Waaagh the (Oldhammer) Orcs!

As a relative newcomer to Oldhammer (is that a contradiction in terms?) I've been spending some time looking around the at the various sites that are out there and generally engaging in insane levels of virtual shopping.

The Stuff of Legends website is the go to place for information on what's out there. Here's the Marauder Miniatures page that's occupying much of my google-time. If things go to plan I'm aiming to get my hands on pretty much everything that appears in these catalogue pages but as I'm hoping to get some third-edition gaming in I'm going to try to start by aiming to get a playable list sorted. That means starting with a smattering of heroes, 20 Boyz, 20 Arrer Boyz, 20 Gobbos, 20 Stickas, and a Skull Crusher. I'm at the mercy of ebay I suppose!

Oldhammer Orcs!

Oh dear! Just as I thought I'd broken the spell of Games Workshop's toy-magic (under which I've been held in thrall for over 25 years) it seems that I've suffered a major relapse. And that relapse is called Oldhammer! Capturing everything I enjoy about the hobby (collecting, nostalgia, painting, and perhaps even playing for fun with a ruleset I'll enjoy) the world of Oldhammer caught me off-guard and has reeled me right back in to the GW hobby... Curses!

Having stumbled across various blogs and the Oldhammer Forum I quickly gave way and it didn't take me long to settle on the idea of collecting a Marauder Orc army. This image is to blame:
