What's That Nibbling Noise?...... The Skaven Invasion

Well, the Under Empire has finally arrived at SotA towers... I am really loving the new Queek model very dynamic and fierce, but not truly over the top at the same time. Why Skaven do you ask?
Well Warhammer Fantasy represents the last bastion for me of unexplored GW war-gaming, I have substantial 40K and LotR armies but never really got into Fantasy, I had a brief dip about 5 or 6 years ago when I bought the Lizardmen armybook and a box of Sauraus, but sadly they never took off... The real clincher though was the new Hell Pit Abomination, in my opinion that is the ugliest, most horrific looking thing GW have produced in a long time, it's perfect. Queek stood out to me on the Lords and Hero's page and I knew I must have him as a Lord.

The army will be collected the old fashioned way, a unit at a time. I have a habit, like I'm sure many wargamers, of buying lots of stuff in one go, and them not doing it because it seems like a never ending mountain. When I first started out, I wasnt able to buy lots, so a squad here and there or a new sergeant every couple of weeks, it actually made a difference to how I painted and collected, so I am going back to it.

Queek is currently drying black, and he is my job for tomorrow and the rest of the week. Then, I will purchase the Army Book and see what deliciously dastardly things the Skaven has to throw upon the world....

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.

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.

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)
