Title: Return to Oldenheim... or 'Citadel - The Golden Years'
Post by: V on October 16, 2018, 11:48:57 AM
As a means to get through the small mountain of Oldhammer miniatures, I decided to mix my two favoutire things - Oldhammer figures and Mordheim!

Thus the city of Oldenheim was born, a place where miniatures from the 1980s (with a few exceptions as long as they are OOP) can fight and delve for treasure without fear of being too small or not detailed enough when attacked by a more modern plastic warrior.

In Oldenheim, the ruins of the Golden Citadel look down on the city and its 80's night every night...

To start with I have been working on a Carroburg Warband, always best to start with some humans before moving on too other things. The Warband of Gunther Drakos so far...

I like this guys very much. Really nice minis with a great paint job. Interesting choice of colours, too.

I think you've made those minis look just fine - they'd stand with any new stuff (well, maybe not in height...  ;) )

without fear of being too small or not detailed enough when attacked by a more modern plastic warrior.

So a little appraisal as to where I am to date with the various Warbands intended for Oldenheim...

Probably the nearest to completion are the Norse Raider Warband of Harald Sitric, a long time menace to Oldenheim from before the days of the towns destruction...

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2018/10/66792724-IMG_9661-Edited-770.jpg)


Next is another local warband - a group of Ostlanders, with an Ogre Mercenary in tow...

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2018/10/24931401-IMG_9659-Edited-770.jpg)


Then we have the main opposition to explorers and adventurers - The Warbands composed of the followers of the Chaos Gods...

Title: Re: Return to Oldenheim...
Post by: V on October 19, 2018, 08:16:21 AM
Thank you chaps.

Another warband that is well on the way to be finished are the Goblin Raiders of Mama Zog. One of the first Citadel boxsets that I bought back in 1984 was the SS4 Goblin Raiding Party set and I've always had a fondness for that set and the associated early solid based Goblins from the C12 and C13 ranges. So with that in mind, one warband I wanted to feature (especially as my Dwarf Army always likes new opposition too) was one that was entirely composed of Goblins!

So the Goblin Raiders of Mama Zog was born...

Oldenheim also needs some ‘Hired Swords’ that suit the theme…

This one may not be that much use!

Spent the afternoon sorting through boxes for more suitable types to base up and undercoat for Oldenheim... Managed to sort a few from the Chaos and Human Lead Mines, but still need to venture deeper into the mines tomorrow to sort out more Norse and Greenskins...

Human selection...

Naughty Chaos types...

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2018/11/11413941-IMG_20181104_160248_826.jpg)


Not sure they will all get done, but it's a lot easier to find stuff now. Though the trip to the mines has raised more questions...

How do I get a Chaos Centaur warband into the narrative?

How to get a Chaos Centaur warband into the narrative?

Why, good sir, have you been drinking too much in the tavern again? I really shouldn't have to remind you of the Black Forest just east of our fair town of Oldenheim, now should I?

Aye, the Black Forest, a place where evil dwells. If only they would stay there. No, the dark creatures have decided that they, too, deserve the riches our Golden Citadel has to offer us.
Title: Re: Return to Oldenheim...
Post by: V on November 05, 2018, 10:10:01 AM
Not the Black Forest... Its too dangerous in there.

Granted the rewards are great, so they say, but that old Wizards Tower and the herds of Beastmen make it a dangerous place...

Just stop at the Coaching Inn on the Oldenheim Road... far safer...
Title: Re: Return to Oldenheim...
Post by: Daniel36 on November 05, 2018, 11:05:31 AM
Aye, and if it only were the Beastmen, but no... Travel deep enough and you will find the dreadful giant spiders. Not to mention the Forest Goblin tribe that calls the forest its home... Lucky for us they are frightened of us when alone...

Yet, they rarely travel alone, now don't they?

Quote
The port town of Oldenheim sits across the junction of several trade routes of the Empire, both by road and by sea. When the invasion from the northlands hit the city it was partly ruined during the siege and then partly occupied by the Chaos forces. But the invaders were held in the eastern edge of the city when the seven bridges over the Tessel were brought down by the last survivors of the City Guard. In trying to bypass the Tessel outside the city, the invaders split force was brought to battle by a combined force of men, dwarfs and elves – Known as the Grand Alliance in memory of a former allied army that had defeated the Orcish army of King F’yarr many years before. Once the force outside had been driven off and routed, the forces of the Alliance began to invest the remaining invaders in the city. After four months of fighting, the entire city of Oldenheim was declared liberated.

Or so they said…

But the scars of ruined and razed buildings are not the only reminders of the short war. Now, a few months after the fighting has ceased, the work begins to reclaim and rebuild the city. But the East Quarter, once the bustling commercial heart of the city and home to both financial and goods trading houses, remains a ruined maze of buildings and strange happenings. With the casualties sustained by the City Guard and Alliance troops in the fighting, the Guildmasters of the city have begun offering high rewards to volunteer warbands who are brave, or some say stupid, enough to enter into the ruins and recover both property and treasure as well as clear out the remaining vestiges of the chaos army that had descended from the north.

But the fragile state of security in the region is cause for concern. Not only do small groups of Chaos followers remain at large within the city ruins, but some from the enemy’s field army sought refuge in the Black Forest which straddles several nearby roads and caravan routes. The forest has always been a place of dread and darkness, and in recent months this has grown ten-fold. The same Guildmasters are now recruiting those warbands to also guard caravans or even venture into the forest to eliminate threats. The bounty paid for the heads of Chaos followers can be lucrative, if a sometimes fatal way of making a living.

