Forgeworld Space Wolves Venerable Dreadnought WIP 2

Hi all

For my second post today I bring a small up date on my forgeworld venerable dreadnought. So far I've assembled the major components, magnetized the arms and done any greenstuff work that was required.

As you'll notice the wolf pelt banner isn't attached to it yet. Partly this is because I've noticed its slightly warped and will need correcting and partly because I intend to paint it separately. 

You can see that there is greenstuff just to the left of the bit the arms goes onto. This wasn't because of any flaw in the resin. I found that the plasma cannon was just slightly too heavy to stay where it should and ended up pointing at the floor. It stayed level fine until you knocked the model a bit and then it just pivoted down. To prevent this I placed a second magnet just behind where the gun fits on and placed a corresponding magnet in the arm (see picture below). I also did this to the assault cannon even though it didn't move anywhere just to be on the safe side.

Well that's it for this post. 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.

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)
