Ultramarines Venerable Dreadnought WIP


Hey all, a little post on a soemthing something ive picked up! 
As an Ultramarine player and a bit of a Dreadnought fanatic, I've always wanted this model since it cam out, however at roughlyl £55 ($81 US) for this model, it is a tad expensive. However me being me, I found on for auction on eBay and managed to buy it for £10.50 ($15.60 US). 



The image on the right is how it came to me, in the process of packing it suffered a broken banner which was an easy fix although it did lose a little height off the banner, the seller kindly refunded me the postage so I got it for £7 ($10.41 US). I've started re-painting it how I'd like and in a bit more detail. The only slightly annoying thing about it is the base was flocked, which I've just painted over grey and will highlight. The weapons are glued on unfortunately but I think I can remove them and then get it magnetised.

This is Dreadnought 10 of my collection, and I was wanting something a little special for no.10, so this played out pretty well! Well thats it for now and please feel free to check out min and Blackmanes Urien Rakarth's and vote above!

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!!
