The Best 40K Building Kit I've Found So Far

Hi all,
righty so a couple of weeks ago I found this "Scorched Ruin" scenery kit on ebay and though for the price, approx £2.50 per kit ($3.94) including postage from Russia! Anyway I decided it was worth a gamble and bought 5 kits thinking that £12.50 for 5 building was a decent enough deal.
Two weeks go past and my items arrived yesterday, what I didn't realise is that its a reusable plastic kit! No glue required, you get 3 types of connectors T shapes, X shapes, L shapes and flat 1:1 connectors, you build your buildings and use them in play and then you can break them down and build a totally different set of buildings! It will make gaming a lot more interesting with a totally changeable city-scape at your disposal!


The pic above shows what one sprue looks like, it comes complete with 2 floor sections, 8 varying wall pieces and enough connectors to keep you happy. Which I though was good on it's own, but it get better, because of the design system of clips, you can combine kits to make bigger buildings!



The above pictures are of what a combination of two kits can look like. There's enough pieces to make a decent fronted building with smaller ruins on the back for a bit of depth.



Then using the same kit, I broke it down and rebuilt it into a taller apartment block type building, again with smaller pieces at the back for a bit of depth.


This picture is just for scale reference really and it's about right. Should have used a normal tac marine for this probably, however my usually readily available sprawling collection has been tidied away for a couple of day, so he had to do.

There are only two downsides to these kits, firstly the walls are incredibly thin, not in a material way, as they are fairly sturdy plastic and it would take a fair bit to snap them, but in scale comparison. I'm sure a Grot could punch his way though if he wanted to, never mind a boltgun! The second downside is that these are no longer available from the seller on ebay, otherwise I'd have posted a link and urged you to buy as many as you could afford! Aside from those little foibles I'm amazingly pleased with these buildings. They're cheap, reusable, fit in the style well and are about the right scale, maybe add a couple of aquila's here and there.

5* simple

With all this being said, has anyone else found these? Does anybody else know where to get them? I really want more. Thanks for reading and as always any comments are welcome!

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!!