But the threats don’t stop there. From Norsca the war also brought an increase in raids from the Norse tribes near to the area. While not all are followers of the Dark Gods, all the Norse see an opportunity for pillage and plunder when it arises. The chaos and confusions has also seen the Goblin tribes of the Black Forest and the Barrow Hills become more confident in raiding and striking at the city itself at times. The lure of treasure, goods and slaves is high for all… even some of the hired warbands are not adverse to do some of their own pillaging and treasure seeking and it has become common place to see fights occur between the hired Guild warbands, with some of these feuds even spreading into the largely undamaged Western Quarter of the city.

To say the war and invasion was over might have sounded like a victory call to those far away in their castles and cities, but to those in Oldenheim the war seemed far from over.

Excerpt from A History of the Lost Cities of the Old World by Franz Stienhager quoting the report of Guildmarshal Klaus von Uberich on the current state of Oldenheim when he visited the city on behalf of the Moneylenders Guild.

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2018/11/57108000-IMG_20181119_230755_207-770.jpg)

First up is Maximillian the Brave from the F2 Fighters range in Spring 1987. He will be taking the role of the second champion in the Carroburg Warband and his arrival brings the warband to its starting allocation and is thus complete... For now.

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2018/11/87692288-IMG_20181119_231115_426-770.jpg)


Next we start a new warband using The Moon Duke taken from the 1986 boxed set BC7 - Heroic Fighters of Known World. He will be the Captain of a new warband composed of soldiers drawn from the Deathjacks Regiment who are still serving in the city on clean up duties, though some would say that the mission happily dovetails with the regiments love of looting...

Captain Karl Mond - 2nd Company, The Deathjacks;

What paints do you typically use and is it standard base/wash/highlight?

What paints do you typically use and is it standard base/wash/highlight?

I use a selection of GW paints, Foundry and Vallejo Model Colour. Inks and washes are solely GW ones with the use of AK and Mig Production enamel filters on some models.

I tend to use a base colour, with a wash and then several highlights following reapplication of the base colour. On occasion I then reshade with inks, as I did with the Moon Duke to accentuate the folds in the cloak which lost a little depth as they were highlighted.

Back again with the start of another Chaos Unit...

As my Chaos Army is loosely based on a selection of cards from the 'Chaos Marauders' game, one of the units will be Chaos Dwarfs and Goblins!

Scarsol Smashskul, from the initial C16 Chaos Dwarf release during 85/86 by the Perry Twins has seen his armour rust up in the 35 years or so waiting to be painted... is seen here with Blimblam Blimblamblamblom one of the 1987 C12 Goblin Javelinmen... Get the feeling they were running low of naming ideas at that point.

 Great looking Chaos Dwarves.Love the colours that you have went with on them.

Lovely additions since I last checked in.

Those are proper Chaos Dwarves, unlike the strange chaps that wear chimneys on their heads.
AND they look proper gorgeous!

Gotta love those two Goblin heroes too, so full of character.

These look fantastic! While the modern miniatures are technically well done, there is just a charm to the older figures that has been lost over the ages.  Glad  to see new life put into these.

Excellent paintjob, Piers. Although I think that you wouldn't have picked that palette back in 1987. Those paints were much brighter back in the day, particularly with elves… I remember pink and blue horrors - LITERALLY!!!  lol

Been too busy with work this lockdown to do much, but finally painted a model this year. I did however acquire a large box of Oldhammer Citadel figures from my neighbour... lockdowns are weird in rural Ireland like that.

Anyway...

Added another model to the slowly growing Norse warband and this time its Gladius from the box set ‘Heroic Fighters of the Known World’ from 1986.

This is the original version of Gladius before the model was revised to cast easier.

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2021/02/17124332-IMG_20210213_134056_561.jpg)

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2021/02/31827819-IMG_20210213_134145_687.jpg)


After the initial releases the set was revised to make the casting process easier and less prone to failure. Gladius was turned slightly and had his head moved to be in line with his body for easier casting. I painted the second version for my mates collection...

Wanted something different to do so painted up a rescue job.

This beaten up F9 Feudal Men-at-Arms was missing his slotta tab, needed paint stripping and had to have some cutting a reshaping done to remove the mess made when the shield stud had been removed.

But since his release in July 1986, ‘Dieter’ and many of the Feudal range, are now available from Wargames Foundry.

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2021/06/52408318-IMG_20210613_094634_573.jpg)

In Warhammer Fantasy they don’t come much more bad than the original ‘Lord Krell’.

This is his first incarnation as a pre-slotta model from 1984 in the C17 Series of Skeletons. He would rise to prominence in 1986 as the named Lord Krell in the Terror of the Lichemaster campaign pack.

(https://images.beastsofwar.com/2021/06/68655315-IMG_20210613_032312_126.jpg)


Finally the ugly ‘Gotalot’ from the often overlooked 1985 C48 Gargoyle series by Aly Morrison. Want more of them… fancy a unit of stone gargoyles to cause panic and mayhem in Oldenheim.

First unit for my 2ed WFB Empire Army... this shows how all the random models completed for various Oldenheim warbands come together to form units for the army.

Gives a real rag tag and varied look to the units of men at arms this way and reminds of the old adverts with everything painted differently!

So... a unit of 20 Men at Arms, with hand weapons, light armour and shields;
