Army of the White Hand: Saruman

Hey all today I bring the final post of Blackmanes spectacular Xmas presents, Saruman!

As I'm collecting a White Hand army, Saruman is my clear leader and standout in the force, true I have Lurtz, Ugluk, Captains, Sharku, Shamans and even Wormtongue, but Saruman was the one who created the Uruk-Hai. As I originally started collecting the Battle Games in Middle Earth magazine some 13 odd years ago I have a Saruman on foot, which at the time I believe Blackmane did for me when we were both starting out, which is ironic that he's painted both version of my commander in chief 14 years apart....

I've never hand Saruman of horse before an it will add some extra mobility to him on the battlefield. Also the pose really takes me, it's not a gallop but it looks like he's just come to a stop, which is very apropo for e general on horse back. In short I'm chuffed to bits!

Well thats all for now and as always if you have any comments, be they good, bad or in 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!!
