^I'm sorry. I can never think of titles for these posts.

I'm Horatio. I am an artist/student by trade.I've been looking for some sort of story-based skirmish game and Mordheim seems to be to my taste (late Middle Ages, low fantasy, primitive gunpowder, dwarves...). This seems to be the last bastion of actual discussion. Sadly, I live in North Carolina which means that finding a place to play is difficult at best. Anyhow, I've come here to enjoy the game vicariously and hopefully get a little bit of that veteran knowledge while I attempt to get all my ducks in a row.

My only gripe is that the forum doesn't run well on Opera, but that's only a minor setback.

PS: Extra points if you can get BOTH the literary references of my name.

Welcome aboard! Mordheim sounds like it definitely fits the bill for what you seek in a skirmish game.

Chances are even if there isn't a Mordheim gaming group, per se, there are Warhammer players in your area. Try them, maybe some used to play or would be interested in trying it out. Necromunda players would probably be interested as well.

"There are more things in Heaven & Earth, Horatio, than are Dreamed of in your Philosophy"...& then there's Hornblower. That about exhausts my Horatio referrences...at least until my second or third cup of coffee. SO...until then...WELCOME ABOARDWay Cool Tom's But with a Charm ALL Its Own Mordheim Forum! May your stay be a LONG & MERRY one.

If you're in the Fayetteville vicinity, Drugart is The Forum Man to contact. There's also solo gaming to consider; for someone with a vivid imagination & literary aspirations, this CAN be an interesting gaming form. Have FUN!

Welcome aboard Horatio!

I don't know how I could forget Britain's GREATEST & MOST FAMOUS Admiral, but I did...imminent senility rears its ugly head AGAIN.

Sorry for the off-topic, Horatio...inspirational name.

Thank you for the warm reception!

Solo gaming for now, I believe. Fayetteville is a bit far for regular visits (I really hate driving).

What kind of artist am I? I prefer sculpture but my current tutelage is leaning more towards painting.

Don't feel bad, I'd momentarily forgotten that one too. And I recently stumbled across another.
References I've thought of so far:
a) Hornblower
b) Hamlet
c) Nelson
d) Horatio at the Bridge (Roman myth)

Maybe later. I'm sure I have some photos kicking around on my home computer.

Can anyone recommend a good compiled version of the rules? Unofficial warbands and all, if possible. I find it difficult to keep track of all the content when I have to flip between PDFs.

Also, what about the alternate settings? Lustria seems interesting but the website is pretty minimal...
