Last sunday I decided to fix some scenery instead of playing a game. A few years ago, Games workshop produced a game called Mordheim which was VERY popular at our club, they had a range of card terrain (as was the norm with GW until a couple of years ago) which was really nice, lots of destroyed buildings, which were in multi levels, something that was quite rare unless you'd played necromunda. The club had a whole set of these buildings which were mounted onto 12" x 12" hardboard squares, which kept most of the buildings intact long after their life expectancy. However, with our move a few years back from a small premises to a much larger one, the buildings got packed away into a box, and with the decline in popularity of the game the box was forgotten about. and. squashed. So, with Malifaux becoming popular, and having a distinct lack of suitable terrain, I thought it was time I tackled the rather squashed and definatly unloved box of Mordheim terrain. Here are a couple of (rather awful) photos of what the terrain looked like as it came out of the box

I set about bending back the card so it was all pretty much as straight aw I could get it, then took the pieces that had fallen (or been ripped) off and matched them up as best I could with the different board sections. after this I cut up lots of lolly sticks to various lengths and used a hot gluegun (purely for speed), to "brace" the card, give it some strength, as the bases were all very strong anyway, the walls just needed that little bit of reeinforcing to bring them back to life. Now, these still need cleaned up, excess glue taken off, and some painting of the lolly sticks, and a couple of the bases need polly fillered and painted, but the main aim of this session was to get the terrain in a condition where it can be used. Hopefully someone else at the club will follow my lead and do a bit of painting! here are the results:
