Great topic idea Tag! Very Happy

Hmmmm... good question. I went into a GW store in 1999 and they had this amazing city scenery board. I played a demo game with a friend of this new game called "mordheim" and I really liked it. So I bought the starter box. :bom:

Some summerday, I think it was. Long time ago... well actually two or three years, not that long Wink

I played WHFB against a Dogs of War- Player and asked him about one of his units of duellists, as they had a different colour-sheme.
He told a little bit about Mordheim and his warband, I knew about it, but I had never thought about actually playing.
So that's when I got interested in the City of the Damned Smile

Well, I've been playing Warhamer Fantasy and read about Mordheim in the White Dwarf prior to its release. When it did came out I immediately bought the box and never looked back at Warhammer ever since.

I used to collect Fantasy, and 40k back in the day, and got heavily into Mordheim from the first announcement in White Dwarf... however, education and business ties mean that I've been out-of-the-loop for a while now, but I've picked the game back up over the past 6 months, and well... here I am!

I think what drew me to Mordheim initially was the whole 'personalisation' that can be performed with the game. Fantasy and 40k are played-out with large armies of troops, on large green spaces... whereas in Mordheim, you have a handful of troops, so you get to spend more time developing them, and creating them. Also, for the battlefield, everyone has their own take on what the streets of Mordheim should look like... all gaining ideas and inspiration from each other...

Well, I was quietly living my life like a normal person when suddenly, Admin Tom arrived with his mad ideas about "building a city" and "playing with miniatures"... I just shook my head and thought "WTF??" and then I laughed at him, haha, Tom you're a fool, you're still a kid, you want to play playmobil with dice, and so on...
But then, one day, I went to his home and I saw... I saw the Truth... I saw my Destiny... I saw Mordheim. (tadaa)
So Tom managed to "brainwash" me and I finally bought a Mercenary sprue (after borrowing Tom's Reiklander for a while) ... he painted approximately 60-70% of my warband Very Happy and organised the whole campaigns and scenarios, and now I'm in!

So if one day you need your grandma to believe that Santa Clause still exists, call Admin Tom!!

I got started with Mordheim a few months after the boxed game was released. I'd started playing 40k #rd, really wanted to play something fantasy oriented but was advised to stay away from fantasy until the new edition came out.

Got Mordheim and had a great time with it.

Hahah Great Idea Tag:

I had a geek buddy in highschool who spent thousands of dollars on these models, and one day, he had us all over, and just got us started on it. We started going to Games Workshop (in the Glendale Galleria) on Fridays for a champaign.

We had a group of 6 friends or so who played for a couple months... Good times right there... Then we all moved away (or grew up), and now I'm in Montana, putting together a board/landscape hoping that someone will want to play lol.

Merry Christmas all!

i'd been playing 40k for a few months, more out of desperation for some form of gaming v(I'm a roleplayer and fantasy buff at heart). No one wanted to try WHFB, and the local GW junkies said to wait for the new edition of WHFB before buying anything. I was in a store looking at the GW stuff when I saw Mordheim. Low model count, cool scenery, comparatively good price-to-value ratio, I'll bite! I brought the game back to a local game shop and our store Mordheim campaign war born.

We used to play Gorkamorka a lot because we like orks. Then we played necromunda because we already had a lot of the terrain and one guy kept building more and more terrain for cities. When mordheim came out we were really excited to finally play necromunda with fantasy miniatures. Turns out mordheim is way better. Since we got those 2 rooms full of sci-fi terrain we also play kill-team with some mordheim rules.

A mate that played WHFB in our group introduced us to Mordheim. I guess we liked the idea of being able to buy a new warband for $50AUD if we got bored with the one we were playing. After a few games we were all addicted.

Started out as a Warhammer player.

We grew tired of the big games and started with Mordheim in 2000 and never played Warhammer Fantasy again.

I was interested in it when it was being playtested in White Dwarf, then it was the first game I'd ever properly played in a campaign setting. I loved the fact my Middenheimers grew in experience and strengh and that it was a more personal game than 40k. I recently got back into wargames after a year and a bit out and some of the first miniatures I rediscovered were my Mordheim Hired Swords...
