Blackmanes Birthday Present: Imperial Fists Contemptor Dreadnought

Hey all today I bring a little post of what I was cooking for Blackmane's birthday, I wanted to do WIP posts, but that would have given the surprise away! So being the Dreadnought fanatic that I am, I decided to do something special for Blackmane's birthday;

This really was a labour of love for me. I spent at least 25-30 hours doing it, trying to paint it up as good as my abilities would let me! I did it in 3 stages, body, left arm, right arm and spent a good amount of time on each as I didn't want to rush it.

Overall, I was very proud how this came out. I think it's probably one of the best miniatures I've ever painted. Not saying that I'm a phenomenal painter or anything but for me, it's something I'm very proud of, but most of all Blackmane loved it too!

Rather than going on about how I painted it stage by stage here, I'll simply say if anyone would like to know about any of the stages I've done, please drop a comment below. I'm going to do a 'How To' guide to go in the painting section at a later date. Well that's it for today, if you have any comments, please feel free to drop 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!!
