Hi this will be the plog of my first mordheim warband.
One thing I love about this game is thar your band is made up of individuals, and I find great joy in coming up with back stories for my characters.
First some words about the gang itself. The are the personal guard force of a wealthy merchant called Helmut Händler. They call themself the Black Hats after the black hats that are their signum. The merchant is based in marienburg but I will not use the marienburg color scheme.
When Helmut heard about Mordheim he saw an opportunity to add more wealth to his allready fat treasure chest and gave his Chief Guard Captain, Franz Jäger the task to hire some more men and depart for mordheim.
I knew i wanted to use purple as a dominant color in my band as it implies wealth and then I just chose color that went good with it.
Here's the first painted minature. Helmut Händler himself. I love this model. He looks so pompous!
He will probably never be on the battlefield himself. That's what he got his guards for. But you never know.
Here's the first actual addition to my warband. The mercenary ogre Jürgen. He has been part of the guard force some time and his imposing stature can be very handy in trading negotiations. Kapten Franz thought it would be a good idea to bring Jürgens extra muscle power to the city of murder.
Next up is putting together my characters and the rest of the band.
