Blackmane & Zebulon Versus Challenge: Blackmane Update

Hi all.

If you read the post by Zebulon on Sunday then you'll know that Zebulon and myself are currently involved in a grueling challenge of hobby and painting skill (ok that may be a bit over the top). Anyway this is just a  quick update to keep everyone up to date on my progress with only 3 days left to go.

So far I've made all the modifications, big and small, to my jump pack chaplain model. He's been basecoated and is ready for painting. However I will admit that I had intended to start painting him today but got side tracked, basing 89 models to be exact (more on those another day). That means I'm currently behind my own imposed schedule but I'm hoping to have him pretty much done by tomorrow night. This means I should meet the 5pm deadline on Sunday.

Now this kind of post would normally warrant a few nice WIP pictures. However, Zebulon and myself agreed not to post any in order to keep the final models a suprise for ourselves and all you out there. So with that there really isn't much more I can say as I don;t wish to give anything away.

As always thanks for reading and please drop by on Sunday to see the end results of mine and Zebulons week of toil and hardship (over the toip again isn't it?).

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!!
