Hey all!

By chance I came about this website, and according to the people behind it there is a dramatis personae named "luthor the hunchback" and there even is (according to them) a miniature released? But I can't find the rules for him and furthermore the miniature on the picture says "zombie" on the base? The mystery unfolds...

Luthor the Hunchback was, I think, an old Warhammer Quest character. He wasn't released as one of the original Dramatic Personae (though house rules may have been created since then) and as far as I'm aware, the model has never actually been released for Mordheim at all- but it does still pop up in Undead warbands now and again acting as a third dreg. The model is pictured in the rulebook as well, I think it's in one of the images on the inside of the front cover?

Oh thanks for the info, you are a true mordheim-pedia thumbsup I just scrolled through my mordheim rulebook but couldn't find the picture, maybe because I have the download copy! I found the picture of the mordheim jester though, which I think is pretty cool that they have been inspired by the art!
Anyway I'm gonna stop rambling and thanks for the info Very Happy

If you have or can get the 2004-5 Catalog, there's a photo of Luthor on page 1022. Back then he went for $3.75. What a Face

I never doubted the word of Broken1, I just couldn't find the picture! But thanks for the post of the picture! He is actually a pretty cool mini!

I always assumed they were using Luthor as a Dreg iin that picture, rather than a Zombie. He's too cool a model to just be a walking dead'un!

Like some people have said 'Luthor' was originally made for Warhammer Quest.

He was included in the box-set expansion 'catacombs of terror' out in 1995.
Info

From what I've seen minis from those expansions eventually found their way into mail-order catalogues, unfortunetly
theyre very hard to get hold of now. Another popular favourite is the goblin jester from 'lair of the orc lord'.

They really need to re-release a lot of the old collectors and rogue trader era models. I would love to get my grubby paws on a Zoat or some of these warhammer quest models.

I was hoping after the space hulk re-make Warhammer Quest might get another look!

Zoats look like they are making a come-back though! Shocked I expect to see a FInecast Zoat in the next month or two.

I wouldn't hold your breath.
They may get a release via Warhammer forge like the Chaos Dwarves though

now I want to have a closer look on this model. anyone know where he came from?

I'm guessing he's 'just' an awesome militia conversion. But how did they do that head&helmet?

I too would think he is the result of a night of fun with the Mordheim and Mercenaries (now Militia) sprues (especially the coat, legs and the book are clear signs of those, I would say - and could that be a wolf cloak from the Middenheimer sprue on his back?) and Green Stuff - while the face and helmet may well exist on some obscure sprue, they look 'pimped' to me. Wink

But I dare say he goes well with your avatar! Razz
