PostSubject: Ah, the joy of volunteering information to strangers!   Tue 14 Apr 2009 - 8:17

Honestly, I join so many forums that I should have a copy-pastable introductory text - you know, kind of like a mid year report from a class you don't excel in;

'[insert name] is a pleasant and polite student, who does [his/her] homework to an acceptable level and is attentive in class. However,
I feel [he/she] could achieve higher results if they put in a more concerted effort...'

(note to self: potentially marketable idea?)

Anyway...

Although relatively young, I've had love/hate relationship with both WH40K and WHFB for many years; in that I love modelling, converting and gaming, along with the fluff for both universes, but hate the monitory cost, which I feel more acutely than most, living in New Zealand.

After abandoning the game for a lengthy period of time, I came across Mordheim as a fluff and conversion rich, more affordable alternative to the main GW products after taking a minor peak at Necromunda (which I and my nascent group are also planning on playing - please PM me if anyone knows some balanced rules for Chaos Cults, especially Slanaash.)

As I live a fair distance from my nearest GW store, which I don't believe supports Mordheim campaigns anyway, I have had to turn to the internet for ideas and advice (basically I googled 'mordheim forums' and then lurked for a bit Laughing .)

Primarily I'm looking into collecting a Witch Hunter warband as I positively adore the fluff. Although from what I gather they are not the power gaming band o' doom, that's not what I am looking for!

Regardless, you will probably see my posts obliviosly flooding the wrong forums for the next week or two Wink .

Welcome Whyte!

Yes, Witch Hunters are not necessarily the best warband (are they even moderately good?), but if you enjoy their fluff and style then that's what really matters. I look forward to photos of your warband!

Alright, enjoy your stay. You came to the right place. Very Happy

One wonders if the War Band of Witch Hunter Whyte will smite their Foes with Wighteous Wage...well, one wonders if one is a Strange Old Man. Suspect Now that I've gotten that out of my system...WELCOME ABOARD, Pilgrim!

May your stay here at St. Tom the Administrator, Light of Sigmar's Sleep Yet Blessedly Cool Mordheim Forum be a LONG, MERRY one. Have FUN, Amigo! thumbsup

I've played Whitch Hunters in 4 of the last 9 campaigns I've played in (ah the joy of an area with a strong Mordheim community) and won twice with them. Playing Witch Hunters in a campaign is much more about the "meta" game than the tabletop game.

The only reason I'm definately NOT going to play them in our upcoming campaign is that of the 8 or 9 guys who will be participating, it looks like 3 are going to play Witch Hunters... So now I have to decide between my Dawi or the Sisters (or my Reiklanders, or my Middenhiemers, or my Cult of the Possessed or my Undead, or my...)
