So a great many of us have time commitments that far outweigh this trivial business we call fun. I cannot see it as a mere coincidence that most of us Oldhammerers are within the same generation and have young children, some time ago I coined the phrase Dadhammer and this is perhaps the first true Dadhammer post. Dadhammer is all about, “cheating”, to get the most bang for your precious time. In the future I’d like to start posting up tips of how to do that or links to other sites such as Blues one.. Blue has specifically gone for dipping because of the time constraints of a busy Father. Dadhammer is also about sharing your hobby with the little ones and Rabhere is leading the way with his Goblin quest, it may not be warhammer but it’s close enough to consider it Dadhammer. Or how about Springinsfeld over at Broadswords andthe Beasts proudly having a Dadhammer moment. In short if it makes the most of your limited time or brings the kids into the fold its Dadhammer.
Now to bring the predicament of a Dadhammerer into focus here is a list of things to do in no particular order:
Get some more roll20 games in with Oldhammerers.
Get some real world games in with my brother and friends.
More dungeon cards, I have quite a stack written and just need to get them edited and pasted into the cards.
More games of Hammers and Helms with my eldest. Lots of fun and I promised to explain the dice.
Post regularly to Sofonto’s pbp forum game of Labyrinth Lord. My hafling Esro is proving to be lots of fun as we delve into Stonehell.
Finnish those third ed Orc crossbows. Base colours done and layers are being added as we speak.
Post up the last Realms of Chaos Warband battle as a comic style report.
Work on warband to finish painting it.
Update the painting on my existing O&G army, needs to look good for August.
Paint some otherworld goodies, monsters and adventures.
Post up a 4th ed battle report.
Post up more 4th ed articles.
Oldhammer fanzine, some good people on board now so should be able to get a good zine out incorporating Oldhammer stuff, RT stuff and perhaps some 90’s love too.
Forenronds last stand terrain to paint.
Show my elf cavalry some painty love to update for August.
Look forward to receiving some Dwarven forge stuff this October (this is Dadhammer at its laziest, throw cash at it!).
Update the list of Oldhammer blogs on the Oldhammer blog.
Write some dadhammer articles!
That’s all to get done in whatever free time is left after the more obvious dad duties. Mutual support and encouragement that’s the way forward.
