Warhammer buildings

Well, it only took three-and-a-half years from the time I purchased the box to assemble the cardboard buildings that came with the fifth edition Warhammer boxed set.
Here you can see the results, pictured with the commander from the Nightmare Legion for scale. These aren't diorama models, but they will do nicely for wargames.
In addition to the tower, there is a large house or inn as well as a small shed. I would like to find some more old Warhammer scenery like this, but this type of thing is relatively rare and expensive on eBay.
The buildings were relatively straightforward to assemble--just punch out each die-cut section and use some white glue to fasten it. I also used scotch tape on the inside to ensure the pieces stayed together. Pro tip: line the edges of each piece with an appropriately colored permanent marker to make it look less like paper and more like a building.
These three structures will make a nice area to fight over or around once I have some Oldhammer forces to put on the table. They will also go well as terrain for Song of Blades and Heroes games, or even Book of War.

Sometimes aquarium decor is the right scale for wargaming, but also very expensive. Getting it from a pet store at least saves the S&H charges, though. Places like RpgNow.com have free templates that can be printed out on cards tick on your home computer, too.

It's nice to see Capt. Mordini touring some real estate.

3 1/2 years? Hah - I got 2 5th edition boxed sets from a store that closed down 15? 18? years ago. I've still got 1 set of the buildings unpunched and unbuilt. Maybe one day...
