Community Spotlight: Scratch Building Rome, An Imperial Assault & Inquisitor Covenant

December 8, 2017 by crew

Another week has passed and the community in the Hobby & Painting forums continue to impress us with their ingenious creations!

Scorecards at the ready, let's go!

Inquisitor Covenant by irishsteve

Beginning with the amazing Inquisitor Covenant, taken by a janky iPad camera. It goes to say that great talent can't be compromised by shoddy camera work 😉

The tones and highlighting on the model, particularly the sheen of the great sword is beautifully blended. Plus while it may seem like simple freehand work on the cloak, the level of detail and precision is impeccable, how you managed to keep those lines straight between folds of cloth is astonishing.

The subtle colour changes through the base and chipping of the armour, not to mention the leather tearing from the book cover is on point!

Building Rome by hutch

Next up, hutch has been preparing well for what we assume is the new Gangs of Rome game coming soon, this beautiful terrain piece is up there, comparable with Sarissa the detail and use of poly-filla to plaster the walls.

What's equally amazing about this little slice of Rome, is that it's nicely interchangeable to suit what kind of board you wish to play on, whether it have a water feature in the center or a vegetable patch on the side for those green fingers who live nearby.

hutch has even more great pieces of terrain to show off on his personal blog, as well as our forums.

Imperial Assault by fourtytwo

Oh boy, I've been watching this forum topic all week now and  I'm continually impressed each time I visit.

What I love about these models is the lack of basing, I feel that lacking any basing really impacts the look and contrast of the paint schemes on the models. The beautifully painted high tone and contrasting colours makes them look like they've popped right out of a graphic novel or animated movie.

Shown here on the Fett armour even the chipping on the armour is not detracted from the detail or contrast of the bright colours, the small details are equally rewarded with grace and pristine.

If you fancy getting your hobby fingers out and showing off your newest paint job, terrain piece or even greatest gaming achievement, we want to know about it!
