Quayside[edit | edit source]

01-Quayside.png
Foggy, gloomy and unpredictable are three words that best describe the Quayside. With all its docks open to the River Stir, anyone or anything can land inside the walls of Mordheim.

The Quayside appears in every faction's single-player campaign. The map often features barrels of explosives which must be collected and placed in certain locations to thwart an enemy faction's plans, for example collapsing sewer tunnels to prevent skaven from accessing the area or destroying barges to stop human mercenaries transporting wyrdstone.

The Quayside is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Wharf Rats - Human Mercenaries Act I, Part I

Dock Whallopers - Skaven Act I, Part I

River Raiders - Sisters of Sigmar Act I, Part II

Rat Hunt - Cult of the Possessed Act I, Part III

Of Rats and Mutants - Witch Hunters Act I, Part I

Grave Fog - Undead Act I, Part IV

Temple of Sigmar[edit | edit source]

02-TempleOfSigmar.png
Untouched by the devastation of the Twin-Tailed comet, the Temple of Sigmar of the Merchant District still stands tall and strong. Outside its hallowed walls however, chaos and destruction reign.

The Temple of Sigmar appears in every faction's single-player campaign, with the objective usually to re-dedicate it to the player faction's god or gods: Sigmar for Human Mercenaries and Sisters of Sigmar, the Great Horned Rat for the Skaven and the Chaos Gods for Cult of the Possessed.

The Temple of Sigmar is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Great Library[edit | edit source]

03-GreatLibrary.png
Once known as a tremendous repository of knowledge, the Great Library of Mordheim is now nothing but a decaying structure teeming with chaos, destruction, and unspeakable terrors that could make anyone lose their sanity.

The Great Library appears in every faction's single-player campaign. The objective is often to recover an important book, such as an historical treatise that could aid the faction's patron or a notebook containing dark spells that the player's faction can use. The library's levels are very broken up and travel between them is only possible through coloured portals on the ground, or in a few cases, jumping down from one to the other. Unlike most maps, the single-player campaign version of the Great Library does not feature an enemy warband, but rather a number of hostile daemons and a unique enemy character named Curator Waldemar.

The Great Library is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Bookworms - Human Mercenaries Act I, Part III

Reading Frenzy - Skaven Act II, Part I

Eldritch Lore - Sisters of Sigmar Act I, Part IV

The Eye of Change - Cult of the Possessed Act I, Part IV

Loathsome Lore - Witch Hunters Act I, Part II

Lothar's Legacy - Undead Act I, Part I

Marketplace[edit | edit source]

04-Marketplace.png
Once, the Marketplace was the heart of commerce in Mordheim. The merchant stalls overflowed with trade goods from all over the world. Very little remains now that the city has been repeatedly plundered. Who knows what can be found in this now chaos-infested place.

The Marketplace appears in every faction's single-player campaign. It is largely covered in pools of acid which the player warband must navigate and also features the Manticore, the most powerful monster in the game.

The Marketplace is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Birthday Present - Human Mercenaries Act II, Part IV

The Stone-eater - Skaven Act II, Part IV

Creature of Chaos - Sisters of Sigmar Act II, Part III

By Sword and Claw - Witch Hunters Act II, Part I

Middle Bridge[edit | edit source]

05-MiddleBridge.png
The Middle Bridge is located as the very center of Mordheim, spanning the River Stir. Despite being ravaged by the Twin-Tailed Comet, the Middle Bridge still stands, dutifully linking the districts of Mordheim. A position of obvious tactical advantage for whoever seeks to control Mordheim.

The Middle Bridge appears in every faction's single-player campaign. As well as the bridge top, the map sometimes features tunnels beneath which are often haunted by skaven. The player's objective is usually to stop an enemy faction from taking advantage of the bridge's superior tactical position.

Middle Bridge is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Bridge on the River Stir - Human Mercenaries Act I, Part IV

Water Under the Bridge - Skaven Act I, Part II

Blood for the Blood God - Undead Act II, Part II

Raven Barracks[edit | edit source]

06-RavenBarracks.png
The headquarters of the Mordheim city guard was the last bastion of sanity when chaos first gripped the city. The guards fought vigorously against their inevitable demise. Now that madness reigns, only the brave or the foolish dare penetrate the dark towering walls of the Raven Barracks.

