Someone's been at the online store again. All the useful stuff has been deleted from the Mordheim undead page. The mordheim zombies are okay-search for "zombie" and most pop up. Look for "Dreg" and they're not bad. The Mordheim ghouls are rather sad and very undersized minis-do not buy them.

If you want an undead warband and aren't worried about GW in store compatibility then the Heresy (http://www.heresyminiatures.com/) range is superb. Some of the coolest and most unpleasant ghouls ever plus three rather nice vampires.

I dare to differ. The Dregs are not to my liking. As to the Ghouls, they really are undersized, but I like them more than the Warhammer ones.

There are 3 different Mordheim Vampires: The "lord one" with very wide coat. He is hard to rank up. The "count/thrall one" covers one arm with a cloak. the second hand is separate from palm with sword. Therefore he is easy to convert to have a double handed weapon or a Battle Standard. the nicest Vampire from the Mordheim range is the girl found in the hired swords section.

The generic Warhammer Von Carstein Vampires are possibly the worst GW miniatures ever if you exclude the chaos ogres, chaos trolls and Nagash, that is. The Mordheim ones are good alternative if you want to stick to GW minis. Another GW alternative is to MO Vlad and Isabella.

I second Reaper Miniature, their miniatures for pretty much any fantasy stuff you can think of is superb. Here is their stuff from the game “Warlord”. This is from their Necropolis line.

They also have a lot of stuff in their dark heaven line here is a search page to find what you are looking for. Just type what you are looking for in the search box.

Hope this helps.

The witch hunter captain from Mordheim, painted an appropriately undead complexion, makes a characterful vamp.

No one mentioned the plastic zombie boxed set. Lots of fun bits to be had.

Since all undead started, well, un-undead, any model could be used with some gribbly modification.

Personnaly, I like the Mordheim Ghouls, Zombies, Vampires and Dregs a lot.
But hey, that's just my (humble) opinion!

I agree with the captain making a good vamp. i have had this model for a vamp lord in warhammer for a long time now, as when the new ed of mordheim came out, i thought the model looked great, but at the time i did not have any alliegences to the empire, just the will to destroy them. ahem.... off topic slightly, sorry.

my mordheim vamp is converted, only very slightly though, from the warhammer quest noble model.... i allways find with undead any model you like cannot escape undeath as a zombie, or indeed the blood kiss....

I use mostly wfbl models for my ud warband: Ghouls, zombies, dire wolves and a Carstein thrall. I use a converted empire wizard as a necro and slightly converted lord of the rings goblin prowlers as dregs. The necro and the dregs came out quite well.

I like this fellow, he looks like he's all about business.

@Ethlorien: I believe the Freebooter miniatures, while being very nice, are also wildly out of scale, closer to 35mm than 28mm...

Good to know, thanks. I don't own any myself, but was considering ordering a few for my HoC army.

Thanks,

I'd second Heresy- great miniatures and even better customer service! I picked up one of the werewolves to use as a dire wolf, and there are some pretty good zombies too.
