Hello everyone. I've been dabbling with miniature painting and skirmish games for about two years now and I've always wanted to get into Warhammer. Painting all those minis seemed daunting though, and I prefer skirmish games more, but I recently found Mordheim! I'm really excited to dive into it, and someone pointed me in the direction of this community and I really like what you guys have got going here.
I have a few questions:
Nowadays, do most folks build their warbands via random models? The actual Mordheim minis seem really rare on eBay and when they are on, they're expensive.
I'm thinking about whipping up a Cult of the Possessed or Undead warband. For building my warband, I'm trying to use plastics only, and preferably GW minis, in that order of importance, but I'll stray if a model is right or there are no options in the GW line. I'd really like to avoid metals and non-plastics.
So with that said, for the Cult of the Possessed, I'm really torn what minis to use for my cultists. And for the Undead, that warband seems pretty easy to make, all except for the Vampire - GW has some great ones but they're metal, and I'm using their Necromancer as the Necro for my warband, leaving no plastic vamps.
Any thoughts on any of this?
