Return to Oldenheim...
« 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.

Good show.  8) Cue the Banshees!

Cue disco music and shadowy figures with big hair and neon wristbands.  lol

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...




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




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

I feel like this should be a proper game! Oldenheim sounds like a game I would totally play!

Great selection of vintage lead and wonderful brushwork. Looking forwards to more news from the forsaken city of Oldenheim!

Great idea, lovely minis and painting, pretty cool.
Are you using any mods for Mordheim?

The Sommerlund Guard Captain is my fave :)

These are lovely. I really enjoy the mix of figures combined with your lovely painting. Those Ostlanders are the stand-out figures for me though!

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...
