Legos are awesome!

Quick post today… just wanted to share a nifty tip I picked up on Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum. Use Lego windows in your terrain projects. You can buy individual pieces from the Lego website for dirt cheap and have them shipped right to your house. I think I paid $.20 a piece for the window that I ordered. They also have a couple of different window options, and one of the two different types I ordered actually open. Not critical by any means, but it could add a fun little dimension. Check it out…

Just cut/file/dremel the pieces off of the tops of the window frames and they slide right into the foamcore. You could also skip the window frames if you wanted, but personally,  I like the way that they look.

Here they are placed in a new piece of terrain that I am currently working on.

Very good looking windows, cheap and easy.

I do not plan on using them in every building I make as I do not like all my buildings to look too uniform, but I will definitely use them here and there.

  1. Hi Mike,

    first article I read on your blog and already an excellent idea. Never occured to me to use Lego windows for 28mm buildings.

    To answer your question you asked your audience in the other blog entry: I very much enjoy your step by step Mordheim tutorials / reports. It is nice to see how something was put together and which materials have been used to achieve a certain effect/look. Very inspirational and gives one good ideas for similar projects.

    Cheers

    • The Lego idea was not mine, I came across it on Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum, but they are the perfect size and look great, so I wanted to share it with others.
      Thanks for the input about post style. My next project will not be a step by tutorial since I am too far into it to start doing that in depth now, but I will start making my posts more detailed in the future.
      Since I am fairly new with blogging, I will just need to stop and take pictures much more often.
