The Painting Continues... Slowly


Hey  Friends, 
Followers of this blog will know I am slowly easing my way back into the Oldhammer world after the birth of our baby boy and it killed me to miss this years BOYL after attending the first year, this years constant coverage was brilliant, a big thank you to all involved. Now fitting painting miniatures into your baby routine is very hard but the odd half hour when I wasn't exhausted I managed to slip into the spare room and knock out a few more Chaos Thugs to add to my regiment which is now 32 painted strong, only another 40+ unique miniatures to do, I also managed to prep up loads of C27 and C38 Chaos Beastmen which will stand alone from my RoC era Chaos Beastmen as a unit of 'True' Beastmen.


First we have a converted 'Crusher' from White Dwarf 82, you might have noticed that I have painted another version of this miniature before but this conversion with eye stalks was in a trade from Robtimus Prime over in our Oldhammer Trading Company Facebook group and I felt it was too nice to dismantle so I cleaned it up with Dettol and painted it.  I finished him off with a classic Arcane Armorial shield transfer.

Next we have 'MadAxe Martin' another classic Chaos Thug who first appeared in White Dwarf 92, strange that such a brute would have the name Martin but then I remembered the superb historical/fantasy movie Flesh and Blood 1985 with Rutger Hauer as the hero Martin, really if you haven't seen it watch it asap it's brilliant.

Next we have 'Punter Dunter' another White Dwarf 92 Chaos Thug, not much to say about this guy, crazy new wave hair cut and a severed head.

Next we have 'Stab Stab' another White Dwarf 92 Chaos Thug, I like this guy I think he gets his name from the two daggers tied to his spear shaft, a totally original chaos weapon.

And last but not least an old school Chaos Beastman, I think he resembles a Tortoise but some say he is a Turtle but I think not, I don't seem to be able to find any reference to him so if you have a link to an advert/catalogue page send to to me please on the comments.

  1. I've never seen 'Stab Stab' before...what a great model. I could find use for him.

    Lovely painting on all, but Martin's pale skin stands out. Nice work :)

  2. The tortoise is really great, but the eye stalks on Crusher are brilliant.
