Murderheim - Mercenary Challenge
(part thirteen)



IN CONCLUSION

Running a Mordheim campaign with a set number of scenarios and victory conditions worked really well and was a lot of fun. If you've got dedicated players that are committed, then I would strongly recommend giving it a try.

We're already in the planning stages of the next campaign where we will all be taking the same warband type or running with a theme.

Personally the highlights for me were the deaths of the Reiklander and Middenheimer Captains in game one, possibly one of the worst starts imaginable (aside from losing your entire warband!) and the storyline that developed with the Reiklander Captain Rolof learning foul sorcery and slowly becoming corrupted by it's power and his own arrogance, only to be taken down by a blunderbuss shot fired by a lucky Middenheimer (that final game could have gone differently otherwise). This might not be the last we've seen of Rolof... *cue cliffhanger drama music*

So without further delay, here's the final results...


FINAL STANDINGS

Legion of the Wolf - Middenheimers

Murderheim - Page 3 CONCLUSION-Middenheimers_zps9e615da0

Wins: 1
Final Rating: 140


Frasier's Felons - Marienburgers

Murderheim - Page 3 CONCLUSION-Marienburgers_zpsd5d15e40

Wins: 5
Final Rating: 144


Rolof's Old Guard - Reiklanders

Murderheim - Page 3 CONCLUSION-Reiklanders_zps7bc70df5

Wins: 4
Final Rating: 166


In the end we had two winners, the Marienburgers secured the most wins and the Reiklanders ended on the highest warband rating.

A big thanks to everyone that followed/comment/looked at the pics!

It is always somewhat sad to see a campaign come to an end, especially one as attractive as this one. It did go out in GRAND style though. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SNAPPY DRESSERS!   cheers

Great campaign Din. You have truly awful luck, but I appreciate your dedication in completing this campaign and the record of it.

Murderheim III - 'Your First Warband' Challenge
(part one)



We ended up running our second Murderheim campaign a year or so after the Mercenary Challenge, this time taking up the challenge of each player running a Possessed warband. Unfortunately the photos have been lost to time, following a computer wipe, so I am unable to share them. Should the surface, I'll most definitely post them.

A while back our conversations centred around the 20th anniversary of Mordheim, campaigns of old, the model range, and what was the first warband that each of us had ever built and or used in games. It was then decided that would be the theme for the third season of Murderheim, essentially revisiting 'Your First Warband'.
The rules were kept fairly loose, so that should players want to use their original warband from back in the day, repaint it, or build a new one entirely utilising models that are now available to us collectors twenty or so years later they were free to explore these options.

Campaign Rules (aka the boring bit)
Campaign will run for 10 consecutive games, with mulitplayer scenarios taken from the 'Blood on the Streets' official article.  
We can only run a single warband, with no restarting during the  campaign. Should a warband be destroyed, then that player is out of the campaign. So despite how dire things get, we're encouraged to continue until the bitter end.  

Victory Conditions
First Place - highest number of game wins at end of campaign
Second Place - highest warband rating at end of campaign

Warband Creation
All warbands start with the normal 500gc (aside from Marienbergers).  
Hiring models, hired swords, and purchasing of equipment will follow all  the normal rules outlined in the rulebook.  
All warbands have a 33% cap on models with missile weapons brought to a game (additional weapons will remain in your warband's inventory for future use).  
Only hired swords and equipment deemed official can be used.  
Black powder weapons come with a 20% reduction in cost, as they are prone to misfiring.  
Additional Rules:  New Critical Hit Chart (page 116-117), Black Powder Weapon Misfire Chart (page 120), Mounted Warriors (page 119), Random Encounters (Best of Town Cryer) - with the amendment that these can continually occur whenever a 1 is rolled.

Scenario List/Order
Defender being defined as the warband with the highest rating.

1. Street Brawl
2. The Pool
3. The Lost Prince
4. Monster Hunt (Wyvern)
5. Ambush!*
6. Treasure Hunt
7. Wizard's Mansion*
8. The Pool
9. Monster Hunt (Chimera)
10. Ambush!*

Let the games begin... Shocked
