Just happened across this: http://www.waylandgames.co.uk/pre-orders/games-workshop/december-2011/cat_1031.html

They list "Mordheim Turf" as a pre-order for December?! Anyone know anything about this?

Since they don't provide a photo, this is mere supposition on my part, but it sounds like they're now selling static grass clusters like those offered by The Army Painter & others. The major difference is they're selling them for about twice the price. Suspect

I did some searching and I've found this item listed at several stores... none of which have photos. I think you are right though, it sounds like grass clusters.

I wonder why it's labeled as "Mordheim" though?

My guess would be that the turf is a dead looking brown in color...or maybe it glows in the dark. What a Face

Are GW developing a conscience then? Are you sure it's not twice the price for the half the quantity that everyone else gives you?

That is a distinct possibility; of course sans photo of the product I couldn't say for sure...& as an infamous critic of G.W's business practices, I'd be accused of prejudice without at least some visual proof. Suspect

They're grass tufts. There are pictures in the new White Dwarf. Of course being GW they are overpriced.

I haven't seen the latest WD, but I heard they come on an A4-sized sheet. In that case, they're quite a good value, as tufts go.

If they come on a sheet that size (6''X9") that would be a fairly competitive price. Army Painter Tufts are also somewhat over priced.

Check out the sheets here:

UK:

USA:
http://www.sceneryexpress.com/products.asp?dept=1232

The Scenic Express provide 2 sheets for $24.99.

I also noticed the other day that the mordheim warband builder I used to use on tabletop geeks has been taken down by a request from GW. Is it possible they're looking to bring the brand back?

Yeah, that was one of the first thoughts I had when they asked us to take it down. This made me think the same thing when I saw "Pre-Order" and "Mordheim"...

Sadly, I still don't think it's happening, but I would be ridiculously happy if it did.

I've gotta say when I first heard 'Mordheim Turf' it didn't inspire me with thoughts of a Mordheim resurgance at GW, let alone actual GW terrain... unless it was to be turf for the Mordheim Blood Bowl stadium Laughing

The photo in WD is hardly inspiring.

Think I'll stick to my autumn mix static grass off eBay, it'd be cheap at twice the price!
