A quick update from Blackmane

Hi all

It's been a while since I posted anything but I have been really busy at university. The first week back after christmas we were given 4 assignments so unfortunately the hobby has had to take a back seat for the time being.

Having said that it hasn't stopped me buying many new things over the past few weeks. The Dwarfs been the primary focus of my spending spree though thanks to the weekly release schedule it was stretched out over 4 weeks rather than all at once haha. I have to say I really like all the new kits. I think the gyrocopter is a vast improvement over the old one, the new models for hammers/ironbreakers and longbeards are all amazing. I have promised myself the I will assemble and paint all of these before buying anymore of them to make bigger units. And then we come on to the characters both named and not. I love the all. As someone who is studying engineering Grimm Burloksson has a certain appeal it has to be said. 

And then on top of that GW announced the worst kept secret of the last few weeks the Imperial Knight. I will definitely be getting one of those on launch. I'm certain more will follow in time. I think I'm eventually planning on doing one Adpetus Mechanicus aligned knight, probably Taranis as I loved the Mechanicum HH book, one Imperial aligned knight and one Freeblade. 

I've also bought a couple of models by Knight models, namely Iron Man and The Riddler. I noticed them in my local game store and couldn't resist. I'm really looking forward to having a go at painting them when I get the time. 

Hopefully I will get some free time soon so I can do a little bit of painting and maybe get something more worthy of a post on the blog or at least a WIP.

Well that's it for this post. As always thanks for taking the time time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments be they good, 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!!
