Fan-created Additions, Modifications, and
Killer Shrike and contributors where
Back in late 1998, 1999, and the first half
of 2000 my gaming group of the time and
I played a little game called Mordheim.
It was a great small unit tactics fighter
with solid roots in the Warhammer Fantasy
setting that someone like myself with a
long association with the property could
really appreciate. It had good models, interesting
warbands, and the sets shown in White Dwarf
in its debut were awesome!
A tight-knit circle of us started playing
casually, it quickly swelled into a campaign,
and then eventually faded off as these things
At the peak it was my main gaming outlet
for somewhere between three and four months
as I was between RPG campaigns and I had
lost interest in Warhammer 40k with the
latest edition release of the time. An obsessive
rules tinkerer and content creator, it didnt
take me long to start dinking around with
Mordheim and I started turning out new hired
swords, items, skills, and warband lists.
Many were extracted / inspired from old
Warhammer Fantasy RPG material, others were
constructed out of elements of other games,
and some were new but in the spirit of Mordheim.
I had a lot of fun doing it, and in fact
got involved with some other fan contributers
on a couple of message boards of the time.
Fairly soon I had a large body of work put
together, so I posted it online on my website
of the time. But all things come to an end
and we moved on to other games; Mordheim
wasn't forgotten -- a few of us would reminisce
about it often enough -- but nor was it
played any more. Since then I've changed web providers a few
times and domains once, but I kept the old
Mordheim web content up, more because it
took no effort than anything else. Sure
the pages were a product of their time and
were ugly bare HTML circa turn of the century,
but what the hell, might be useful to someone
Pushing 8 years later I hooked up some new
analytics software to my site that gives me better
details on specific page use and unique
hits and after letting it run for a couple
of weeks you can imagine my suprise to see
that the unformatted, old, archived Mordheim
material was getting a good deal of traffic.
So, I decided to take a few hours and upgrade
the look and feel a bit so that its not
so fugly. I didn't spend much time on it,
so apologies if you run into areas that
are poorly laid out, but whoever of you
are still looking at this material, enjoy
the upgrade and I'm glad to know that some
people are still getting satisfaction out
of a very fine game!
