Captain Titus: 'Macragge's Fury'

Well today I thought I'd take a break from painting Skaven, as they say a change is a good as a rest. Anyway I'd had him sat around for a long time in my bits box, and today I thought I'd finish him, he'll either count as a IC or a Sergeant for my Termy assault squad. He's made from a mish-mash of bits, the legs are from the Dark Angels chapter upgrade kit so to is the banner, the Ultra symbol is from the command squad kit, the torso is from the aobr set, the arms are spares from the assault termy kit and the shoulder pads are from Forge World.

This is also the first time I've tried to do battle damage, Colonel Schofer posted a link to a video on YouTube of a guy doing a vindicator, a very simple method of damage, simply dab on the highlight colour and paint the inside a dark grey/black to represent the ceramite underneath. 

The technique I'm sure will work well on lighter models, but because I tend to use a darker blue (a style I adapted from Blackmane) the shading in the damage looks very close to the blue base coat, so maybe next time I'll try a lighter greyish sort of colour, I used a dark grey, but it didn't stand out enough, so I went over it with black, which kinda worked a bit, but I may go over it with said lighter grey, and also need to think of a design for his banner. Not the neatest model I've done, not bad and a definite improvement on my earlier works. As always c&c's are always welcome....and so back to the Under-Empire.....

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!!
