Once a mighty city that can rival many others within the Empire of Man, this city grew decadent with corruption, and as these multitudes gather for the arrival of the Twin-Tailed Comet, it is said that Sigmar judged them false and smited the city, killing all those left within. Now, it has since been a dead city, where only the foolish, mad or greedy would seek to venture forth, either to plunder the riches of the city or to covet the green shards that lace the entire city with its corruption. By the year of IC, Emperor Magnus the Pious led a mighty army of Imperials to the city and burnt the cursed city to the ground after his victory over the Forces of Chaos. Contents [ show ] History Mordheim sits next to the great River Stir , which runs through the town of Waldenhof down from the titanic peaks of the Worlds Edge Mountains. The city of Mordheim was founded by the Knights of the Order of the Crow thousands of years ago, after the conquest of the land of the Goblins. They called Mordheim to their fortress in memory of their fallen leader, Count Gotthard Angelos.

Setting[ edit ] In the Warhammer universe, there was once a city known as Mordheim. Things were generally all right there, until a goddamn comet crashed into it, leaving shards of Wyrdstone around and generally destroying the city. This is bad for general business, but good for foolhardy adventurers who really, really want to loot the living hell out of an abandoned city while killing other opportunistic looters.
This is considered to be the default setting for Mordheim, although other books have built on this considerably, giving you options for playing in Lustria, the Border Kingdoms, Araby, and even far-off Cathay. Warbands[ edit ] Even the Skaven was swole back then! Hoo boy. On paper they are the jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none basic warband, but due to their easy access to shooting weapons and powerful melee fighters for the cost, they tend to be more of a master-of-all sort of warband.
Still, the standard warband Reiklanders with fucktons of ranged weapons is perhaps one of the best ranged warbands in the game. Sisters of Sigmar : Dead hard in the hands of a good player, Sisters get the coveted Steel Whip, one of the best weapons out there. Skaven : Rats cosplaying as Naruto and friends, only with poisoned swords, claws and fucking magic flintlocks.
Initially, these guys get a bad rap. Then, you have fun playing with them. If you spot someone playing that, slap them hard in the nuts. Except for that one-army beast called Vampire. Even with the large amount of extra warbands, the Vampire is still one of the best starting Leaders in the game.
Notable for the fact that most of their Henchmen cannot gain experience, so you really have a hard time when you lose an important Hero in the game. Even their Hounds are S 4. The Witch Hunters hate psychics as well. Cult of the Possessed: Chaos up in this shit! Not recommended for beginners, but smart play with buying mutations can lead to some scary-good forces. Warbands added later: Carnival of Chaos : Glorious, glorious Nurgle -centric army.
Dwarf Treasure Hunters: Slow, heavily-armored, and expensive, Dwarfs can be a force to be reckoned with. Always prepare for ridiculous shit to happen to your Troll Slayers. Every turn, you need to roll Animosity for your warband; bad rolls can result in stupidity, in-fighting, or suicidally brave charges. Beastmen Raiders: Whoo, Beastmen! Prepare to have no ranged weapons when you start the game, and some difficult models to control when you start out.
Ostlanders: Inbred and dopey mercs who get access to a priest and a goddamn Ogre in their normal warband! On one hand, they get access to goddamn doublebarrelled gunpowder weapons, but on the other, they have this weird rule that forces them to spend half their money each turn on one item of some sort. Averlanders: Shooty mercs. Many of these came with upgraded settings, for which they tend to be be balanced for. Lustria Warbands: Tend to be at least slightly OP compared to other warbands.
Ye who plays a campaign with elf-lovers, abandon all hope. Shadow Warriors: Elves from Nagarythe. Amazons : Warrior-women from the jungles of Lustria, brought in underwear to Mordheim by slavers. Yes, lasers. Dark Elves : Combine super high ballistic skills with great mobility, stealth and repeating crossbows Probably the most OP warband in the game, they start fairly weak but soon become godly snipers. Can be mighty fun when pitted against other, unofficial warbands, but damn-near broken against anything else.
Pirates: You know what pirates are. You can also enslave heroes from other warbands and make them fight for you with a mop, which is fun. Pit Fighters: Someone was watching too much Gladiator in GW at the time not really, they just ported Escaped Pit Slaves over from Necromunda , and they decided to make a warband with this guys. Crazy killing machines in close combat that will make you cry and think why did I agree on playing with unofficial bands.
There are innumerable versions of different warbands made by fans, each more OP than the other, but a few keep to the standards presented by the original game.
Border Town Burning Warbands: set in Cathay, very weeaboo and chinese. Battle Monks: No one has ever played this warband, but they look funny as hell. They like to fight unarmed, which kind of defeats the idea of Mordheim, but whatever.
Monks can get stupid fast, sort of like Skaven, too. Brings about the box of infinite fun that is the Trade Coach; it barrels through the board like it was made by cardboard and plastic if touched by the smalles shortbow arrow. Restless Dead: Undead but not.
