Army of the White Hand: Uruk-hai Pikemen and Swords

Hey all,

today I bring the second post on Blackmanes rather devine Christmas present. As with the wargs previously, I recieved 22 Pike and Sword Uruks.
Anybody who collected the Battle Games in Middle Earth Magazine will know that they were featured in issue 4 and these guys (along with a big does of the movies) were what cemented my love for all things evil in the Lord of the Rings SBG. Very simple to paint but always a treat to see on the battle field

I have had many of these guys over the last 14 years or so ( approx 60) but due to my own inability to store them properly when i was younger, they have mostly all broken, the pikes have snapped or the swords have snapped at the hilt, one even melted when I was trying to dry them using a halogen light!

So when Blackmane gave me these I was over the moon! His brilliant painting skills on one of my long time favourite kits was awesome! He kindly left me the bases black so I could of it how I wanted, I think Im going to go with a wet muddy look ala Helm Deep, I'm so very very chuffed with these guys and the wargs!

Well thats all for now, as always if you have any comments, whether they be good bad or in between, feel free to leave them in the comments 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!!
