Space Wolf Battlefore


Hey all

Today i got my Spac Wolf Batlleforce. I ordered it on the day it came out and have been waiting for it to arrive and today I got my paws on it.

For those who maybe aren't aware the battleforce contaisn the following:

 20 Space Wolves (Assembled as either Blood Claws/Grey Hunters/Wolf Guard)
5 Scouts
1 Drop Pod



So using the bits from this box i'll make my other 4 squads legal again without having to reduce the nuber of models in the squads.Thsi is because all the sqauds currently have a power fist and power weapon which they were allowed in the old codex and can now only have one in the new codex. And seen as I hae no appropriate spare parts to change them i'll need to use bits from the battleforce box.

I plan on assembling 10 of my new models as Wolf Guard. As for the other 10 i'm debating whether to assemble them as another squad of Grey Hunters or assemble them as a third squad of Blood Claws. I'll probably end up assembling them as Blood Claws but we'll see.

The scout will be given the heavy bolter I think although i may give them a plasma gun. Haven't quite made my mind up about that yet.

And then the drop pod will be used for either a squad of Blood Claws to come in behind the enemy (hopefully) or for the Wolf Guard to ride in and hopefully they won't just drop to their death's.

So thats what I plan on doing with the contents of the Ballteforce. The next thing/s on my hitlist are:

Land Raider  Crusader/Redeemer -  I need something for my Characters attched to sqauds to ride in.
Razorback - A support/transport vehicle for my Long Fangs
Skyclaws - fast moving counter-attack unit or for spearheading an assult with the Blood Claws.
Colonel 'Iron Hand' Stracken
The White Dwarf in Space

So thats all for now. Pictures at some point :)

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!!
