Triple-game Undead

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!


Embracing Oldhammer

Having been into the Warhammer hobby for 25 years now, the “Oldhammer” community feels like a natural hangout for me. Lots of veteran players gather to discuss (and lament) the classic days of Warhammer and Rogue Trader. Nostalgia is a powerful feeling and Oldhammer delivers it by the bucket load.


Kings of War Hobby Post : Werewolves

Neil of Orange here with my latest hobby post.  I previewed a colour scheme for the Mantic Kings of War Werewolves on the MyWargame facebook page a little while ago and the response was really positive.  I’ve completed the unit based on this and logged the steps for anyone who might benefit.

First a bit of a review of the figure kit for anyone interested in the models themselves.


Warhammer Vampire Counts : “counts as” Hex Wraiths

Neil of Orange here with a bit of Warhammer gothic horror hobby on this cold and dark night (well here in the UK anyway…)

I’ve been slowly adding new units to my ever growing Vampire Counts army in the wake of the book released for Warhammer 8th edition.  While I’m not much of a fan of the current rules system I do like painting undead and there’s always other systems to look at (Kings of War is next on my try list).


A unit a week 2 – More ghouls!

Yes, more ghouls for the ghoulkin!

The rules of my weekly challenge state I can split large units into several weeks, as long as each entry meets the minimum unit size. Wanting to pace myself, in order to allow any other available time be spent on building and sculpting, I’m doing another 10 ghouls for week 2.


A unit a week? Ghouls!

In an attempt to find new motivation, I’ve signed myself up for a couple of year-long projects. One is the Gathering of Might at Ammo Bunker, which is loosely paint an army in a year. The other is October Club’s 52-week challenge, to paint a model or unit every week (but not necessarily for the same army/game)!

For week 1, which I believe is January 1st -8th, I have chosen to do a unit of ghouls. The unit must meet the minimum unit size, allowing me to split a 40-strong unit across several weeks if needed.
