Knowing When You're Beaten

A lot has happened since I last posted, Tomb Kings got their release, another GW price hike and the forced excommunication of the southern hemisphere for independent traders, more Dark Eldar reinforcements announced and lastly but not leastly Finecast got its debut... and all the while I sat and watched. I will be the first to admit, id lost my mojo. Sitting down and painting wasnt something I wasnt enamoured to do over the last month or so. I kept up to date with the hobby, discussed it at great length with Blackmane but the paint did not flow until today, I needed a breather as I loathe doing thing half way, I need to be committed or I wont do it at all!

Today, I tried to paint my ltd edition apothecary I got from ebay, to not much success. As im sure you can tell from the pic above a) i still havent got my laptop fixed and b) i cant paint white. The model isnt finished and wont be until its stripped down again and done right, i do love painting, but when i do it, i need to do it properly, like the rest of us im sure! Lol.

I got my mojo back today, a good few hours of painting and I was chilled yet focused at the same time. This is the start of the Zebulon renaissance... next up a warp lightning cannon! And a new tactical squad! More posts tomorrow.

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!!
