Blackmane & Zebulon Versus Challenge 2: High Elf on Griffon

Hi all.

Today I come with news of mine and Zebulon's next Vs Challenge. The first challenge was to paint up the finecast chaplain. Our next one is to paint up the high elf on griffon that is part of the Island of Blood set. The format is pretty much the same as last time. We have a set period of time in which to paint up the model in question as well as make any changes that we want to make. Once the time is up we will then each put up a post with pictures of our finished models at which point a poll will be added and then its up too you, the readers, to choose the winner of the challenge.

The start date will be Saturday the 6th of August at 9am GMT. The finish date will be Sunday the 14th August at 5pm. The poll will open once pictures of both models have been displayed. The poll will be open for one week.

With less than 13 hours to go before then next challenge starts I have to admit I'm quite excited abot this one. While I enjoyed the first one (winning was a bonus), I didn't have to really push my paintinng skills much. This time however the light colours of the high elf will prove a challenge as I'm not great at painting them. There's also the Griffon to consider. I've never really painted a beast/monster before so it should prove interested.

With that I'm going to busy myself with some other bits until I start tomorrow. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look.

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.

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.

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)
