The gaming room nears completion and the first campaign it will be used for will be season 2 of our mordheim campaign.
I’ve never had this kind of space before so I plan to take full advantage.
I’m going to be making a set of 6 tiles that can be arranged to make various 4x4 and 6x4 Mordheim set ups. Two of the tiles will incorporate my warhammer mighty fortress kit, which I’ve needed an excuse to use for something properly for some time, so that games can be played at the edge of the city.
Now here’s where my big plan comes in. I’m being gifted an AOS realm of battle board by a mate very soon. The two tiles which end with castle walls will be built up to the same height as a realm of battle board so that they can be placed next to those boards and serve as a castle wall in a warhammer siege scenario.
My idea is to have the 6 realm of battle tiles and the 6 home made tiles and be able to make a battlefield, a multi level skirmish board and a siege board using them.
Another aim of this mordheim board is to try to keep it as setting agnostic as possible. I will avoid having anything overtly fantasy themed stuck to those 4 tiles. ( the castle ones can have a bit more of that). That way by changing the scenery upon it, I can make a 40k city board or a necromunda board as well. When it comes to my next nexromunda campaign I could maybe add a couple of tiles with some tech stuff that match these tiles to help sell this. So I’m trying to go for an aesthetic that could be carved rock or concrete depending on the setting.
Again trying to maximise the use of these boards.
Here are the first 6 tiles with designs sketched out:
Now I’ve done a paint test piece using the foam I’m planning on using the board. My dad printed me some brickwork and tile stampers to add a texture to these things.
I protected the foam from spray paint using PVA but unfortunately didn’t protect it well enough. So parts melted. It’s only a paint test so I decided to roll with it and make some infected nurgly looking puddles in the melted places.
