Christmas in September?!?




Yeah it seems it comes around earlier every year, the shops start getting in the crap and the websites start springing up to annoy us with endless cheer (Read: More tat).

But sometimes..

Just sometimes..

You spot something that makes ya smile.

Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.5 - Hobgoblin Rōnin on Temple Lion

So how are we doing today my fine readers of OoaB!

Well England lost their Rubgy game last night.. silly buggers!

But even that news hasn't dampened out my shine today as tomorrow I start my new job (I was at current a carer for my Wife, but she is back working herself now) so I'm back into the workforce and earning a couple of quid a month.

Now that might mean a reduced post output from me while I get used to working again but I don't forsee it being too bad to keep the painting and hobby running at full force.

Anyway on a related note this post is a tad early being next months To4G entry but I got it finished while I knew I had the time spare.

So I bring forth!!

Chico Does Mordheim: Pt.13 Orc Warband and Scenery completed

'Ello my OoaB Readers!

Enjoying the Rugby World Cup?

I am!

Anyway in the last post I was asked to do a shot of all the finished Mordheim scenery together so far, so off I trucked to my local gaming Club tonight and took a few shots.

Now as you can see, there's not much yet but it's slowly building up.

Chico Does Mordheim: Pt.12 Ruined Guardhouse & Small Ruin

So progress continues of the building of Chicoheim despite a large part of my time being on my To4OG Hobgoblins and watching the Rugby World Cup (My only sporting passion).

2 more ruins have been finished a Guardhouse and a small ruined building.

''Da Court'' is the name of my Orc Warband which are based on a Royal Court.

Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.4 - Cavalcade Greenskins

So following on from the last To4OG post about Tales of the Dragon Kings range by Blackhat I kept looking for more alternatives supplement my Citadel Hobgoblins.

And I came upon Cavalcade Wargames Armies of the East owned and run by Forlorn Hope Games which long time readers of OoaB should know that I'm a massive fan off mostly because they stock the wonderful Ex-Grenadier range.

So what goodies do they have to offer?

Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.3 - Tales of the Dragon Kings

So what's all this about I hear you proclaim!?!

Well as we all know by now I'm taking part in the Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers and I'm building up a Hobgoblin force (Or you should do, or why would you be hear).

Now do to the force being a Allied List they never had many options and they are rather a pain to get from Ebay and various trade sites/forums/pages.

So I started looking elsewhere for options and after seeing this POST by the Oldhammer favourite Goblin Lee about a Chaos Nippon force which uses Black Hat Miniatures Tales of the Dragon Kings range and thought with the odd weapon swap or head chop they'll add some flavour quite nicely.

Chico Does Mordheim: Pt.11 Ruined Buildings No.2 & 3 finished

So Mordheim scenery is coming together quite well given the limited kits I could/can afford (Which since then have hunted down a few other options to expand though) being as you know on a tight budget.

Anyway Ruins 2 and 3 are now finished and they were made from Warlord Games Ruined Farmhouse, Balsa Wood and a host of bits from my Bitz Box.

Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers - Pt.2 The first 100pts

Well as you no doubt know from this POST that myself along with James, Paul & Steve are doing the Tale of 4 Oldhammer Gamers.

For my force I went with Hobgoblins, sadly the list in Warhammer Armies happens to just be a allied list so I have 6 options total to choose from (General, Battle Standard, Shaman, Hobgoblins, Elite Hobgoblins and Hobhounds).

Now feck that for limited choice, even at 1000pts that'll be a dull ol' force to say the least.

So I need to expand my options, so flicking though the 3rd Ed rulebook (After asking where the rules were from a fellow To4G) I saw the rules and points cost for the Rocket Launcher (50pts) so adding the cost of 3 Hobgoblin crew it comes to 65pts..

Chico Does Mordheim: Pt.9 Ruined Building No.1

So along with sorting out my Hobgoblins for the Tale of 4 Oldhammers I've still been busy building Chicoheim™. After deciding on using on the Warlord Games ruins it's all coming together rather quickly, plus I have to say I'm rather impressed with the outcome.
