From Infinity Circuit: WIP Modular Terrain

Hey all, today whilst I was shopping around town, I had a brain wave! In a shop called Poundworld, (where every item is £1) I found these:



The difference being with mine is that it only has 3 tiers, not 4. Anyway, I had a idea and at £1 each, i thought that even if it went wrong at least id have more storage!


Firstly, i took the trays out and set them up like so, this was to mainly test scale against a miniature, the scale is perhaps a little tight, but you can get away with it, there isn't much head room inside the buildings when theyre stood in, never mind adding false walls!


Using 2mm plasticard I covered over all the backs to the building and then using 3mm foam card filled in the floors so there is somewhere for them to stand.


Then I moved on to blocking out the fronts on a few bits, it was just to break up the glass theme which Im going to have, similarly I though that a lot of the lower layers would be concrete rather than glass for builds sake as it the base of the building. Whilst they are quite small dimensions wise, they do look and work rather well for a small shop or office building. The challenge will be detailing them inside!

Same build with a mini for scale.

The real beauty of these is that the main structure can be reassembled any way you like really, I quickly tried a few examples below:






I really think this idea is great and in fact I am about to go and buy more in the rain!


Well thats all for now, if you have anything you'd like to say about these, whether it be good bad or in between, please feel free to say below :)

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!!
