After a productive rummage through the city, it was time to head back to their temporary den. The Skaven warband “Fierce” was scurrying back through the city as a good pace. The six rats easily moved through the shadows without making a noise. Even the large rat ogre, Stinky, had no trouble sticking to the darkness as shadows grew longer.
Cheesey the Assassin Adept came to a silent hault, and the warband froze. From the distance came the loud bellowing of the quarreling green-skin warband. The dumb brutes were walking in their direction. Cheesey saw that they were both heading down the same street, with only one way to get to the other side; by slicing through the thick sculls of the Orc warband.
Cheesey almost squealed in delight of the thought of sinking his fighting claws into the Orcs who had forced him to retreat.
The persistent yet patient badgering of the neighbor I so happily taught about Mordheim has forced me to start Montana Mordheim Campaign 2. Michael has not even mentioned Mordheim in months, but when I went over to see his new puppy, he was calling “Mortheim” out to me before I even go to his driveway. I really didn’t think I’d be able to post on this blog for a long while, and I most likely will not be able to do the most fun parts (building terrain and painting minis), but the playing the game every week or so will still be a good break.
Ashton’s Orcs (no time for names yet =(. )
I got forced into Orcs when I started up Mordheim again because I was the only one with the Mordheim warbands, and I couldn’t just have Skaven Warbands. But boy am I glad I did. I now understand the craze people feel for the greenskins. I’m in the middle of a campaign with a Orc and Goblin Warband, and I’m doing pretty well. I’ve developed/read about/seen a couple different tactics for starting an Orcs and Goblins warband in Mordheim, and I’ll try to share my thoughts on them here:
Orc and Goblin Necessities
No matter what direction I go with a Orc and Goblin Warband, I will always get all four heroes (200gc) as that directly affects my income after every game. Only getting four heroes to start is probably the biggest draw-back for the Orcs and Goblins.
Squigs and Goblins and Orcs, Oh My!
This is the warband I am currently playing with, and is probably the most fun of the Orc and Goblin warbands to start with. Read the Rest of the Post >
