SotA Christmas Showdown: An Overview

Well, the dust has settled on the battlefield and Blackmane and my self had a pretty tough match, with bot armies fighting valiantly, however there could only be one winner, so congrats to Blackmane on his victory. I do have the full battle report and I will post it when I remember everything, but for now here is in outline of what happened.

Battle Missions: Ambush
Attacking force is deployed in the middle of the board, within 6" of the centre line, and more than 12" from the longest edges. The defending player can then postion anywhere he want on the board (if i remember rightly).

Turn 1:
Combat saw my Tau commander dragged away by Blackmanes Hellions, but took out 2 of them.
Archon dropped the webway portal
Broadside shot the Archons shield away.

Turn 2:
Blackmane failed to gain any reserves, after failing his roll.
Tau commander got dragged further away, but took out another 2 Hellions
The death of the Tau bodyguard who was shot by embarked Kabalite Warriors

Turn 3:
The arrival of Hesperex, who promptly changed into CC with my Broadside, which held her off in Blackmanes combat, but perished in mine
The disembarking of both my Fire Warrior squads and the prompt shooting and death of Hesperex.
Tau commander failed in combat and detonated his Fail Safe, taking out the last Wych
The death of 2 Tau Stealth team units

Turn 4:
The arrival of Blackmanes Wyches, who then chewed through one Fire Warrior Squad
The Gunning down of the other Fire Warrior squad, from embarked Kabailites, leaving me with 3 models in the unit.
The death of my stealth team Shas'ui.
The immobilisation of a Devilfish

Turn 5:
 The tanks shock of Blackmanes Wyches, and subsequent vehicle immobilised.

Game ended on turn 5

There is more detail to it than that, and it will be posted ,but I need to consult with Blackmane on the finer details. So for now, Blackmane is the reigning SotA champion. Well Done!.

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!!
