Pictures: Space Wolves, Ulrik and a Special One

Hi all.
Today I'm posting some pictures I took the other day and had meant to post then but it kinda slipped my mind. Anyway here they are now. I took these the characters down to my local GW as the manager was interested in having a look. He thought they were very good and really liked them both. So have a scroll down and take a look for yourselves.




First up we have Ulrik the Slayer. I'm very impressed with my repainted version. He looks so much better than he originally did. See here for the old Ulrik http://signoftheaquila.blogspot.com/2010/01/at-long-last.html (He's about halfway down). Its clear there is a huge improvement in quality and I would now be more than happy fielding him without thinking 'he's looking a bit old'. I currntly have no superglue so I haven't been able to stick the backpack on.



 Next up we have my latest squad to get updated. Its my second squad of Blood Claws. The squad like all the rest used to have both a powerfist and power weapon. However since the rules changed I removed the power weapon from this squad and instead gave them a flamer I found at the bottom of tool box type thing. It was genrously given to me by Zebulon somke time ago and I can't remember what I had wanted it for originally. Anyway the Blood Claws have it now and seen as its automatic hits I don't have to worry about their BS 3. Some of the pictures are a little blurry which I apologise for.






And finally a model I have been working on for a while. The White Dwarf! He's been sat on my paint station for the last few weeks but I just wasn't in the right mood to paint this fantastic model. However while I was painting Ulrik I got stuck in and this is the result. I have to say I'm extremely happy with how he's turned out. Especially the beard.



Well thats all for now. Thanks for having a look and please feel free to leave any comments.

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!!
