My Armies: Post 1 of um....many

Well, in my first post I did say that I would be posting pictures of my Ultramarines and Iron Lords forces, so here's the first one. These three are the models I've completed most recently and they're one of my better attempts at painting, which I know I'm not brilliant at lol. The only difficulty I really had was the faces, mainly due to a lack of paint colours, but anyway I made do with what I've got and they ended up like this (Click on picture to enlarge)

Firstly the Master of the Recruits:


A very interesting model to paint, and I'm sure his face would have come ut better if I had more paints, but it kind of looks like he's got an eye missing ala Cassius, which I'm beginning to like, however I have now realised that I can't paint swords properly and also apologise for the dark pictures in all of these, am still working out how to do good pictures.


Master of the Armoury


This is possibly my favourite model in the Master of the Chapter box, simply because I have a thing about Mk.3 Iron Armour, again the face would have come out better if I had more paints, but overall I liked how he turned out


Now for a change of pace, I recently completed my first Iron Lords dreadnought (basic AOBR dread) with a green stuff banner, added purity seals, candles and loin cloths. Possibly my favourite dread I've painted, looks quite grimy and dark, but I wish I could have given him a more dynamic pose, but for me at this time, its not always possible. Any way without further a due I present Brother Arlon....



 

I've got lots of WIP pics of this dreadnought thatt I'm going to post in blog very soon about what look I'm going for with the Iron Lords and why. The dreadnought is the most converted thing I've completed and an example of the first steps towards a complete Iron Lords force.

Hope this blog was interesting and as always please feel free to post comments. HAVE A NICE DAY!

Start Collecting Skitarii Review

Hey all, today I'm giving my little review on the new Start Collecting Skitarii box. Firstly for a GW price of  £50 ($85) these are exceptional value, in this box set the Dunewalker is £40, Rangers/Vanguard £23.50 and the Dominus £22. Even at £50, that's a £35.50 saving. If you're like me and bought it from an online store ( Goblin Gaming for me, 20% discount and £3.90 postage, just under 50% off standalone retail price)


Scenery: Imperial Sector Buildings WIP

Hi all

Its been a while since anything new was posted on SotA which I think has been due to both myself and Zebulon having a little break from doing anything major. I've been tinkering with a few bits and pieces for the last few weeks and now find myself ready to get back into the swing of things.

So first up are the buildings from the Imperial Sector box. I was lucky enough to find this box in my local store at the old price of about £52 rather than the new £70 price. I hadn't intended to buy it but I knew I'd regret not buying it. It took me a couple of weeks to assemble the buildings which was slow by my standards (due to the decreased nature of hobby activities).

So lets get on with the pictures.


Slaughterpriest Painting Challenge

Hey all, we're back today with another of myself and Blackmane's painting challenges. Since we both picked up the shiney new version of White Dwarf, we though it fitting to do a challenge based of the Slaughterpriest that came with it. 
We have 2 weeks from today to complete the model in anyway we see fit and then we will put it up as a poll to see who the victor is! 
On a slightly related note, myself and Blackmane have both moved house in the last couple of months each gaining a hobby room/studio. This explains our lack of posts recently and should allow us both increased content for our little blog which we hope you will enjoy going forward.
Paint brushes at the ready..... GO!!
