Beyond the Gates of Antares - Boromites Pt.2 - Test Paint Scheme

Afternoon loyal readers and Bots, can't forget you after all, when the Machines rise up remember I said Hi and I'm willing to sell out the Human Population hard... Aham..

So after the last post discussing bases (Part 1) I decided they were to large and switched over to the lipped bases. While only a few MM smaller they do look much better.

Warlord Games also got back to me about my missing Boromite Work Gang heads so hopefully they'll come in the post too before too long.

Speaking of Warlord Games I may or may not have placed a order while on the site for the Hardback Rulebook + free £20 Box and the Boromite Dice Bag + Dice.

Beyond the Gates of Antares - Boromites Pt.1

Well I went and did it didn't I?

Yep another game for me to spend money on!

So if you remember from this POST I was ummming and eerrring on what race I should do (If I did of course start the game).

So Boromite's won out by simply being nice chunky metals over annoying multi-part plastic kits.

So despite the musing over the Blog's name and direction I've been busy painting (Nothing changes there).

So what's new?

I've mostly been painting the Levy (Free Squad in Bolt Action for all flavours of Chinese), but also knocked out 2 Cav and 2 Big Sword's and a Bodyguard.

Time for a new name?

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?


Whats your thoughts?

Ta Ta for now.

Beyond the Gates of Antares - Shall I?

So whats all this then eh?

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.

Bolt Action - Operation Sealion/Dad's Army

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.

I already had one section finished so I already had a good start.

Anyway enough talking I'm sure you want to see some pictures, being me shite pictures but whatcha expect? hehe

Konflikt '47 - German Waffen SS ''Terror Squad''

'Ello my loyal OoaB readers.

Now I've mentioned K'47 a fair few times on this Blog but have never shown you any finished units.

Well today I bring forth the first completed unit:

Waffen SS ''Terror Squad''

This Terror Squad is made up from members of the 33rd Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS Charlemagne (1st French).

Armed with a number of unsual weapons like the Gustloff VG 1-5 assault rifle, Krummlauf assault rifle (fires around corners!) &  Luftfaust hand-held anti-aircraft rocket launchers.
