Assembling the Oldhammer Beastman horde

By Rusty Dice 2014-12-02 20.58.43

The horde grows.

I have been very distracted by Minotaurs. The lovely folk over at the Oldhammer trading group (a sister group of the Oldhammer forum) are great for trading miniatures. I've been swapping unwanted treasures for all sorts of hairy goodness.


Oldhammer Minotaurs

Trading has been fruitful. I've amassed quite the pile of Minotaurs and Beastmen now, so I am starting to work on assembling and painting the models!

Deciding how to paint models that are almost as old as myself is quite intimidating, but I am eager to get to work.

Here are the first 9 I've assembled. They're mostly Bob Naismith sculpts, with a few I am unsure of. I'm loosely planning on using the "lords" as champions for each unit, so here they are pictures in 2 units.


Oldhammer Beastmen

I've finally decided on an army to label "Oldhammer" and it's one I've slowly collected classic models for over a long time. I've always liked Beastmen, but refrained from starting another army as Warhammer wasn't being played locally. Now it is and I have the Oldhammer bug, so things happened.

Beastmen benefit from having models that sit together well, regardless of generation. I'm not using this as an excuse to use some modern models, but I will be employing some new sculpts on a basis of liking the model.

Malifaux Schemes + Strategies deck

By Rusty Dice Large_Strat

I've finally got hold of a S&S deck!

If there was ever one bad thing to be said about Malifaux, it would be the amount of memory aids required. Remembering strategies/schemes and flicking back to the rulebook can be a little tedious, often leaving me wondering why there wasn't an official deck to use. Wyrd were quite aware.


Well, now there is and it certainly delivers.


100 man army – Age of Darkness

I've been quite heavily involved in the "pre-heresy" and "age of darkness" scene for many years now, particularly a time before Forge World took on the mantle. It's a rich and inspiring era of the 40k universe, an age of greater heroes and arguably nobler times. I've enjoyed converting both space marines and their counters for years, but something has shied me away from getting more involved in the post-Forgeworld environment. I can't help but think it's the tanks.
