Small Nomadic movements

Well the holiday season has not proved as productive from a painting and modelling perpesctive as I had hoped, but I did get to play a very fun game with Whiskey Priest and also jumped up into the loft and found the models that I will use for the other members of my starting Nomad gang.

But first an update on the small amount of progress on my leader:

He now has the central (tall) part of his hat and I have filled the gap at the join of the sword hand. Next decision is whether to give him an Inca style shawl or a fur lined cloak. Opinions welcome!

Now for the remaining gang members:

The brave will be my 'raw recruit' - armed with just a handbow. The other two will be 'Hardened Fighters' - both armed with sword, stub gun (from the sprue of weapons at their feet) and shield (I aim to make riot shields from plasticard). All three will be heavily converted (the Tallarn less so) to be wrapped up with headscarfs etc.

Well, that's my mini update and my last post of 2014. I intend 2015 to see weekly posts, which means weekly progress on something. 

Happy New Year one and all!

Inquisitor Nkurika hunts a seasonal heretic

Given what will be my last gaming opportunity of 2014, last night I headed over to the home of Whiskey Priest for a bit of Rogue Trader action.

Once I had met his delightful wife (how is it that so many gamers manage to punch above their weight in this area?) and been introduced to two junior 'Whiskey Adepts', we settle down to a seasonal senario.

The plot was a simple one: my Inquisitor (a part played by Lady Nkiruka - My Sensei from the BOYL quickening game) was charged with stopping a Heretic. This red-wearing idolator, known to some as Santa, needed an 'item' from a space elf trader. Nkurika had hired a small band of local thugs to suppliment her usual band. The success criteria were very straight forward. Stop the deal or kill the heretic!

Nomadic Meanderings

Well, I've been away from the hobby for too long! A new job in a challenging school has left no time to attend to my Oldhammer projects.

So what do I do when I get a second to pursue my hobby? Start a new project of course!

Inspired by the fun I had playing confrontation at BOYL2014 and miniatures converted and painted by Whiskey Priest and Axiom, I'm making a Nomad Gang.
