Weekly Blackmane Post - 1

Ok so I have deicided to try and do a weekly update on all the things i'm working on as well as other updates about more specific things.

Firstly a quick update on the Space Wolves. I finished painting my Njal model and i think its possibly one of the best if not the best model i've painted. Zebulon would possibly agree. I've also been busy painting Lukas a little bit at a time. I have also been doing the odd little bit here and there on the rest of the army although I'm not planning on doing much until i get my battleforce so i can add some new things and make al my squads legal again without having to remove a memeber of the squad.



Secondly I have been working on some scenery pieces. The first of these is an embankment that has a trench type thing in it. It will be especially useful for my guardsmen. They need all the cover saves they can get. I've also been workin on my own landing pad. When assembled it will be big enough for two valkyrie's to land on. I may have made it bigger than i ahd originally intended. So I think it will onlybe used when a really big focal point is needed. Another pice of scenery i've been working on are two towers that will be able to have various things added to the top of them to make them somewhat modular.

Other thinsg I've been working on include finishing off my friends Tyranid scenery, starting on the crashed aquillia lander given to me by said friend and painting some Lord of the rings models.

So thats it for this the first weekly update from me. With a bit of luck I should be able to start getting some pictures up now I know how to take some better pictures using the camera I have.

Thanks for reading

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!!
