Mordheim: Bridge House part 4 (Final part. Finished bridge house)

Hello. This is 2016 years last project. I really don't have time to build or paint nothing anymore in this year. But the next year is coming and I have lot's of plans to paint miniatures.

Back to Mordheim. This is the last part of building Mordheim bridge house. Actually this part is more like painting than building.

Step 1: Prime the building
I have painted the building with black spray primer. I had to do some minor building in this part. I added a window board. This step is really fast and easy.

House is primed with black spray

Wooden window board. Clued after the priming.

Step 2: Base color and wash
In this phase I have painted the house inside out with the base color. I have used tan, red and blue inside the house. Dark grey and lighter grey outside. Wooden planks are painted with brown. And of course the downstairs with grey color. 

Base color in place. I have used 8 different base color.

After I had done the base color I just washed the whole building with black wash. It prings some of the detail up. And because it is a ruined house it doesn't matter if it look some grimy and dirty. 

After the black wash.
Step 3: The dry brushing
This is the longest part to do. I have dry brushed all walls, floors, dirt and details. Mainly I have used same base color before the wash. Then I have lightened it up with white or similar lighter tone. 
Well in this part I was very interested to paint the building and I did not take pictures of every layer. 

I have painted about 3-5 layers to each sealing or floor sections. 

After the dry brush
I had to do some minor fixing in this phase. I added some more "dirt" on the ground floor. You can see the new dirt in color of grey. 

Some fixing details. Grey dirt. Painted brown after drying. 

Step 4: The finishing touches and details
Last part is the funnest part to do. I can ad some details to bring the ruins more alive. I have added all kind of details what is shown in original card board ruins. Some details I have just done as I see it fit.

Posters, writings, rust, water leaks, blood, Town Cryer magazines and fire place.

Red arrows point some the details what I have done to the ruins. 

Step 5: See the result
After I have done it all. I have taken some pictures and posted it up in my blog. I'm happy to hear some feedback. There is some thinks what I have done better like edges of the ruins. But I'm happy with the result. 

I hope you enjoy the finished Mordheim Bridge house. I have now done all the buildings what come with original game.

The bridge is removable for better storage and it will wont take so much damage

Next I have to build the Blood on the street expansion. Only problem is that I don't own the expansion yet. If you have the expansion houses and the plastic parts. I might just buy them for the right price. And I need the schematics also!

  1. I love it!
    I especially love the weathering and details.
    I wish I could do as good of a job as you with your flat surfaces. How many layers and what techniques do you use on the yellow wall for example?

    What I will do, though, is to shamelessly steal that "plaster over planks" look, what you got going on the bridge.

    1. Thanks. I have used just dry brush technique.
      Base color, black wash and three to five layers of base color. I have used some white paint to lighten up the color for layers.

      Be my quest to steal that technique. Just happy to give some new ideas! :)
