New Day, No Dawn: Dark Eldar Part 1

Hi all.

Today I bring some pictures of the first Dark Eldar model I've painted. I was up till 1 in the morning painting him and then finished him 7 or so hours later after I had got some sleep. My kabal is called the Kabal of the Blazing Sun. I've come up with some background for them and will post some brief bits of background once I've got it all together. I've gone with an orangey/red colour for them and I will endevour to put up a painting post some time soon. So without any more delay my first Dark Eldar model.

The sun symbol on this side of the back banner is the symbolf for the Kabal. I tried to keep it simple so I could replicate it with ease. Unfortunately the highlights on the banner have made it look very shiney when I took the picture so the symbol is obscured a bit.

On the other side of the banner I put a squad symbol. Its not too bad considering I didn't plan it or draw it on paper first.

Now I have the first one done and am happy with the colour scheme I will paint the rest of the squad up in the same way. The only change I may make is how I've painted the skin around the waist as I'm not entirey happy with it.

Wellt hats all for now. As always thankyou for reading and please feel free to leave comments. Have a nice day.



  1. Great looking miniature, I love the crisp highlights. Excellent work on the banner as well, I really like the symbol you've designed. I'm excited to see more of these guys as you get further along with this army.

  2. Thankyou very much. Hopefully I'll have some free time to get more painted this week. I also have 2 raiders and some wyches now so they'll be interesting to paint.

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!!
