Its the Happiest time of the Year!!! Oldhammer Season!!! Part I

Hi all,

For the past couple of years the weeks before thanksgiving have become my favorite of time year...the Oldhammer season!!

Once again this year I was able to attend two amazing events on back to back weekends and both were a ton of fun.

The first was the Oldhammer in the Jerz event hosted by Nigel Wood in Little Falls New Jersey.  There were quite a few good games...lots of excellent trading...and most importantly fantastic TACOS!!

The second Oldhammer event of the Fall was Monolithcon!!  A small event hosted in the middle of America somewhere in a lonely and desolate corn field.

For this post I want to share with you some of the pictures I took while at the Jerz event...I'll put the Monolithcon shots up in a couple of days...

Highlights of 2nd Oldhammer in the Jerz...

 It was a great event...and as you can see there were lots of great games being played.

Thanks Nigel!!!

Chaos Renegades...3rd Squad...a beginning...

Howdy all,

***Insert excuse for long time between posts here***

Alright...now that we have that out of the way...

This fall has been a flurry of old school gaming activity and I have a lot of catching up to do so lets carry on with the Renegades.

As part of an abortive attempt to take part in the Old World Army Challenge-Squad Sprint...I have completed the first few models for Renegade Squad 3.

I started with the heavy weapon trooper for the squad and opted to go with this multi-melta guy in a fairly muted color scheme.  In addition to the heavy weapon trooper I went for two great "Nurgle Marines" and, of course, painted them in the least Nurgle-y paint jobs I could think of.  For Old Tentacle Face I went with Yellow and Blue and I like to think of the Tentacle arm flamer guy as a corrupted Storm trooper...hence the white armor.
