Forgeworld Space Wolves Venerable Dreadnought WIP 3

Hi all

Today I bring an update on my forgeworld dreadnought. Since my last post on it (http://signoftheaquila.blogspot.com/2012/01/forgeworld-space-wolves-venerable_18.html), I have undercoated it, done the silver metal work and (as of this morning) started the armour.
Now for some pictures.



 

As can be seen from the pictures I have chosen to add a couple of splashes of colour on the front in the form of red, yellow and white. I chose these because they are widely used in space wolf imagery. I think they look quite good and just help to break up the blue-grey colour on the front. The metal area's wered one with boltgun metal, washed with badab black and then dry brushed with chainmail. I've added weathering to the top of the exhausts and added some washes to the pipes under the power pack to give the impression on oil and grease. I've done the same on part of the mechanical mechanisms on the legs.

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!!
