Ride now, ride now! Ride for ruin! And the world's ending!

"Arise, arise, Riders of Theoden!
Fell deeds awake, fire and slaughter!
Spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
A sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now! Ride for ruin! And the world's ending! 
Death! Death! Death! Forth Eorlingas!!"

Hi all

Today I bring some pictures of another additon to my Lord of the Rings forces (Its not an elf!). If you didn't get who it was from the quote above then look below and you'll see who it is. Yes its Theoden, King of Rohan. I decided to get him a couple of weeks ago at the same time I ordered my Dwarf Thane. The reason I ordered this Theoden model is that I've never had a version of Theoden mounted on a horse and I love this model so I decided it was about time to get it. So without any further delay here he is in all his glory.

I am really pleased with how he turned out. I feel I got the face just right, managing to give the impression of age but not over doing it. I'm any happy with the way the horse's 'armour' turned out. Highlighting each of those little rectangles after it had been washed was not so easy but I managed to do it without filling any of the recesses. All in all I feel its a great model, up there with my best painted stuff.

Thanks for reading and as always any comments, good or bad, are welcome.

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!!
