Mordheim: City Of The Damned Adds Witch Hunters

Witch Hunters have arrived in Mordheim: City of the Damned [official site]. You: I don't know, which hunters? I said, Witch Hunters are in the turn-based tactical Warhammer game as a DLC faction. You: I give up, you tell me, who's here? What? I don't... you mean Who the baseball player? First baseman for St. Louis? Here? You: Wait- are you forcing me into a…

Mordheim – City Of The Damned review

Hi! How are you? Are you having a good December? It’s almost Christmas. That’s probably something to be excited about, I suppose. I tell you something that’s not worth being excited about, and that’s Mordheim [official site]. Probably don’t get anyone Mordheim for Christmas. I’m going to explain why and to try to remain cheerful, but every time I write about or think about Mordheim's…

Mordheim: City Of The Damned Preparing For Launch

Oh, Mordheim [official site], (semi)turn-based Games Workshop adaptation of my dreams. It was love at first sight when we met last year and I've endured the somewhat dissatisfying Early Access period of our courtship in the hope that something special would blossom. With its full release set for an as-yet unannounced date this month, Mordheim is finally looking like the game I remember falling for. The…

Mordheim: City Of The Damned Explained In New Trailer

When I was much younger, primary school age, I was into Games Workshop stuff. By the time I'd reached high school I'd begun to grudgingly disassociate myself with it for fear of being bullied, such was life at the educational establishment I attended in Glasgow. Which is shit, really, because besides anything else I missed the boat with Mordheim: City Of The Damned [official site…

City Of The Slightly Less Damned: Mordheim Phase 6

While I'm in a Games Workshop mood - which is most of the time, and most of that time is spent agonising that I can't afford Games Workshop stuff* - let's have a peek at the new update for Warhammer-themed turn-based strategy-RPG Mordheim: City of the Damned. It's been somewhere near the top of my Yes I Must Make Time For That Somehow list since…

Premature Evaluation: Mordheim: City of the Damned

Each week Marsh Davies bleeds for you in the cold, accursed alleys of Early Access and comes back with any stories he can find and/or a repulsive corruption born of arcane mutagenic powers. This week he and his band of rat-men scuttle through the streets of Mordheim: City of the Damned - a turned-based tactics game set in the world of Warhammer. Fellow Skaven-fancier Adam…

Impressions: Mordheim Early Access

Mordheim: City of the Damned has been on my radar since I first saw it at Gamescom earlier this year. An adaptation of one of Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy spin-offs, it's a tactical game of skirmishing warbands in a chaos-stricken city. I've been poking around the city since Early Access began a few days ago and while the foundations are impressive, it's not quite ready…

The Rat Pack: Mordheim – City Of The Damned

"There are only so many eyes and limbs a unit can lose before they're out." Mordheim: City of the Damned is a squad-based tactical combat game set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe, in which an injured unit might return to the titular chaos-infected city with a pegleg. It's entering Early Access this month and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I've already…

Skaven Time: Warhammer’s XCOMish Mordheim Out Soon

I always get Warhammer spin-off Mordheim confused with that Mike guy from Blizzard. C'mon, Meer, you can master this - it's with a 'd' if it's got ratmen, and with an 'a' if it's infinitely wealthy. Mordheim isn't the biggest name in the Games Workshop back catalogue, but it's definitely one that's ripe with potential for exploring the edges of Warhammer's dark fantasy world. Rather…

Eyes-On: Mordheim – City of the Damned

A warlock with a wooden leg was the highlight of my first day at Gamescom. I didn’t know a huge amount about Mordheim: City of the Damned before I sat down to watch a live demonstration of a typical mission, but half an hour later I was telling anyone who would listen that it deserved far more attention. It’s Warhammer Fantasy with a hint of…

From Tabletop To Desktop: Games Workshop’s Mordheim

Everyone at RPS has their niche, they tell me as I start my first day. We're hyper-specialised predators feasting upon our own corners of the gaming kingdom. Clearly, I suggest, a new adaptation of a Games Workshop wargame would be news for Kieron to sink his grooved fangs into. They nod sagely and turn back to their gilded plates, then remember. Ah no, another mutters,…
