Over at the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group, the colonials presented a challenge to paint up 200 points of a new army each calendar month. The points must adhere to 3rd or 4th edition Warhammer. I no longer play either, but I do collect Undead and like an excuse to paint them – so I am going to join in. As the ruleset doesn’t matter to me, I’m going to blog the progress with information for both rulesets for pleasure and thematics – and since I actually use my undead for Kings of War, for that too!
Last Autumn, Curtis Fell of Ramshackle Games notoriety, proposed a fun idea to the Oldhammer group of getting together to sculpt some miniatures as a group project. 7 sculptors of varying experience all decided to take part and contribute one (or two) models for the project, culminating in their completion over the festive period. What now? I posed to the group. Shall we actually push these into production?
It’s Nurgle Tuesday and so I have painted some more unique Nurgle models. This time I’m back onto the Plaguebearers. The scheme is pretty simple, so I did another 3, bringing the total to 6 unique Plaguebearers. I have 19 different models so far, as follows:
There’s also one later generation of metals and the current plastic ranges, but they’re not on my radar yet.
Some classic models are easy to acquire, others are rare or expensive. In an attempt to get back into sculpting and fill some gaps in my army, I’ve decided to try and create my own versions of Oldhammer models.
I got some new styluses for Christmas, so here’s the obligatory tool shot.
I’ve been working with the blue stylus (smallest) and a basic clay shaper. You tend to get comfortable with a single weapon rather than swapping through the options!
