The Skaven Invasion: Painting Queek Headtaker Part 4

Hey all,
well today I bring you the final part of my guide to painting Queek Headtaker, which really was just his trophy rack and touching up the base.

Firstly the Wooden Poles,

a) Scorched Brown
b) Devlyn Mud wash
c) 1:1 dry brush mix of Scorched Brown and Tau Sept Ochre (Bestial Brown would probably work just as well).
d) Light Bleached Bone dry brush as a final step to help bring it out a bit.

a) Boltgun Metal
b) Badab Black wash
c) Boltgun Metal light dry brush
d) Chainmail used to pick out the edges and spikes

Cloth ties
a) Bleached Bone
b) Devlyn Mud wash
c) Bleached Bone as a highlight
d) 1:1 Bleached Bone and Skull White

Skaven Skeleton
a) Bestial Brown
b) Bleached Bone
c) Badab Black wash
d) Dry brush 1:1 Bleached Bone: Skull White
e) Light dry brush Skull White

Human/Ork Skull
a) Bestial Brown
b) Bleached Bone
c) Devlyn Mud wash
d) Bleached Bone to pick out the features

Dwarf head
a) Shadow Grey
b) Lichee Purple wash
c) Scorched Brown for the beard
d) Bestial Brown beard highlight

a) 1:1 Elf Flesh: Space Wolves Grey
b) Shadow Grey wash
c) Lichee Purple Wash
d) Ring was Shining Gold

The base was also given a touch up in the form of a dry brush of Space Wolves Grey, to pick out the stones.

Well that's my full Queek guide, and having finally got his trophy rack on, he looks really good (to me anyway), possibly the best model I've painted so far, and definately my favourite! Well if anyone has any comments of tips, please feel free to post a comment.

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!!
