The Return From Sternac

Hi all,
it has been a fair while since I have posted anything, so for that I apologise, however I now have an new house, with a dedicated gaming room! So look for battle reports in the near future, I know Blackmane is itching to have a brawl with my Iron Lords/Ultramarines/Tau, so hopefully soon we can get together and play. Have got the materials worked out, and the table will be 6'x4' (not including the 12" of non-gaming reserve/ cup of tea space on either end lol). Speaking of gaming myself and Blackmane had a game of Kill Team  at the start of July and with my stuff in storage, I borrowed his Imperial Guard, having never used them in my life, I was quite astounded to actually win the game, having gone the full 6 turns I had all but annihilated Blackmane's Space Wolves, thanks to some lucky rolls and 3 Auto-cannons, fear the Lasgun people, I'm telling ya......

However, right now I have a new mini that I've been working on over the last couple of days, and that is the Chapter Master of my Iron lords, Hoban Lakor. I already had a model to represent him, in the form of a Master of the Forge w/full servo harness. This mini however happened totally by accident, I was converting my Black Reach terminators into what I wanted to be an Honour Guard squad and I had seen an article on another site that had used Dreadnought leg guards as pre-heresy shoulder pads, and it worked really well. He originally was going to be the chapter champion, and I have converted another two to be Honour Guards, however, they will now probably be representing a Iron Lords version of Culln and a chaplain in termy armour. But I had a thought and surmised that the best most sort after armour in the armoury would be bestowed to the Chapter Master, and since pre-heresy armour virtually doesn't exist any more, it makes sense. So without further ado, I give to you my new (original idea) Chapter Master....                                                                    

I think he's a lot better than my original mini, and am mostly happy with how he turned out, but I am going to tinker with him more, add more mechanical artefacts and such and do his banner (not sure hwat to put on it at the moment) just to flesh him out a bit more. If you read this please let me know what you think, thanks

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.

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)
