Back to the beginning......

We moved house recently after 15 years and whilst I was emptying the attic i came across a number of boxes that contained all my old Warhammer rules, figures, paints and White Dwarf magazines (the paints are still useable after 20+ years). These were all from 1980's and covered 1st, 2nd and 3rd editions of the rules, whilst I had many happy memories of playing these games I planned to sell the whole lot off once we got settled in the new house.

However, a couple of 'Oldhammer' blogs I found recently have rekindled my enthusiasm for these figures and rules (especially the third edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle) and so I've decided to keep them all and start painting and collecting them again.

The spirit of Oldhammer is summed in the 'Oldhammer contract' over on the Realm of Zhu' blog:

The Oldhammer Contract

This is going to be the ethos that I'll be following with this project.

I'm still sorting through the figures and will post some pictures of them over the coming weeks. Initially this will be a sideline project whilst I complete a couple of others that I'm working on. Once these are complete though I'll switch more of my time to this project.

I'm really looking forward to getting back into Oldhammer and sharing the journey.
