Firestorm Armada: Directorate Medium Class Ships

Hi all,

Today I'm bring some pictures of the Dictatorate medium class ships for Firestorm Armada. Again these are ships I picked up in the Return of the Overseers boxset last year. 

First up are the Turmoil Class R&D Cruiser.There were 2 of these in the boxset. I thought these had a really interesting design to them. They remind me slightly of some sci-fi ship I've seen somewhere but can't put my finger on where (If anyone has any suggestions I'd be happy to hear them).So on with some pictures.






As with the small class ships I've kept most of the model dark with the really stark green highlights on hull plates. As I mentioned in my post on the small ships, this colour scheme was chosen by my girlfriend as these ships are more for her than for me. Having said that I think it does make them look a little sinister which the Dictatorate certainly are. 

Next up are the Annihilation Class Gunships. Again there were 2 of these in the boxset. Like with the Aquan ships in the box the Dictatorate ships share components. In this case its the outer hull pieces that are the same on the cruiser and gunships.  






Overall I'm really happy with how the ships have turned out. The only thing I'd maybe like to improve is the the quality of the highlights. I feel some of my edge highlighting is a bit rough and uneven. That just leaves the big ships for the Dictatorate and the Aquans which I'll cover in a future post. 

That's all for today. Thanks for taking the time to have a read and please feel free to leave a comment be it good, bad or somewhere in between.

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!!
