And now for something completely different.....

Hi all.

Today I bring a post that is a little different. A few days ago I was chatting to a couple of friends who asked me if I could do something for them. I should include a little bit of background here. They have recently been buying lego in order to complete sets that one of them already had from being a kid. This has led to them having a decent amount of lego. It also follows that they of course mess around making their own stuff. Now one of them is a fan of Frozen and she has been attempting to make the ice palace and related characters. 
This is the point at which I come in. You see she had a piece of lego hair for one of the characters but it wasn't the correct colour. So naturally they asked if I could possibly repaint the piece the colour they wanted. I of course said yes and so this post comes in to existence. 

Here are the 3 WIP pictures that I took as I was doing it. They show the start, middle and end of the paint job. The piece of hair next to the painted piece is the kind of colour I had to aim for. The piece to be painted started out brown. 





Overall it turned out pretty close to the piece I had to roughly match. I was allowed to add shading to the recesses to make it look much better. I started by basing it white before using washes of yellow to build the colour seen in the second picture. From there I used one of the pale yellowish edge paints (I forget the name) to add the highlight to the hair which led to the more or less finished piece in picture 3. It was a fun little distraction to all the other things I have to paint and was well worth it to help out my friends. Ironically they have now asked me to paint another piece that has a starting colour similar to the one I've done and paint it a red/brown colour which is very similar to how this one started haha. 

Well that's it for this post. As always thanks for taking the time to have a look.

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.


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.
