, 6, and 7? Foamcore + cardstock?
2) This ramp and high road, and cobblestone street is pink foam, right? (please say no!)
3) All the brickwork below the houses? Foamcore?
4) the wood panels and floors are just popsicle sticks, right?

I ask since in my remote country we don't have much in the ways of hobby supplies, so I have to emulate with simpler stuff!

OH! OH! And those figs are from Hero Quest, right?
God dammit I LOVE this game!

These are all still a work in progress, but at a stage where i deem them "playable"

Styro: Once i get about 4 times this much cobblestone platforms done at a playable level (3 shades of gray drybrush) I will go back and hit them all with green and brown washes to break up the monotony.

dwi: The wood is a mixture of Balsa wood, and (*)bucks coffee stirrers. The former is cheap and the later is free!

Mordheimer: The cobblestones are 2" thick pink insulation foam, distressed with a rock, then melted with a soldering iron. I posted more about them on TBMF.

I will not be making industrial (Necro/DeathSquad) terrain for the foreseeable future. To much time making 1/4 of a Mordheim table to switch gear now! There are plenty of hobby stores around with way to much WH40k (aka, GW's cash cow) that i can exploit!

Librarian:

1) Exactly, cut a break-point for the "plaster" and peel the card away; draw bricks on with pen. I must point out that i did not make that particular building.

2) Yes indeed! This is why it has taken me a year to get this much terrain done, not that it takes incredible long, but the procrastination caused by thinking about all that carving!

3) Pink foam.

4) wood panels are sheets of balsa wood, scored to look like separate planks, brushed with a wire brush. Popsicle sticks are to hard to work with, annoying to have to clip curved ends from, and fiddly to piece together. Actually if you look in picture 1, the 3 story building in the right foreground has just such a floor, it was not fun!

This looks fantastic!!!
Playable is an undersatement! I'd love to play that table!
I just worry how bad my wargang would look when surrounded by such greatness!

Congratulations Pathfinder. Excellent work!

Good with a camera too!
