For Dorn! For The Emperor!: Imperial Fists Chaplain

Hi all. 

Today Is my birthday (Happy Birthday to me I guess haha) and I thought I'd share pictures of one of a pair of the models I've been working on for the last few weeks. First up it's an Imperial Fists Chaplain. It's the chaplain model from the Betrayal at Clath set. I picked it up off ebay but for the life of me I can't remember when. 

So on with some pictures.

 More after the jump. 




I really like how the model has turned out. Kind of stupidly I started with the cloak which I did regret later but just had to do my best to work around it. Having said that the cloak is possibly my favourite part of the finished model. I spent a long time working on it, using my wet palette to try and create nice smooth tranisitions and I think it's turned out really well. I also decided to go for a predominantly cream crozius as I wanted something a bit different to the big chuck of gold you might usually see. Myself and Zebulon joked it would never stay clean but came up with the idea that the blood of traitors and xenos was such an anathema to such a symbol of Imperialness that blood, dirt and such would simply just not stick. I suppose some kind of secret, lost hyrophobic tech built into it and now forgotten. 

Well that's all for today. Thanks for taking the time to have a look 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!!
