Zebulon's Necromunda Van Saar Gang WIP

Hey all, I'm back today with a new project I'm working on. My gaming group decided to start a Necromunda campaign, the first week of every month is Necromunda Wednesday. Ive never played Necromunda before but it seems very similar to Mordheim which I love, so I've started building a gang!

Through buying random job lots off ebay I had amassed 4 Van Saar gang members.

I decided to go with these guys mainly because I already had them haha, it was a start! 1 Leader, 1 Ganger, a Juve and my Heavy Weapons chap ( minus his heavy stubber). 

I've added various models to the so now I have 1 leader, 3 gangers, 4 juves and my heavy weapon chap, now with heavy stubber! I've got 5 minis left to get units I have one of every pose.

When it came to painting I decided to move away from the traditional green body gloves the Van Saar wear and went for a grey and orange scheme. I'm really liking the grey schemes at the minuet, the one I used on my Slann a couple of months ago really spoke to me and I decided to carry it over onto my Gang. 

I first went to paint my leader. 

I'm very happy with how he turned out, though I need to glaze or wash his face to bring down the highlight on his cheeks a little. My initial thoughts on the models themselves changed whilst I was painting him. At first look, Van Saar minis look very bland, they're not austentatious like Goliath Gangs or have long flowing trenchcoats like Delaque. Their beauty is in their smaller details. The pipes that run across the suit, the hard patches on their suits, their incredibly 80's Van Damme mullets and impressive goatees! It's suits them and their fluff of being rather straight forward and practical.

Having played 2 games so far, I'm loving them as a gang. It's also very handy that their Gangers can get Tech Skills,  they are the only gang who can do that!

So 1 down and 8 to go so far! That's it for today,  feel free to leave a comment below if you like what you see.

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!!
