I Will Take The Ring To Mordor

Hi all.

Recently I've been wanting to get some of my LotR character's painted as a while ago I stripped a lot of them down to do again. While this means they will hopefully look better than before it has had the disadvantage of leaving me with few hero's (good and evil) to lead the various armies I have. So with that in mind a dug a few out and decided what better place to start than with the hobbit himself, Frodo Baggins. 

While he won't be leading any armies, he has uses in some scenario's and of course I want a fully painted Fellowship.

So on with some pictures. 

 More after the jump.

As I mentioned in my terminator librarian post skin is a bit hit and miss for me and unfortunately I've hit a bit of a miss with Frodo's face. I'm not sure if it's just a result of been a small area or perhaps to thick a coat of paint but it just didn't come out as well as hoped. I may go back and try and correct it at some point but for now it will do. The rest of the model I think has turned out well and I'm happy with him.  I suppose the next thing I should do is consider painting Sam, Merry and Pippin but I'll see. 

Well that's all for today. Thanks for reading.

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.

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.

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)
