Today I continue my progress into the Worlds of the Antares Gates and more accurately my Boromite Clan.
Clan Thanor formally of Guild Rantide:
Being ejected from their Guild by the Guildess for failure to heed to the Matriarch nature of Boromite society, they have since turned to the unsavoury act of Pirates, Bandits and Mercs.
Hiring themselves out to both the Freeborn and the many million worlds of the Determinate.
After being ejected the outcast members of the Clan have undergone gene-therapy to enhance their skin colours to a brighter hue to reflect their new life and distance themselves from the still loyal members of the Guild.
So as this Blog is now almost reaching both 4 years old and a half million views (Bots!, Bloody Bots I tell Ya!) I'm pondering a Blog name change to reflect on it's now more open/random nature of my posts.
When I first started this it was all about Oldhammering on a ummm budget, hence the rather simple naming decision.
As it currently stands I'm not that attached/involved in the scene anymore having done everything my nostalgia wanted. So there isn't much 'hammering let alone old.
So should I change the name?
What should I change it too?
Or should I stay with the name and pay homage to the roots of which it came from?
Well a number of people on my Bloggy List have been posting up bits and a pieces from Beyond the Gates of Antares (You know who you are!) and it's been tempting me to maybe dip my toe in the Sci-Fi waters once more.
So as you might know Warlord Games are releasing a Campaign book for Bolt Action based on the ''What could have happened'' British Invasion code-named Operation Sea Lion.
The year is 1940, and the German invasion of Britain has begun. With this new campaign book for Bolt Action, players can fight the battles of World War II's greatest 'what if' scenario. Defend the cliffs of Dover and the beaches of Kent from wave after wave of German landing craft. Parachute into the Home Counties in a surgical strike to capture Winston Churchill. Rally the Home Guard in a last, desperate attempt to keep England free of the Nazi invaders! Containing new rules, scenarios, and unit types covering all of the unique features of this alternate history campaign, it offers a chance for all Bolt Action players to truly rewrite the history of World War II.
Now seeing as last years Bring Out Your Lead hosted at Foundry I picked up more or less the full set of Foundry's Home Guard it was due time I got working on them again.
So it's been 15 days since the last WW2/BoB Chinese update (Blog post HERE) and the force was just starting to look like something other than a random collection of figures, now though it's almost a small gaming force.
In July last year I posted up a Blog post showing off my German force for BA/K'47.
Now I wasn't happy with it and I ended up paint stripping them and separating the force into two, a K'47 army which also serves as a BA Last Levy force with changing up the units (Remove Volksstrum & add in Heavy Armoured Inf or vice versa) pictures of those to come.
The 2nd force were turned into a Ostfront Mid-Late War Winter force.
Today I finished the last but of Armour in the form of a Stummel.