Marauders of Chaos: Proper fuckoff vikings, oh yeah! Norse Explorers: Vikings , though not very chaos. Just play Marauders. Maneaters: A warband of Ogres ; balanced by most of the Ogres not being proppa Ogres, but smaller, weaker Oggies.
You can make a viable warband with only three models, all with three Wounds each. Night Goblins: THE horde band, your most expensive hero costs 65 gold without gear.
Corebook: Pit Fighter: A tough, battle-hardened human warrior, who carries a unique weapon. Just let your Heroes take the kill for the Exp. Ogre Bodyguard: A wandering ogre, lured to serve for the promise of violence, food and loot. Some models are clearly better like the Rat Ogre or the Troll , while others are kinda worse Minotaur. Halfling Scout: A sneaky little halfling, whose cooking talents grants the warband the ability to hire an extra warrior beyond the normal limits on warband size.
Warlock: A hedge mage, willing to offer their somewhat dubious skill with lesser magic to any band willing to risk it. Freelancer: A poor, disposessed noble turned hired sword. Elf Ranger: An elven scout whose talents are quite useful in this Chaos-touched urban jungle. One of the best snipers in the game. If he does, he can get craaazy strong. Town Cryer: 6: Imperial Assassin: A stealthy killer, whose lethal array of poisoned blades and special rules makes him deadly in ambushes.
Fanatic: 3: Halfling Thief: A sneaky treasure-hunting halfling who has a 1 in 6 chance of pinching all of your Treasures and valuables. Mordheim Annual Imperial Assassin: A stealthy killer, whose lethal array of poisoned blades and special rules makes him deadly in ambushes. Tilean Marksman: A crack-shot crossbowman who can whittle enemies down from afar with his trusty weapon.
Dramatis Personae[ edit ] A fancy way of saying "special characters", this is the list of especially infamous denizens of Mordheim who can be persuaded to hire on temporarily with a warband. Johann the Knife : Greatest knife-fighter in the empire, an assassin and thief without parallel. He can throw somewhere around knives per second.
Bertha Bestraufrung : High Matriarch of the Sisters of Sigmar, a heavily armored warrior-priestess who splits skulls in a whirling fury with her twin hammers. Town Cryer: Countess Marianna Chevaux : A vampire assassin who despises vampires and specializes in hunting her own kind. Mordheim Annual Nicodemus : A cursed wizard whose foolish wish to a Lord of Change forces him to seek Wyrdstone, afore he grows into a giant monster. The model for this guy was larger than other human models at the time, which informed his rules.
Each player starts the campaign with crowns or teeth, slave tokens, whatever the hell it is your race uses to pay the poor bastards who go out and catch arrows with their face. You use this to hire Heroes and Henchmen. You fill out the roster with Henchmen, who are somewhat less talented and inspiring than the rest of your heroes. When a model loses its last wound, you roll a d6; they have a chance to survive and keep fighting after being knocked down or stunned. As models survive games, they gain experience, which can give additional skills, stat increases, and power to your warband.
There are a huge number of optional rules for Mordheim. It is generally suggested that you play with them, as they enhance the whole game experience to a huge degree. Getting Started[ edit ] So, you want to play some Mordheim? Minis to represent your warband. Mordheim is all about character, so work out some interesting stuff.
Special mention must be made to Perry Miniatures Mercenary Box Set; it lacks some of the nicer bits, but you can build most human warbands out of it. It also comes with enough minis for several people, making starting a game even easier. Beastmen: A little conversion work, and you can build a decent warband from a box of Gor.
You have to get creative if you want a Centigor, but nothing in life is free, eh? Orcs and Goblins: Box of Orc Boyz and a box of goblins is more than enough.
Night goblins: Box of night goblins or, how they call them these days, "moonclan grots", some fanatic bits an if you want some squigs will give you what you need. Pit fighters: The "iron golem" warband from Warcry is basically perfect. Terrain: This is the big one. Remember; clutter the board, and build UP! Nothing makes Mordheim fun like building up, because otherwise, no one can suicide-charge off of rooftop or place their ranged henchmen high in the land to get picked off one by one.
This shit is pretty much all you need to get started. A normal campaign is best with at least four people, but if you can get folks at your FLGS interested, a larger narrative campaign can be fun. Supplements of Renown[ edit ] You can find them if you ask nicely.

The catastrophe also scattered chunks of solidified dark magic everywhere that drove the survivors insane and mutated their bodies. The Alcoholic : Ruffian Henchmen from the Ostlander Mercenary warbands have taken their fellows love of alcohol to the extreme and are never sober, in fact they are rarely ever conscious. While their constant state of inebriation make them near fearless in battle, their base combat abilities tend to be compromised somewhat and are unable to use missile weapons. They believe that it is their sacred duty to cleanse the City of the Damned of its taint and collect wyrdstone so that it cannot be spread across the Empire. Ancestral Weapon : The Druzhina Captains who lead Kislevite Mercenary Warbands are minor nobles and will generally be equipped with weapons and armour that has been in their family for generations.
