40k Scenery: Tractor

Hi all,

I'm back again today with a complete random tangent of a project! Total time spent on this was at most 2 hours. I had a toy tractor sat on my desk for ages and couple of weeks ago everything seemed to click......




First I removed a cab and raided my bits box. I dug put a random resin barrel and some arched off cuts from my Ttcombat power generator and some spare piping, using them to both hide tjat it was a tractor and to bring it slightly into the grimdark.


After giving its quick black spray undercoat I painted it Vallejo Royal Purple and Boltgun Metal for the open metal areas. As this is a civilian vehicle i decided on a bright colour to set it a part a little. After a liberal application of more Boltgun Metal for chips, scratches and general wear I started to weather and rust it.


I followed the standard technique of Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust and then went of the sharpest edges in Mithril Silver to hope it pop. The result is the below.......









This is easily one of my favourite scenery pieces! Very quick, very simple but I think it looks the part!

Well that all for today, as always comments and criticisms are always welcome!

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!!
