Mordheim - Ruined Hamlet
#1
After watching a YT vid of someone using Bolt-Action models to make scenery for Mordheim, I decided that I will try and do similar. Rather than buying the model sets, I decided to scratch build them myself.

First, looked online for a decent pic of the contents and copied on A4 paper - no measurements were given, so I had to make educated guesses.

Next, cut out some of the parts using 3mm plasticard.

I then used a soldering iron to 'draw' on/in the details.

Glued together using the PVA (Wood Glue actually) + Superglue method and put it on a 6" x 4" bit of MDF (from an old calendar!)

The side/Corner bits (does anyone know the official name for these?) are just 1cm squares of cereal packet card and then folded 1/3 the way along and glued on alternatively.

I'll be adding texture to the base and the wooden bits (a little roof and floor) along with some rubble later.

C&Cs welcome and appreciated!

Interesting idea, using a soldering iron to melt the pattern in there. Nicely done. Smile

For the corner stones (which are not cornerstones), I believe the word you are looking for is Quoins. Smile

That is a good design. The straight edges on the upper part are where the roof goes? I like the rounded edges where the damage is. That is the Mordh-mish style as I recall from their die-cut card buildings.

Yes, I'll be adding some burned wooden beams for a roof (or whats left of it) I'll add extra hacks into it if it still looks too straight.

Trollmeat spotted the correct term: quoins. What I meant by the rounded edges is that the Mordheim buildings didn't exactly burn, nor did they get bomblasted, it was all Comet / Warpstone / Magic / Handwave and it made an odd sort of damage. At least that describes the original buildings from the boxed set. They don't look burned. I think you have matched it well.

It does depend on what other structures you wish to match for style of damage.

Cool build! It is allways cool to see the use of new (to me anyway) materials and the associated techniques. I'm guessing the 3 mm plasticard is more sturdy than the foamboard I usually work with, but the fumes must be annoying?

Yeah, you have to be careful with the fumes - luckily I live in a 9th floor apartment and always have my balcony doors and kitchen door open (opposite ends of apartment) and always have a breeze coming through.

I've added some tissue paper to the 'blank' areas - those places that didn't have any bricks to give the appearance of some kind of outer layer over the bricks.

I've also added sand to the base - I'll be adding more bits of rubble over the top of the sand.

Pics coming later.

With sand and card added to the base.

That tissue paper looks great. It's got a great texture contrast against the brick work. Keep it up!

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

The wooden parts were thin wooden Tongue Depressors (the kind a doctor would use) and sliced into smaller sections - glued using wood glue.

That little 'thing' in the corner was just some small offcuts of wood that I have put together as a semi-ruined Barrel - not sure if it looks ok or not yet, but it's extra clutter Smile

I also started on a similarly ruined building a few months ago - but got shelved due to time, I have resurrected it - based the same as the first one.

This second building will get a partial roof as well as some flooring. The outside is already tissue papered and will have extra wooden beams on it.
