Inchmurrin's Oldhammer fantasy gallery

As I've decided to stop practicing and do some proper figures I thought I would start this thread as a home for them.

I'm in the process of doing a "How to do Oldhammer" project but to avoid project doldrums I knocked up a couple of singles from parts lying about in the pile for a bit of light relief. The first finished is a walking head like the one on page 61 of Slaves to Darkness. He is plastic made from an Ogre Head and goblin feet.

The colour scheme is influenced by Dark Eldar style but i think it works well enough. Comments most welcome.

The other mini I worked on when avoiding the doldrums was a bits box special. I realised I had a 2nd generation bloodletter with a broken sword and the rear half of a fleshhound neither of which would be completed as standard. So I thought a centauroid might be of interest. Having finished it I was checking out old White Dwarfs and found a similar conversion in 118. Just shows that there is very little new in the world even the Oldhammer one. As always comments welcomed and encouraged.

Re: Inchmurrin's Oldhammer fantasy gallery

Very nice conversions! I at first did not recognize that the walking head was made up of the 6th ed parts, but thought it a genuine sculpt. You might want to try some more washes and highlights on your models to make them pop, just a tip. (I can PM you some simple but effective paint sequences, just say the word.) That centauroid is deserving of a better paintjob, since the conversion seems so natural and seamless. Looking forward to see what you come up with next!

Re: Inchmurrin's Oldhammer fantasy gallery

Thanks for the comments.

Clansman I agree the highlighting is a little underdone. I'm old style and rely on drybrush rather than the more skilled approach of edge used currently, but sometimes I over do it and then over compensate. I'll take you up on your offer and PM.

More repairs and chaos oddness on the way.

My latest single to keep me going when involved in longer term projects.

An armoured wight, as usual this was a damaged model needing in this case a new sword.

My latest work is this scholar or maybe magician. I've no idea who he is or manufacturer he came in a job lot and has a well made MDF base with his round base set in. I added a green stuff tiled finish. The scenery is also new to me and any identification of the scholar and or the furniture would be very welcome.

Book case is Ral Partha I believe. I'd assume the same of the altar but that would be a guess.

Re: Inchmurrin's Oldhammer fantasy gallery

Next up a barbarian in the traditional fantasy sense. I'm unhappy with the painting of the winged helm but it is a pretty imprecise sculpt - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. As usual a weapon added as his was lost.
