Warhammer Box Has Arrived!

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:

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:

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 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!

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.

Mordheim Shopping Victoriously

Living in Montana means my closest neighbor is 3 miles away, and the closest Mordheim Player is a couple hundred miles away and the closest Games Workshop isn’t in this state. So if I’m ever going to play Mordheim, it will probably be with people who haven’t played before and don’t have their own warband. So it is basically required that I have enough warbands to play with when that blue moon comes around that I can play with someone.

(If you are ever near flathead lake, drop me a line, and we can play a game or 3. =])

Currently, I have my old Skaven warband and my brother’s old Orc and Goblin warband, and since humans/empire warbands should be the most popular in a destroyed human city, I had bought the Mordheim starter set when I first started playing, but I traded the humans off to a friend for his Skaven sprues. Since I didn’t have any humans, I thought it important that I get a human warband. This started my search through eBay to find a good deal on a Mordheim human warband. Eventually I found what I was looking for: The greatest Mordheim Deal ever!

Warhammer Box Set

I found an old Warhammer Starter Box and a Warhammer Rulebook with a human army and an Orc and Goblin army! It’s not for sale by Games Workshop any more, so I couldn’t find any specifics as to what exactly is in it. But if it’s anything like the current Warhammer Starter Box, it’ll have about 109 models, which is more than enough for four warbands! I could probably get 6 starting warbands out of it.

Of course, it is an opened box, and some of the larger models have already been glued together, but the box definitely looks pretty full. I ended up paying (with shipping) less than I would have paid for the starter box alone (and I got a free rulebook)! Now I’ll be able to make some different human warbands. I’m very excited to get this box full of goodies!

I finally paid out some money for this Mordheim game. =]
