Tarnhelm 3rd Lord Commissar

Hi all

Today I bring a 40k post for your enjoyment. I've been working on this model for quite a while and I finally got it finished the other day. I would have posted it then but that night I lost the internet for 6 days as it got changed over. What bad timing lol. The model in question is my Commissar Lord. I got it a while ago and have been working on it on and off for a while. Other projects got started and I took up Dystopian Wars so it got pushed further down my queue of unpainted models. However I got tired of it sat on my desk so I got it painted up.

So have a look at the pictures and see what you think.






I'm very happy with how the model has turned out especially the red on the inside of the cloak. I used my wet palette to achieve the fairly smooth layers however I still need a bit more practice with my wet palette in order to achieve really smooth layering. I kept everything else fairly simple as I wanted the reds to be the main colour on the model. I also like the idea of my Lord Commissar been more like Gaunt in the sense that he doesn't really like all the pomp and ceremony and so would rather keep his stuff simple.

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.


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!!
