Dragged into Turbolasers Episode 62: Mordheim 2019 with Echoes of Imperium

Mordheim 2019!

We welcome Alexander Winberg (of Echoes of Imperium) back to the podcast to discuss the Mordheim 2019 collaborative event that he organized. Time is spent discussing how the idea to celebrate Mordheim's 20th anniversary came about. Considerable time is spent talking about how you can get involved in similar events, stressing the importance of getting out there and presenting your work on social media and commenting on the work of those whom you admire. The origin of 28 magazine is commented on, with a consideration towards how it might help shape the Inq28 and AoS28 movements in the future. New collaborative projects are mentioned liked Ondroma, Gelida, and Primogenitor. Finally, we end the episode by talking about everyone's favorite moments from the Mordheim 2019 event, both in game and outside of it.

Gelida: Revisiting some old conversions

Into the frozen wastes!

Recently, a group of talented hobbyists gathered to play the first in a series of events set on the frigid death world Gelida. Created by Cody Taylor (magos_buer on Instagram), Gelida is a long forgotten Imperial world that plunged into an ice age sometime around the time of the Great Crusade. Some of its bravest inhabitants venture into the snow-swept wastes in robotic suits, searching for supplies to keep the planet’s few Hive-cities functioning. In the last few months, our Instagram feeds have been filled with all manner of awesome snow-covered mechs and warriors in heavy duty harsh-weather gear for the Gelida events (#gelida40k). Some of the creations from Rougefalcon5 really caught our eye, particularly a few models created from the Imperial Guard Scion kit. They reminded us of some models we converted years back (here, here, and here), soon after the blog started, just as we were venturing into the world of Inq28. Looking through our model cases, we found them as we left them unpainted and unfinished. In honor of Gelida, we decided to modify the models to fit within the setting and send them out to some of the people involved in the games!

Mordheim 2019: Using Ana Polanšćak's Witch Hunters at Mordheim 2019

In all these days will a famine lay upon all of your lands, and a plague upon all of your people.

This article was published previously on Echoes of Imperium, describing Greg's thoughts about Mordheim and the Witch Hunter warband that Ana Polanšćak built for him to use at the Mordheim 2019 event.

I started into the miniature wargaming hobby not long before Mordheim was released. Being fairly young, and lacking a disposable income, I was not able to play it at the time. That did not stop me from spending many an hour reading about it in the pages of White Dwarf magazine. Something about the setting really stuck with me, and felt very unique, even for the Warhammer Fantasy setting. It was not until much later that I finally latched on to what it was that made it so distinctive.
