Consider yourself Vanquished!

Hi all Blackmane here.

Today I recieved my new Leman Russ tank in the post. And as soon as I had finished working some more on the river sections (See Scenery: Project River), I set to work assembling my new tank.



Again the new track design really speeded up the assembly process, just as it did on the hellhound kit I got a few months back. I think this was a good improvement to the way the Imperial Guard tanks are assembled and I hope that it will be rolled out to the Space Marine tanks as well.

The only thing I don't like about the new tanks is the integrated cupola on the turret. On the old model I could make multiple top hatches and change them as needed so that I didn't have to have the pintle weapon I'd mounted and could instead just have it shut or a different pintle weapon prehaps. It also means that my version of Knight Commander Pask is now completely useless as he is in one of the interchangable cupola's and therefoe can't fit in the new turret. So I'm going to  have to make a new one which is a slight pain. But its a small price to pay if it means my Vanquisher will be that little bit more effective.

All I can say is that I look forward to blowing up Zebulon's many dreadnoughts with my new tank and that pictures will follow in the next few days.

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.


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.
