ok you all know who you are :)
the board is going to get going soon as i just bought some stuff today, dunno shal i keep the wip here or move it to wip when i start making it?

Hephesto
22-07-2009, 04:08 PM
Both is fine, keeping it here may be the simplest for everybody. So how big will this beauty become and do you have any specific theme yet? Choosing a town area (old market, wyrd stone crater, graveyard, park, old wardens, harbor etc.) can really help you with both building ideas and the end result.

darknight
22-07-2009, 04:15 PM
ha ha, cheers heph, well its going to be 4x4, and a town centre/market with sewers and crypts under the houses.
i have already bought some starting materials , board, clay etc, and intend on semi ruins in places with some still intact, a sort of tudor ish looking houses, stone on the first floor, wattle and daub above with expossed timbers, this isnt going to be quick its going to take some time, the board will be about 3" thick, to allow for the sewers/crypts

Starky
22-07-2009, 04:27 PM
That sounds really cool, how are you planning to do the sewers and crypt? Are they all going to be small recesses in the face of the board or full layers underneath the main level of houses?

Starky

darknight
22-07-2009, 04:32 PM
oh im going for the full monty!lol. well thats the idea, the board being 3 inch will allow for 28mm minis under a building cut into the board, obviously the house will be removed then to show the crypts, sewers i think will be cut out but incorporate the crypts like an all in one unit, im just trying to work on scale at the moment to get the houses the right sort of size

Faileas
22-07-2009, 04:52 PM
Sounds grand, I can't wait to see the WIP (and steal....I mean borrow your ideas)...that and you are aware there is a danger of myself and Aeth turning up warbands in hand at your house!!!

darknight
22-07-2009, 04:58 PM
lol, as i said before you are welcome, in fact i think you should do it sometime, marticus is coming up soon so could combine it?

Aeth
22-07-2009, 06:47 PM
Well the last time we were down there we did decide that moving to exeter would be a grand idea, now we have more excuses other than the sun and the lure of rich farmers daughters ;)

Faileas
22-07-2009, 09:20 PM
That would be cool *nod nod* could even visit my friend en-route so its not as long a trip! only thing is....we may be talking 5years buy the time Aeth paints a warband *winks at Aeth*....

darknight
23-07-2009, 08:23 AM
oky doky guys an gals...im sure we have one or two, here is the first in progress building, bottom section will be stone so lots of clay building to do yet, roof timbers and joists plus tiles as well to go on, but you can see how its going to look, i know from this one its going to take a long while to do this, but i stay up late and got up early to finish this one to this level.
its going to have a wooden floor as well, and a trap dooron the first base, then before going on the board its going on another base to raise it slightly and allow for a broken floor giving way to dirt and rubble, after the stone is on the lower floor, the top section will be stippled to make it look like wattle and daub, as will the rest of the buildings.
pic heavy at first as its the first update :)

That is nice, and I really like the idea with the double foam board for using cracks and such. Nice.

darknight
23-07-2009, 12:58 PM
thanks, its also for giving the buildings a true scale of thickness of walls, and when they crumble some sides dont match up.
i am doing all of them to a scale so its quite hard sometimes, but its working :)

Aeth

I really like the cracked walls, are those ceiling tiles?

0 gamers here and Mordheim really is a playing game. 40K and WHFB I can just focus on converting and painting, but Mordheim must be played to fully enjoy the depth of its background. In my opinion anyway.

I do have some of the old warbands around, those sisters of Sigmar make for a very nice painting challenge ;)

Marticus
23-07-2009, 01:50 PM
mmm sisters of sigmar! would have loved a warband o them!!

darknight
23-07-2009, 01:52 PM
true, got too many games myself i dont play, they are a bit like 40k witch hunters arent they, did they start the movement ?

Marticus
23-07-2009, 02:09 PM
no the sisters of sigmar are more a group of warrior nuns, they where the only ones that survied in the city normal after the meteor hit, it avoided and didnt damage their convant. the arch lector decalered them heretics though.. so not so shiny

darknight
23-07-2009, 02:11 PM

Nice work DK, looking forward to seeing how the flagstones work out.

Faileas
23-07-2009, 05:20 PM
DK thats looking awsome, I was going to try my hand this eve at making a ruin that looked something similar to that (In my head, was planning it at work) but now Ive seen yours I may not post it *laughs*.......The amount of detail and effort you put in is staggering buddy

P.S where did you get the foamboard?

darknight
23-07-2009, 05:55 PM
thanks very much mate, its not finished yet, so hope itl be ok when done.
whatever you do DONT be put off, go ahead and do it, and if i can help in anyway just ask :)
its nice to know you like it though, its got the first layer of tiles now, and an old fire place and the start of the trap door to lead to the cellar, ill post it later if i can

LAZtheinfamous
23-07-2009, 10:31 PM
That's amazing. I''m going to have to go over it detail, but how did you do the big cracks in the sides of the building? They look really natural.

darknight
24-07-2009, 07:17 AM
the cracks, i use a very fine craft knife to cut the top of the crack, if going down, at about 45 deg, then more about 60 deg at the bottom, changing as the cracks goes around. hope ya get that, if not ill do another blank piece to show you :)

dude trhats awsome!! well worthy of many a cookie! wont the clay make it fragile though?

