Iron Lords Chapter Master

Well then, it's been rather a long time coming this, but around work and ordering the bits ive found time to build me a chapter master/master of the forge! :D

                                                         Hoban Lakorr (Click to Enlarge)

Possibly my favourite mini iv'e done so far, to me he oozes character, a powerful yet cautious stance, glowing blue power sword and a servo harness, to me he is my chapter master. Also its one of my better paint jobs, especially on the red armour, the gold and brass need work and small highlighting is a skill I need to perfect yet but im getting their. I will be posting some better quality pics soon, but at the minuet I just enjoy looking at him on my shelf above my laptop. A very simple model to make, a Grey Knight in termy armour and a servo harness from the direct sales Techmarine. altered the servo-harness arms to accommodate the bigger frame.
Now, because he's not your standard master of the forge or chaptermaster, I had to come up with a back story as the why my chapter would have a Grey Knight terminator suit with a servo-harness, and I came up with this:

"The suite was a prototype for the Grey Knights, developed by the Adeptus Mechanicus, as a way for the Grey Knights to be able to repair their vehicles in the heat of battle, allowing maximum armour and the most productivity. However, the Grey Knights thought the suite too cumbersome, and it was respectfully declined. The suit then sat in one of the many great vaults on Mars for millennia, until the newly formed Iron Lords chapter helped fend Hive Fleet Kraken off of  a Forge World in the Grendl Stars. The Mechanicus was so great full for the assistance of the Chapter Master and his force, that they offered him a gift from their vault. And low, he chose the suite. As a successor chapter to the Iron Hands, he instantly saw it's beauty and because of the natural link the Iron Lords have to machines, it's movement flowed in perfection, not cumbersome at all in the right hands...."

Also, I have a diorama to make for my local GW store, Ive gone for a Tyrannic War veteran (minus Ultramarine symblos) Vs a charging Tyranid Hive Guard, will post some pics of that soon too.
Anyway thats all for now. I shall update soon!

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.

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.

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)
