Port of Gierburg

The Port of Gierburg is a gaming board suitable for historical and fantasy settings such as Mordheim, Pirates and my own Gierburg setting, of course. It represents an old harbour section with dirty cobblestone streets and rows of half-timbered houses.

This page is updated continuously as I work on the board. Infrequently some diorama-like photos are added for your viewing pleasure.

  1. Hey,
    just wanted to say what an amazing, inspiring build this is!
    I am in the process of building a board using a lot of your great ideas.

    Yesterday I tried your stonework painting technique and something crazy happened.
    I painted a building I made from Styrofoam. I outlined the stonework pattern with a ball pen and then cut grooves into the foam, creating a stone pattern this way.
    When I applied the pigments with the binder the blue ink from the ball pen got transported to the surface somehow. :D now I have blue plaster lines!
    Have you ever tried to emulate the plaster lines by actually using plaster after the paint job and wiping off the excess?
    I will try this tonight, let's see how it works.

    Thanks for the great builds!
