Oldhammer Weekend review. Part four.

Part one.

Part two

Part three.

Here is a bonus for you, the cabinet tour is still to come (I know, those of you who couldn't make it are getting fed up now, sorry). The bonus is the Golden Gobbo contest! Small, but perfectly formed.

A classic Slambo, looking very good indeed. I just love the intricate extra detail painted on the model and the lavish base too.


This beautiful Wardancer in subtle tones is from the skilled hand of Blue in VT. This entry was posted all the way from the U.S. which is something we will be looking to encourage in the future. Of course, you may be holding your own Oldhammer Weekend and inviting us to enter your competitions if Blue has his way! 


A stunning Chaos Champion conversion. This one was a cracking entry and it was a privilege to see up close, it's attributed to Fimm McCool I believe so thanks Fimm!


And the winner is! Nico's Gargant. Nico has a sumptuous style that won over the whole crowd, but more importantly it won over the Judge; artist Tony Hough.


Nico is on the left with the Mighty Dark-Winged Avenging Lord of Chaos himself and the no less reknowned Golgfag.


Hightail it over to part five immediately!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Cool, I didn't even know there was a contest.

    1. It was a little bit understated, we will do more to promote it next time. Possibly it got overshadowed on the weekend by the excitement of meeting each other and playing some games too. We will definitely be taking this competition forward though.

  2. Wonderful pictures of the entries...thanks for sharing! and while I would love to take great for that amazing Chaos warrior conversion I believe that is actually Fimm McCool's entry...looks like his style anyway. Mine is the wardancer.

    1. Apologies for the mix up, I had to dig around and do a bit of detective work after the fact and must have gotten muddled up. I will put things right in the edit. Thanks for sending the Wardancer which was a very skilled piece of work.

    1. Many thanks Suber. It was certainly a hugely exciting and influential climax for for the Oldhammer scene. Certain luminaries like Zhu and Orlygg have been banging the Oldhammer drum for at least three or four years now and this event was the fruit of all their hard labour. It was very energising and inspirational being there. Can't wait for the next one!
