The New Ultramarine Standard

Well in my recent trawling of ebay I stumbled upon this fellow which I got for a very very reasonable £15.

He's a ltd edition Ultramarine Standard Bearer, released as part of the Skullz promotion in 1999/2000 ( , apparently to get enough Skullz to get him, you'd need to spend about £400, whether that's true or not I'm not sure. However, he's mine now and is going to be part of my Command Squad, which also contains the GD '98 Apothecary ( and the OOP Captain I got last week too ( Plus some Tyrannic War Veterans. Also contemplating trying to get other Games Day Marine releases, but they're starting to get pretty pricey.

This is part of my project to build the whole named Ultramarine Command Structure, every company Captain and every named character. Will take a while, but will be worth it in the end.

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!!
