Oldhammer resurrection

After I callously abandoned my idea for an Oldhammer Mordheim gang I've had to endure the guilt of looking at a bunch of forlorn miniatures in my Box of Shame. So I decided to chuck them into the fray that surrounds the Allpoints. I've been proxying them as Legions of Nagash in Warcry.

Here's the crew so far...

And at the foot of this post are the studio shots of them. I've got more to finish with the next being the Epic version of Mortarion. Here he is, almost done, on my painting table.

My longtime opponent Mr T and I had a game of Warcry a week or so ago and it was the most fun I've had for a while. The system is slick, satisfying and both players are constantly engaged at all times (no waiting around to watch someone decimate your army). I highly recommend it and it's motivated me to paint even more.

I'm also making another tape-case gaming box for their accessories. A friend has kindly 3D printed a couple more inserts for me which I need to clean up.

 Expect more on this in the near future.


  1. Nifty warband, loads of fun figs. Those old ghosts look particularly nice.

    Warcry is a lot of fun, and a great way to get all sorts of oddball figs on the table. I'm finding it very motivating.

  2. Great looking stuff!

    And yeah, we've been having a lot of fun with Warcry around here. Cool system.

  3. Small projects of the sort are the best, looks like a great band in the making !

  4. They look good - I particularly like the pointing sorcerer guy. I remember him from the old red Citadel catalogue!
