The Cult is rising! Pray to the 4-armed God

Hey,

A few months ago entered my Cult of the Children force into my local GW's Army of the Month contest and won, below are the pictures of that entry. I've painted alot more Cult bits since then, but I'll show them off another time.

I like gaming with old figures but with current rules, that way i can always get a game in and get the joy of painting the classic sculpts.

This Cult is built for use for Codex: Imperial Guard, hence the Heavy Weapon teams. Genestealer count as allied Deamonettes

Cult of the Children (Has grown alot since this picture)

Command Squad, Hybrid Leader has since been redone


Battle Psyker Squad

Platoon Command Squad












'Stealers baby!

3  Autocannon Teams, behind 3rd Ed 40k Ruins


 Next update i'll post some more of the Cult i have been working on.

Cheers

Goblin Aid



For you which don't know GoblinAid is a project launched by Ian 'Geronimo' Brumby (of Fenris Games) and Jon 'Dags' Atter (cat-herder for the Frothers Charity projects) to raise funds for Kev Adams to help in his recovery.

On March 20th Kev Adams was brutally assaulted during a robbery at his home. A Facebook page was soon set up for gamers to share news and coordinate some help for Kev- GoblinAid
Within days some of the finest sculptors in the business had volunteered to sculpt goblin miniatures that could be sold to help the cause.

Now the good news the first 6 packs have been cast and soon be ready for sale.








If you interested in helping out or buying some of these fantastic Goblins head over to the Facebook page HERE

Or if you can't wait for those Goblins you can head over to Wargames Foundry to get some of Kev Adams fantastic Snorklings


Until next time, have a beer or 2 and relax.

Ram raiding GW? Yes please!

Hey,

No this isn't a post about GW pricing, as i couldn't careless if they keep upping the price and releasing something new and shiny to use to rape your gaming opponent army. As 90% of the figures i want are 20 years old or older.

No no no.. this is something much better as someone drove there car into a GW store.. come on who hasn't dreamed on doing that once in awhile? heh ;)

And before anyone says otherwise, yes i know its a old picture and its been floating around awhile in the interwebz, i thought you all may get a laugh from it.

GORKAMORKA LIVES!
As always feel free to comment and follow this Blog, once i get 20 followers i'll give away a Oldhammer prize.

Skaven Battle Standard

Hey,

Awhile ago after getting a large Skaven bag of mixed items of Ebay i found a broken old Skaven Bell Ringer from the first Screaming Bell and thought hmmm i could make a nice Battle Standard from him.. so i did!

This is a couple of years ago but i thought I'd post it here for you all to enjoy.






A little while later i wanted a new and improved Battle Standard so i painted up Quick-Blade, Under-Vermin Kin-Caller a Banelords figure.





Which version do you prefer?

Chaos Dwarfs of Malal sighted!

Hey,

At the beginning of this year GW Watford ran a few Army of the Month contests, for the first month outing I entered my Malalite Chaos Dwarfs. Which are mostly built from 3rd Ed Chaos Dwarfs for use with Tamurkhan: Throne of Chaos rules

For those who don't know who Malal is here is a brief description:

Malal, also now called Malice, is a renegade Chaos God and the Hierarch of Anarchy and Terror. Also known as "The Outcast God", "The Lost God" and "The Renegade God", Malal was the embodiment of Chaos indiscriminate and anarchic tendency toward destruction, even of itself and its own agents. The nature of Malal's/Malice's powers is parasitic, as the Renegade God grows in power only when the other Ruinous Powers do. Malal's sacred number is 11 and his sacred colours are black and white.

These placed a respectable 2nd just being beaten to the post my a Legion of the Dammed Marine force.


Highlights of these include a converted Heroquest Dwarf and the Blunderbuss/Swivel Gun unit, for more pictures you can view there WIPthread HERE

Until next time, remember to follow this blog and drink lots of Beer :)

On the cheap - Part 2

Hey,

Welcome to Part 2 of the On the cheap series. Today we are once again on about tips and tricks with dealing with the sentient entity know as Ebay.

I've already mentioned Job/Mixed/Junk in the last On the cheap post, this time its all about a well used Ebay hunting tactic known as ''Misspelling searches'' Not everyone knows the Oldhammer and Wargaming World quite like us so when selling what they view as worthless or taking up space not everyone will know the correct spelling.

Now in the last few days i picked up 3 auctions which were misspelt or not correctly listed.



Now the above lot was a misspelt listing, it was listed as ''warhammer 40k 9 hybreed genestealers''
While not a rare listing the misspelling of Hybrid as Hybreed meant that most Genestealer Cult collectors missed them and in the end i grabbed myself a bargain.


The Shock Attack gun above was listed as ''Ork with Rocket Launcher'' and in the end only sold for £1.70 and after a Dettol bath came away perfect with no damage and just needing a new left arm (Came with a Marine arm)


My 3rd and final incorrectly listed auction win was the above 5 Boarboyz, now these was listed as: ''Orc collectable boarboys'' because they were labelled as Orc and not Ork these went for peanuts.


Remember that there's always bargins to be had on Ebay, you just have to be clever about it.

Until next time, feel free to comment with your Ebay wins and loses, also make sure you follow this Blog as at some point i will be giving away a prize to a random follower.

Cheers and until next time

Ork Artwork

As it stands I'm having a bit of an Ork addiction and I've found not only drooling over many a old-school Ork force on the internet. I've also found myself saving many pieces of  Ork artwork/drawing to my Laptop.

Here are some of my favourites:

Classic RT picture, love the Jolly Ork banner.


2nd Ed Orks, these are what Orks should be. Not the crap GW produces for the range now.


Quite a modern piece by my standards, but there's just something about a mutant/chaos Ork that appeals to my inner-self 



Freebooter Badge: The Jolly Ork

Waaaaaagh!

Freebooters, this reminds me i need to get a mob together.

Right until next time, enjoy and feel free to follow this blog and comment on anything you see fit.
