Can someone give me an overview of how Warcry differs from Mordheim?

First issue is that Warcry is not a skirmish-scaled down version of AoS, like Mordheim was of Warhammer. Instead it is it's own, simpler and cleaner, system designed for small skirmish games from the ground up.

Thanks, Yogi

Does it use the standard GW ability array (Weapon Skill Ballistic Skill, Strength, Toughness)?

Nope, but it does use some of that stuff.

Instead of rolling to hit and then to wound it is all one S vs. T roll so no ballistic skill or weapon skill.

The GW intro videos did a pretty good job of going over the basics. Got enough of a feel thst it saved me $150. USD

I'll just stick with AoS skirmish or Song of Blades and Heroes.

For me one of the attractions of Mordheim was that it WAS the same as Warhammer and didn't require me to learn another system…
