Ultramarine Contemptor & Tau Barricuda

Hey all,
today I bring a quick update on a coupleof things, firstly is my Ultra Venerable Contemptor which I finished a couple of weeks ago but haven't posted. On with the pics...

 Very pleased with how this came out! The keen eyed of you will notice that its missing the barrel and support of the assault cannon. Whilst it was in bits the pack that had the arm in (which was open) got dropped and it vanished! have been looking for a suitable replacement, but as yet have to find one. But it will do for now!

This is also the first time I've tried using weathering powders. I used Humbrol Black Soot on the exhaust pipes and used my own home made powders to create the mud on the legs. I bought a brown to black pack of pastels and crushed them up. They work just was well and you can cake on the layers really easily! As you may notice as,well he is stood on a Hive Tyrant head. This is because its all part of a bigger diorama that I'm making and will post pics when it moves a bit further along!

Secondly I bring pics of Blackmane's rather opulent Christmas present for me. I nice Barracuda! Though currently I don't own the rules for it, I will have them soon and it's going to be fielded in my tau almost every game, I mean who doesn't like the idea of a flying Ion Cannon?!?! haha. Equipped with said Ion Cannon, two Burst Cannons and 2 Seeker Missiles that drop down from below. I love it! Also this is the new colour scheme my Tau will be branded in. Though I'm not sure on the basing. Cityscape again or something else...hmm....

Love the fact that this model come with an ejectable pilot and canopy and its the first Air Caste I own too!

Well thats all for now,

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!!
