PostSubject: New player, wanting to get into Mordheim   Wed 21 Oct 2009 - 7:46

Hello everyone. I'm currently a 21 year old college student. I've only gotten into miniatures within the past few years. It's become a fun hobby for me. I really like modeling and painting all the different miniatures. I first started with Warhammer, but I quit after awhile. I didn't like a lot of the rules, they were a little too fussy. I moved onto 40k for a bit after that. I liked how much terrain played a part in the game, but moving a hundred little guys around each turn soon got repetitive and boring. Plus I didn't really like the sci-fi themes. I'm more of a fantasy type of guy.

So that's when I started looking for some way to combine the two. Having fantasy figures, but with plenty of terrain to interact with. Plus with low numbers too, so each turn doesn't feel like a chore. So that's how I came to Mordheim. I found a bunch of resources all around the net.

I actually don't have anybody to play with at the moment. Though I've read the rules, and I think I have a pretty good grasp on them so far. I think I'm just going to go in head first and make a Mordheim table. For one, it would give me a good reason to experiment with different techniques I haven't used before, like hirstarts molds, and water effects with resin. I'd hope that I could find a group to play with. I don't really like my local game store. They're a bunch of elitist jerks.

So anyway, that's my story. Hopefully I'll be contributing soon.

Well, Amigo, I think you're going to be a FINE ADDITION to the Crew. WELCOME ABOARD Tom the A's But COOL in an Esoteric Sort of Way Mordheim Forum. Have a LONG & MERRY stay!

With the table & a lack of opponents: BUILD IT & THEY WILL COME...or not.

Even if I can't get a group together, that's fine. I'll still have a blast building the thing. I think I probably like building stuff more than playing with it. Once something of mine is done, I usually lose interest. XD

Well I hope you don't lose interest. It's been quite some time since my last game against a live opponent, but the creative aspect of the Beasty has given me a TREMENDOUS amount of enjoyment over a GREAT number of years. I hope it proves the same for you, Amigo!

I'm quite content to play by myself too. I can only hope that one day I can develop multiple personalities, so people wouldn't judge me as much. lol

Meh, if you have a local gaming club where people play fantasy your bound to get at least one or two people interested. Hell, me and my friend used to be the only two people that play mord up at our gaming store, and after awhile people just started asking us how to play and if they could play with us. Especially if your going to build up a table and paint some minis, i'm sure you get at least a couple of fish to bite.
