Iron Hands Captain Aethon

Hey all, today I return with my finished Iron Hands version of Captain Aethon, I'm going to rename him but I'm not sure what yet haha

So this is how I last posted him, he had had his colours blocked out and the metallics done. I picked home up again the other day and decided to finish home off before starting with my Tactical Marines and voila!

I really like painting him, I got to use my new Vallejo paints on his cloak, which think has come out really well with minimal effort on the shading. The hardest part of home was his metal embellishments. I had originally done them as a mix of bronze and silvers as on the Forge World website it's how's the mk.iii iron hand squad sergeant with bronze on him to, I assume, denote rank. The problem with this, was because I had quite a dull silver and done chevrons on his chainfist,  he looked very...... Iron Warrior like. Heresy!

To correct this I dry brushed over the bronze with silver to take away the bronze edge to them, leaving him looking that the above picture! Not bad I think! He's all done and ready to lead my Iron Hands company into war!

Well that's all for now,  feel free to leave a comment below whether that 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!!
