Ozzy has a day out at the Warhammer weekend: Boyl 15 Orthocone style.

 Please indulge me as I take some time for a little Dad-hammer. After I told my son about the sea monsters that would be in the Oldhammer ahoy game my son was determined to make a model for me to take. Believe it or not the Orthocone in the following pictures was Scratch built by Arthur my 6 year old son. You will not find it in any shops and he currently has no plans to make a mould and cast it up. So no you cannot get your hands on one its is unique to my collection.

Many players in the ahoy game found themselves attacked by Ozzy over a series of games. All agreed he was a fearsome opponent. So I thought I should summaries Ozzy's experience. Arthur and Wilfy my youngest  were  very keen to help me write it up and below you find our combined efforts.

 Yum, yum, yum, yum. Ozzy has some breakfast. Fimms fearsome Fimir stand no chance in their low long ship. Check out the Fimir that has been grasped by the Orthocones deadly tentacles.

 Ozzy plays with a new friend. But he kills him, opps! Ozzy play nice now.

 Ozzy has his lunch.Old bones are not that tasty but Ozzy eats them any way. This was Harry's undead ship getting the full effect of an Ozzy attack.

Ozzy escapes being eaten by the giant head and instead has some goblins for tea. Even Thantsants ship was no match for Ozzy.

 Oh Ozzy there is no food here this is Golgfag's wreck. You can't eat the terrain. Oh eat it anyway.

A late supper. Some Orcs, they are better than skeletons but still a bit stinky. They better run.

Oldhammer weekend 2016?

Just saying...

Anyone up for it?

Oldhammer weekend! BOYL 15 Erny style.

Nobody can capture the full, glorious,  geeky,  majasty of BOYL in a single blog post, though some get close. Still ever one to reassess a situation and come up with something that can work I'd like to present to you in pictures Erny's trip to East Stoke and how it all panned out for me.

Just got in at about 3.30 on Friday straight into my first game of Oldhammer Ahoy.

I got yo play with Harry's Junk. Yeah I said it.

Oh look Orks.

Cool Orks.

Oh look Orcs.

Erny you are playing a game get back to it.
Break for piss up and sleep. No pictures were taken. What happens at Oldhammer Piss up stays at Oldhammer Piss up. (Mainly drinking very good beer, playing kids games and eating silly amounts of Kebab. Shhh. Don't tell them I told you)

Second game of oldhammer ahoy. Someone said the shark ogre was an illusion but it still killed some wardancers.

I just like this shot.

Yeah thats me and the Goblin Master after he did my face on a previously unreleased 40k cloaked.....dude.. The minimum he was asking for was a £5 donation. That's £5 for a Kev Adams original. I'm certain most gave much more and were very happy to do so. Look at that smile.

Opps I forgot I'm playing a game, hang on.

Cool slan, cool game, cool chaos. Whats going on?

Very pretty.

ERNY back to the game please. Oh,"You have sunk my battle ship." Nobody but my brother got the quote. I'm terrible with names but the Ghost ship was great and I clearly remember playing against the same chaps undead in the siege game. He has a great undead army and navy now. Anyway he did for me..

Just in time for setting up Forenrororenronds last stand. A favourite of mine, its reasonably safe to assume I've played it more than anyone elsew on earth, but I've never played it quite like this. Fimm made the counters and I drew the map. I think it looks splendid.

Then I get a call that someoen needs my orks. They were even polite enough not to laugh at the ten year old paint jobs.

They look cool in WPs Vulture warrior terrain though.

Opps wasn't I doing something else.

I won't give away the ending but here we have the players (well my brother played too) They may have been three Brothers or two brothers and  a friend. Sibling rivalry was only just visible simmering beneath the surface. And that was just me and Snicket. Oh and Fimm gave me the tokens so let me know if you'd like to play some time and  you know if time and geography permit..

Hey someone has set my ship up looking all cool in Marienburg. Check out Liber Malific for the work of some sea and Mordhiem obsessed fellow travellers.

Yep, that looks cool.
Pause for slightly smaller piss up and sleep.

Hey there's my bit of the Death race track all set up. Wait a minute I didn't set it up, I hadn't even met Captain Crooks how did that happen?

Man that track all works so well.

Start the game.

Start cheating. (I'll explain in another post.)

Hey the Volksvagn.

ERNY! get back to the game.

Hah JB's in the Lava.

And what is my Brother up to now. 4th ed at Oldhammer! Cool.

ERNY! Get back to the game. Hey I crashed.

I thought the big goofy Giant head was on the Ahoy Table. Huyuck, Huyuck.

Dakka, Dakka.

Hey no fair.

Also not shown here is buying toys and trading, chatting. Hangin', chillin', Little bit a illin'. You know, being cool.
