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.

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.

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)

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
