Blackmane vs Zebulon Painting Challenge!

Hi all.

Today marks the start of a new painitng challenge between myself (Blackmane) and Zebulon. As some of you may know from time to time we run a challenge where we pick a model (it might be one we both like, both want to try painting, both own, etc), set a time limit and get painting. The challenge this time is in a format we've only done once before in that we won't be painting the same model and we each picked the model the other will paint (link to the last one where we did an Empire General vs Wight King). 

The criteria were as follows:

  • An Age of Sigmar model
  • Had to have the HERO keyword
  • Under £20 in value
  • No rule on model material
  • No rule on specific factions/armies 
More after the jump. 
The first challenge of this type that we did we decided the model had to be one of the new (at the time) plastic characters. This time as stated there was no rules on that. 

So what have we chosen you ask. Well I have chosen for Zebulon to paint up the Kharadron Overlords Endrinmaster.

And Zeblon has chosen for me to paint up the Gaunt Summoner from the Warhammer Quest Silver Tower box (Which I do have. He originally wanted to choose the Gaunt Summoner on Disc of Tzeentch but it was above our agreed price limit).

So the challnege will run for two weeks until Monday 23rd of October at which point we'll post our work, finished or not, and then open a poll for you out there to vote on which you think is best. 

And so with that all laid out, and our models chosen and ready to go, all that's left to say is it's time to start painting! 

Thanks for having a read.

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)
