Finished the glueing part – Zone Mortalis

Hello,Today I glued all walls to their bases and put a weight on top of them.

The next step will be the painting. I would start today with the already glued and dried plates, but I don’t have the colors yet.

I’ll try to do this in the next two weeks.


Zone Mortalis


I started to built a Zone Mortalis Game Board. When the board is finished I hope to play many games on in, both normal and Kill Team. I found some really funny rules for that.

The first rule for normal games is, that you have only numbered markers you move around and these markers maybe represent one of your units. Maybe because each player has about three false markers to fool the enemy. This represents the augury scanner points. After one marker is in line of sight of another marker or already revealed unit the marker is removed and the unit that belongs to it is placed.

Some of the other rules I am going to explain when we start to play games.

I cut 60×125 cm (don’t know the measure in zoll) into 30x30cm (about 12″x12″) pieces. On these pieces I marked a raster of 6cm for placing the walls in the second and fourth space. This will make sure, that I can rearrange the pieces and they still will fit.

The walls are 6cm high. Its high enough to make sure that these are walls, but not so high, that you can’t move the models normally.


Here is my Zone Mortalis in its current stadium:


I want 3 small rooms, one with only one entrance (top left), one with two in opposite directions (middle left) and one with two near to each other. The high room where you can read “Ursa” is going to be a hangar room for airplanes or other stuff. The black columns are out of the mines of moria set of Lord of the Rings. If you have some left, please send me a message. They are 6cm high and are going to be look great on this board. (and they are movable)

I am going to glue the walls on their plates and paint the whole thing black. After this I am going to brush silver over it. It has a structure that will come out with this. After this is done the plate will be playable. Hopefully we have some testing games then. The next step will be adding some interior, details and stuff.

The price for 10 60×125 plates was about 60€, but I have left 6 at the moment. Maybe some more small Zone Mortalis plates will be created or a city plate. But first, this plate is my big project.
