@Iluvatar can you look in this please?
Wow guys! I am stunned!
How nice to see so many nice, postive responses! It is MUCH appreciated!
If you guys want, I can add a list with manufacturers later. We're also writing an article atm (with pics!) for the E-magazine with more info!
For those interested, we also have a Facebook group with daily/weekly updates. I have to say. We started with two guys and we have about 40 members allready! Including some top-notch sculptors and people starting to make their own 10mm ranges!
Please have a look and feel free to join! (We're happy to help).
Now, here's a couple of pictures I took during the local (first official) MINIHAMMER tournament:
My KoE versus Albin's beautifull Wood Elves (on a 24 x 36 inch board!):
I never thought mooses where that scary! (I should've known better now I live in Sweden). His elite cavalry managed to charge me and that proved disastrous for my knights. Big lessons learned. 11-9 to Albin!
Another battle against Daniel's (Northlund) amazingly scary Lizardman (Saurian Ancients). In this battle, two units of knights charged his centre unit and managed to break his battle line which turned this battle in a 17-3 victory for the Lady. And my first vicotry over his Saurian Ancients after 2 losses. We also have a new nickname for him. "Snake Eyes". As he manages do roll double 1's when he needs it most about 5 freaking times now! They truly are cold blooded....
And finally, we decided to do a massive 2 vs 3 battle. The Wood Elves and Lizards teamed up to defend the forest and sanctuary from the encroaching human settlement, aided by the stubborn Dwarves of Kenneth for furnace fuels and scary undead from far away lands for sinister reasons from Anton (Lord Mosstrol). The Game had to be ended unfortunatly cause the clock ticked 03;00 in the morning and we felt toast.
Now ofcourse there's some more, but those will have to wait!
We hope you enjoy and we hope to welcome you to our FB page aswell!

So if you're OK with it I'm going to slap some mini news of my own in here. Haven't had much time what with finishing a degree at university and playing at the ETC warm-ups in Denmark but here are my first 2 units in MINIHAMMER scale!
@Iluvatar can you look in this please?
I have created a 10mm category in the miniatures Wiki: the-ninth-age.com/lexicon/inde…27-10mm-scale-miniatures/
@Lord Gnarkill - feel free to fill it as you prefer to list the miniatures/websites in 10mm scale!
I'll get to it ASAP!
I'm also happy to anounce we have written a article for the new edition of the Ninth Scroll to catch some more eyes!
Great work. I'm really happy to see the support from people around here and it makes me even more happy that more and more people keep flocking in and are even starting for themselves now!
(Our FB group has also grown from 4 to 50 members!) Thanks guys! Much appreciated!
I've recently started a new army for Minihammer, after finishing my Sylvan Elves.
This time it's the calling of Chaos and the frozen northern wastes that's drawn the attention of my third eye!
Time for dark gods, barbarians and horrible mutations!
Daemon Prince of Change, Sorcerer of Change on "disc" and Barbarian (for scale).
Barbarians with hws!

I just found this due to the article in the 9th Scroll.
This looks awesome. I think I'm going to do some shopping around and figure out what army to make. If I make 2 armies, I can have them as a showcase set
@ Lawgnome: thank you! That sounds like a great idea! Make sure to share your progress with us in this thread and/or visit/join our Facebook group! We're happy to help if you have any questions!
Just wanted to say that I love the idea. A friend came with a link to this topic yesterday. we had a look into it and you can but an entire (starter)army for about €40. thats a great price for trying out a new army that wont take up loads of space, so I will be giving this a go. (and some of the miniatures are just epic)

The Minihammer Experience
Having played Miniature Games for over 13 years now, I know of the main three issues for people of the hobby - the cost, the time and the inconvenience of transportation. In a way you could justify the cost of the models with the amount of time spent on building, painting and playing with them. The transport issue on the other hand is more difficult to deal with, especially on a practical level. I quite clearly remember how much time and energy it took for me to pack all of my models into boxes just to go to our summer house for the weekend when I was new to the hobby. Not to mention all the things I was supposed to do with that time and energy and sometimes did not do (like packing clothes and put on shoes).
As my economy grew over the years I bought a Miniature Case which made it possible to go to tournaments. Later I invested in magnets which turned out to be my best investment ever related to to the hobby, both to improve the gaming experience and the transportation. By that time I had also gotten myself a job at the local game store which sells these kind of games which made it possible for me to get new miniatures more cheaply and the opportunity to keep my miniatures at the place where people played the game.
When I was introduced to the idea of Minihammer from Danny I most certainly understood the benefit for people who travel a lot, don't play at home or don't want or can invest a lesser fortune in miniatures. Unfortinately, I wasn't one of those people. For the last like 5 years, the three main issues of the hobby had not been big issues for me for reasons already stated. On top of that I just wanted to start playing again and I already had 6 painted armies, ranging from 2250pts to 6000pts and didn't feel inspired to start a new one, especially since the conversion options on this scale is so limited. That however changed after I played my first few games of Minihammer.
To my surprise the gaming experience was actually improved on this scale compared to the normal 28mm one I was used to play with. To have a place right in front of you to have your arms, mugs, papers, dice, food, pens and casualties and have little to no need to run around the table in order to move around your miniatures made a lot to improve the gaming experience.
That gaming night was three months ago now and today I have finished a 3000pts army of Undying Dynasties and I will soon have a living chariot-oriented desert people army played with the Highborn Elves army rules. In addition to that I have also made a transportable desert gaming board (including an oasis).
It is good to have that inspiration back again which I haven't had since Age of Sigmar hit the shelves and killed my favorite miniature game.

Aight. I should've put that list up here aswell.
So I did! It can now be found in the opening post. Hope it helps!
Today, the King has arrived!
He brought a damsel, a nobleman on foot, a castellan and priest alongside, aswell as my foot contingency! 50 Peasant Levies and 30 Noblemen on foot with great weapons!
And on top of that, we also gotten our custom made "Minch" range rulers, making playing Minihammer even more easy!
Hi all here visiting us. It's been a while since i last updated anything on this blog and thought that today i will show all units i have in my army so far. Both painted and unpainted.
These are my next projects either work on a Bastiladon (Thyroscutus) or the general on his Alpha Carnosaur =)
A summary of all units i got in my Saurian Ancient army (got a few more models on the side).
My Raptor Riders in their nice little formation
An improvised temple guard unit
The unit of Caimans led by their Ancient Caiman
My Salamander (to the left) and Razordon (to the right). The rules were a bit hard to learn for flaming artillery, but now the information is set
Of course i must put in the most annoying and cost effective unit for the Saurian Ancients. Chameleons to the left and Skink Hunters to the right
Something i haven't used that much yet is the magicians. Especially the Slann (Cuatl Lord).
A close up on the Pteradon Riders. Really nice models, but the way to transport them in a safe way still needs to be made
The unit i use the most during all games. The Saurian Warriors with spears
A little comparison between the different mounts and monsters =)
Thats all i have for today, I will be back when next unit is done or some basing has been made =)
