Mordheim Image

I was on the Mordheim Wikipedia Page, and noticed someone added an “okay” image of Mordheim on there, so I decided to create a better one. I had a small photo shoot (with every good Mordheim model and terrain piece I had), and this was the result:

Random Mordheim Goodies

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

Today was a great day for Mordheim.

First, I finally got to play an actual game of Mordheim (except the after-game advancements). A neighbor’s kid has been begging me to play, so I finally made some time, and set up my board. I played as Orcs and Goblins, while he played with my Skaven Warband. We played the Chance Encounter scenario. At the end of the Skaven’s third turn, the orcs had lost 3 of their 8 players, and the Skaven had 4 stunned models on the board, but none out of action. I (the Orcs) was about to destroy the Skaven, but I failed my Rout test…

Competition Results

The Terragenasis competition ended last night, and I just barely took home 2nd place.

1st place went to DragonFlies7033, who created a huge castle that doubled as a DM screen so he, as a Dungeon Master, can keep all his “tricks” hidden from the players. It came out amazingly.

I got 2nd Place, beating out 3rd place by 1 vote.

3rd place went to GeoLinna’s Clock/Dice Tower, which came out amazing.

On another note, I posted some pictures of my dice tower on Board Game Geek, and as of right now, I have three images on the home page! I don’t even believe it.

Thanks to everyone who voted for my dice tower in the competition and to those who thumbed my Dice Tower images on BGG.

TerraGenesis Competition

Author: Ashton Sanders

I have completed my entry for TerraGenesis‘s Fallen Over Competition, and the voting has started! It’s three days into the competition now, and I’m currently in the lead! Yeay! I’m so excited. This competition yielded 11 good entries. 3 or 4 of them are so AWESOME! One guy, Neal, created a “warhound” (large two legged machine kind of like AT-AT’s in StarWars) completely from scratch! I didn’t even know that was possible.

I’m very surprised, but delighted, that I’m in the lead. I hope I can keep it.

This competition has been amazingly fun and entertaining. I’m glad I found out about it. (They have a new one starting each month, so check it out!)

Adding Bases to Terrain

Since my last post about adding bases to buildings, I’ve done a lot of thinking about it. I’ve compiled more points, and put them below:

Good Things About Using a Base on Your Buildings and Terrain:

  1. Stability: With a base, you don’t even have to worry about the stability of your large building. Just glue it down.
  2. Debris and Junk: Read the Rest of the Post >

Warhammer Box Has Arrived!

General,Mordheim Models
Author: Ashton Sanders

After a week of nerve-racking waiting, my Warhammer starter set has arrived! It was apparently too big to fit inside my mail box, so the mailman just had it balanced on top of it. That’s definitely the first time that has happened to me.

I eagerly brought it in and spread out the contents of it. (If you didn’t read from earlier, I’m planning on using these models for my Orc and Human warband.)

Here is a slightly out of focus picture of the back of the Warhammer starter box:

Warhammer Box Set - Back Cover

You can see in this picture sets of 4 regiments of 18 guys. From Left to Right: Orc Warriors, Orc Archers, Human Riflemen and Human Spearmen. This box also includes a Human canon and an Orc War Chariot and a General for each.

Here’s a picture of all of these models still in their sprues:

Warhammer Box Set - Contents

At the top of this picture, you can see two stacks of 4 sprues each. These are the regiments of warriors; one stack for the humans and one for the orcs.

Here’s a close up of the Humans and Orcs Sprues:

Warhammer Human Sprue - Riflemen and Spearmen

Warhammer Orc Sprues - Archers and Warriors

I’m looking at selling or trading some of these sprues as this is more than enough for two warbands of each species, and I’m only putting together 1 of each.

Mordheim Sprues Ariving Tomorrow!

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

I received a note in my mailbox late on Saturday night saying that they had a box for me at the post office! Which has to be my Warhammer Starter Set that I shopped victoriously for!

I’m very excited to get the box, but since today was Sunday, the post office was closed. So I’m having to wait almost 48 hours before I can get my package. It’s like Christmas; waiting for my presents. But that’s okay. I have patience, and the “Fallen Over Competition” is keeping me very busy/entertained until my package arrives.

I think the first thing I’m going to do, is put together a nice, well-painted Human model to display with my buildings for the sake of scale.

Enjoy,
Ashton Sanders

One Month of Mordheim

General
Author: Ashton Sanders

Today, is the end of the first month of my Mordheim in Montana Blog. I have posted at least one post per day for this first month. Now that I have accomplished that, I don’t think I’ll be keeping it up at that speed, but I’ll update it regularly.

Here’s to many more great Months of Mordheim in Montana.

(Today, I am ranked number #17 on Google for the keyword Mordheim.)
