Clan Ektrik Stormvermin Fangleader


Well today I set about tackling my Stormvermin, as a tester for the Clan Ektrik theme, I decided to do my Fangleader first, 4 and a bit  hours later I've just finished him, so I doubt I'll be doing any more today, that's the Stormvermin-athon failed then......


However, I know the theme works, though as you will see in the pics the cloth isn't totally white, as I just thought that Skaven wouldn't have bright white clothes, the commute through tunnels after all, so I toned it down a bit to a light/medium grey colour and followed the steps on the Games Workshop site as to how to do the armour (http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/content/article.jsp?categoryId=&pIndex=4&aId=13500002a&multiPageMode=true&start=5). Whilst a fiddly method of painting armour, it worked a treat and I am super pleased with how it came out. The only bad part of this model is the feet, as they seem not to have cast properly, very little detail on the feet, so much so I couldn't tell if they were feet or shoes ....

Overall, am very pleased with how he came out, just need to find a quicker way of doing them, as 6hrs for a standalone model isn't bad, just need to work out a painting routine for the rest. They should be more straightforward as the is less character detail on them, the cloth and the armour are the bulk of the painting, no severed heads, speaking of which I went for a classic slightly green look for them, never have been good at painting dead flesh, but I'll learn eventually. As always c&c's are always 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!!