The Raven Barracks appear in every faction's single-player campaign. The objective is often to steal a valuable weapon such as the rune-blade Griffonbrand, and map sometimes features a shrine to Khorne and Bloodletters.

Madman of Mordheim - Human Mercenaries Act II, Part I

Weapon Theft - Skaven Act I, Part IV

Blood of the Templar - Sisters of Sigmar Act II, Part II

Armies of the Night - Undead Act I, Part III

Statue of Count Gotthardt[edit | edit source]

07-StatueOfCountGotthardt.png
A great statue honouring Count Gotthardt stands miraculously untouched at the center of this plaza. A popular attraction before the cataclysm, it now acts as a beacon amidst the encroaching darkness and destruction.

The Statue of Count Gotthardt appears in every faction's single-player campaign. The map often features prison wagons from which the player warband can free allies, or stone obelisks which focus a sorcerous ritual. The Statue of Count Gotthardt is the setting for the following single-player campaign levels:

Servant of the Shadow Lord - Human Mercenaries Act II, Part II

Exterminators - Skaven Act II, Part II

Gateway of the Gods - Sisters of Sigmar Act II, Part IV

Dark Rites of Chaos - Witch Hunters Act II, Part III

Count Steinhardt’s Palace[edit | edit source]

08-CountSteinhardtsPalace.png
The Palace of Count Steinhardt was once Mordheim’s most preeminent court. Nobles of all aspirations never missed a chance to be seen mingling and dancing within its great halls. Since the Twin-Tailed Comet destroyed the city, the only forms still dancing in the ballroom are the swirls of shadow and malice locked forever in a passionate tango of chaos.

Count Steinhardt's Palace appears in every faction's single-player campaign. Like the Great Library it does not feature an enemy warband but rather a number of hostile daemons, usually daemonettes, and a special character called the Alluress. In most missions the Alluress will continually resurrect herself unless five purple wyrdstones are collected, and she will also have a slave-warrior from each faction.

Count Steinhardt's Palace is the setting of the following single-player campaign levels:

Palace of Profane Pleasures - Human Mercenaries Act II, Part III

Scent of Seduction - Skaven Act II, Part III

Seduction of the Innocent - Sisters of Sigmar Act II, Part I

Ancient Sorceries - Undead Act II, Part I

Merchant Quarter Map 1[edit | edit source]

09-MerchantQuarter1.png
A simple urban layout in a flat area of the city. Vantage points can often be found among the destroyed buildings.

Merchant Quarter Map 2[edit | edit source]

10-MerchantQuarterMap2.png
A dense urban sector featuring a street flanked by two elevated areas. Be mindful while traversing this low ground, as the nearby elevations provide tactical superiority.

Merchant Quarter Map 3[edit | edit source]

11-MerchantQuarterMap3.png
This area of the city features multiple levels of city streets overlooking one another. Limited access between levels creates vital choke points that can be leveraged to outmaneuver your enemy

Merchant Quarter Map 4[edit | edit source]

12-MerchantQuarterMap4.png
Even for experienced warbands, navigating this area of the city can prove challenging. Quirky pathways, and ruined buildings connect three levels of city streets.

Noble’s Quarter Map 1[edit | edit source]

13-NoblesQuarterMap1.png
In stark contrast to the dense squalor of the market district, the Noble’s quarter boasts wide streets, generous courtyards and opulent mansions; everything to accommodate a Nobel’s wealth and stature.

Noble’s Quarter Map 2[edit | edit source]

14-NoblesQuarterMap2.png
Nobles perched inside their grand mansions considered their stations threatened by the less fortunate in the streets below. In an effort to distance themselves from the slums, all accesses to the lower grounds were closed off and a large fence was erected.

Noble’s Quarter Map 3[edit | edit source]

15-NoblesQuarterMap3.png
Nobles often grouped their spacious mansions together in order to isolate themselves from the common rabble. Large courtyards and majestic landmarks form a barrier between their opulent mansions and the rest of the city.

Noble’s Quarter Map 4[edit | edit source]

16-NoblesQuarterMap4.png
This section of the Noble’s Quarter offers quite a logistical challenge. Long Streets, large courtyards, and looping pathways offer ample opportunity to chase your enemy around.
