Back of Beyond - Chinese Painted Pt.5

'ello readers we are now are Part 5 of the ongoing BoB WW2 Chinese Nationalist force.

You can view the first 4 posts below:

So despite the musing over the Blog's name and direction I've been busy painting (Nothing changes there).

So what's new?

I've mostly been painting the Levy (Free Squad in Bolt Action for all flavours of Chinese), but also knocked out 2 Cav and 2 Big Sword's and a Bodyguard.

Time for a new name?

So as this Blog is now almost reaching both 4 years old and a half million views (Bots!, Bloody Bots I tell Ya!) I'm pondering a Blog name change to reflect on it's now more open/random nature of my posts.

When I first started this it was all about Oldhammering on a ummm budget, hence the rather simple naming decision.

As it currently stands I'm not that attached/involved in the scene anymore having done everything my nostalgia wanted. So there isn't much 'hammering let alone old.

So should I change the name?

What should I change it too?

Or should I stay with the name and pay homage to the roots of which it came from?


Whats your thoughts?

Ta Ta for now.

Beyond the Gates of Antares - Shall I?

So whats all this then eh?

Well a number of people on my Bloggy List have been posting up bits and a pieces from Beyond the Gates of Antares (You know who you are!) and it's been tempting me to maybe dip my toe in the Sci-Fi waters once more.

Bolt Action - Operation Sealion/Dad's Army

So as you might know Warlord Games are releasing a Campaign book for Bolt Action  based on the ''What could have happened'' British Invasion code-named Operation Sea Lion.

The year is 1940, and the German invasion of Britain has begun. With this new campaign book for Bolt Action, players can fight the battles of World War II's greatest 'what if' scenario. Defend the cliffs of Dover and the beaches of Kent from wave after wave of German landing craft. Parachute into the Home Counties in a surgical strike to capture Winston Churchill. Rally the Home Guard in a last, desperate attempt to keep England free of the Nazi invaders! Containing new rules, scenarios, and unit types covering all of the unique features of this alternate history campaign, it offers a chance for all Bolt Action players to truly rewrite the history of World War II.

Now seeing as last years Bring Out Your Lead hosted at Foundry I picked up more or less the full set of Foundry's Home Guard it was due time I got working on them again.

I already had one section finished so I already had a good start.

Anyway enough talking I'm sure you want to see some pictures, being me shite pictures but whatcha expect? hehe

Konflikt '47 - German Waffen SS ''Terror Squad''

'Ello my loyal OoaB readers.

Now I've mentioned K'47 a fair few times on this Blog but have never shown you any finished units.

Well today I bring forth the first completed unit:

Waffen SS ''Terror Squad''

This Terror Squad is made up from members of the 33rd Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS Charlemagne (1st French).

Armed with a number of unsual weapons like the Gustloff VG 1-5 assault rifle, Krummlauf assault rifle (fires around corners!) &  Luftfaust hand-held anti-aircraft rocket launchers.

Good Morning Vietnam!


China is close enough right?

It isn't Morning?

Bollocks to you!

So it's been 15 days since the last WW2/BoB Chinese update (Blog post HERE) and the force was just starting to look like something other than a random collection of figures, now though it's almost a small gaming force.

Bolt Action: German Winter Wehrmacht

Bolt Action: German Armour

In July last year I posted up a Blog post showing off my German force for BA/K'47.

Now I wasn't happy with it and I ended up paint stripping them and separating the force into two, a K'47 army which also serves as a BA Last Levy force with changing up the units (Remove Volksstrum & add in Heavy Armoured Inf or vice versa) pictures of those to come.

The 2nd force were turned into a Ostfront Mid-Late War Winter force.

Today I finished the last but of Armour in the form of a Stummel.

So here's all the Armour done:

A Random Gift Unboxing

Heh while the above picture would indeed be a rather random gift.

That's not what I'm on about right now,

You see a good friend of mine and opponent (Well was anyway) gave up the hobby in the new year due to ill health.

He sent me a picture which you can see below asking if I was interested as it was the last of his stuff and knew me well enough to know I love my free toys.

Back of Beyond - Chinese Prep Work Begins

It's another post!

Damn you lot are lucky, wish I got to look at drivel such as this and blurry pics like you loyal OoaB readers get too!

Anyway now my ego can't fit though the door it's time for the post.

Back of Beyond - Chinese Nationalists

So it's been a wee while since I posted,

So ummm..



Anyway the reason for my lack of posts is that my Hobby mojo got up and fucked off for awhile.

Combined with only getting a single game in since November it was time to do something drastic..

I've since sold off a good percentage of my collections (Chico's Ebay goodies) as alot of it was just gathering dust and acting like a ball and chain holding my now fucked off mojo.

It's really quite freeing get rid of the toys and now I have hobby space it's time to get some projects going.

First up will be some BoB Chinese, but I still have some Oldhammer projects planned (Slanneshi Dark Elves, Blood Bowl Humans)
