Skaven Army Project Log: Stormvermin Assemble!


Hey all,
today I bring pictures of my assembled Stormvermin. This is actually a very straightforward kit to assemble as there are only two main body stances to assemble, however, getting them to fit in a unit proved rather difficult, not only are there the halberds to contend with but also tails, bits of cloth, elbows etc etc, but having said that they do make for a rather individual unit and I wouldn't have them any other way...


First up is the first rank, including a Fangleader, Musician and Standard bearer, this was the most problematic row as they need to be able to contain Queek when needs be, which means they need to fit with the rest of the unit in two different arrangements, however I've found that just removing the 'vermin on the far left works just as well, opposed to fitting Queek in the middle, as I had him in the earlier pictures ( http://signoftheaquila.blogspot.com/2011/02/skaven-project-log-stormvermin-front.html).

The rest of the unit comprised of ranks 2,3 and 4 respectively, all armed with halberds and hand weapons. These ranks were successively easier to build as I had a template of sorts to work from, when it came to fitting them together, which is I'm sure the same for any other Warhammer troop unit. The only problem I can see with this unit is that fact that for my first game of 1000pts, I've sunk 1/4 of the points into this unit alone, add in Queek and I'm looking at 500+pts on 2 units. Hmm....thats why I've gone for the opposite in my next unit.

I have ordered some Clanrats from totalwargamer.co.uk, this will help bulk out my force with some dirt cheap expendable units, whilst Queek and his guard can cut a swathe through the enemy...

Well thats all for today, as per always, criticisms and comments are always welcome :D

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.


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.
