Time Off Well Spent: Ultramarine Additions

Hi all,
it's been quite a while since I updated you with anything, the last was my Hammerhead tanks which are still underway, just detailing and lenses to do on those. As usual I've been perusing Ebay for bargains and bit and I definitely found one!

A very nice Forge World Venerable Dreadnought, for £20. Mostly black when I bought it, gold areas mostly painted and so was the plasma cannon. A couple of hours to do the armour and a bit less to do the metal parts and arms and Bobs your Uncle, a nice Ultramarine dreadnought. Still not totally finished, as I type this I have just received my first set of the new GW paints, glazes and washes, mainly blues (oddly enough) and will give them a go on this fella.

Then on Saturday, Blackmane contacted me about a blog that was selling off some of its models as they are moving, namely (they have some amazing deals going, and it would definitely be worth your time checking them out!)  Blackmane had already got the Iron Breakers for £18 and pointed me to the Ltd Ed Games Day Kroot Shaper from 2001, for £6. WOW! What a find! So I snapped that up along with the US Ltd Edition Web Only Space Marine (a bit of a mouth full) for again £6! Both usually go for between £15 and £30 each on Ebay, I got both for £12 and £2 P&P, absolute bargain!

They are both sat on my painting table and I plan on starting the marine as some point today, with hopefully pics over the next day or two.I would like to apologies for the pictures, I'm not at my house and it's not my camera, so lighting and settings have alluded me this time.  Well that's all for today, as always any questions and queries are welcome.

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)
