Finished Cataphractii Terminators

Hey all,
I'm back today with my completed Iron Hands Cataphractii Terminators! Im exceptionally pleased with how they've turned out, so with out further adoo:

 First up we have Sgt. Crastus! Im very pleased with his skin and the highlights on his forehead, it adds depth to the face and his beady red eye give that cold mechanical feel to him.

This was a picture that I took before he was based, mainly to show Blackmane my progress, but you can see the effect I've painted on the power sword. The idea behind it was to emulate the fires of the forge, like a piece of worked steel. Darker orange on the inside to a brighter orange/yellow on the edges. It was done with successive yellow additions to vallejo orange red paint and then dry brushed on the edges. Since the above photo was taken another thin was of Fuegan Orange was given to it to blend the drybrushed layers together, the result is the first pic, giving it that hot glow.

Second we have Brother Orlac, he would be the acting Sgt if anything happened to Crastus. Again, I'm very pleased with his skin and the overall demeanor on him.

The other three brothers came out great too. Very robust looking and the weathering on the lower legs helps to suggest relatively new deployment, but actually being in a campaign. I've not tried any free hand on these guys as I intend to pick up the Iron Hand transfer sheet from Forge World on payday and apply them to give them a more Iron Hand Legionary feel.

I've done some quick bases with a dirt effect to them, they have all been painted in the same way as the weathering on the lower legs. The rhino hatch panel and lasgun were painted green, then muddied the same way as the bases.

Lastly I picked out the metal on Cpt. Aethon's armour, it needs washing and then some bronze adding to it to break up the mass of silver on him. however he is a project for another day!

Well that's all for today, feel fee to leave a comment below, whether it be good bad or inbetween!

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!!
