    Slings overpowered?

    +1 to target's armor save, -1 to target's injury roll. Good enough :)

    Necromunda and Gorka Plog and future plans

    For the bounty hunter: The eye is naturally drawn to the color red, and there's already a lot competing for attention -- the yellow and black boltgun, the red loincloth, the white streak in the hair (assuming you went that route). So I'd vote for just a gunmetal bolt pistol, with some small...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    The heroes' serious injury chart always did seem to make more sense for hired swords -- they're essentially hired heroes. It could work for the Rat Ogre, although several entries -- Robbed, Arm Wound, Madness, Hardened, Horrible Scars -- might either not apply or be redundant (it has no...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    Taking a break from softening up Skaven and their overpowered slings, one glaring weakness for the Horned Rat's children is the large, expensive target known as the Rat Ogre. It's hard to justify 210 gc for a single henchman that has a 1-in-3 chance of dying each time it goes OOA in a battle...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    In truth, the disadvantage of 1 shot vs. 2 shots (with a -1 to-hit penalty) isn't huge. It's usually a 1-in-2 chance to hit vs. a 5-in-9 chance (including a 1-in-9 chance to hit twice). And it requires both not moving and having a target at half-range or less. For Sisters and Skaven, an enemy...

    Wanted: Mordheim Professor for YakTribe

    I'm happy to help if needed. Maybe spafe and I could be co-professors or whatever :cool:

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    Or just nerf slings so they are a little less likely to wound/injure than short bows. But as for game balance, yeah, you either have to jack up the price of slings to a higher cost than a mace or a shield, or nerf them so they just give the close-combat warbands that use them a low level of...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    Right, the digital rulebook released by GW is the one I'm using. No doubt, slings are very dangerous and CAN kill, but after watching the videos above, I'd still rather have a rock or even a steel ball coming at me than an arrow from a bow (not that either one sounds appealing). If the sling...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    Yeah, I think most of these changes address the most problematic issues that created a clear superiority for dual-wielding over using a weapon and shield or using a 2-handed weapon. 1) Penalize the extra attack 2) Boost the value of a shield, and 3) Make 2-handed weapons more useful by...

    Thanks for the Lexicon, Malo

    Those files are great, and with GW's new website making it inescapably clear (as if it wasn't before) that Specialist Games are dead to them, this resource is fantastic.

    As for guns, if you cut the price of armor (we drop it by 40%) then more people buy it and guns become more useful with their added armor penetration. I think historically, penetrating armor was really the driving force behind the development of firearms. We also make shields +2 in close...

    Mordheim Community Edition?

    We play that slings give a +1 save (a 6+ save if you normally have no save), and they are -1 to injury rolls (1-3 knocked down, 4-5 stunned, 6 out of action).

    A Mordheim video game has just been announced!

    Wow, wasn't expecting this one...

    First!

    Yeah, that last part is the best. And you can print as much as you need at relatively low cost. This set by Dave Graffam is also good for Mordheim. Dirt cheap and very easy, too. http://www.rpgnow.com/product/93234/SlotFit-Ruins-BUNDLE?manufacturers_id=2985

    First!

    Yeah, it's too bad they have stopped producing new sets. I mostly used their ground tiles, but just that is worth the price to me. Much faster and cheaper than alternatives like this -- http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440312a&prodId=prod730814
