Hello gentle men and ladies!

My name is Greg, and I've been in the Warhammer hobby world for about 12 years now. I fell in love with Mordheim the moment it came out at my store. There is nothing better in my mind than a game that allows for creative narrative based battles. I used to work at Hobbytown doing the tabletop gaming, and have a couple years of experience with that and the associated art of game and tabletop construction.

I have recently spent most of my free time making inexpensive buildings and quick painting models in an attempt to regain the fun I used to have way back when. I found this wonderful forum when looking for extra material for my campaign and trying to fix some of the balancing issues I had when running small tournaments for the store, so thank you Google!



I currently have 14 completed buildings , 9 ruin type sections, a bridge, some above ground river pieces, ladders, plank bridges, and various extraneous scenery; all constructed with dollar store materials and painted with GW paints ($) as quickly as possible. I have a few crappy cell phone pics that I'll share if anyone is interested. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out considering the cost and the time invested.



I have three painted undead warbands, and am working on painting my recently assembled and undercoated Marienburg, Reiklander, Middenheim, Skaven, Possessed, Norse, Bretonnian, Beastmen, and Carnival warbands, along with some Hired Swords. Now if only I had friends!

I also have an entire fully painted Vampire Counts Fantasy army which really misses 6th and 7th edition.. 8th edition makes me sad (combat reforms). Oh well, I'll stick with Mordheim!


I also like a lot of other things besides GW stuff. I have a ton of D&D books from 3.5 and experience playing and DMing, and I absolutely love it. I also have a ton of Space miniatures for Full Thrust, which is free and a lot of fun. I also do some competitive handgun shooting and am involved in Libertarian Politics and philosophy. I have also done independent research on early childhood behavior, FMRI's, trauma and behavior in animals, and self defense/firearm laws as well as American History, specifically the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.


I think I'll end my wall of text now. God (or flying spaghetti monster, whoever you believe in) bless anyone who actually read it all.


Glad to be here, and thanks for all the content to read.

I read it Very Happy

You've got enough warbands to play a fully fledged campaign against yourself there Smile , hope you can bring them to bear against others soon!
I hope you'll upload some photos of them in the future.

Will do, same intro page or in a different section?

I'll try and borrow a better camera, though I don't think my quality buildings need a higher quality camera lol.

Another case of the uncooperative nature of things electronics; my internet connection disconnected...probably Gremlins.

That aside, that is a SPLENDID intro, Gregor! WELCOME to Fearless Leader Tom's Sleep Yet Occasionally Inspiring Nonetheless Mordheim Forum. May your stay be LONG & MERRY! cheers 

Many years ago I attended a couple fine historical minis conventions in Chester...some very pleasant. clown
