First off I will not actually be writting a review of any of these articles. On the surface it seems even lighter than previous issues having only two downloads. Beyond that I do not feel I am at all qualified to do so, and do not have any reason than posting it here to even look at them. Please someone who has played or currently plays Mordheim review it.


Fanatic Online Issue 91

Well this issue was a very long time coming, and I apologise for that – it’s been a heck of a month!
Anyway, let’s focus on Fanatic Online and this issue is a Mordheim special. A Mordheim Nemesis Crown to be exact. For most of the year, the little known group calling themselves the Mordheim Nemesis Crown Development team have been generating top quality content so Mordheim Players can take part in this year’s Warhammer Global Campaign. The files themselves are a bit rough and ready in presentation terms, an unavoidable symptom of the already-mentioned packed month. I’d have loved to have been able to spend more time on these to present this great content in an optimal format. So, what do these files contain? The first PDF contains the Terrain and Wilderness rules and the scenarios needed to play Mordheim in the Great Forest where the Nemesis Crown is set. Read it now (http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/NemesisCrown1.pdf).

The second file contains seven new unofficial/house rule Warbands tailors to factions that would be operating within the Great Forest at the time of the Nemesis Crown. Read it now (http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/NemesisCrown2.pdf).

The final file contains Hired Swords, Dramatis Personae and Random Events. Read it now (http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/NemesisCrown3.pdf).

All three files together give Mordheim players a complete supplement for joining in with the Nemesis Crown campaign. Don’t forget to register and report all your Mordheim Nemesis games at the Nemesis Crown website.

Those of you who entered our Necromunda scenario competition should expect some results, hopefully next week. Talking of competitions it’s time for a new one, and it’s time for Blood Bowl coaches to ready their keyboards and wet their paint brushes.

For this competition I’m looking for a brand new Blood Bowl poster boy (or girl or thing). As the Blood Bowl star players of old retire or get killed in action, the insatiable player agents look to the younger generation for the ‘next big thing’.

To enter the competition I’d like you to design a new Star Player. This could one you have designed from fresh or a hoary player from your existing team. Your entry should include full rules and stats, a background section of up to 400 words and an optional picture of your star player (this could be a drawing if your artistically inclined or a scan of a painted model).

Send your entries to Fanaticsubmissions@games-workshop.co.uk. The closing date for the competition is the 17th of August. The winner will get a boxed team and a Star Player blister of his choice. They’ll be some runners up goodies as well – Good luck!

Warmaster players don’t forget about our upcoming Grand Tournament. The event is being held on the 4th and 5th of August at Warhammer World, Nottingham, UK. Tickets are available from GW Direct by phoning 0115 91 40 000.

For now,
Andy @ Fanatic

I dont really feel like commenting on the articles other than to say its sad that as late as these fanatic articles are Andy still says he didnt put in the time to actually clean the rough edges off them, just stuck them up. And secondly that its a shame that they all cover Mordheim instead of a mix of SGs so that more people might have found something they were interested in.
I made the same remarks on the specialst games forum but got enough crap for it I decided I'm done even going there to check and see if anything worthwhile might appear. Its just not worth it, the SG forum is practicly dead nowadays anyway.

but Grim, remember one of the reasons given for the shift to the (so-called) monthly format? Increased quality.

*Feel the quality*

How late is this, anyway? I stopped looking for updates three weeks ago.

Did you really expect something different? I do not understand why they pretend to offer support at all... :rolleyes:

Have fun,
