Chaos Talisman Trio

Posted on September 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

One day at Games Workshop HQ, Aly Morrison came up to me with a big bag of Talisman figures.  “I found this bag of scrabby old models in my basement, and I was gonna bin ’em.  Then I remembered you like scrabby old stuff.”  I was over the moon.  Here’s the first three painted. The …

The Ethos of Oldhammer

Hi All,A discussion over on the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook group got me thinking again about what exactly Oldhammer is and why is there even an argument about it. Obviously there are many flavors of appreciation for the games and figures of th…

Of wrinkled bones – Story of a Skolleyton

Posted on September 3rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi all !
A few days ago, I saw a very nice proposition on the Oldhammer FB page, the kind you can hardly say no to…
Stuart K. offered a handful of Olley miniatures to the people who’d claim them first at the only condition that those models were painted within a month.
Now I do like to be challenged and I love Olley models even more ! This is how I ended up bagging this magnificent skeleton !

Morcar and and complete set of oldhammer exclusives !

Posted on August 20th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Ok so after painting Curtis’ sculpts for BOYL, I had to finish one last model to complete the set of Oldhammer events exclusive models. This one was sculpted for BOYL16 by Geoff Sims from Oakbound.
You might either have recognised him or just understood who he was from the title of this post but in case you have no clue, here is Morcar of Heroquest fame.

Ramshackle Oldhammer exclusives !

Posted on August 19th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

OK, so after painting Olivia a few days ago, I thought I’d finish all the models that I’ve got from previous BOYL events. Just as a reminder, BOYL (Bring Out Your Lead) is the Oldhammer event in Newark every summer to celebrate the joy of oldschool gaming.
One of the traditions now is to get a free model (sometimes 2) designed and produced specifically for the occasion because let’s face it, nothing pleases us as getting new models !

Third BOYL for a bloody lucky french !!!

Posted on August 2nd, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Back at home after a few weeks on holidays and plenty of nice stuff done and people met. Like a couple of time before, those holidays ended with the Oldhammer Grand reunion : Bring Out Your Lead aka BOYL.
It’s funny how after a couple of previous editions, everything seemed so familiar this time, people, the place, it felt like home in a way.
Like for the previous years, I was determined to making the best of it again so tried to squeeze as many games in as I could.
Let’s have a quick look at the games played :

Bring Out Your Lead!

Posted on July 28th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Courtesy of those wonderful folks at Wargames Foundry, for the first time I am travelling along to a weekend of Oldhammer in East Stoke, Newark. 
OLDHAMMER!
FIFTH ANNUAL OLDHAMMER 2017
The fifth Oldhammer: Bring Out Your Lead! event is fast approaching and will be held at our shop in East Stoke near Newark, Nottinghamshire on the 28th, 29th and 30th of July.
“BRING OUT YOUR LEAD is the annual gaming event that brings together the best of the tabletop retrogaming community.
There will be demo games, participation games, a spectacular amount of vintage fantasy and science fiction miniatures on display, old-school gaming paraphernalia, great beer and much more.
The event is open to casual moochers, as well as the hardcore Oldhammer fanatic, so feel free to drop in and see what’s going on.
…And, whilst the event is all about celebrating old games and old figures – any and all games and figures are welcome”
For more info: https://bringoutyourlead.co.uk/
There is even a show mini…a 40K Imperial Guardette….sculpted by the inimitable John Pickford… 
All pics above c/o of the BOYL and used purely for the purpose of pushing people into the joy of old lead.
As most know, I am not a gamer….merely a hoarder of dusty lead. Back in the 70s and very occasionally the early 80s, I played D&D and Warhammer. That was my lot. The Lead God called and I was willing. I am hoping to spend some time with various luminaries such as Tony Yates, Steve Casey, Kev Adams, Bryan (and Marcus) Ansell and to finally meet up with the Oldhammerers from across the hobby……
Pics below later :)

Car parked up in the grounds…..middle of nowhere, what’s not to love…..

Various cabinet pics of drool-worthy painted legends….

Bryan and Maria Ansell photobombing my shot :)

40K Inquisition style vehicles, scratch built and not released unfortunately….

Slann on Cold Ones painted by the great Kev Adams….he came along on Saturday to sculpt heads for people at a bargain price of £10 for charity. I’ll post pics later. A visitor was chatting away slightly confused, I gently pointed out this was Kev Adams and his jaw hit the ground as he hadn’t realised. He will be bringing models on Sunday for Kev to put a head on!

I was speaking all day with Tony Ackland however only took one pic of the artwork he brought along! This firearm was created using an airbrush…

Various pics from the display cabinets. Maria and Marcus have spent days organising these lovingly so we can drool to our hearts’ content…..first 3 pics are a bunch of (very) old sculpts mostly by Tony Yates from back in the day for playtesting Rogue Trader rules…..Steve Casey generously presented me with a bunch of old Citadel baggies containing some of these but I thought them better placed with Foundry so passed them over to Marcus and Mariah. 

Miniatures that Marcus has cast up for the show, some re-released old Citadel/Foundry, some unreleased Citadel and some of the maestro Tony Yates’ sculpts.

Today’s loose loot.

Yay! My own copy of the event mini.

Freebie resin mini courtesy of Curtis Fell, the mad genius behind Ramshackle Games. The character is a mayor in a scenario game at BOYL.

Ramshackle Oldhammer Acolyte

Posted on July 17th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Curtis over at Ramshackle did a limited run of figures for Bring Out Your Lead 2016, and I’ve painted one to accompany Clyro Burns. As an event, BOYL focuses on “Oldhammer”, so Curtis sculpted this model holding an old hammer.  Ha! I’ve converted my figure with a new face shaved off a Citadel Judge Dredd […]