Hephesto

Grumble, grumble, grumble..what is it with some people and the insane speed at which they produce stuff ;)

Seriously though, lovely work mate. The clay 'brickwork' and the exposed inner layer really make this piece look fantastic. Reppage time!

darknight
24-07-2009, 09:48 AM
thank you all, no the clay is stuck on very well with hot glue, then when painted itl be sealed with clear coat, testors, after a coat of envirotex(which will be my last drop, so im looking at anyone in the usa to send me some more as we cant get it over here, of couse i will pay).
it has taken about 3 days though heph, forsaking all else :)

yes i am, they are darker than they apear on the pic but not dark enough yet...more tea needed!

I demand a flagstone tutorial :)

A graveyard as well now huh? This is starting to sound like mordheim paradise.

LAZtheinfamous
24-07-2009, 05:59 PM
Given the tea reference, I'm assuming that you are staining the wood instead of painting it. Nice idea, I think I'll swipe it.

darknight
24-07-2009, 07:18 PM
ok ok, let me get ahead a bit more with this then ill do a flagstone/stone tutorial alright? :)
las, yes, all of the woos is painted bar the floor boards, i find it gives them a really good effect, a good strong tea mix, still might take around 5-10 coats, but its so easy to get it to look old and stained, and patchy.
if you wanted newer boards, lacquering afterwards gives it a lovely teak/ light oak effect

Starky
24-07-2009, 09:06 PM
That is quite amazing DK and in such a short time, I think this REP is very well deserved and I hope will not be the last for this brilliant project. Keep it up.

25-07-2009, 07:05 AM
thanks starky, cheers heph, the one thing im not happy with so far is the roof shingles, i think they are going to be temporary, till i get something else done, but it helps with perspective of roof heights and where someone could move from,it looks like his a cardboard, might give that a try :)

Most likely it is that the shingles aren't overlapping, once you try out overlapping cardboard ones I'm certain you like it a whole lott more!

darknight
27-07-2009, 09:46 AM
right the clay is dry on the first one (at last) so while i was waiting i made these, the ruined one is as it is finished, just got to put it on a base and add lods of rubble and broken wood to this one, but as you will see later on i need each one on a base so they can lift of to reveal the undercrypts/sewers of each building.
the one in the background im not sure of, so feedback would be gratefully accepted.
its not finished, still needs one more level and a roof, but it is its size and shape im not too sure of, seemed ok in the drawings i done. shall i leave as is (next level and roof remember, not as is at the moment) or cut into to buildings? i was thinking if it stays as is it would have only light damage.

thank you, but what about the floors? and you like the big one, its shape and size?

Faileas
27-07-2009, 11:13 AM
The floors I think its really upto you buddy, both ways look great (however if I had to pick I'd go with the floorboards between floors). As for the House...the top floor window seems large (shape of the house is fine, in fact amazing as always), I was just trying to think what would have a window that large! All I can think off is a shop?.

So when you coming round to my house and building mine hehe

darknight
27-07-2009, 11:17 AM
ok floorboards it is...........ah more work,lol.
yes the big window i wasnt sure of..no worries itl now be two small ones.
all the stairs and stuff is going to be made out of wood in this one as well thanks for the input guys :)

ok, just to show i have not been lazy..
the top right section is higher and is going to be a rock face, the small buildings are bothys, and will be up there and along that side of the board going down, this will add more variety to the board and will be where the sewer is.
what do you think of the new stone face on the big building?

just when you thought it was safe....
another update, small veranda type thing to the big house and another building, this one has the jog (or used to) as a storage yard/building, steps on the outside.

i have also made some town centre pieces to be put on the board, and a little change to the layout, as it goes it was a single street, but decided when laying out last night, a small village centre would look better on this board, i think it looked cool, ill try and make it up again today, kids permitting, and after the trip to town to pick up some tombys, and a whole load of warriors of chaos!!

I don't know I don't check for one day and two new fully formed building crop up...your a machine DN....also great looking stuff as always. You going to have to visit your stockists again soon?

Also can the top half of the boozer always be removed or will it be glued into place? (if its the latter, how easy is it to move models in the lower section?)

darknight
05-08-2009, 09:55 PM

got a town centre and a watering hole which will get a few posts to tie up ya horse..
but you can see its coming on now, as i said earlier all buildings have removable floors, roofing next then the great paint after texturing, i have done one level in the distance on the storage building.

right guys just thought you might like to see how the first painting is doing, the inside floor isnt really as bright as that, ceiling light not helping, but the texture is on and i must say looks good, but on the other buildings i will go for a finer base,

right guys, been a bit lax with the updates recently, mainly because of starting a tomb kings ans chaos warriors armys for fantasy, (as you might have gathered :) )
the store house is now done bar the stone work on the ground floor, well they all need that but its easier for us to do that last as its clay (well some of it )

http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb171/darknight001/mordheim/P1030231.jpg

the tavern has been done as well now, again apart from the stonework, it also has tables inside.

http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb171/darknight001/mordheim/P1030233.jpg

- Wood Elf Mordheim band (and sisters of sigmar, beastmen, possessed and skaven etc...)
- Khemri Undead Warmaster army
- Rebuild Catachans
- Special IG project (may happen after Relictors)
- Kroot merc army (with non-GW minis and classics like the full old Slann range)
- Rebuild my speed freaks
