Mordheim: City of the Damned is the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic tabletop game 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.

At the moment I cannot get into any action on Mordheim: City of the Damned - I have between the minimum and the recommended PC - but the loading icon just keeps on spinning and nothing happens. This may be an error with my system but I have tried it on 2 separate PCs and had the same results on each.

I have been able to take a look around at the possible War Bands:
Human Mercenaries - Reiklanders are looking to better themselves in various ways while trying to put Grand Prince Siegfried on the Throne.
Sisters of Sigmar - Possibly/probably Witches who live on the rock in the middle of the River where they have a heavily fortified convent.
Skaven - of Clan Eshin, are an Assassin class - masters of stealth and murder.
Cult of the Possessed - they want to return the Wyrdstone to the Pit and gain the favour of the Shadowlord.
I selected the Sisters of Sigmar which took me to a screen showing various options still to be opened as well as some that can be viewed - Hodeout, Shop, Smuggler's Den, Campaign, and Skirmish management and Player progression, the latter two leading on to more screens from where you can gain information on the Heroes and the Skirmish possibilities without actually being able to do anything at the moment.

When this game becomes fully operational it looks like it is going to be a good evaluation of Games Workshop's famed board fantasy war game. I hope then I will be able to review the complete game, but for now it is worth looking at anything you can find online about it.
