The Greater Good Gets a Great Overhaul WIP 1

Well hello all,
its been a very long time since I posted anything, it doesn't help having a very busy life and then moving house and having no internet for a month! But it was all worth it as I'm now relocated closer to friends, work and certain gaming stores.... also I now have a permanent table to throw down on. This has been at least once a week for the last month or so, so i'm getting in practice!

I may not be winning (damn you Ghazghkull!) but I'm learning very quickly. My regular opponent gifted me with his old Tau force, which I'm repainting (along with my own). My Cadre now consists of 2x Ethereals, Shadowsun, O'Shova, 5x Crisis Suits, 2x Broadsides, 4x Fire Warrior squads, 2x Kroot squads, a Stealth Team 2x Devilfish and a Hammerhead. Which is really the point of my post today.

I've gone a bit Hammerhead mad and I've fiddled with my Devilfish and ordered 2x Hammerhead weapon sprus from GW so I can field them as either. The next game we have will see 3 of them take to the field. More is good right?

For the new scheme I've gone down the full camouflage route, though its not really clear on the photos there is some subtle air-brushed patterns, which look awesome close up (if I do say so myself).

I'm really pleased with how they're going so far, it helps that today I discovered Vallejo do proper airbrush paints in my local DIY shop, so a couple of bottles later, I had some great looking tanks! As you can probably see they're still not finished yet, but I have a bit of time to myself over the next week and hopefully I'll have them done by the weekend.

Well that's my update for today, and I'm pretty sure there's a lot more to come! Thanks for reading and if you have any comments, good, bad or in-between feel free to add them below.

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!!
