Battle Missions - Have You Ordered Yours?

Hello all.

Today Battle Missions went up for advanced order along with some very nice looking Killa Kans and new shiney plastic Venerable Dreadnought. There is also the new Deff Dread and the updated Basalisk and Chimera kits. The Deff Dread does look quite awesome aswell but I think the Kans would be the better buy (shame I'm not an Ork player, well not yet anyway lol) The Venerable Dreadnought does look good aswell but in order to turn it into a Space Wolf Venerable Dreadnought there could be alot of green stuff work filling in bits here and there. I know Zebulon will be getting it, and I think he may have mentioned something about getting 2 of them. Well one for his Ultarmarines and one for his Iron Lords I guess. Myself on the other hand will wait to see what it looks like when Zebulon gets his. I have however pre-ordered a copy of the Battle Missions book. I think it could really add some diversity to the game as long as the missions aren't all based along the same lines as those in the cole rulebook.

And lastly as a side note, an update on our planned campaign. I'm still in the process of writing the last few missions and typing up what I've already done. We've decided to make the campaign 10 missions long, although there will be a couple of optional missions that can be played depending on the outcome of a couple of missions, so at most it will end up as 12 shoul dboth optional missions be played. I've also told Zebulon that I've had an idea for an intresting set of games. I need to write those as well (It all just keeps building up). There will be 5 of them and they will be linked together, basically forming a mini campaign. It doesn't have a setting yet and in order to turn my idea into reality I may have to adapt some of the rules but I don't know yet. We'll see how it goes.

Well thats all for now. Thanks for reading.

Bulidings crack and tumble. Fields are turned into graves. But all is not lost as more hero's arrive to try and turn the tide.

There's a howl in the distance. It echo's all around. Is it getting closer? Or further away? It can't be good either way.

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!!
