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

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.

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)

Drakwald Carnalites Minotaur WIP

Hey all.l,

I'm back today with the first WIP for my Carnalites. As somewhat of a tester for the team I picked the Minotaur as he has both armour and skin/fur that can be translated across the team.
