New Models and They're Not GW....Shock Horror

HI all,

Today  Sign of the Aquila takes it first step away from GW models. Yes its heresy I know but we'll be coming back to good old GW soon enough. I've been meaning to do this post for about 2 weeks but just haven't had the time.

So where does this first venture from GW take me? To the miniatures produced by Kingdom Death. I've been looking at their models for quite a while now since I first became aware of them through Bell of Lost Souls. So the other week while looking at their site and taking a liking to one of the limited edition models they had at the time, I took the opportunity to order it and one of the others that I liked.

So here we are the first 2 non-GW models that I've come to own.



First up is the limited edition Great Game Hunter Female. Each model comes with a full colour art card and the models are packaged in nice little cardboard boxes. 





Also inside the the box is a small part of the larger artwork, again in full colour. The above picture shows the contents of the the models box.  


The model itself is very nice. Although it doesn't show up very well in the picture the detail on the model is fantastic. There's not a lot of flash to clean up and very few if any mould lines. There are also no flaws in the casting unlike with GW's finecast resin. 


The cloak has some nice details on the corners. 


The weapons for the model are on this separate sprue. Again very little cleaning up will be required.

Next up is the  Twilight Knight Pinup model. This is one of the models that Kingdom Death has up for general release. Again there is a full colour piece of artwork and it comes in a cardboard box.



Again there is a smaller piece of artwork taken from the bigger one.


Again the detail on the miniature is fantastic which is kind of expected from a resin model.


There were a couple of area's on the cloak that were a little thin and could have potentially led to holes in the cloak where there shouldn't have been. To fix this applied a little green stuff to the inside of the clock in order to bulk up these area's and prevent any holes developing.


Again the weapons are on a separate sprue along with the head for this model.

Overall I'm very impressed with the quality of the models from Kingdom Death and I'm very much looking forward to having a go at painting. I think they'll be quite different to paint compared to the kind of things I'm used to painting.

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.

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.


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.
