Games I Like – Mordheim – Great alternative terrain from Warlord Games

With my energy being really focused on Warhammer these past six months I’ve been bandying around ideas doing  skirmish content with an End Times theme. Mordheim is a natural shoe-in as a Ruleset. Post-Apocalyptic skirmish Fantasy? Done.

The biggest issue with an Urban Fantasy skirmish is suitable terrain. You can find plenty of intact buildings from various sources, but damaged and destroyed buildings are harder to come by.

Enter the Warlord Games Ruined Hamlet. This three-pack of plastic-resin (think Warmachine plastic, not hard styrene) is modular and easy to work with. It’s pretty much perfect for everything from WWII Europe to the smoking ruins of Ends Times Altdorf.

Basing them on MDF I used even the packaging to cobble and tile the floors, some spackle to beef up the rubble piles and then sand to texture around them. Everything was built with Gorilla Super Glue. Polystyrene cement won’t work on this stuff.

With a little creativity, some airbrushing and painting I put together enough buildings from three kits (and an MDF ruin and Renedra barn) to easily fill a 4×4 table.

I highly recommend it if you’re looking for alternative Mordheim scenery!

  1. I used Polystyrene cement with no problems… except for gluing them to the mdf bases…

  2. *apply

  3. Yeah… mine was brush on as well. Ah well… I’ll try it again next time!

  4. Would the Warlord Ruined Hamlet set be a good size for Malifaux? I’m thinking about grabbing a pack for some Quarantine Zone terrain.

    Loving the battle reports, by the way, particularly the Throwback series. You’ve got me looking wistfully at my Necromunda and Mordheim again. Keep up the good work!

    • It should work fine. I used a bunch of them to make the Mordheim Terrain at MWG. They’re a good kid, but base them on some MDF and rubble them up to get the best out of them.
