Tau Ghostkeel WIP

Hey all, today I bring an update on my Ghostkeel suit I got for Christmas from my niece. I'm rotating through my projects trying to give them equal amounts of time. As kits go this is a very nicely put together, again it shows the massive advantages of digital sculpting!


 I made the base from some random scenery bitz I got in a joblot, it adds a bit more dynamism to the pose, I got the idea from the Shadowsun art in the codex.


The scenery also helps in projecting a scene as it seem like it's protecting the pathfinders below. They themselves came about as it seemed like there would be a lot of empty space between the Ghostkeel legs after it had been posed.



They will be part of the base rather than on their own. The plan is to also give them camouflage cloaks, like they're a deep recon team that has meat up with the Ghostkeel. The plan also is for a tattered Imperial banner hanging off the Eagles on the post. The weapons are magnetised and the cockpit fully opens. Can't wait to get on painting it! 

That's all for now, if you like what you see then feel free to leave a comment below, whether it be good bad or in between!

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!!
