Lizardmen/Seraphon Terrain

Hey all, I'm here once again with a couple of new pieces I've picked up for my Lizardmen/ Seraphon. The first of which is a rather nice vacuum formed pyramid from Amera Plastic Mouldings

As you can see in the pic below its a very large piece and with something that size you would expect quite a large price tag..... well no. The whole thing, including postage cos me £10.50 ($15) which I think is incredible value for money! I think the reason for the low price is because it's vacuum formed as opposed injection moulded or cast. It's also incredibly lightweight and flexible, which is good in my experience as its less likely to crack.

I think my Slann and Priest look very at home on the pyramid. It is in the process of painting and I should have the finished article up soon. The pyramid itself is going to reflect the stone palanquin my Slann sits on, a nice sandy colour.  If you wish to see more about Amera Plastic Mouldings here is a link to their site and I'd give it 10/10!

Having purchased and read the Lustria campaign book I got the itch to get some jungle scenery, the pyramid was a good centre piece but I wanted plenty of scatter terrain. Going to local shops, the cheapest aquarium plants I found were £3-4 each ($4-6) which for one pant isn't too bad but if want a lot then it will cost a small fortune!

Instead I turned to Aliexpress. I found lots of plants on there from as little a 30p (43c) so are quite large and leafy, good for large jungle pants, others are more grass like which could go well on character bases!

However, my favourite thing I found was a single sheet of grass type plants, its supposed to sit in the bottom of a fish tank I guess however after having chopped it up it works a very nice dense terrain, one sheet is enough to give you just the right amount of jungle scatter without being too overpowering. As well, as you can see the scale itself is pretty perfect and to top it off, it only cos me a couple of pounds! The only bad thing is the waiting time for delivery, usually 2-3 weeks, but the money savings are worth it if you ask me!

Well that's all for now and my little ramblings! Feel free to leave and comments or suggestions below and thanks for having a read!

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!!
