Over the next two posts, I have some Oldhammer White Boxes, also known as "Speciality Sets".
First up we have KISS.
The Knights in Sauron's Service!
Actually its the Box Set coded as SS1-2 Warriors of Chaos.
These Chaos Knights are the elite warriors of Mordor's strike forces.
Beneath their helmets they have black and white face paint.
I wonder which one of them has the unfortunate cat face makeup.
Take the reins of power and seize them, draw the battle lines
Armageddon's just a matter of time
Tear down the voice of reason, let the arrows fly
Your freedom's just a state of mind, yeah
Better watch out 'cause I'm a war machine
You better watch out 'cause I'm a war machine
Look at this artwork...
Look at the figure below...
The first and greatest mystery of Warhammer history follows...
The boxed set for the rules of 1st edition Warhammer Fantasy has this miniature as its cover.
Its the same artwork as these White Box miniatures sets.
The artwork features this fellow with a... Warhammer!
This figure has a name... Uthmog Elvenblade.
Yet strangely he doesnt carry a blade, he carries a hammer.
There is an untold story here, of how his magical Elven blade was shattered and he replaced it with a trusty Dwarven Warhammer instead.
Moral of the story?
Elf made weapons stink.
At least thats how the Dwarven version of the story goes...
OK, I made that up that last paragraph.
There was little to no fluff in the early Oldhammer era.
Someone needs to ask Rick Priestly about this.
Its probably the most important thing about Warhammer and now I need to know the origin story of Uthmog Elvenblade/Harry The Hammer!
In later editions, he will become known as Harry the Hammer.
But I will always call him Uthmog!
His name is Uthmog Elvenblade...
I understand. In death, a member of Project Mayhem has a name. His name is Robert Paulson...
This guy is obviously a worshipper of Khorne the Blood God.
Before he became chosen by the Chaos Gods, he was a famous gladiator.
Id say the runework on his shield came out pretty good, if I say so myself.
Im guessing this guy is a worshipper of Tzeentch because of his bird helmet, so I gave him the colors of the Lord of Change.
Again, I dont know what came over me as I made up the runework on this shield.
Ha! I gave the name of Drakkar to the Zombie Dragon in the last post.
And now we have another Drakar.
He is so oldschool, he doesnt even have a name.
They are the personal bodyguard of a high official sent by Mordor.
Who is it?
We will find out soon enough...
