Warbands for Oldhammer Challenge!

Well , I got inspired by this:

and, in the interest of getting the most bang for my buck, I'm doing this!:

A true mixed bag. Gripping Beast mostly, w/ Foundry, Artizan, Renegade, Marauder and 99 cent Citadel. Saxons, Vikings, Norse-Gaels, Irish, and Romano-Brits playing the role of Irish, Norse and Scots in old East Albion! Doing a scenario based on the Tristan and Isolde story, either Warhammer 2nd ed. or some more skirmish friendly system, but all to help pave the way for my full Mcdeath campaign. Carboard buildings and moss-on-stick trees will set the scene;)

The boys are not even on their bases mostly, and will also complete my warbands for Dux Brit, 4 archers for Saxons, 4 for Brits. Bonus! Also a nice bard to help tell the tale of our adventure...

Very excited, to say the least! Great idea from whiskey priest to show just what this whole thing is about, that being mostly about having fun playing w/ yr damn toy soldiers!


  1. Very nice! I'm also thinking in a McDeath/ Albion direction for my own warband in response to this challenge, so all your work on the blog (including this) is very inspiring. Just shame you're at the other side of the pond (at least I think you are?) as would love to campaign against your guys! But with the power of the internet I'm interested to see how the stories of all our different forces intertwine.

  2. USA, Youngstown, NY to be exact. I guess we're only supposed to do 21 minis? Oops! Please post a link to whatever you are doing and we'll keep each other on track. (Hopefully!)

  3. Hi friend! Just found your blog through the 'How to Oldhammer' challenge. I'll be throwing my lot in as soon as I get a parcel from EM-4 minis...

    I also notice that our blogs are around the same age. (Mine's Good to meet a fellow journeyman!

  4. Loving the blog - cool paint jobs. Keep up the good work.
