The Raven Has Landed



Hi all,
been a very long time coming this post but it (for me) is worth it. As following Blackmane's tradition of getting me awesomely amazing stuff for birthdays and Christmas, he can up with the corker for my birthday this year!
 First up is Kayvaan Shrike! Beautiful little model done in Blackmane's usual superb style! There's a very nice piece of free hand on Shrikes shoulder pad, which sadly is obscured by the jump pack, but at close examination it is rather spectacular!




Next up we have a little surprise, Blackmane had been taunting me with clues, saying it was Space Marine orientated, but my brain didn't click that that didn't necessarily mean Ultramarines (I should know by now see http://signoftheaquila.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/good-things-come-to-he-who-waits.html#more). Inside the box was these fine fellows!











Vanguard Veterans! I guessed Vanguard at one point, but presumed they'd be blue! haha. Got to admit I love them! Also opens up whole new possibilities for me fielding forces! Well painted as always by Blackmane, they're a dark claw on my attack plans!

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!!
