I found Coreheim rules - are these the most commonly used rules nowadays?

Could we have a sticky at the top of this forum with links to the most common rule sets?

Thanks.

Hi!
I'm pretty sure no two player-groups play the exact same game as it is very common to houserule a lot and many groups use rules that are rather far away from the original rules (due to the original rules not being very handy in a lot of situations).
Coreheim is exactly that: houserules that are somewhat based on the original rules but heavily modified.
I couldn't tell if there is a ruleset that established itself well enough to be used by a lot of player groups. If you want to check out what was last published by GW, there are links in the "Mordheim Resources" section of the forum. You can find the PDF's of the rulebook here (along with some other rules):

They are the 3 PDFs "Rules - rulebook part 1" (, 2 and 3)

I am not sure how popular coreheim rules are but I don't see them discussed very much here at Tom's. While every group will have their own set of house rules and tweaks I think most use the original rules set with additions of annuals, errata, etc. Even though it can cause a headache at times the complexity available from the "official" rules is well worth it. Warband selection is quite slim in coreheim, and was a primary reason our group did not care for it.

Definitely use the resource that RationalLemming has put together at the link Grimscull shared.

We use the official rules with a small scattering of house rules.

A similar discussion--

And of course my vote for the 'official' rules even though my group uses a lot of house rules too. It is possible that some members of the forum may use Coreheim rules but just not advertise it due to its lack of popularity on this site. Shotguncoffee is our most vocal coreheim supporter.

Yeah, esssentially you've walked in to a Manchester United bar and asked if anyone here fancies Liverpool Very Happy

Official rules are more widelyused - I'd say 65/35.

And these are the typical differences:

Coreheim:
+Balance
+Streamlined
+Multiple builds for each warband
+Clearly written rules
-Fewer warbands
-Less luck & randomness (which many players enjoy)
-Fewer pieces of special equipment
-"Soul of the game"
