The Joy Of Ebay

Well, this last couple of weeks has been a good one for me, am settling into the swing of painting Queek, have some cool ideas for my Ultramarines and I've had a run of good luck on Ebay.

For my Skaven I'm going with the stuff I think looks cool and then I'll think of an army list later, first up is the IoB Skaven Engineer for £2.45 incl free postage, so cheap I couldn't say no. Then I spotted the IoB Warpfire Thrower for £3.45 incl free postage, again I couldn't say no, it was the little burning rat that sold me on this one, encapsulating the Skaven type mentality of thing back firing on you half the time!

Next up we have what is apparently a limited edition Apothecary from Games Day '98 ( for £5.70 incl postage, with the release of the Forge World Rules for a Master Apothecary this seemed like the ideal mini to go with it! Master Apothacary Priscus will hit the field sometime soon...

And lastly but probably most importantly we have my super secret project.... which I have blanked out for reasons of secrecy, but it should be good! paid £14.50 incl postage, just needs to be stripped of and started again...which is where he's going now....

Ok, ok a big black square isnt much of a picture, but it is behind there, if I do it well the tension could be unbearable....

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!!
