I’ve finally finalized my entry for the Oldhammer Legacy 2015 warband. Nothing fancy, a little female dwarf warrior from Asgard’s old Dwarf Warrior range. Sculpted by Jes Goodwin, unless I’m mistaken. They are still available from The Viking Forge and I can heartily recommend the range. Quality sculpts that sit comfortably next to most dwarf models. They’re even a little on the large side. Definitely heroic 28.

Not much to say really, I’ve followed the restrictions on palette as given in the thread. As a first for me, I painted gems. Never tried that before. I really liked how the one on the “backside” of the hilt (top right) turned out. The other ones are fine for a first attempt but don’t look very convincing.

Onwards and upwards, here’s to a brand new year and let’s hope it’ll be a productive one. I’m getting a new baby in March so chances are I won’t get much done at all hobby-wise. The theme of this year is “cleaning out the closet”, so I’ll be revisiting stuff stuck in limbo or primed hell. That means, I’ll start working on my two final commission models again soon. Yay. Never again – I feel horrible for letting the client wait so long.

I’ve finally finished up this little warband of chaotic barbarians, sculpted by Jes Goodwin for Asgard in the mid 80s and released as a box set called “Barbarian Personalities“. They are now being manufactured and sold by Alternative Armies and are quite a bargain. The ogre is another Goodwin sculpt, from Citadel’s C23 range. The astute reader will remember when I posted about receiving these guys. I’m very happy to have them finished the same year I got them! They were all painted by Paul “v2″ Sanderson, and a great job he did! I can not recommend the man enough. Fast, well painted, very communicative and all round top bloke! I finished the bases and took the photos, but that’s about all I did.

Here’s the roster for the whole happy gang! I’ve used their names as given by Asgard, and tried to make all models individual stats wise. It’ll be a challenging warband to play, due to them being all different.

Kern the Reaver (60 pts). Q3, C3. Leader


Clonar Sternbrow
(27 pts). Q4, C3. Group fighter

Alaric Mancleaver (30 pts). Q4, C4.

Koth Beasthelm (35 pts). Q4, C4. Savage

Hax Ragged (35 pts). Q4, C4. Heavy armour

Taran Firedaughter (38 pts). Q3, C3. Berserk

Will Skegling (30 pts). Q3, C3.

Mad Rollo (23 pts). Q4, C3.

Arflane the Archer (44 pts). Q3, C3. Shooter: long

Aurok Storrirkin (46 pts). Q3, C4. Steadfast

Skai Wolfbane (36 pts). Q3, C3. Forrester


Two Cuts
(36 pts). Q3, C3. Stealth

Old One-Horn (54 pts). Q4, C4. Big, Long move, Mutant.

Once again I feel the need to apologize for my photos. I still haven’t gotten to grips with the new camera, and struggle with both lighting and focus. Oh well, in time I think they’ll shape up.

These guys really help my annual total, which is now 84 painted – 254 acquired = -170! I did receive a few snotlings the other day (cheers Ti!), but I’m not including them in the annual total as they’re crew for the pump wagon which is in itself one model only. I also traded some snotlings away, so I guess it all evens out.
