    I started playing Mordheim : Warband Skirmish about 2 weeks ago. I was suprised to find out so little informations on the Wiki. I've done a lot of update on it this week, but the community's help would be appreciate to fill out the blanks. Particularly concerning the Factions, Leader and Henchmen for Middenheim and Undead (don't have these, so I'm ignorant of their details).

    Check it out : http://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Mordheim:_Warband_Skirmish_Wiki

    Also, I would like to add a Strategies page on the Wiki. There's none, and that's what surprised me the most. I've already posted my Marienburg's Strategy on that Faction's page, but this section should be moved to its own page, along with all other proven strategies out there. To that end, can you please contribute by either posting here your strategies, or better yet : directly on the Wiki! :)

    Have a look at the Factions page : https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Factions
    You can then look up each Faction by clicking on its name. They're all done, except for Middenheim and Undead. So check out the type of information provided on the other Factions, the format I used, and just do the same with Undead... Pretty please? :)

    Hey Cyberaddict, thanks for all the work on the Wiki! I'll gather the information for the missing parts and I'll send it over to you.

    I've reformated the main page and the Wiki is now sorted the same way you would browse the app. All the pages for the various menu options have been added, and the Character Sheets have be reformated to look like the table top version of the game (see Leader and Henchmen). You may want to look at the Missions page, as there is a little trick I posted there. I still need data for the Undead and Middenheimers. If anyone has them, please edit the Wiki on the right pages (Factions, Leader and Henchmen). Thanks.

    Edit : and if Legendary Games want to reward me with some free Fate tokens, I wouldn't say no (on the off hand that it hasn't crossed your mind). :)

    I’d be willing to make a significant contribution to the wiki when I get some time. I actually have some leveling pathways for various combinations of units written down somewhere so I can throw those up too.

    Thanks! I've just created an Archetypes page (with the unfamous, but very deadly, Skaven Star Thrower). I think it will be the best place for you to post some skill combinations...
    https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Archetypes

    Edit : Added an entry for Archetypes under Strategies, Tips and Tricks... https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Strategies

    Added the Recon Archetype : https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Archetypes

    Is the Tank a different unit than the Recon? I realise the Recon is heavily focused on defense... but maybe the Tank will be even more focused? Is the Tank even a playable Archetype in Mordheim? Soaking up damage is nice, but no units can do so for others in this game. I mean, opponent will always have the choice to target another unit... is that why a Tank is a valid strategy, so it can get ignored and close in? And if the Tank is not ignored, much ressources must be spent on dealing with it?

    I'm guessing the Damage Dealer is an entirely different Archetype than the Tank. But like I said previously, I'm not at all into melee units, and would much prefer to have the community's input in finishing up this page.

    I'm done with all the spells, except Necromantic Magic :
    https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Arcane_Lore
    https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Magic_of_the_Horned_Rat
    https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Prayers_of_Sigmar
    1. If someone can please double check, and eventually add Necromantic Magic, that would be much appreciated.
    2. Also, I'm guessing many spells should be updated with informations that only ever appeared on the forum or Discord. If these details can be added, the community will only be better at this game.
    3. Jesse Shaffer should be contributing soon to the wiki (leveling pathways for various combinations of units).
    4. I still need the community's help in designing the Tank and Damage Dealer Archetypes. https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.wikia.com/wiki/Archetypes. I also added the Swashbuckler Archetype. I guess this is a kind of Damage Dealer that won't equip Two-Handed Weapons (because of lack of access to Strength Skills, like Zealots and Marienburg Warriors) and will focus on Speed instead. Again, if the community can help me designing this Archetype (or any others that you can think of) and the first 10-12 skills needed for that role, that would be great.
    5. I would like to add a page to the Wiki about balancing the right party. What should be the Ranged vs Melee ratio? Is it better to go all-in on a strategy (100% Snipers, or Tanks, or else)? What's the ideal party mix for you? (ex. : 2 Recons, 2 Snipers, 2 Tanks and 2 Damage-Dealers).
    6. How picky are you with Henchmen and Hired Swords stats? Do you just pass until the right guy shows up? Or you hire anyway and will fix the model while it levels up?
    7. In what order do you hire Henchmen and Hired Swords? Do you rush in with Fate points so you can level up the whole team at the same time? Or do you slowly raise your treasury to buy them with gold crowns? At what point do you stop picking better Equipment and just wait until you have the right amount to buy that expensive Hired Sword?

    While I’ve had the opportunity to only make some modest contributions to the Wiki thus far, Cyberaddict has single handedly put forth a shocking amount of effort. His effort, generosity, and enthusiasm are highly laudable and he should be commended.

    You might consider adding a tip about when to sell shards. There was a thread about it last year, and my post on the values I saw for a solo warband member was at the bottom of page 2. In summary, I only sell 1 shard after most missions to get the double value, but when 8+ shards pile up, I sell 8 at a time to clear them out at a good average price.
    Here's the thread:

    I’ve been away for more than a year, and many things have changed. It’s sad to see that the wiki hasn’t been updated thoroughly. I’ve added the Elf Ranger yesterday, along with it’s Special Skills. Somebody, more knowledgeable than I, should look it up and correct the numbers if they are wrong.

    I will also need help with the Dwarves, Possessed and Sisters. Anything else has changed since then? Last Update I recall was the Halfling... yes, it’s been that long

    For elves the LD is also not correct, mine has a natural 77. I haven't seen any higher but there could be.

    I did some update on the wiki, on the Strategies page : reroll starting Henchmen, cloning best Henchman, counter strategy to the Alpha Strike, etc. : https://mordheim-warband-skirmish.fandom.com/wiki/Strategies

    I’ll try to eventually update data on the Sisters. Contrary to what the wiki currently says, Novices don’t have the stats of Zealots...

    I need help for the Dwarves and Possessed description. I don't have these two Factions (and don't intend to buy them ; one is not compatible with my playstyle, the other with my morality - Undead were far stretched and actually a mistake). Can you please check out how I described the other Factions, and cook up something similar for these two? If you can't edit the wiki, just post here and I'll do it myself.

    I've started the process of completely reviewing the wiki. I'll try to have an instinctive format, so that things will be where you actually find them in the app. I'll also add screenshots, and will lighten the opening page (too much stuff there). For now, I've reviewed these :
    If you notice any mistake, or have suggestions, please let me know.

    Move page has also been revised. Can someone please confirm what happens at 4 Weight (Gromril + shield)? I'm pretty sure about the rest, but feel free to add anything that's missing and should be there.
