First of (hopefully) Many to Come

Hi all Blackmane here.

Firstly I'd like to appologise for the lack of posts. Life's been a bit busy for the last few weeks. Anyway where to begin.

Well firstly as Zebulon said in the previous post we had our first game of planetstrike over christmas (and our first battle for a while). I think I can safely say it was a game enjoyed by both of us. It was the first outing for my Space Wolves under the new codex and I have to say that i'm most impressed. The blood claws are still dangerous in close combat and the grey hunters are still very effective at providing close range fire and are not to far behind the blood claws in close combat. Though I have to say that i'm most impressed with Njal. He managed to use most of his pyshic powers and was able to stop Zebulon from using Tigurius effectively.



As Zebulon mentioned I've been writing a campaign of our very own called The Fall of Corian IV. I think we're both very much looking forward to getting our teeth (or is that fangs and claws in my case?) into it.There are still missions to write for it but all going well it should be about 15 missions long ending with an apocalypse game. Once I've got them finished and typed up I'll post them on here so that you can play the campaign yourselves if you want to or maybe just play a mission you like the sound of. Of course me and Zebulon will do our best to add some battle reports as we go along as well as some pictures. I've also ordered myslef a bastion and skyshield landing pad just for the campaign so they'll be at the top of the list to be done.

For christmas Zebulon bought me Gunnery Sergeant Harker who will have a whole mission based around him. Although I will be renaming him with a more Norse -ish name to fit in with the Tarnhelm 3rd. It should be an interesting mission. I've also still got to paint Stracken so I will probably do both more or less at the same time. Can't have the Tarnhelm without one of its leaders now can we.

And lastly I'm still working on my Space Wolves. At the minute its mainly wolf guard models, both power armour and termie armour forms, as well as some wolf scouts.

And with that and an ever growing unpainted model pile I had better grad my brushes and paints and get to it.

Thanks for reading

Blackmane.

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!!
