You can read my original ramblings here How do you start oldhammer?
You also may not know that there has been an ongoing thread on the Oldhammer Forum showing folks work and the progress there little bands are getting on Oldhammer forum thread
Then Last week James Holloway from http://gonzohistorygaming.blogspot.co.uk/ posted up his finished warband and I decided to share it here and also to show some of the other highlights from the challenge.
First of all here is a shot of his whole warband
and here are the individual units
|I particularly like this unit of thugs that are based on some dark age plastics and various heads and bits.|
|And this unit of converted mantic orcs|
|And here is the motley crews leader.|
As with most of these challenges, most folk never got round to finishing but the fact that people joined in and searched for all sorts of alternative figures was what made it worth while. So below are some other stand out contributions and the links to the owners blogs if I have them.
Dieselhorst painted up these gorgeous horsemen and has loads more figs to paint and you can see more detail about them here http://mdarrow.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/how-to-do-oldhammer.html
Spacecowsmith converted and painted a horde of mini orange slann check out more of this kind of stuff over at http://talesfromfarpoint.blogspot.co.uk/
Blue in Vermont did these lovely Bob Olley sculpted space dudes and he may have even finished the 21 required! more here http://bluesmarauders.blogspot.co.uk/
Captain crooks did and ace job of converting these one piece placcy chaos warriors but I don't think he ever got round to painting them. Check out his blog http://funkywenisrodeo.blogspot.co.uk/
Olean did a lovely little ally contingent of pygmies. Little fellas are ace!
There is loads more on the thread that I couldn't copy over, including a scarecrow army, a skaven warband made with the latest box set figures and loads more. Thanks to everybody for joining in. Obviously this isn't over (i've not even finished mine yet) so if the idea of the challenge grabs your fancy, just join in! Cheers.
