Christmas Comic Carnival: Nazi Zombies vs Chaos Renegades

Here we are with the next installment of our Christmas Comic Carnival!!!
If you missed the first one here it is:

Christmas Comic Carnival: Campaign Game One

I have a bit of an obsession with Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies.  No not that new crap!  The original game and Der Reise.  There's nothing like setting up on that cat walk and seeing how long you can survive. Hours if you were wondering....hours! ;)

So as part of the backlog from Monolith con...Saturday morning I set up a quick and easy Zombie scenario to get everyone ready for the rest of the day.

Looking back on it it was pretty rudimentary given that I just slapped it together.  I think though with a couple tweaks this could become a cool recurring scenario to get my zombie  horde out on the table.

Let me know what you think, or if you have any ideas for running zombie games.

Christmas Comic Carnival: Campaign Game One

The campaign has begun!  The first game is played and ready for you in a wonderful comic report.  If you are not sure what I'm blabbering on about do have a look here and here

I rolled up a raid and capture for my first scenario.  An unusual character has appeared in the wastes.  A small girl who claims to be from another place.  she meets Vollrath and his band of chaos dwarfs along with Nigel deep in the jungle.  Vollrath is quite taken with this little time traveler and ask her to join his band.

Meanwhile Slaggo Mad Mort's wizard has senses the disturbance, and tells Mad Mort he should go and capture her.  He sets out with a large contingent and tracks Vollrath and Scarlet to a camp in some ancient ruins.  With no where to go Vollrath forms a defense but knows their chances are slim.

Scarlet pulls out a small device and says she will handle it with a wink.  Dreads eyes slam open, where did that voice come from?  "Yo We'n Trble Come Qk!  All she knew was Vollrath and Nigel were connected to this message.  She alerts Vasken to send a releif column into the jungle in search of the dwarf band.

Things are about to get Ka-razy!  Enjoy. ;)

Painting Astropolis to populate Graveskul!

I picked up these lovely miniatures from Alex and Igor to fill out my town populace some more.  I think it's fun to have a bunch of townsfolk living their little lead lives out amongst our grand conflicts on the table top.  LOL

Monolith-con comic back log*

The campaign season is upon us!

Well I hope anyway. LOL  With selling my house, moving into a temporary place, and building a new house things are rather cramped at the moment.  A guy can dream though right?

So for a while now I have wanted to run a campaign much like Secundus over at Iron Mitten.  You should really check that out. 

I had settled on using Rick Priestley's campaign system.  He has a version of his go to rules in the back of Warmaster Ancients Armies.

Oldhammer Weekend Giant Mega Battle Report Extrvaganza

 Zero Twentythree had been discussing bringing his giant only army to Oldhammer weekend.  I jumped at the chance to take on the challenge of facing this mighty horde.

Looks at those stats!  Strength 7's, Toughness 6's, 5-6 wounds! A variety of powerful attack combo's. This was going to be epic, and I was not disappointed.

Read a long with me my friends.  It's is a tale of legendary proportions.  As Black Vasken the Tattered Prince and his Goonie Hordes battle with Big Dick's Giant Gang.

The Scale Creeps HeroQuest Hero Quest Challenge

Brave readers for this Quest you may call me Mentor...if you have made it this far you must have conquered Barak Tor, recovered the Spirit Blade and slain the cruel Witch Lord.   But alas what we feared most has occurred.  The Witch Lord has returned and with him the minions of undeath creep across the land....
The  Scale Creep invited me to take part in their Heroquest challenge.
My love for Heroquest is well known among the Oldhammer community. So do yourself a favor and head over and check out all the posts.

Into the Void

I asked Zhu if he would mind me using the void warriors in a battle report before I sent them his way, he graciously agreed.  So now to figure out the scenario. 

Well Zhu actually sent me a little write up with some ideas from the last post. 
Very kind of him, that. ;)

So after reading through them an scenario begin to form.  Then I found this picture while surfing the net and it all came together.

Void Warriors from another Zhumension

If you don't remember awhile back Zhu was kind enough to make a brand new super cool blog banner for me.  In return I painted up some pre slotta chaos warriors for him.  They are the Void Warriors and they are here to drek shit up!

The Little Giant from Bear Island
From: MARS Minaitures 
HFH044 Medieval KidsI saw this figure a couple weeks ago, and it really inspired me.  I remembered I had these figures from Hasslefree.  After thinking on it for a little bit I figured with the right headswap I could totally pull it off.

Multi table battles

Stumbled upon this old article as we do.  Sometimes I skim over these brilliant articles for years with out realizing the gold that they provide.  Anyway it's a brilliant concept.  I know there has been talk about running a 24 hour game at one of the Oldhammer days in the future, which would be awesome in itself.

A weekend day long multitable battle or campaign though for me would be awesome!  Everyone bringing their army, with each battle fought dictating in some small way the final outcome of everyone else's battle.  Could be the stuff of legends!

OldWestHammer Battle Report: Kringer don't like people laughing (Historicon 2016)

OldWestHammer  I can see you raising your eyebrows already.  Well the idea came from Saturday morning cartoons and Spaghetti Westerns that I used to watch as a kid.  With my fantasy table I wanted to be able game fantasy and sci-fi on it.  With Bravestarr being one of my favorite cartoons as a child, the idea bored itself into my brain.  Plus my table already had an old west look, so I commissioned some buildings to look pseudo western and there you have it.  A crossover table that fits all my Oldhamma needs be it Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Rogue Trader, what have you.

Oldhammer invades Historicon 2016

So for those of you not in the know me and Bulldoglopez planned to meet up at Historicon for 4 days of rampaging Oldhammer madness!  We lasted three days before we were told to go home.  LOL  Actually more like the 12 hour drive home that said go to sleep Grove!  Doh

Space Ork Raider Test Model

 Got some time to try out my test scheme for my Waaagh!  I think I'm going to like it.  It's quick and effective.  The Black Teef led by the biggest baddest among them Skar Toof use black warpaint to daub there faces.  They also paint their teeth black hence the name Black Teef.

 The clan uses the wolf skull as their war totem.
Let me know what you think of the scheme!

Getting prepped for Historicon

I'm about to head East.  So I got busy getting everything prepped and packed.  I'm bringing everything for my Graveskul table, and as many figures as I can get away with. ;)
I think I might be bringing my whole basement!  Historicon doesn't know what is descending upon them!

Thrud and The Black Currant

I got these minis last week with my Zombicide Black Plague rewards.  I knew they were going to be the first ones I painted once I opened the box.  These figures ooze old skool and fit perfect into our Oldhammer culture.
