Scrap Iron Hands Project: Tactical Squads WIP

Hey all, I've go an update today about my Scrap Iron Hands project, today I'm looking at my Tactical Squads. I've assembled 3 of these from mostly the various bits that I already accumulated from job lots:

First up is Squad Celdorr, equipped with a heavy bolter and flamer for horde nasties! The marine on the far left has a Forge World head from the character upgrade set and a Space Wolf bolter, given to the squad by Egil Ironwolf after a campaign together, the bolter appears never jam and has advanced noise surpession and recoil buffers. The squad is a mixture of multi-part and single pose plastics.

Secondly is Squad Bandar, again armed with flamer and heavy bolter.

Lastly is Squad Tebren, again armed with a flamer, but this time with a rocket launcher for a bit more punch at range and again made from single pose and multipar marines.

I've been very lucky really in my scrap marines I've picked up, sometimes the poses are bad or plastic glued together to stop disassembly, fortunately they needed little work pose wise and are ready for an undercoat before their major dry brushing! I did purchase the heavy bolter sets from ebay and I've been scrobbling for powerpacks to kit them all out. 

All in all I'm happy with them, they just need an undercoat and an assigned transport each, which i also have!

Well that's it from now,

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!!
