It uses normal scale figures and you don't play armies rather you play small warbands.

Yep, you play small warbands. Remember it is set about 500 years before the current warhammer time, there is no Emperor on the throne so the Empire is divided; Marienburgers, Reiklanders and Middenheimers are all separate bands.

Official warbands are:

* Averland Mercenaries (Empire)
* Beastmen Raiders (Beastmen)
* Carnival of Chaos (Chaos)
* Cult of the Possessed (Chaos)
* Dwarf Treasure Hunters (Dwarfs)
* Kislevite Warband (Empire)
* Marienburg Mercenaries (Empire)
* Middenheim Mercenaries (Empire)
* Orcs & Goblins Hordes (Orcs)
* Ostander Mercenaries (Empire)
* Reikland Mercenaries (Empire)
* Sisters of Sigmar (Empire)
* Skaven Clan Eshin Warband (Skaven)
* Von Carstein Vampires (Undead)
* Witch Hunters (Empire)

order the kit, its a battle box. Comes with all you need, rules, cardboard terrain, etc.

and best of all, regiment boxes give oyu pretty much everything you need for a starting Warband

And even the more experienced warbands have only a limited number of members (15 for most, 20 Skaven).

There are rules for a few other warbands, Dark-Elfes, High-Elves, Tomb-Kings, Lizardmen, Arabia,...
In fact you can play nearly every Warhammer-Army in Mordheim. In my Playergroup we use Mordheim in Campaigns for smaller Battles(Scirmish), so you have all the ways to play. Its one of the best games in the Specialist Games Range, and i play it more than normal Warhammer Games.

im also thinking of starting mordheim, pausing my feral orks at 1000 so i can play medusa 5.
ive downloaded almost all the pdfs on the site, read the rulebook and all that jazz. one of my store's employees convinced me to do so, as i said i was going to start fantasy, but i think id have more fun with mordheim, at least to start out.
now, what is special about each army, it seems theyre mostly the same. and also, whats the best way to pick a warband, model looks or what?
also, are undead worth playing, as half the army cant get exp or skills or anything?

Undead are EXTREMELY powerful at the beginning of a campaign, for one reason:

The vampire.

S/he starts at S/T4 with two wounds. That makes a big difference, especially if your opponents are humans. Also, s/he moves faster than most other models.

Another benefit to the undead are ghouls. They are pretty hard to kill at the beginning of a campaign.

I don't have any experience with an Undead warband in the later stages of a campaign (rating >150-200), but I can tell you they can be very deadly when starting out. Load up on heroes (Vampire, Necro, 3 Dregs). While dregs may not look like much, once they get some games under their belts they start to hold their own.
