Hero of Gondor

Hi all.

Today I finished yet another model, go me! Still 50+ plus to go. Its lucky I enjoy painting.

Anyway on with the post. Today I finished one of my Boromir models. He was the first version of Boromir myself and Zebulon got. I have another two version's to paint which are fairly similar so I will do those at the same time.

This version is a faily straight forward model to paint. The majority of the model is the black cloth he wears on top which I gave a very subtle highlight with a dark grey mix. I did this to keep the cloth looking black as opposed to grey. The red cloth area's I painted with Scab Red and washed with Asurmen Blue before resetting the base colour and then using Terracotta as the highlight. The horn was painted in the same way as I paint all bone. The hair was Scorched Brown washed with Oygrn Flesh and drybrushed with Bestial Brown. The skin was done with Dwarf Flesh, washed with Ogyrn Flesh, basecolour was reset and then given a fine highlight with Elf Flesh. I think I've finally found a way of painting skin that I'm happy with and is fairly simple to repeat. Although in future I might be tempted to add in a 50/50 mix of dwarf flesh and elf flesh just to help make the highlight's a little smoother.
All in all another model I am very happy with and will look great leading my Gondorian army.

Yesterday I said that I was waiting to get my Skyclaws and White Dwarf model undercoated which got done today. This mean's I'll be able to get them my skyclaws painted up ready for the next game myself and Zebulon have. Zebulon already has a dislike for my Bloodclaws on foot. Now he'll have to deal with some more and these have jump packs.

Well thats all for today. Maybe I'll be back tomorrow. I'll see how painting goes. Thanks forreading and as always comments are always 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!!
