The Tau Elite

Well hello friends and casual browsers, as per usual it's been a long time since I've updated the blog with anything of mine, but I now present to you the commanders of my up and coming Tau army.

First up is my Ethereal Aun' T'Salar, with his Honour blade.

He was a challenging character to paint, mainly because I have amazing difficulty painting creamy robes, and this was no exception, I actually gave up at one point as I was so unhappy with how he was turning out as I was comparing myself to Blackmane's level of painting, which for me is not a good idea as I'm still evolving my painting ability. However, I returned to him last night with fresh eyes and now he doesn't seem half bad to me :)

Secondly, we have my current commander, who when I purchase Shas'o R'ymr will  become the 'leader' of his bodyguard, equipped with a Burst Cannon, Fusion Blaster and Multi-Tracker, he's quite deadly at medium range.

That's the head of the army, at the minuet I'm working on the Devilfish I have, which is proving to be a bit trickier than I thought, but I shall prevail, FOR THE GREATER GOOD.

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!!
