Oldhammer Monsters

The past few years, there has been an increasing interest in Oldhammer - playing Warhammer but with the rules of 3rd, 2nd or even 1st edition. Not only the rules though, also the miniatures should preferably be the ranges that were produced in the eighties. Now, this is not really necessary - the true aim of Oldhammer is to play according to the free spirit that Warhammer embraced during that period. There are quite a number of blogs devoted to Oldhammer, but two that I think are worth following are Oldhammer, Eldritch Epistles, and Realm of Chaos 80s. There are more, of course, but listing them all would be too much work.

Anyway, since I started my miniature wargaming career with Warhammer 1st edition, and was really obsessed with Warhammer 3rd, I acquired quite a lot of miniatures during the late eighties and early nineties. For some reason, I never sold any of my fantasy miniatures, so I still have a huge number of old Citadel miniatures from the golden age in my collection.

Below are just a few examples. All were painted by me, more than 20 years ago. I did include links to the relevant catalog pages on the Stuff of Legends website.
