If you still haven't had enough of Warhammer and Games Workshop on your mobile devices, then check out Mordheim: Warband Skirmish [$3.99], which released today. The game is based on the classic tabletop game from the late 90s and brings the miniature game to your tablet and mobile phones. You'll have to lead your Warbands through different encounters, collecting along the way valuable shards from the comet that destroyed the city of Mordheim. You will, of course, get to customize your Warbands as you see fit, and try to show the world that you're the coolest of them all.

The game is all about turn-based PvP combat, and it will launch with three Mercenary factions—Reikland, Middenheim, and Marienburg—with others following as DLC. The developers are planning on bringing all the factions from the board game to the digital version, which is good news. The game is $3.99 and should be fun for those who've played the original board game. Hop over to our forum thread if you're looking for early impressions.

        Thanks for the heads up. I am still a bit confused. Does this game have a campaign or story mode? Can i play it single.player? Can i play it offline? Tks for the help

        It is more like a turn based moba. The story revolves around what happens to your band of men as you go in each day looking for treasure. Each time you go in there is a battle against another player. It can be played offline with the ai controlling the other player.

      Also, it's a wargame on tabletop. The heretic is in the details.

    I've never played the original of this... is it anything like a fantasy version of necromunda?

    • Kamakazie

      Yep, that's pretty much exactly what it is.

      • ac166

        Awesome!

  • Kbom

    Planning on bringing all the factions from the board game? I've never played it, but I have to wonder why. It's (perhaps) one thing to develop additional content later, but quite another to take a complete product, slice it up, and offer it up piecemeal as an app with additional DLC purchases later.

    Just saying it's always wise to be wary of such things and look carefully before spending your money. Such behavior continues only if you blindly support it.

      I think it is just set up like the table top game where you get enough to play with in the starting set and if you want more you buy more.
