Firestorm Armada: The Overseers

Hi all.

Today I bring the last of my Firestorm Armada ships from the Return of the Overseers starter box. This time its the Aforementioned Overseers themsleves. 

The set comes with two things from the Overseers. There is a small probe like ship. Bigger than the frigates of the Aquan and Directorate fleets but not quite as big as the medium ships. And then there is the Overseer space gateway (can't remember its actual name off the top of my head).

So on with some pictures.

Next up is the big gateway thing. The big base piece is made of 4 parts that you don't actually have to glue together. The big 'gateway' itself is just coloured acrylic with a design that has been shallowly cut (I assume laser etched to be precise), as far as I can tell but looks quite cool. 

For both the probe and gateway I wanted to stick to simple. So both were based with Leadbelcher. I then washed the both with Nuln Oil Gloss as I wanted to maintain a shiney finish whereas normal Nuln Oil does somewhat dull the Leadbelcher as I'm sure you're all aware. I then very lightly drybrushed them with a lighter silver though I don't remember which one. As far as I can remember I then used some Thraka Green wash (don't know if that's the new or old name for that particular wash, I think old)  to add the green glowing to various parts. I just picked out parts I felt should have a glowing look so it's prehaps a little random. 

Overall I'm happy enough with how they turned out. I didn't want to invest as much time in them as the main fleets as they'll likely only get used if I play through the included getting started campaign in the box. I also just wanted to keep them quick and simple, again as part of the not spending too much time on them. 

Well that's all for today. Thanks for taking the time to have a look. Please feel free to leave a comment be it good bad or somewhere in between.

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.

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.

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)
