10mm Micro Mordheim modular board

Hello again gentle reader. My normal work hobby routine is generally between the hours of 10pm to 1am and since I’ve been on childcare duty over the course of the summer I’ve been struggling to think of ways to do a sneaky bit of work on the side during the days…. as well as pretending to be a princess, dancing, reading stories and running about.

Behold! My Micro-Mordheim modular board utilising 3mm MDF and cork tiles!

During one of my many wandering mind moments, my thoughts turned to the 25 or so 10cm x 5cm MDF bases which I have had sitting in a drawer for quite a long time now. All of a sudden, it became clear to me use them to create a modular ruined city for my Micro-Mordheim dream. I promptly chopped up some bits of emergency cork tiling (which turned out to make a pretty decent looking ruin) and my trusty woodcut relief print cutting implement (which turned out to make a pretty decent looking paving pattern) and got to work.

The two little sections didn’t take long to do at all, and I think the size for the initial board looks pretty good with some figures and monsters on. In theory a few carving sessions should sort out the paving sections and ruins leaving only the sand texturing and painting to do…….. might be achievable fairly quickly and certainly more interesting than my previous board making effort!

Also, It takes up a tiny amount of storage space. The box in the image is about an inch deep so a few boxes of tiles should be able to provide a huge number of layout options. Taller ruins will be stored separately.

Tonight’s plan is to finish the spearheads on the Arabian sculpts, then a nice picture for you all to see.

Thanks for looking.
