Chaos God Rules


During support and continuing development of Mordheim, Toumas Pirinen (creator, development team and editor) gave alternative rules in the forward of the Town Cryer. The following content is unofficial but sanctioned:

"the current parry rule could be replaced by a rule which states that a warrior capable of parrying an enemy attack may force his opponent to re-roll one of his successful hits. If he would normally be able to make two parries, he may impose this re-roll on two of the attacks. If you wish to try this method on the battlefield, you may do so with my blessing." - TC4

"Middenheim warbands should be allowed to make a single one of their members a berserker. This model would be affected by the rules of Frenzy." and "should a Vampire acquire a Tome of Magic and the Arcane Lore skill, it is only logical to think that Vampire could study Necromancy magic instead of Lesser magic." - TC5

"Perhaps the following chart can be helpful if your campaign is deteriorating because of cowardly players whose only mission is to run away as quickly as possible." - TC7

Warriors in warband Warriors out of action

Beastmen raiders first appeared in TC7 and was later reprinted in the empire in flames supplement.
