    Welcome, Marco! Ever since I played the tabletop in the early 2000s with my local playgroup, I've always wondered why there wasn't a digitization of the game. Now we've got both Mordheim: City of the Damned, and Mordheim: Warband Skirmish! It's a pretty good deal :)

    Welcome aboard (preemptively)! Feel free to ask any questions you might have, and if you encounter any bugs, make a post. I know screenshots helps the team a great deal in terms of reproducing errors, so snapping a quick picture helps (for me on android, holding the power and down volume key takes a screenshot).

    Cheers!

    Hey Marco, and welcome to the forums!

    Just noticed you've dropped me a message so I'll check that in a moment for you.

    Glad you managed to find us. I think a few people have found us through Google now, so it's cool to know that Mordheim fans are interested in a mobile game without even knowing that one has been in the making ;)! I'm sure getting you set up with Beta access will be no problem at all Marco, but I will ask you a few questions to see if you'd have the availability to join the testers team.

    Hello and welcome to the forums, Martin!

    Do you still have Mordheim, and the models you played with? Would be cool to get some new submissions for #MiniatureMonday if you have any models you'd like to show off :p Just pop them over in the "Creative Section".

    Like Morjax said, if you'd like access to the Beta of the game just drop me a direct message by doing the following:
    Click on my name / profile picture > Click on "Profile Page" > Click on the "Information" tab > Click on "Send Message"

    Feel free to look through the forums and give your two cents on any of the topics that are currently being discussed...

    I just realized I have several miniatures at my parents' place: definitely some Possessed and maybe some Skavens. I'll look for them and take some pictures next time I go back to my hometown (if I can find them...).

    I'm Stove!

    I wasn't too old during the Golden age of Tabletop gaming, so I can't regale you with tales of my campaigns or pictures of my pimpin' miniatures. I can say though that I've been fascinated with the depth and complexity of the old Games Workshop specialty games for a few years now, and in the absence of any people to play with in my small town, have satisfied myself with studying PDFs of the rulebooks for games like Necromunda, Gorkamorka, and yeah, Mordheim!

    Like you, I kind of missed out on tabletop gaming and painting those magnificent miniatures. But I have been fascinated with Games Workshop ever since my brother introduced me to the 40k series through the miniatures he had. It has been a pleasure being part of the dev team for just over a year now... and since then I've learnt so much about Mordheim and the fascinating story behind it.

    Hope to see you around the forums more, and I've just noticed your direct message which I'll reply to promptly!

    Evening gentlemen and/or ladies,

    My name's Jim and I've been hooked on Geedubs for the last 20 years at least. I've had a crack at necromunda, mordheim, bloodbowl, gorka Morka and even a stab at the old =][= rules (using 28mm coz I'm cheap). I did have a small detachment of extremely badly painted smurfs at one point but have since replaced them with small numbers of significantly better painted eldar. I am an absolute fiend for 40k fluff but when I saw the opportunity to help you guys develop a mordheim game (saw you mentioned in February's WD) I instantly ate everything I could on YouTube (thanks Morjax) and thought maybe they still need help!

    On the professional side, I am an ISTQB qualified software tester and otherwise, a huge geek.

    Mornin' Jim!

    I think I'm right in thinking that the majority of the team (if not all of us) haven't actually seen the Feb issue of White Dwarf. Definitely need to get my hands on a copy!!

    Feel free to have a look around the forums and join in on any discussions you think sound interesting, we do appreciate every one taking the time out to give their two cents and help toward the development of the game, so if you do end up going out of your way thank you in advance!

    Thanks for joining us any way, and special thanks to Mod Morjax for the gameplay ;). If you check out the "Creative Section" we have other Let's Plays from other content creators there too...

    P.S. If testing appeals to you just drop me a direct message. We're getting closer and closer to the release date but are still actively inviting testers in at the moment.

    Welcome, bud! Ever so happy to provide coverage for the game I've been waiting for for a LONG time (back when we played the tabletop, I was the broken record saying how good this would be on computer - smartphones weren't a thing yet).

    I look forward to facing off against your units! let us know what name you go with se we can keep an eye out, and do give battle reports! As for reporting bugs, I know screen captures are immensely helpful for the team (power button + down volume on my android).

    Welcome and have fun!!

    I'm pretty new to mordheim but not to Tabletop gaming in general. Been playing D&D for 6 years and started 40k last year

    Im just getting into the specialist games, never got into fantasy/sigmar, but Blood Bowl sold me on Skaven and, well, here I am. I still prefer 40k and can't wait for Necromunda, but at least Mordheim can teach me skirmish tactics, as they're different from army scale battles.

    I learned about the mobile game coming so headed this way, hoping to get in on the beta if I can, if not, I'll be buying it for sure.

    Hello guys. I started with Mordheim maybe in 1999, when it appeared in the White Dwarf. I'd been playing since that days, and I have aroun 10 gangs.

    I love this game.

    Well, I must say, I can't wait for this game to be released! I've been a big fan of mordheim for a long time (we used to run a mordheim league at my FLGS years ago, every spring). It will be nice to be able to play on my IPad, as I just picked up the game for PC. It's still as brutal as I remember it, as ne bad roll of the dice can literally turn the tide of battle, and the fortunes of your warband. How will the game work? Will it be top down, isometric, or chase cam view? Or a combination of those?

    It appears to be more similar to an RTS than the over the shoulder third person view the pc game uses.

    Hey all and thanks for introducing yourselves!

    Just out of curiosity where did you hear about us? We recently got featured in this months White Dwarf, so it'd be cool to know how many of you have came from there (if any).

    If any of you would like to learn more about the game just head over to the "Creative Section" and look for the many YouTube let's plays that have been posted there from testers that have been playing the game. Keep in mind though that some of the content shows an older version of the game

    We also still have spots available for testing for those that want to be able to contribute towards the development of the game. If you believe you'll have enough time on your hands to test then feel free to head over to my profile and drop me a direct message.

    Below are a few screenshots I've taken so that you can get a gist of where the game is at, at the moment...

    I heard about you guys from the Mordheim subreddit. I picked up City of the Damned this last week when it was on sale on Steam, and started googling around for tips, and wound up here. I've maybe played 8 battles with my chaos warband so far and still figuring out the mechanics.

    I like the direction you guys went with the art, those characters really pop in the screenshots.

    I'm definitely interested in testing despite being new. I guess if anything, it could get insights from a fairly new player. I'm on iOS, I assume you're using TestFlight? I'll shoot you a PM.

    Thanks!

    I saw the game in my Facebook feed, so I followed the link to the site, and signed up for the Beta testing. I've done a lot of Beta testing for various PC games (some made it to release, some didn't), but this would be my first Beta testing for an IPad app/game. But seeing as release is just a few weeks away, I don't know if you need any more testers, but I'll help out if you need it. If not, I'll impatiently for for its release to the IOS store. Those screenshots look great!

    Thanks for dropping me a PM! Will respond ASAP.

    Glad you're liking the look of the game, hopefully we can get you both in on the action before release ;).
