Scrap Iron Hands Project: Iron Captain Morvellon

So today I took a detour from my Tactical Squad work and built a new Iron Captain for my Scrap Iron Hands. Ironically, most of the pieces on this mini are new and not scrap pieces....

My favourite thing on the model, without doubt, it the powerfist. Not only is it right handed, which for all intents and purposes seems to be almost heretical to have in the grim dark, you can actually see his normal hand inside the palm of the powerfist. The design of it too also strikes with me as its very different to more recent powerfirst, the flex on the fingers and the slab like nature of it almost reminds me of a Titan fist.

Having the cape adds motion to him and the bionic left arm and leg perhaps shows his injuries or could represent the embracing of the 'Flesh is Weak' mantra. The storm bolter too adds weight to the model coming off a terminator and the scope adds just that bit more tech feel to it. He too will be undercoated and join my other Iron Captain when I paint them both together.

Once again, that's it for today

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!!
