Scenery: Project River: Part 2

Hi all.

Today I bring a picture of my river sections so far.

As can be seen from the picture below I have now formed the banks of the river. This was done by adding scraps of carboard to the area's I had marked out as the banks. Then I used an all purpose power filler to create the banks. The cardboard allowed me to make the banks without having to have solid mounds of filler which would have made it 1. heavier and 2. more suseptible to breaking. The cardboard scraps also gave the filler something to stick to and also made it easier for me to shape the banks.




The nest step will be snad the banks a little bit to remove some of the roughness of the filler. once this is done I may then use sand to coat the river banks before painting them. Once this is done I will paint the water. Not quite sure how I'm going to do that yet as I haven't decided if I'm just gonna use blue's or go for a more realistic effect. It will depend how I feel when I get around to it.

On a side note my excitement about the new edition of Warhammer seems to be growing daily. I really can't wait.

Well thats all for today. Thanks for reading and as always comments are most welcome.

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!!
