40K Abandoned Factory Display: Crates

Hello all, 

I'm back again with a small update on probably my most ambitious project to date. This time I've started with the smaller crates and containers that are going to be scattered around the interior of the factory. 

I'm pretty pleased with how they've come out. May have gone a little overboard with the silver on the rust on the blue crates and I'm tempted to go back over and correct it. The blue crates themselves were small smartie boxes coated in Macragge Blue, then stippled in Typhus Corrosion and lightly stippled in Ryza Rust and then some of the edges coated in Mithril Silver.

The larger red container was a thing that had an ink cartridge in it in my printer when I bought it. Undercoated in Imperial Primer and then bathed in Scab Red and dry brushed heavily on the edges with Boltgun Metal and the lighter drybrushed with Mithril Silver, washed with Nuln Oil and then Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust. Easy peasy!

Like I said just a quick update but progress is being made! As always feel free to leave comments and criticisms below and thanks for reading our little corner of the hobby.

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!!
