MORDHEIM: CITY OF THE DAMNED UNVEILED WITH SCREENSHOTS
Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor today proudly unveil the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic Mordheim. Set in the Warhammer world's decimated Empire city, Mordheim: City of the Damned is a turn-based tactical game where you lead warbands into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive.

After the Comet of Sigmar crashed on Mordheim, the City of Damned turned into a terrifying battlefield where rival warbands fight fiercely for the control of key neighborhoods, looking for glory and fortune by acquiring the very valuable Wyrdstone fragments.

Pick your warbands from iconic Mordheim factions - Sisters of Sigmar, Possessed, Skaven, Mercenaries from the Empire, and many more - and lead your troops to battle. Recruit new units, equip them with enhanced gear. Evolve and customize your warband with the experience gained from each successful mission, transforming them into a terrifying force on the battlefield.

Devise the best strategy to annihilate your rivals. If you fail, some of your units might lose a limb... or worse. Keep in mind that in Mordheim: City of the Damned, a dead unit is lost forever! Consider the environment when formulating your battle strategy, exploiting the unique buildings, ruins or the layout of the streets. Deploy your troops carefully and anticipate the actions of your adversaries to set up ambushes! Organize ingenious battle plans where the talents of your units will be as important as your own luck during key moments of combat.

Loot items and weapons hidden in the ruins, or steal those of fallen opponents. Survive the dangers that abound in the City of the Damned and collect as many Wyrdstones as you can, but remain ever vigilant. Mordheim is one of the most treacherous places in the Warhammer world!

In these epic battles where fame and glory await, your strategy will definitely be your best ally! Visit the four corners of the City of the Damned to complete multiple missions in the solo campaign, or challenge other players in enthralling multiplayer modes.

Riches and infamy await you late 2014 in Mordheim: City of the Damned!

I was getting a bit excited about this, awesome setting, good graphics and then saw two little words that kill my desire faster than Maggie Thatcher pulling a goatsie: turn based.

Fuck that shit. Pity, that looks like it could be quite cool.

I don't find them engaging personally. They don't hold my attention, the system is quite clunky when it's used in video games I find.

Turn based to me is a bit dated, but the game looks fun! Cannot actually wait for this!

It couldnt be as soul destroying as Rites of War in my eyes.

I prefer turn based strategy games personally,especially if they have multi-player. That may just be my old school board gaming coming through though.

Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

How the hell would one do a none turn based mordheim? Hell I personally think it would be unplayable if it was RT as the penalty of losing are often so high that a few seconds would be the difference between having to restart the game, and experiencing a huge win fall.

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

Not huge on TBGs, but I'll keep an eye on this. With luck, they'll have an open beta. If it's anything like BB, the game should be solid, mechanically anyway.
