Title: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Daniel Phillips on January 08, 2019, 08:24:00 am
Going to run the campaign as written in the rulebook. Any force from the core rulebook is fine, if anyone wants to use a force (or anything else) from any other source let me know and I'll take a look. All rules can be downloaded from here (http://broheim.net/downloads.html#).

Please let me know what gangs you are taking.

Current players and gangs:
Daniel - Skaven
Grahame - Sisters of Sigmar
Rob - Elves
Chris - Undead
Andy - Undead

Hi Dan
If there are any spaces left I would like to join in the campaign. I've got an Empire warhammer army so possibly on those lines or witch hunters.

Can't find the rules for Steam tanks and cannons?? ????

Great, plenty of space left. Empire stuff works fine for any of the Human Mercenaries or Which Hunters, in the previous campaigns most people's mercenary warbands were made from the Empire Militia sets.

Which Hunters:  an excellent consumer magazine?

After a search through my garage for troops, I've found enough bit and bobs to go for an undead army in the campaign!

The carnival is coming to town. (I'm playing Carnival of chaos).

Nice, that's two forces I don't think we had in the last campaign.

Standard 500 gold starting.

Instead of Reiklanders, I'll field Goblins, to add to the confusion!

Dan, I've got various Mordheim scenery bits (including resin buildings) that Paul left with me for storage a while ago; would they be of use? Plus, shall I bring my GoR cobblestone  3x3 mat?
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Daniel Phillips on February 06, 2019, 04:36:59 pm
Yes please, the more scenery the better.
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Chris Davies on February 26, 2019, 04:24:45 pm
Dan, I'm thinking of going for Undead rather than Golins- less likely to squabble!
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign

When will this start? Do I have to speed up my new chisce  - die Todt riden schnell!
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Rob Farley on March 15, 2019, 08:29:12 pm
Just to repeat Chris' question, when is this starting? How soon do I have to make my mind up?
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Chris Davies on March 16, 2019, 09:07:27 am
And the Undead are now stirring with a rattle of bones...

Sorry for the slow answer. We're playing 2nd Monday of the month so are starting April 8th.

Dan, will we use the optional rules for vampires as given in in the Aristocracy of the Night aricle from Town Cryer (see the Broheim website)?
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Rob Farley on March 25, 2019, 12:45:25 pm
Chris, do you mean the "Lords of the Night" article from Town Cryer #11 or the "Aristocracy of the Night" article that was never published? Because the second one says that the rules "allow for some potentially overpowered hero builds".
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Chris Davies on March 25, 2019, 03:57:15 pm
The unpublished one! But I'm not especially fixated on it ,  just wondered...
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Chris Davies on March 27, 2019, 12:16:34 pm
Dan, any further thoughts about vampires? I don't think after all we should use the suggestions in the article - too complicated!
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Daniel Phillips on March 27, 2019, 12:20:10 pm
Going to have to say no to 'The Aristocracy of the Night' rules. Some are ok but others (Blood Dragons in particular) are very overpowered. If you (or anyone else) wants them I'm happy to errata them to something more balanced.

The extra skills in Town Cryer #11 are fine to use.

Thanks Dan. BTW, I take it these are not gender specific?

Correct. Although Lahmians (known as the sisterhood) are mainly female, male Lahmians are far from unknown. The others are split more evenly.
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Grahame on March 27, 2019, 04:11:27 pm
Speaking of sisterhoods - I have discovered I own some Sisters of Sigmar  so I will be using them and not Skaven.
Grahame
PS I also discovered my certificate from the 2006 club Mordheim campaign - seems I came last! Must do better.....
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Daniel Phillips on April 02, 2019, 12:45:59 pm
Please can you confirm if you will be there on the 8th.
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Chris Davies on April 02, 2019, 04:15:22 pm
Confirmed!
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Rob Farley on April 04, 2019, 02:06:56 pm
I'll be there. I think I'm going to go with Shadow Warriors (from Town Cryer #10).
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign
Post by: Grahame on April 04, 2019, 03:26:25 pm
just to confirm - I'll be there. Sisters are doing it for themselves.....

Dan, was there any treasure with those treasure tokens or just the +1 experience?
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign

There may well have been, I'll check tonight (don't have any of my books with me).
Title: Re: Mordhiem campaign

Just to confirm that Mordhiem isn't running this month due to me being away.

My apologies Dan cant make tonight's campaign as playing Saga catch up.

The Mordhiem campaign has ended!

Well done to Rob who was the clear winner having both won all his games and having the highest gang rating.

Thanks to all those who took part.
