Ultarmarines Captain

Hi all

Today I bring some pictures of an Ultramarine Captain that I bought and have been painting up for Zebulon (aren't I nice? lol). Anyway after a fair while I've finally found the time over the past few days to get the model finished.

So how did I come to get my hands on this model in the fist place. Put simply I saw it in a shop that sells quite a lot of 2nd hand models. Sometimes something rare will show up, such as this captain which I'd never seen before. Seeing it was an Ultramarine Captain I kinda new I'd end up getting it for Zebulon. So a c couple of days later I went back and bought it. I then stripped it down (it was an awful paint job), and got it ready to paint.

And so here we are with some pictures of a new model for Zebulon.



There we go. One nice, 'new', shiny Ultarmarine Captain already for battle. I'm really happy with how he turned out. I tried a purple crystal like effect on the sword, like you see done by the 'Eavy Metal team on models such as the Grey Knights. It came out alright for a first attempt and no doubt I will get the hang of it with time.

Well that's it for today. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments, be they good or bad or somewhere in between.

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!!
