Oldhammer Orcs and Dwarfs

Going through my boxes of stuff to see what I actually have as due to loosing my Job I won't be able to buy new stuff for a while.  I decided to get out all of my Dwarfs and Orcs.  I have hoarded them for two long and haven't painted any since the late 80's early 90's (Apart from an odd orc/goblin war machine around 2002).  I figured its time I got these out and did something with them.  So a big pile of stuff.


Now I either sell a load or all of it which I would probably regret or paint it.  There is lots to paint and some needs stripping.  Now my painting has improved since the 1980s not that much but still enough.  Now I can't bear to strip everything as it will just take too long so I will experiment with washes, updating some colours and changing the bases over to brown (Just don't like the green bases anymore unless they are done extremely well which I don't have the patience to do).

So starting with bugmans

As I painted them originally


Repainted the metal and added a couple of washes.

They do look a lot different in real life rather than this picture

Bolt Action Jungle Terrain Part 3 Base Boards

This is the start of 4 Terrain boards for Jungle Terrain in Bolt Action.

The first three boards are land based. One will have a road, one paths and one a hill/bunker.  The last one will be a beach landing terrain.









I have base the basic structure for the three boards and started to work on the Hill.




Top part is separate so I can put models in the bunker.


Making the hill modular so I can just use the top part with out the bunker part.  


Sorting out some cork and plaster rock to add some texture to the hill
