So what periods, manufacturers and lines should I look at to stand in for these increasingly hand to find minis? Thanks for any help you can give!

It depends on what you are looking for. If you want regular guys the plastics are still available:

And 20 figs for $35 USD isn't a bad price.

The Greatswords would work well as bits to add some diversity to your units. They would also work as the odd free knight.

If you're looking for Skaven the night runners are still available as well:

Another thing to check into might be the Warlord Games recently acquired Landsknecht range

They have a lot of pikemen and such that wouldn't be as useful but some of the packs, like the hunting party, would work really well in Mordheim.

I think there are quite a few options depending on what warband you are modeling. I've found a number of fits that work depending in the warband.

You might find some inspiration on Toms Boring Mordheim forum. Just google it up and you could spend hours looking at other peoples warband ideas.

I used some Westwind Vampire Wars figures for my witch hunter warband. There is also an out of production chainmail ogre. Reaper also has quite a few useful figures.

Also worth looking at The Assault Group's Renaissance range. Their Tudors, Valois, Spanish and Italians are perfect.

I 2nd the Reaper suggestion.
Foundry has a range of "Ex-GW/Citadel figures; many could be useful depending on the MH warband & a some of the "Mercenaries" are perfect, IMO.

Perry miniatures manufactures a nice Wars of the Roses plastic range that could do well for human mercenaries, though the weapon mixtures might not be quite as versatile as you might want. They come in boxes of 40, so you would be able to assemble a couple of warbands from a set.

If anybody is interested in a SISTERS OF SIGMAR warband, I just found this indiegogo is currently running:

But I strongly support the suggestion to take a good look at TOM'S BORING MORDHEIM FORUM.

Simply THE BEST worldwide Morheim community.

Hope that helps.

For Cheap figs…

I seem to remember that Old Glory had some suitable figures for witchhunters though I don't recall if it was in their own lines or in the west wind lines they carry.

Black Tree has some great options for skaven and human militants.

For a Ulrician warband you can't go wrong with Vikings – there are plenty to choose from in 28/32mm, but the Gripping Beast plastics should give you plenty. If you mix and match with other plastics then their Saxon Thengs and Dark Ages Warriors are good sources too.

Rackham's Cadwallon range, but as they are OOP too, it might be even harder to score some… Great minis, though!

Ratnik's from LAF

The new Frostgrave plastics are pretty darned good.

snurl117 Sep 2015 11:04 p.m. PST

Do NOT buy Wargames Factory Skeletons.
They are:
Difficult to remove from the sprue without breaking, even with proper clippers.
Difficult to assemble without flattening spots ahead of time, especially arms and heads.
Difficult to move anywhere when completed without breaking something.
Covered with deep mold lines.

On the good side, they look cool and they are cheap.
