One of my big interests when I was younger (and still now even) was the show Stargate.  Somehow I didn't know that there were miniatures made of the characters till recently and I quickly picked them up off ebay.  Now I'm left with trying to figure out how to use them in Mordheim Wink

My first thought was to use them as Battle Monks, as that is pretty much the Jaffa background to a tee.  I'm thinking I would use O'Neil as the Emissary and maybe Teal'C as the Officer.  The Serpent heads would be the Dragon Monks and the regular skull cap Jaffas could be the Warrior Monks.  The other SG members could be a mix of soldiers and peasants I guess.  I will use the stargate and DHD as terrain pieces and the narrative can be that for some reason after coming through the stargate, none of the technology works due to magic.

Just wanted to see if anyone had any other suggestions on how to use them Smile

I've also never played with the Battle Monks, are they fun to play with / against?

Honestly, I have a hard time imagining the human soldiers/Marines within a MH-setting, even if I know about your flamethrower-wielding elves. The guys in fancy armour could be Lizardmen of course (snakeheads for the Saurus warriors, human heads for the Skinks) or maybe Amazons(snakeheads for heroes)?
The soldiers - maybe Pirates? They've got a lot of black powder weapons and not much armour...

Thanks for the reply Grimscull. I know they don't fit well but as Mordheim is basically the only Miniature game I play, I want to find some way to use them, even if only a few times. Smile

I like your idea for playing with lizardmen, that could work as well.

Thanks. The one leader in armour with human head would make a nice Skink-shaman. Don't know how strict your group is on wysiwyg, the snakemen's weapons could certainly count as spears, halberds or double-handed weapons, I guess. Not sure what Saurus warriors are allowed to take. In any case, you get quite some way with only 4 Saurus warriors, if I remember correctly. Had to play against them a few times years ago.
