I've had a pretty positive response to our interviews so far. I need some help from the community though. I do have some more people in mind for interviewing, but I need some suggestions on any community members to interview. They don't have to be here on Tom's either. I'm looking for ANYONE of talent or note in the community to interview. Share your suggestions here!

Depends on what its on...

Ive been playing for GW for 6 years, used to be in a place with over a hundred people, moved to an area with none. Started up intrested in D&D and recently mordheim. I have recieved numerous seals on the hammer and anvil for my rules designing (a now fairly dead site Sad ) and have recently finished designing the nipponese warband for mordheim.

If you honestly have no one else better (almost anyone Razz), id be happy to answer any questions you.

The problem isn't coming up with A Fellow Forumite who I would be interested in knowing better but in limiting the number to less than fifty or so. We have a LOT of UBERTALENTED Folks & even more who may not be award winning, World class modelers & painters or rule gurus, but are interesting people nonetheless. There are also a few Guys that would be SUPER interviews that may have difficulty expressing themselves well in our twisted & challenging language.

A partial not-in-order-of-preferrence-to-protect-feelings list for moi would be:
Painters & Modelers:
UnderBheit
blitz_krieg_bob
Ash
Aston
Skavenblight & Kapitan Hak [team]
Krugg_666
quidamcorvus
dalanshin
Leszczu
Belzebub
WarBossKurgan
blessed knight
zelophahad
Andy
Jackanory
Ezekiel

Rules & Fluff
Da Bank & Mordheimer [team]
StyrofoamKing
VonKurst
Asp

Interesting Folks
Duce
lord siwoc
Mr.Sinister
Goonstah

AND this a VERY limited selection that just came to mind...if your name doesn't appear feel honored or, at least, lucky that you are NOT wandering the cluttered maze that passes for my mind. See what I mean?

If you want a challenge, try to get hold of Tuomas Pirinen to do a 'Mordheim, 10 years on' interview. Or, for something more topical, how about Gill Stevenson who is GW's legal manager responsible for IP?

Sure. Insanity is revered in certain cultures...Native Americans & Motorcycle Gangs spring to mind along with the English, although they call it eccentric. Being CRAZY as a Loon has served me well over the years. Since I've already been cross examined, I've broken the ground for you...plus you could do likewise for a couple other Guys on my "Interesting" list.

I'm going to avoid this one so as to not draw GW's attention to my site, or else they might try and shut it down. >_<

OOTMH (In no particular order)

Great architectural achievements:

Playtable (Sartosa buildings. Need I say more?)
dalanshin (tea house and other buildings. WOW!)
HellspawN (amazing finished buildings)
Jackanory (detailing and painting)
Horned Rat (excelent Depron work)
Cianty (well already interviewed, but amazing painting)
Ashton (No base approach and caracterful buildings)
Asp (carefully constructed and staged scenery furniture)

Great Painting and modelling abilities:

Skavenblight (needs no presentation)
Admin Tom (already interviewed)
Cavonius (neat style)
Warbosskurgan (inexahustible inspiration)
garathiel (clean, crisp style)

Well I bet there are lots of other VERY TALENTED people in this forum, and please no offense if I forgot to mention quite a few, but the people mentioned has inspired me a lot to try to finish my own work.

The Tuomas Pirinen idea is GREAT! hope he's interested.

An interview with some people like Mike McVey, Marike Reimer, or Tony Ordona will be great too.

Hope that helps.

Nick Kyme is on the Mordheim Rules Comittee (don't know if it still exists anymore) so he might know the wherabouts of Tuomas.

Try his blog at: http://www.nickkyme.com/

Although an interview with THE Mordheim Guy would be fascinating, I would advise NOT drawing GW's attention to ANYTHING that you care about.

So, I had a slightly different interview lined up... sent off the questions and all about a week ago. I haven't heard anything back yet though. Sad I'm hoping they will get back to me soon.

That's why it's been so long without an interview though. I did just message someone else asking for an interview in the meantime though, so hopefully I'll have another one up soon.

Not that I'm a SUPER authority... but I emailed Tuomas Pirinen, many years ago. SUPER COOL GUY! Very Happy After he left from GW, he had signed a non-disclosure agreement with them, so he could not say anything about the future of Mordheim. We talked about how he started working on Mordheim and how it came to be, some of his original visions and intent for the game. VERY pleasant conversation. Last thing I know he was working as a video-game designer. I know he USED to be subscribed to the Yahoo Mordheim Group... place a note there, and hope he emails you back. Smile

EDIT: Google is WONDERFUL! Very Happy I just found an interview with him (I believe) regarding his work with Ubisoft Vancouver, dated September 2009! LINK Also there is a Tuomas Pirinen in Facebook, but could not see his profile.

I would suggest Terry Maltman(yahoo mordheim forum), Steve Cornette (Lustria)Email: grafixgibs@hotmail.com Khemri, Tommy Punk (Yahoo Mordheim Forum and owner of Pestilen Mordheim site) and Mordheimer for creating the first major resource for Mordheim. Oh, yes, Ian Davies (yahoo mordheim forum and original rules committe member from 2005)

Yes, I would suggest staying clear of GW staff at the present time since all the things GW IP has done to bloodbowl.

I forgot two people: Von Kurst and Playtable as if you have had the pleasure to read their battle reports, see the pics of the awesome terrain and you will see why you need to....did I mention they have not stopped playing Mordheim in 10 years!!!!!
