Ok, let me start out this post with a bit of back story. A few years a go when the Mordheim bug infected me again I was kinda sad as I did not have a base book anymore and was running off of PDFs. It was ok, but being kinda nostalgic (spelling) I wanted a copy of the actual book.

I went first to the GW site as the used to have them on print on demand and was saddened that they had stopped that. I then went to Amazon and seen the 'cheapest' place was box sets only and they were outrageously high, so my last options were Ebay and Craigslist. I bid off and on for a year for just the book, always with someone outbiding my highest bid in the last minute of the auction.

Then one day I was just kinda randomly looking on Ebay and came across an auction that some misspelled Mordheim (they had it Mordhiem). The description basically saying this guy helped out on some tourneys years ago. had a base book, and abridge rulebook for quick reference, some passout sheets for the tourneys and extras.

Well when I won the bid (for an incredable price btw cheers ) I paid up quickly anticipating getting my hands on that old lovery paperback book because that is what I was most excited about. After a quick delivery I open up the package and seen my lovely prize. I then seen the 'abridged' book which was basically a copy of the main book and Empire in Flames minus the fluff and I smiled on how useful that was going to be especially since it was spiral bound, thick stock paper, with a plastic cover. A good 'play-book'.

The passout sheets was basically a quick reference sheet they made for the mentioned tournies with all the skills, weapons, and tables from the mainbook, Empire in Flames and TC's. Handy I thought.

Then I came across the final book he sent. Once again, thick card-stock sheets, spiral bound, plastic covered. In it was 20-30 net warbands. Most of these were written by Tommy Punk and Ed Hastings who were basically two of the 'fore fathers' of the fansites and what not. Both have had a few articles in TCs. Anyway, most of you know who they are.

So after a short story long what I want to say is this, If you all are interested. I can start re-introducing these warbands here. Some of these are a little over powered or ruff but the frame work is their, others are pretty well in line. Others still are different takes one maybe the same expiramental warband. Some I had seen other I had not.

And if I do this, its not going to be all at once mind you, more like one maybe two a week. I will post them as they are here, incuding credit to the writer of the warband. That way we all can share them and playtest and adjust if needed to our own play groups.

Also what I want to know from you all and the Mod(s) is if this be the best place for it or maybe down in resources and would you like me to keep them all in one thread or give each warband it's own that way we could discuss pro/cons/adjustments as we see fit with out the thread jumping all over the place.

Questions, comments, etc?

Sounds great. I would give each warband its own topic or do a quick search and see if it has been discussed before...

As a non-mod I would suggest making them have a common thread name for example: Mega Awesome Warband: Snotling Poopflingers and the next one could be Mega Awesome Warband: Skinny Frenzied Halflings

That way we can find them easier when searching! I look forward to reading these ideas!

You can find most of anything online if you trawl long and hard enough. I fondly recall the epiphany of finding a warband list for Battle Monks. What followed that was a roller coaster ride through the Borderlands of Cathay and the rest as they say is history.

There are still some rules by Tommy and Ed hosted on the old Pestilen site. I did have the opportunity to speak with Mr Punk in the past during the development era for Nemesis Crown supplement. He shared some insights into his unpublished works as did elite scribe Mark Havener. The rules 'elders' don't necessarily visit this forum but most of them are or have been members of the Mordheim group on Yahoo.

What are the 20 or so warbands? It would certainly be of interest to somebody if you listed them. Downloads and resources for various campaigns come and go over the years. If you are holding any material that is missing from currently operational sites then it would be worth potentially be worth arranging some good quality scans of the work to pass on to fellow hobbyists serving the community.

Yeah there are a lot (approx 1/2) of the war bands here:

And on my search to make sure others are not eassily found I found these gems:

But there are still others in this book that are not or I could not (easily or at all) find. As I get time I will post those up.
