Now that Citys of death has been released for 40k, is it possible to have a cityfight kind of game based in fantasy battle?

I think it would be good you could take, say, light infantry, individual characters and complete tasks around the city. And of course you could use walls, houses and other placements to mount ambushes, shelter from harm ets.

That would be pretty cool - combine it with the rumoured plastic WFB buildings and you've got yourself a pretty cool bundle!

You could have evil objective, like poisoning wells, or destroying barracks, and defender objectives like securing squares and lighting beacons for re-enforcements etc.

**EDIT** 2,222th post! Woo!

It's called 'Mordheim'

Mordheim's too small scale mate, he's thinking Rome:total war style... not the man to man fighting seen in that brilliant oldie of the specialist games. (Go middenheim plunderers! W00t brace of handguns!)

It is called eighter Mordheim or Warhammer:Siedge, depending on scale :P. On such a large scale, when city walls were breached defenders were shuting themselves in citadel / keep instead of chaotic cityfighting. Attacker had to besiedge them there again if they wanterd to capture city or just contain them there if they wanted just to loot city.

Of course, the new buldings may be used in intersting Siedge scenario in which city's keep is besiedged, and area around fortress is ruined city, not open plains. And of course, we may well expect GW to produce some unbelievasble excuse for Warhammer armies to fight in city terrain, just to sell bulidings to WFB players.

How about implementing the rules for Lustria, or more specifically, the Loose Formation rules from Lustria, couple that with some thorough rules as to how to destroy buildings or building sections, and you've got yourself a nice little game.

General's Compendium has a couple of scenarios in the end for fighting in cities, may I recommend checking it out?

It's gotten me hooked allready, I'm planning on building an Imperial Guard army themed arround the Red Army at the Battle for Stalingrad, lots of men, no fancy weapons, a commissar or five, snipers and a Hellhound playing the Russian Anthem, and that is in 600 pts, in 1k, I will be fielding a full unit of Ratling Snipers, a block of 40 conscripts, 2 Basilisks, over 40 Guardsmen etc.

how about warhammer skirmish?
i am sure you can incorporate it into city fight,
but as long as there are solid blocks of infantry it will be to hard to control

Well, after 7th ed comes out, there may be changes in scenarios. To which there may be expansions in lieu of said Cities of Death, like to fight in cities, with similar styled "stratagems" and other special little bits as per Cities of Death.

To which I would love, especially to enact some cityfighting HE and DE in Arnheim, and maybe if I ever get Empire, to put up a defense in the busiest of cities against hordes of zombies or chaos. It's an idea, a cool idea, to have it as its own expansion, but we will see in due time I suppose.

as grief bringer said, there are rules for a siege campaign in the generals compendium, from storming the walls, to raiding, and city sacking. from memory it basically incorporates the attacker trying to burn everything down and getting nasty surprises from the defenders when they enter certain buildings...if you want a really entertaining city raid your best bet would be to make up your own rules though.

you could easily convert the mordheim rules for a lot of this,

Or take the warhammer squirmish rules for a start.

This makes the most sense, other than using the rules/ideas already given in the Generals Compendium.
