Fighting in the Streets

The other night my Saturday gaming group took a night off from the polyhedrals to take a vaction in lovely downtown Mordheim.

Sites like TerraGenesis have taught me the basics of terrain making but I didn't have any real hands on experience.  But over the course of a few nights with a hot wire foam cutter I put together some basic hills.  Nothing major - and still in need of some greenery - but after I was happy with the results I decided to move up to something else I've been wanting to build for a while now.
