All Hail the King!

HI all

Today I bring some more pictures of another recently finished model. If you've looked at the 3 lotr picture posts recently you'll know I did 3 elves in a row. I broke that chain yesterday with a newly painted Theoden on horse. Today however I return to elves.

Today's elf is Thranduil, King of Mirkwood. For those who don't know he is also Legolas's father. I got this model along with the other members of the White Council box. I do like the model and had thought about getting him a few times sicne he came out. So when I managed to get my hands on the White Council box he was one of the ones I was looking forward to painting.

I'm very happy with how he's turned out. Again it's pale colours which I don't like painting but practise makes prefect and I think he's turned  really well. I think I'm most impressed with the green overcoat. The cloak also came out well however I didn't take it to as light a colour as I did with Glorfindel.

Well thats all for now. Thanks for reading and as always comments, good or bad, are welcome.

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)
