Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.10: 20 Half Orcs


So my counts this is my final To4OG's post as these takes me up too 1000pts .

Note I missed posting a month due to camera problems, but I still painted up a Hobgoblin Battle Standard in that month which hasn't yet been shown but I'm saving him for next month as part of a full army shot.

Right this month I repainted my Half Orcs clothes and cloaks which I first painted for Orctober 2013.

Much happier with them now.


Just need to finish a movement tray and I'm calling it a day.

Boy going for a horde army for To4OG wasn't my cleaverest move hehe

Anyway Ta Ta for now!

Blood Bowl: What!?-Fords Part 4 - Time for a Upgrade? Downgrade?


So along time ago ( Jan 2015), Ok not that long ago in the grand scheme of things I finished my Human Blood Bowl team the What!?-Fords which were named after my home town Watford and even used the colours of the Football Team (Yes I'm not a Football Fan but rather a Rugby Fan).

You can see what was the final post HERE

The team as it stands now

Konflikt '47 - The First Game.. Kinda


So yesterday at the Watford Wargaming Club I planned to play my first game of K'47/BA, well that was the plan anyway but sadly I was stood up and the game didn't take place :(

Still It wasn't all bad as I managed to take a few pics of my force (Some are even Ok..ish).

Warmaster: Araby - Progress Pt.1


As regular readers know I'm currently working on my 2nd Warmaster force, for those which may have missed it (Shame on you) you can read the start of the project here: Warmaster: Araby - The Project Begins.

How have I progressed?

Honestly?

It's been a real pain in the bum!

Why? 

Well due to the fact my first order was mostly the same few sculpts in large numbers it's been a strain keeping motivated, plus it doesn't help that the same sculpts aren't very detailed and rather soft.

Still I've gritted my teeth and grinded though (Also been breaking it up by painting Mordheim and K'47 toys) and made some progress.

GLOGGing it: 5th June


Once again a few people from around the Greater London area are having a get together in Ilford Gaming Club on the 5th of June.

Come down (Up?) and join us for a chat and a game or two. It's doesn't have to be Oldhammer and feel free to arrange and game whatever you wish, as it's a normal games Club no doubt people will be gaming random bits anyway.

Me? Well once again I'll be Mordheiming it up with the Riot Maker himself (Which may or maynot get molested.. just sayin') and Paul/Golgfag1 in a 3 way 1000gc stand alone game.

The Congregation of the Twin Tailed Comet will make the streets run red.

Warmaster: Araby - The Project Begins


As regular readers know I like my smaller scales and one of my favourite scales is 10mm.

Already having 1 10mm army (My Orcs) I thought it was time to get them someone to bash or in the case of my Orcs lose too.

So what army to choose? It has too be a army I can build from alternative figure ranges as GW figures sell for silly (and I do mean silly) amounts.

Dark Elves? Tempting but I'm not too keen on the alternative minis.

Kislev? These ended up being close to the army I went with as most of the army could be built from Historic Polish.

Skaven? Sadly no suitable alternative ranges I liked, Gun wielding Mice though...

Araby? Bingo! Alternative ranges? Check! as there's both Fantasy and Historic ranges that'll fit and I'll get to run fun toys like Flying Carpets and elephants.

Well anyway one small test order and a few weeks wait and here's the first bits though the door:

Happy 3rd Birthday Bloggy!


Just a quick post but it's my Bloggys 3rd birthday.

Started back in 2013 when Oldhammer was still very new and nowhere near as popular. I've watched the movement grow to a staggering amount of people/project/Blogs/groups.

While  have somewhat moved on from Oldd School gaming into a wide range of other games the Blog was always the one constant that hasn't changed much, that is bad jokes, blurry pictures and lots of typos.

Anyway here's to another few years!

Chico Does Mordheim: Pt.16 - The Congregation of the Twin Tailed Comet



Hey boys and girls if you remember from this post The Random Cultist Project I picked up some of the fantastic Frostyballs Cultists to use in Chicoheim™.

I have to say even being plastic they were a joy to paint, it allowed me to try a brighter then normal paint scheme without worrying too much.

Konflikt '47 - Even More Waffen SS


Progress has been going rather well on this little project with all the basic/non-weird troop elements finished.

I have a Hanomag and a Gestapo Vampire coming in the post along with another  SS Lieutenant armed with a MP40 just to add some variation.

The plan was/is to do the normal bits first just so I can have a game of Bolt Action if I fancied while we wait for the K'47 rules.

Anyway here's some pictures!

 Various SS, mostly Warlord Minis

Konflikt '47 - Waffen SS


As you know from this POST that i'm really excited for the release of this system in the coming months.

So I thought I better start looking at getting a force together and try painting camo (In this case Pea Dot).

As all the other players in my Club which favour playing this have Allies for there Bolt Action Forces (This system uses a updated BA rules system, so you can use a straight BA force if you wish) I thought I'd have a pop at some elite German forces.

Waffen SS it is then, while not everyone likes to play such a force due to history but that doesn't bother me as I can separate real life from toys without any problems.
