July is a busy time (Wait it's August?)

Still here, still going to post updates ...

July is one of those months where everything happens for me. Thus I have not had a lot of time for the oldhammer hobby or anything else worth posting about. However just to keep this going I'll put up a couple of images:

'Ere? Where did all that snow go? Wat dis place?'

Here are all the orks I have painted up so far, from the Goffs to the Runtherd and even the Boss himself at the back (he's not quite finished yet).

Also one of my favorite models has been dunked and had the paint removed ready for a new paint scheme, but it is no Ork:

We will find the Orks and slay them!

Yep a Dire Avenger Exarch, fantastic model (as I mentioned in my top ten) and one I hope to paint up very soon.

That's it, until next time :)

Necromunda Underhive: Ganger and Gang Name Generator

Necromunda and it's newest sibling Shadow Wars: Armageddon are great games if you want to get close and personnel with those that live in the underhives of the 40k universe.

From Bounty Hunters searching for criminal drug dealers to Heretical Redemptionists burning everything in sight in the emperors name it is a fantastic world to get lost in. Mind you it helps if you can give names to your would be bunch of infamous hoodlums.

"Well Hi Mr ....? angry autogun dude!

I know from experience this can be a difficult thing to do, some gamers aren't that interested while others create gang names from popular culture in the vein of naming a bunch of Worms in that humorous PC game :)

Nearly a month, don't get lost in Turkish Tombs

Yes it's been a little while since the last post, mainly due to a trip to Turkey for some needed R&R. Wonderful place with great weather, good food and wonderful scenery. As a tenuous link to oldhammer here are the Necropolis of Kaunos which may inspire some undead scenery makers, hewn into a cliff face by ancient peoples.

If that doesn't take your fancy then here is the only thing I can offer until I paint up some more heroquest or ork goodness.

Those dungeon heroes should really be careful ...

... you never know what might show up in the catacombs beneath the old world.

Yep over the weekend I have completed painting and basing a whole host of Heroquest miniatures ready to ambush an unwary hero or two.

Ow my ankles, damned crafty goblins sneaking about!

Two Battle Master goblins, not a fan of these minis as they are a bit lacking in detail so difficult to paint up properly. Still nice to have some variation in the goblin ranks.

Orcs with big swords, flails and an angry temperament!

An orc with a cleaver, meats on the menu boys!

With these six orcs complete, all of the orcs have now been painted up. I did enjoy painting these greenskins, the blue tunic one was a bit of a throwback as that was the original colour scheme I gave him. All I did was tidy him up a lot and base him, I'll use him as an orc with a big sword in a quest as he stands out from the rest.

They found some shambling rags, must be the work of a shaman!

Two more goblins here which completes the set of diminutive greenskins. Plus the final mummy, you can see some red areas which are a younger me giving it blood marks, tidy up and complete once again.

Something new, or is that very old and rotten? :)

The shambling horde approaches, finally got around to painting up the zombies for Heroquest one of which was missing a head. This meant searching the bits box for something else. Finally found a zombie head from the warhammer range and after a bit of filing down got it in place. I think it looks good and adds some variation to the trio. I have always liked these zombie minis they have the right amount of ghoulishness for the heroes to overcome.

That's it for this post, the fimir will be up next. Those cyclopean monsters are going to be great to paint.

Until next time :)
