Come and join us for another delve into the Projects to find the best of the best from the last week or so. We're going to be getting stuck into lots of great looking miniature wargaming painting and hobbying this week...


...make sure to always let us know what YOU have been working on and share it across the site.


Sisters Of Battle by eternitygate

We start off this week's Community Spotlight with some pretty amazing miniatures from eternitygate for their Warhammer 40,000 army and the Adepta Sororitas/Sisters Of Battle. A while back we saw their painting progress on Sister Superior Amalia Novena but things have got even more impressive since then!

It seems like eternitygate might have got their hands on the awesome Sisters Of Battle box that was released back at the end of last year and has been spending the following months working on the miniatures from that set. All of the characters have come together really nicely and the troops are also looking fantastic.

The standard Adepta Sororitas paintscheme has come out really nicely indeed and there is a good contrast between the bright blood red and the darker armour of these holy warriors. The white has also been done superbly well and gives you a spotlight on specific elements of the miniature, drawing the eye to the detailed parts.

I also have to give kudos to eternitygate for working away on the photography on this project too. There is a lot of care paid to how this all looks composition-wise, especially when using backgrounds and such to really make the miniatures pop.

There is a lot more for you to check out in this project up on the link above. As well as showing off finished miniatures, eternitygate has also been sharing the work-in-progress miniatures, basing methods and more throughout. If you want a good guide to painting the Adepta Sororitas then this is worth following.

Next up, we're moving from the grimdark future and instead looking back at World War II. Grandad's Army is the project from m30wm1x which presents a fully painted British Army from around the time of D-Day.

This 15mm army looks fantastic and has been finished off really nicely indeed. I love the attention to detail on their uniforms, picking out the different elements and getting their facial details to pop. The basing is also something which I think need a tip of the hat, especially with the poppies littered about as a little call back to the commemorative element of armies like this.

We always need more infantry in games like Flames Of War and m30wm1x has delivered on that front with some nicely finished troops who are going to be doing the hard work on the battlefield.

British Army #2 by m30wm1x.jpg

There is a set finished off with red flowers and then another with yellow so that they can tell the difference between the two units on the battlefield presumably.

This all comes together to form a fantastic looking army which is going to be fun seeing rolling around on the battlefield. You can go and check out the tanks in more detail over on the project link above!

As a neat representation of the 50th Division's DLI, this is a great nod to this real-world army. Finishing off a Flames Of War army to a specific theme seems like a good way to go and this is a fine example of that.


Burrows & Badgers by robert

Finally for this week, we turn our attention to a new project by robert who is a man after my own heart! Here we have just some of the amazingly well-painted miniatures from his Burrows & Badgers collection which have been coming together over the last week or so.

Burrows & Badgers #1 by robert.jpg

I won't lie, this has been getting me very interested in buying more miniatures (there are still some left to paint if you believe it!). Getting back to the painting though, this is an astoundingly good collection from robert which shows off just how fun these miniatures are to paint. There is a nice mix of traditional earthy colours for you to work with plus something a bit fancier!

The amount of detail that has gone into these models has to be commended. I love the work here on the image below for example where robert has managed to get all the stripes looking nice and flashy and has painted the slashes in the fabric properly too.

I wanted to finish this preview of robert's work with this fellow from the exotic animals section of the Burrows & Badgers rules.

Again, this is an awesome paint job which matches the realistic tones on the skin and natural armour with the brighter and poppier elements that make up his arms and armour. This is one miniature which I don't have in my collection and I'm very tempted to pick him up and give it a go myself!
