We’re back with another Community Spotlight as we delve into some of your wonderful work from the Hobby & Painting Forum. We have some amazing projects this week showing off plenty of wonderful techniques.
Let’s dive in and check out the first of our entries which comes from the wonderful world of Labyrinth…
Labyrinth Characters by darkdangan
These models were added to his wife’s collection as part of the board game over Christmas and soon became a priority for him to paint.
So here they are, looking utterly fantastic with plenty of big bright colours on show. We think that darkdangan has gone beyond the call of duty on these board game pieces, especially to go as far as to work on the basing too. It certainly makes us feel a little bad about all the board game pieces we haven’t painted yet!
They look wonderful on the game board and it’s a really nice to see that the hobby grows out of everything we play on the tabletop. As mentioned above the bright colours are a must for Labyrinth to let the characters shine. Ludo, in particular, looks utterly fantastic. and so much attention has gone into painting his fur.
The Others: 7 Sins Characters by agis
The next set of models we’re looking at is a little bit different and darker than the lovable characters of Labyrinth. Here we have some of the most current models painted up by agis for The Others: 7 Sins and its Hell Club as well as one of the members of the Faith Team.
The Hell Club Member Grin (Middle) and Faith Brusier Wengsi Wong (Right) are the newest additions to his collection. The bright red work here is fantastic and contrasts nicely with the black strapping. The stark pale skin of Grin against the metallics really does stand out too.
Once again agis is working with some very big colours and it’s hard to get them right but we think he’s managed to hit the nail on the head here. You can see more of his work below and follow along with his PLOG which has been going for a few months now over on the forums on the link above.
The models from this game really do give you plenty of chances to play around with interesting techniques. One of those is the way colour is blended between the bruised and warped parts of the body next to the regular skin. It’s a technique that takes a bit of practice!
Frostgrave Warband by spamelot
Using a lot of different models from his growing collection spamelot finishes things off this week as he shows off his work on his Frostgrave warband.
While featuring a relatively modern Games Workshop High Elf/Aelf as the Wizard of the group the rest of the warband is made up using a myriad of different models he had in his collection from his youth. It’s really nice seeing the contrast between the gleaming wizard and the no-good ruffians he has hired to help him. It certainly tells a nice story.
The bases look good too, and we’re always a fan of using snow. Hopefully, we’ll see his warband grow and change as they go through the dangers of the frozen city!
