On the winds of the hell northlands I do reside! I beseech you, my audience to...um...

Enough of that.

Hello all
I used to play Mordheim, Warhammer and a little of the Lord of the Rings GW game (although I started first with the old Mordheim!), stopped a few years ago however due to lack of time really, college and stuff. I've been desperate for a good game for a while now and I've thus decided to start playing again.
I'm 17 and from the north-east of England. Hartlepool if there are any northeners around here.

I'm for the most part a Dwarf player, though I also play Bretonnians in Warhammer, haven't got round to using their warband in mordheim.

My girlfriends shown interest in the game (A FEMALE PERSONS PLAYING WARHAMMER?! BLASPHEMAAYY!) and a few friends have considered playing, some of them who used to play Warhammer. On that basis I might hopefully be able to start a campaign although currently I'd be maxed out with about 5 players including myself. First however I've gotta teach some peoples how to play!

In any case I stumbled across this here forum. Hopefully I'll be able to learn a little off the players here (I was never very good) and maybe learn to paint while I'm at it (oh my, how bad my painting is!)

Welcome on the forum Asgath!

It's nice to have you on board Smile

Don't worry, I am sure everyone here will be more than happy to assist and help you with any questions you might have about painting, modelling or gameplay (we have quite a few veterans on the forum, but you might want to give extra attention to posts by our omniscient sage "Cianty" when it comes to rules Wink )

Above all, have fun!

Cheers!

Welcome back to the dark side of the dice rolling

MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Sorry, good to hear you are coming back to the hobby. And a small campaign would be a good easy way for others to get in.

Notthat many miniatures, so it is easy and relative cheap to get started.

Welcome Asgath!

I hope we'll get to see some of your models as well as some scenery maybe.

PS: Sadly my gf will probably never play Mordheim or anything tabletop. But she's fine with me spending a lot of time on that hobby so I don't think I can complain. Hm, maybe it just takes some pink orcs and goblins or something to get her hooked... Laughing

Haha, yea, I forced my wife to play a little brawl... just 10 models 6 inches apart, and she toasted me... lol ... hopefully she'll come around when I get a campaign going.

(Edit: I don't know why I think Campaign needs an "h"...)

Who do you tell that?! Laughing

"So, what do I need to role?"
"A five"
"Oh well... a six!"
"Hmm ok, and now a another 5+..."
"Another six!"
"Oh, that's a critical hit. Role another dice."
"A Five"
...

It was like that all the time. I decided it might be best not to try again.

WELCOME ABOARD!
[i]You've come to a GREAT place for information, motivation, & inspiration [there I think that covers all the "ations'].

Congatulations on suckering a group of friends into a great game. If they are still speaking to you, in years to come, they MAY thank you for opening up a new world to them. Having a mixed gender group will raise the level of conversations, but if the girl really likes the game, you guys are in deep doodoo.

haha, thanks for all the welcomes!

I'm not sure if I dare upload any pictures of my models, they really are just horrific. I might start repainting a few now, I'm a little more patient and steady handed these days I imagine (hope?).

I'll have to start putting the crafts into building some landscapes mind, I'm really stuck to tables and the odd standard Morheim buildings.

I was in the exact same boat. I started painting my first two "good ones" recently, and I'll post them when I'm done.
