This past weekend we held the third Oldhammer Day here in the USA. About twenty of us Oldhammerers descended upon Ashburn, Virginia at Huzzah Hobbies for two days of gaming. It was a hell of a time. And they weren't all local. We had attendees from Arizona, Maine, and Ohio. A big thanks to Huzzah for allowing us to use their space!
Unfortunately, I took no pictures because the camera on my phone is, to put it politely, not good. However, many have been posted on the Oldhammer in the New World Facebook page and many more will be posted shortly on Sean's Wargames Corner, Give'em Lead, and Blue's Marauding Miniatures. Probably other places too.
UPDATE: ZeroTwentyThree has posted his coverage here
I wanted to give a big shout out to everyone who came, and especially everyone who ran games: Brian, Lissanne, Dustin, Ben, and especially James--who ran three different events! We also couldn't have done it without Sean and Richard who helped with a ton of the administrative tasks. And I can't forget Fimm McCool at Oakbound Games and Ramshackle Curtis at Ramshackle Games for providing us with limited edition event minis!
I had a blast playing in James' huge Space Hulk game. We had 5 squads of terminators and we almost pulled off the victory! James runs an amazing game. I also busted out the Gunners in a game of Bloodbowl against Lissanne's Chaos Dwarfs. No points were scored in an absolute slug fest between a pair of arch-rivals. Finally, I took a squad of marines into Nu Ork for Dustin's scenario. It was all great fun.
Oh, and I placed second in the Large Model category of the painting contest, and first in the Single Figure category! I'll show off the winning entry in my next post, but my second place entry was a Marauder Giant Ogre I previously showed off in my old Warseer log:
