House Taranis Marches to War!

Hi all.

Today I bring some pictures of my long in the works Knight Titan. I actually finished it (and a couple of other things coming in future posts) a few weeks back but just haven't had time to sit down and write a post. 

So on with the pictures after the jump.

 Despite taking me ages to finish, I'm really happy with how it's turned out. A couple of the transfers on the shoulder guards didn't go on quite right but no matter. I opted to make my Knight a Knight of House Taranis. I first came across them in the Mechanicum Horus Heresy book and really liked them. So it was an easy choice to make when it came to painting my own Knight. I've given my knight the number 1 as I've decided that if I get any others this will be the lead Knight in the group. I've then included a stripe with skull with numbers either side as a marking indicating a campaign army group it has recently been part of as part of my own made up fluff. 

Painting the model was reasonably straight forward with the hardest thing to do been the white armour plates. It took me many attempts to get a nice clean white that I was happy with. I'm very happy with how the Martian Ironearth paint has turned out on the base to create the cracked, red earth of Mars. 

Well that's all for today. Thanks for having a look and please feel free to leave any comments be they good, bad or somewhere 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!!
