Zebulon's New Mordheim Skaven Warband Pt.1 : Rat Ogre


Hey all, 

today I bring a quick update on my Mordheim project playing admirably my Middenheim border patrol warband were annihilated by the Undead in my last game and so I have decided to retire them from active service and competition. This has allowed me to try and do a Skaven warband instead! Those who have seen the blog beofre will know I am partial to Skaven and this seemed like something I's like to try! 
So the first thing I was excited by in the Skaven options was the Rat Orgre, having bought two for my Skaven army a couple of years ago I have today dusted one off and finally finished! ( According to Blackmane I base coated and washed them on Jan 7th 2013, so 2 years later and one's finally done!)


The hardest thing I had to do on this was the skin, I'm not good at it and probably 2/3 of the model is! I had great fun using the GW technical paints on this, BFTBG was stippled onto the cuts, Nihilak Oxide on the bronze armour plate and after this pic was taken, I decided to try Agrellan Earth on the base as its something ive never tried before. 

Im actually quite chuffed with this model, it a nice start to my warband. Tomorrow I'm going to have a blast at the rest of my warband!

Well thats all for today, as always f you have and comments whether they be good bad or inin between please feel free to leave them 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!!
