Seraphon Saurus Old Blood and Astrolith Bearer WIP

Hey all, I'm back once again with another WIP, this was more of a random tangent than a project. The Old Blood came in the same job lot as my Skink Priest and after stripping him down, I was short a weapon arm. It just so happens however, that on the Carnosaur sprues, there are 3 weapon for the rider, so I used one of those. The rock came from a random trip to the beach and looked perfect for a character (hero rocks ftw!). Since the photo was taken he's been undercoated black and I've added a little skull to the base to add some more subtle character to it. Really proud of this mini, mainly because it was so quick and effective to do.

Secondly here arrives my Astrolith Bearer! After playing my first game with my new Seraphon, the Astrolith Bearer made sense as the first addition. He can confer a +1 to casting rolls, which is very handy when using a Slann to try and bring in a Carnosaur!

He started out life as an old metal Temple Guard mini, and I've simply added lots of spare to him. The standards are from the Saurus Warriors box and the little icons dotted over it are from the Saurus Knights box. The only thing is he is supposed to have a hand weapon, but without major conversion, I've only been able to give him a shield. His left arms is moulded to his body as he's supposed to be ranked up. But the shield has some nice sharp pieces of metal on it, which can count as a hand weapon haha.

Well that's it for today and lots more to come as always!

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!!
