Enrich your Blades with Deeds of Violence

So  with a busy schedule up to Oldhammer USA I thought I might get a quick jump on everything so I am not rushed days before.  The only thing that is missing from my army is 2 chaos dwarfs.  I'm not holding my breath on getting these before the Oldhammer Day though.  However I have finally Stillmania'ed my list and am posting it for viewing.  Let me know what you think.

Dread Banners

I have been having some trouble figuring out what I want to do with my chaos army banners.  For a quick fix I had tried printing off a number of internet images to suffice.  They were not up to snuff.

Did I score a production copy of 3E.?


*Update:  So the photobucket fail hit this post, and I was reediting it today.  Then it hit me...duh Why didn't you ask anyone at BOYL while you were there.  Totally slipped my mind.  That quote on the 3rd page got me thinking again, and would like to get some concrete answers on this.  If anyone has any leads or ideas on the matter it would be much appreciated.  Is this a production copy or what?

The Great Cattle Raid!.....and your thoughts?

So I haven't been doing much lately as work, life, lack of inspiration...well you know. So the other night I woke up at 23:00 and just could not get back to sleep. So I came down stairs and turned the computer on and I had a thought. Let's roll up a RoC champ. Well not so much roll, but more tweak what I already had. I had planned for awhile to turn Schmendrick and a few other figures into a game able warband. So that night I got all my stats squared away. Then with the wife and daughter out of town this weekend, I decided to rebase the figures as they just did not look cohesive. So then I thought why not get a solo game in since no one was around. So for the pure enjoyment of the forum, all from a night of insomnia, and an inspiration to rebase figures! I give you......

A Quest for Stillmania: Raise the Levy

Collecting an Army WD 193

Nigel takes us through the steps of creating an army the Stillhammer way.

We start of with a quick overview, where he states that raising an army is a methodical thing that we should really take some deep thought in before we start to recruit our soldiers.

So what army should you start with.  Well this quote says it all, "If I were suddenly transported into the warhammer world by a wizard whose army would I rather end up in?"

A Quest for Stillmania

Hello fellow Stillmaniacs,  Let's get ready and dive into some Stillhammer!
I don't know about you but I find myself constantly thumbing through my collection of White Dwarfs.  Issue 197 is one I come back to again and again.  It has actually vaulted it self into the nightstand bookshelf in a place of lauded glory.  Oh yes back on topic....Stillmania.

Here we are in June 1996 over a decade since the release of Warhammer 3E. and Realm of Chaos.  During the "GW Red Period" it has become a scene of tourney play and "Herohammer".  But do not despair fellow Oldhammerer's  there is a shining beacon of hope and his name is Nigel Stillman.  We all  know him as the man who authored Warhammer armies, and for a period would write an article here and there.  But it would seem for the most part that Nigel would stay in the shadows.  Then came Warhammer armies Empire, he would then continue on to write several more Warhammer army books: Wood Elves, Lizardmen, Bretonnia.

I still can't get enough of the Stillmania articles though.  They only spanned about 7-10 White Dwarf issues.  But these words of wisdom shine down from above on us mere mortals.  Harkening back to the days of Oldhammer and once again showing that it is okay to play the game in our childhood innocence and have fun!

Now this is an ethos I could strive to follow......
WD Issue 221 p. 75

So journey with me back to the time of Stillhammer and become a Stillmaniac like me!
