Ramshackle Oldhammer exclusives !
OK, so after painting Olivia a few days ago, I thought I'd finish all the models that I've got from previous BOYL events. Just as a reminder, BOYL (Bring Out Your Lead) is the Oldhammer event in Newark every summer to celebrate the joy of oldschool gaming.
One of the traditions now is to get a free model (sometimes 2) designed and produced specifically for the occasion because let's face it, nothing pleases us as getting new models !
Now the most appropriate thing to do with models offered this way is actually quite simple : paint them !
Now since those are sculpted by Curtis, I thought I'd try to change my painting to suit his own style. Of course, I couldn't do exactly like he would (I did undercoat my model for starters) but I hope the style fits with his very personal palette and style.
The old hammer bearer was the model offered for BOYL16 (Curtis kindly sent me some to give away during our french oldhammer events) and the pompous official was "Mayor Snakehand" of Helsreach during last BOYL.
I'm really glad to be able to display both of our freebies fully painted as a token of gratitude towards all those who spend time/money and energy to please others.
I do have one BOYL freebie to finish to complete the set and something quite special as well; you should read about it pretty soon !
