Covenant of Antartica: Plato Class Cruisers

Hi all

Today I bring some more pictures of some completed Covenant of Antarctica models. This time its the turn of the Plato Class Cruisers. These came in the starter fleet box but I've only just got round to painting these ones. They are very similar in size, shape and style to the Zeno Class Cruisers that I painted in the first batch of models. The obvious difference is that these ships have a turret at the front and rear of the model rather than one main weapon like the Zeno Class ships. I think the best use of these ships will be to gang up on bigger ships and try to inflict damage at range bands 1 or 2 with lots of linked fire. With a shield generator each they may survive a little longer up close but ultimately I won't expect them to survive the whole game at that range against a bigger ship/s.

To the pictures!

As with all my ships so far I'm happy with how these have turned out. I can see these been regulars in my fleet as they are relatively cheap points wise and can put out quite a bit of firepower for their size.

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.

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.

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)

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.
