Title: I am back - Wargaming Workshop back in business
Post by: Helge on August 01, 2019, 03:22:58 PM
Greetings all. After a couple of years of absence, I am finally back to blogging. Veterans of the forum might remember my quests to paint the Specialist Games range, including plenty of EPIC armies over on the Tactical Commands sister forum. Old logs here:

Armed with a new camera, I will now be re-photographing my old collection as well of course chronicle my progress against the miniature mountain. At current count, this means almost 8,000 models to photograph and about 4,000 still to paint. On with it!

For now, I have updated the Mordheim section https://wargamingworkshop.com/games-armies/mordheim/  (https://wargamingworkshop.com/games-armies/mordheim/) of my blog with new photos and will be working through other updates in the Specialist Games section. Updates will come over time. During the break from blogging, I did continue painting so there is also a backlog of Mordheim, Blood Bowl and Warmaster armies to post. Still, much more remains to be painted...

As teasers, below are some additions to my Mordheim range that just got uploaded (everything else is just new photos of older models).

Mordheim is a blind spot for me so I'm always happy to see more  models for that!  Welcome back!

Welcome back. I discovered your splendid wargaming room maybe a year ago, and subsequently the rest of your website. It was a joy to pour through. I'm glad to hear updates will be coming forth!

Thanks for the kind welcome. I just updated a new warband. The mighty Averlander in traditional style. More pics at https://wargamingworkshop.com/games-armies/mordheim/averlander-warband/

Updated the Battlefleet Gothic section with new photos of my initial four fleets:

Imperial Fleet https://wargamingworkshop.com/games-armies/battlefleet-gothic/imperial-fleet-2/ (https://wargamingworkshop.com/games-armies/battlefleet-gothic/imperial-fleet-2/)

Same for me. I do love this orc shaman. And i had not spotted those beastman ahead. Nice dark tones to paint them in dark way too !

In the Special Games section, I still have to re-photograph the Warmaster and EPIC sections - those will take a while - and then a couple of recently painted Mordheim warbands  (and of course paint a whole bunch more :)). Getting there!

Nice!  Are these official models or kit bashed? I'm not familiar with the Mordheim range.

Most of the models are stock from the original release back in the 90s. The exception of this are the left model above and - on the blog page - the archers and extra henchmen. Those are plastic models from the Frostgrave Cultist kit with a bit of tweaking. I think they fit quite well into the range.

And the last new Mordheim warband. Now I actually need to paint some more. I still have a few warband to do: Lizardmen, Marienburger, Ostlander, Woof Elves plus a whole pile of hired swords.

Pics of the warband here

Shifting into Warhammer (hopefully this is ok here). First army to get done will be Orcs and Goblins. Two units of core infantry for now with more pics on the blog.

AoS has kind of made Oldhammer a Specialist Game now, surely? ;-)

In any case it's a beautiful regiment of the kind I used to gaze at lovingly in old 90s White Dwarf pages.
