For Dorn! For The Emperor! 2: Imperial Fists Cataphractii Terminator Captain

Hi all.

To round out the working week I bring the second of the two models I said I had been working on in my post on Monday. In this case it's an Imperial Fists Cataphractii Terminator Captain. Again this is a model from the Betrayal and Calth box and I picke dit up on ebay at the same time as the Chaplain. 

On with some pictures. 

 More after the jump.

Overall I 'm really happy with how it tutned out. I started working on him after I had finished the Chaplain. However not learning from my lesson I started the cloak first again. While it hadn't been too bad working round it on the Chaplain it was much more difficult on this model. The inside of the cloak is much more visable and as a result so is the back of the legs so I couldn't ignore these parts as much as I did on the Chaplain. I deciced to go for a darker colour inside the cloak on this model rather than doing it cream like the Chaplain. The reason for this is that the armour of the model is quite bright anyway and in my mind the cloak interior needed to be dark to make the armour really stand out in front of it. The outside of the cloak though I chose to do in a nice purple which I felt would work really nicely with the yellow armour. As with the Chaplain I'm really happy with it. I took the unusual step of shading the purple with orange but I think it worked well. Also unusually for me I tried adding some weathing to certain parts of the model. I added a few chips to the armour and tried to make the leather pteruges look like the had some wear and tear as would befit an ancient suit of terminator armour. 

Well that's all for today. Thanks for taking the time to have a look and please feel free to leave any comments be the 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)
