So, starting up a brand new Mordheim campaign consisting of 5 scenarios. I will be playing Bretonnians and will be fighting Dwarf Treasure Hunters.

Here is my Bretonnian Warband;

Lord Cromwell (Questing Knight)
-Shield and Sword

Sir Jekyll (Knight Errant)
-Shield and Sword

Sir Alberic (Knight Errant)
-Shield and Sword

William Porter (Squire)
-Bow

Will of the Dale (Squire)
-Bow

Oliver Greenhart (Squire)
-Bow

Cromwell's Chosen Men (4 Men-at-Arms)
-(4) Shields
-(4) Spears

Alberic's Wardens (2 Bowmen)
-(2) Bows


I am not sure what the Dwarf Player is fielding, but there will be more updates soon!

Looks interesting.
You will have a hard time wounding those T4 with only one S4 as the highest strength in your band.
Have you considered halberds for your Men-at-Arms? There is a big difference from 5+ to 4+ on dice rolls.

If you take Halberds you should exchange the shields as well, for some clubs for your squires or perhaps upgrade their bows to long bows. The shields won't be doing much good against his S4 shooting anyway.
Morning Stars for your Knights might also be a good idea if you don't get any Strength advances.

On the field, the Dwarfs seem to have the advantage with their shooting range, and the Toughness.
But with only two heroes, his going to get about 3 shards only per battle. But he can still sell that for 70gc.

What sort of campaign are you playing?

Well the reason I gave the Spears to the Men @ Arms is to give them advantage over undead (which is what I thought he was going to play). I've got tons of swords and just bows in my warband is because they were cheaper and I am pretty much going for quantity over quality, I will more than likely switch out my wargear after the first scenario when I get more money.

The campaign we will be playing is classic Mordheim with 5 scenarios, the player who win the majority of the games (3/5) will be the winner of the campaign.

Game 1: Scenario 1 Defend the find!

The Dwarfs being the smallest warband must defend their treasure from the Bretonnians!

Hiding in a ruin building with their treasure chest, the Bretonnians being the attacks start the game first

Turn 1:

The Knights and Men-at-Arms charge at the Thunderers a flurry of hits, stunning 2 Thunderers and the other two out of action.

The Squires and Bowmen rain down a hail of arrow and manage to stun the Dwarf Engineer.

The stunned dwarfs are now knocked down, the Noble Charges at the Men-at-Arms, but the Lady of the Lake was on their side and the Spear struck home and managed to wound and stun the Dwarf Noble.


The Brets ended the Dwarves turn within 6" of the find and WIN THE MATCH!


Cromwell managed to survive and managed to take out a dwarf thunderer gaining 3 exp

Sir Jekyll gains 2 exp

and Alberic gains 2 exp

Will of the Dale gains 2 exp

and the other squires, the men at arms, and bowmen gain 1 exp each

Alright, Only Will of the Dale gained enough exp to gain an advancement and he gained +1 to his BS making him now BS 3.

I also manage to acquire 80 Gold from all the Wyrdstone I collected.

I also gave Cromwell a Morning Star and bought all my Knights Light Armor.

I would recommend playing on a larger board next time.
It would make it more fun, especially for the dwarf player.

Congratulations on the victory! Smile
