About the Project

Back in 07/1998 Games Workshop released a fun game called "Brewhouse Bash". It was just a couple of cardboard pieces in the White Dwarf from July and was aimed to be played the brand new Gorka Morka Orks. Now I happened to find my copy of this nice game in the much needed spring cleaning and suddenly I felt a touch. The touch of Gork an' Mork! An' they said "OI! Git! Build us da temple with lotz of drinkin' and fightin' in!" So here I am.... WAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

So, just to see how big it all is I put an old Blood Bowl Ork into the thing. And he fits in the toilets. Yeah!

But, as mentioned, the tables needed some reworking. Plus the bar is now open!

Tables have turned... up.

Or hell. Took my almost 4 hours. But now it’s done. At least the stairway.

Maybe I will do stairs with shelves below. That blocks the tiles beneath the stairway and if it goes terribly wrong then there is no one to be blamed “but my shelves” (bad Sean Connery pun here)

So I’m at the stage where I need to get the stairs build. Since the original plan is 2D only I’m indecisive on how to build the stairs.

Option 1:

Make a XPS core and glue wood on it. Pro: sturdy, easy and keeps the room in the 2D playable area. Con: doesn’t look so good.

Option 2:

Use 4x4mm wood to construct a substructure and build the stairs on top of that. Pro: looks great, can leave space to put miniatures under the stairs. Con: fiddly to build

Option 3:

Don’t build stairs at all, add another door. Pro: least amount of work. Con: would be the original plan.

So what do you lot think? Any ideas? What would you prefer? Please leave a comment.

Even orks have their needs… a kitchen for food and latrines for “after beer and food”.

To build a wall!

With the last miniatures from Star Wars Legion build and painted and “A Plague Tale: Innocence” finished I now can build some more.

The walls got up fast, I slapped on some spackle and now comes the worst part. Wait for it to dry. Let’s look at glue and spackel dry together!

Foundations!

So we need a good foundation. First I struggled if I should build this on 4mm wood board or 3cm XPS. I chose the 4mm wood just because it was almost perfect in size plus that way I would be able to make it a terrain piece and not only a gaming table.

My initial idea was to use tiles from the Modular Dungeon Kickstarter but the area is 12 x 16 fields. So I would need 192 tiles. And I only had approximately 120 left. But since that would also have gotten *really* heavy I opted for a mixed solution. Kitchen and “the restrooms” would get each a set of tiles and the main room would be made from XPS. The Modular Dungeon tiles are made from stewalin (a synthetic, plastic-enriched moulding compound with excellent casting precision)

Thanks to the glory of my hot wire cutter THERMOCUT 230/E and the Guider Pro 2.0 I made three 120x360x5 parts and glued them down. After that settled I glued the tiles and cut a grit into the glued down XPS.

And now everything has to dry.
