Mordheim Font

Random Bin
Author: Ashton Sanders

While in the process of redesigning my website, I have come upon the need of acquiring the Mordheim font used for the headlines in the Mordheim book.

Thanks to cianty of Border Town Burning, I have found out that the actual font used in the Mordheim Book is “Schoensperger” and runs about $42-44 USD. And if you don’t know much about Ashton Sanders, there’s no way I’m going to pay for a font =], so I owe credit to cianty yet again as he has directed me to a similar font that is actually very hard to tell the difference from the Mordheim Font. Here’s a picture of text out of the Mordheim Rule book (on top), and this Mordheim font (below):

Mordheim Font demonstration

The only real difference you can see in this image (besides being a touch on the bold side) is that the lowercase “k” is missing it’s last leg. I’m sure there’s a couple other differences, but you get the point.

I have uploaded the Mordheim Font onto my website for free download. (This font is called “Hans Fraktur” and is free to download.)

To download, click Mordheim Font.

To Install this Mordheim Font on your machine for use in word, etc., just unzip the Hans Fraktur file, and copy and paste it into your font folder (normally c:\windows\fonts\).

    If you rip pdf with living rulebook and extract fonts you will find this information in Schoensperger-Modified:

    “(c)1991 FontFontRevival; FontShop International Modified by Marc G @ the Black Library 7/99 so we can write the word ‘Skaven’ properly.”

    Cheers 😉
