Hi all... first off, I'm a girl and I don't know if there are many girls that play warhammer or mordheim. My bf is a freak for warhammer and all this stuff and after 4 years he has finally managed to convince me to play. He's also finally convinced me to play Magic: The Gathering... I think all his geek dreams have just come true, lol.
Anyway my background is in role-playing and LARPing so I picked Mordheim as there seems to be more of a role-playing element to it than straight out combat. I've flicked through the sourcebook and he has enough figures to put together a Skaven warband for me (I like rats so that's perfect!) and I think he is going to play the wolf guys (sorry forgot the name already - one of the 3 middenheimer bands anyway). Also the Witch Hunters look cool, so if i like the game I may buy my own figures.
I've got a basic idea of how game play works but I am having trouble working out my warband, all the math seems to escape me, lol. I've seen my bf do it on paper but I was wondering if there were any online calculators to work out warbands? If not I'll just do it the old fashioned way, lol.
Anyway, that's me! I've checked out the painting tutorials and found them really helpful so I will hang out here and hopefully pick up some good tips and surprise my bf at how "fast" I am learning, lol.
