Building Mordheim - Buildings WIP

Hey all,
today I bring another WIP update (seems like I have a lot of projects at the minuet!). Yesterday I started building scenery for my Mordheim board. I found some amazing examples on the interwebs, thoug I dont think mine will be quite that good! I'm going for the rough and haggard approach. It is the city of the damned and even before the meteor struck, I would have thought that maintenance wouldn't have been a super high priority in a medieval type fantasy town. So here are some pics!

 Basically the building is just a cardboard box, its one of the ones that various bits arrived in from GW, anyway, it was about the right size so I used it! I cut the box to housey shape removing extra flaps and cut it into 3, then basingit  on some thinner card. All three section still fit together, so I can combine any of the pieces together to make a couple of different buildings if I want.

 Next came the framing. Most building have that medieval/tudor look to them and living in York like I do (basically for people who don't know lol, York grew up in and around a castle, the city centre is contained mostly within the castle walls and so has examples of architecture from the 16/1700's to modern day) I had a brief wander. Like I said earlier, it wont be perfect, I am trying to do this on a budget with limit tools, so the rough and ready approach is what im going for.

The building will get a roofing structure and I will detail the inside, a second fllor is going in as well as maybe a fire, windows, general muck and grime that sort of thing. The outside wil be painted with a textured paint, probably in grey. Thinking it might be a magic shop or an inn, we'll see what takes my fancy. The cladding is (if you cant guess) entirely made out of lolly pop sticks, chopped and slightly carved to be given a worn look. and will be finished in brown for...well...wood. Will crack on with this later and post updates as I get something done!

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!!
