15mm Mordheim Building Ruins WIP

Hi, folks. I've been working on some ruins for a 15mm Mordheim board. I'm using Proxie Models ruins and buildings. I've got 4 each of the 15mm Corner Ruins, Ruined 15mm Brick Buildings, and 15mm Gothic Buildings. These are great little models at an excellent price. If you haven't checked him out yet, you should cruise over there if you like sturdy, beautifully detailed models at a way-low price. I'm using them now for Mordheim, but I think they'd be great for just about any era.

Enough yakking - pics:

 Pic above side view of the board. The street tiles are from Fat Dragon Games. The big building with the broken roof is made from 10 of the Proxie Models 15mm Gothic Building pieces.
 Pic above view from another angle.
 And another angle shot. The big building center view is going to represent a ruined cathedral/temple.
 Pic above is one of the Proxie Models 15mm Gothic Buildings which I ruined with a pair of tin-snips. The plastic is very strong so the tin-snips worked a lot better than my usual sprue-cutters. Those are Rebel Minis miniatures for scale.
 Pic above is one of the Proxie Model 15mm Corner Ruins. The minis are Eureka Dwarves I got from Eureka Miniatures USA. Another place with great minis for great prices. The skelly is Khurasan Minis (I think).

 Pic above shows a mix using the Proxie Models 15mm Corner ruins with some Ruined 15mm Brick Building pieces. The minis are Eureka.

 Pic above shows a couple of the 15mm Corner Ruins with a Splintered Light Miniatures Ogre mini. I love these Splintered Light Ogres, very nicely sculpted and detailed.
 Pic above is another ruin made from the Proxie Models 15mm Corner ruins and Ruined 15mm Brick Building pieces. The Elves are Eureka "Elves of the Lofty Spire" 18mm minis.
 Pic above shows another mixed Proxie Models ruins piece. The Orc is either Eureka or an old Khurasan.
Pic above is another of the Proxie Models 15mm Gothic Buildings. I love the stairway piece for the door. Minis are a Splintered Light Minis Ghoul (left) and an old Rebel

Minis Necromancer.

Once I get the buildings finished I will probably make a 2x2 foot board from pink foam with inscribed cobblestones.

Thanks for looking.

Great stuff Mr Joe.
I just picked up one of the new buildings but have yet to put it together. Guess I will have to get on it soon.
PS drop Mordhiem for SBH.

Great attention to detail!

You are so right - you could use them in almost any genre, although for me, WW2, modern day and a post apocalyptic setting readily springs to mind. Nice find!

@Noel: Hi, long time no see. :) Thanks, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your build. SBH is a great game, we had played it a lot for a while.

@Sub-Radar-Mike: Thanks, and welcome to the blog! :)

@Vampifan: Thanks! I was thinking of applying spackle on one to stimulate stucco, leaving patches of brick exposed. Might even fit in with Old West that way.

Nice set Joe!

They're really nice and very adaptable, looking forward to more.

That's a great set of buildings, they look excellent.

I have a set of those buildings and actually I think that they are a bit small for 15mm. Anyway they are nice and cheap! Good job with the buildings
