2021 Skaven Warband Conversions

Mordheim Warbands,Skaven
Author: Ashton Sanders

I’m making a new Skaven Warband for 2021!

All of these minis except for the sorcerer came from the current Skaven Bloodbowl pack. I love these minis because they’re so dynamic. They all look like they are running or about to run. Here’s some of the pictures of the minis during the conversion process, and what I did to give them weapons.

Warhammer box set building

I bought an old Warhammer box set which came with this one little building. I had a request to scan it, so here it is.

12 years pass, and the dust falls off Mordheim!

Author: Ashton Sanders

Life has changed in many ways since my last Mordheim post 12 years ago. I moved from Montana to Oregon, and I’ve had two children, but I still love Mordheim! The stars have finally aligned again, and it’s time to get back into Mordheim.

I stored all my Mordheim terrain, models and supplies in the garage, with only some damage from when I pulled them out two show kids hope to play. Haha.

I started on a couple terrain pieces, painted up a few more orcs and finished creating the storage briefcase for the Orc and goblin Warband. And I’ve started testing some ways to use the CNC to create a great Mordheim board.

And one of the most exciting parts of breaking out the great game of Mordheim is sharing it with my two boys who each glued, based, primed and painted a black orc Warband!

Thanks for following.

See you in the city of the damned soon!

AMA + Thoughts by a developer

Mordheim Tactics
Author: Ashton Sanders

I’ve been following the Mordheim Facebook group for a while, waiting until I can start playing again. I found this great summary of thoughts from a developer on what he thinks he did right and wrong with creating the rules for Mordheim, and it’s fantastic!


Update: Joel brought to my attention that this AMA is inside a Closed Facebook Group for Mordheim. You’ll need to join to the group to read the AMA.

Mordheim Campaign 2 – Game 3

Campaign 2,Mordheim Games
Author: Ashton Sanders

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.

Mordheim Campaign 2

Cheesey almost squealed in delight of the thought of sinking his fighting claws into the Orcs who had forced him to retreat.

Mordheim Campaign 2 – Game 2

Campaign 2,Mordheim Games
Author: Ashton Sanders

Crabi the Credible and his warband of Orcs and Goblins were rummaging through the rubble of a collapsed tower.  As he tossed a chunk of cement aside, he hollered at the two orc boyz closest to him. “Hey! It’s been forever. Wher’s the gems?” The boyz looked around trying to find who he was talking to. But before Crabi could give the closest boy a punch to the face, he noticed Durrr, the troll, licking the bark off the remains of a tree.

“DURRR!?! Wat are ya doin’? Get ov’r here… I can’t get you ta do anyth’ng…” said the Orc boss as he hustled over to the drueling troll.

In the shadows two Skaven were quickly scurrying away into the night to report the possible gems in the area.

Mordheim Campaign 2 Begins

Campaign 2,Mordheim Games
Author: Ashton Sanders

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.

AFM – Away From Mordheim

Author: Ashton Sanders

It has been two and a half months since my last post, and I have finally come out of denial. I admit it: I’m taking a break from Mordheim. =(

I was well on my way to making my 2008 target for number of posts, and it has been my intention to get back down to my Mordheim desk and continue building. Although I didn’t think it was possible, life has gotten in the way.

What I’m trying to say is that, although it pains me to admit it, I am officially on a Mordheim break. I hope to get back on top of my other projects in the near future. Feel free to browse through my previous posts until I get back to Mordheim.

Until then,
Ashton Sanders

1 Year of Blogging Mordheim!

General,Random Bin
Author: Ashton Sanders

Today, is the 1st anniversary of my Mordheim Blog (and I still don’t have a logo… tch, tch on me).

I’m so glad I was able to get back into this ridiculously entertaining game we call Mordheim, and this blog has really kept me at it. I really must admit, just making terrain, painting minis and posting on this blog is actually more fun than playing the game. =) Not that playing the game isn’t extremely entertaining; the construction, building and painting are just so rewarding.

Over the last 4 years, I have become quite a blogging fanatic, and even though this is the smallest niche of my blogs (besides my family blog) it is by far the most popular. Thank you for visiting, reading and commenting. Read the Rest of the Post >

I think is the longest incomplete Mordheim project I have ever had. I started this horse cart in Novermber of last year (almost 1 year ago). Here is this almost-complete horse cart as it sits on my desk today:
