Covenant of Antarctica: Icarus Class Medium Flyer

Hi all

Today I bring some pictures of a couple more of my Covenant of Antarctica fleet. Today its the turn of the Icarus Class Medium Flyers. These are the first two that I've finished. I still have another two to do but I haven't got round to undercoating them yet and its juts not been the right weather for spray paints.

I like the design of these models. Essentially they're flying ships. They just look like they could equally be at home in the sea as well as the air. I think the thing I like most about them is the huge turbine that forms the core of the flyer and the little gyro type thing in the centre. The gyro reminds me of the gravity drive of the space ship in the film Event Horizon.

Now for some pretty pictures, enjoy!






I've really got the colour scheme down now and I'm finding that the time it takes me to paint them is starting to drop as a result. Hopefully this will mean the rest of my fleet should be done by the end of the month or early next month at the latest.

I'm starting to get quite excited about seeing my whole fleet finished and together. I'm also looking forward to the two new ships that were announced by Spartan Games the other week. I'll definitely be adding some when they get released.

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!!
