The Skaven Invasion: Painting Queek Headtaker Part1

Well here is the first pic of my WIP Queek Headtaker, I'm really loving painting this model so far, lots of detail, and it looks good even though its only slightly done. Need to go back and neaten the black areas ready for the chainmail to be done. After the black undercoat I did his armour like so:

a) Mechrite Red coat
b) Heavy Devlyn Mud wash
c) 3:1 Mechrite Red : Blood Red, leaving shading in the recesses
d) 1:1 Mechrite : Bood Red, working up from the previous layer
e)  Blood Red for the 'normal' colour
f) 3:1 Blood Red : Bad Moon Yellow for the highlight
g) 2:1 Blood Red : Bad Moon Yellow for final highlight

Queek looks a lot less orange in real life, and a bit darker too, also I realise that you can't get Bad Moon Yellow any more, so using Blazing Orange would work just as well. If anyone has any tips for a better recipe of red please feel free to drop me a comment. I will also post the complete step by step as I do it into the Step by Step page, as when it has disappeared into the warp that is the older posts, it will still be easily findable on that page. Also on a related note, Blackmane is doing a complete  Dark Eldar Raider Step by Step which he will have hopefully posted by the end of today for everybody.

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!!
