Come and join us for another delve into the Forums and 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 pieces this week...

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

Necromunda Terrain by magrathean-apprentice

We start things off with some amazing Necromunda terrain by the awesome magrathean-apprentice. Here he is breaking out the beers (some fine choices I must say) and painting them up to look like big fluid tanks down in the Underhive.

Underhive Terrain #1 by Magrathean-Apprentice

It shows off just what you can do when it comes to building terrain from, pretty much nothing. Getting the odds and sods from around the house and working them into your tabletops seems to be the right way to go, especially if you're looking for industrial terrain for an Underhive.

In addition to this work on those ace tanks, there's also his modular tiles that he has been working on. Each of these features little tiles that can be used and removed to create gaps in the board, much like the original tiles from the Underhive set.

Underhive Terrain #2 by Magrathean-Apprentice

As you can see it all looks rather awesome when miniatures get added into the mix. There is a good mix of different materials being used to bring these tabletops to life with plenty of terrain which has been cobbled together DIY-style and others which are made using MDF kits.

Underhive Terrain #3 by Magrathean-Apprentice

It's well worth delving into what magrathean-apprentice has been doing for his Necromunda tabletops as it might give you some ideas of your own. It's really nice seeing things getting pushed up to the next level and turned from 2D into full-on 3D. It really adds to the game world!

Lady Inquisitor LeTrielqe by irishsteve

Keeping with the grimdark world of Warhammer 40,000 we look at the work of irishsteve on this awesome miniature he painted up from Wargame Exclusive. Meet Lady Inquisitor LeTrielqe.

Lady Inquisitor LeTrielqe #1 by irishsteve

The painting and presentation of this miniature is, as you might have imagined from irishsteve, is top notch and I think that he's really managed to capture the essence of the grimdark. You could imagine her racing around a Hive City tracking down those that might have given themselves over to the dark gods.

Lady Inquisitor LeTrielqe #2 by irishsteve

I love that whilst this is a really gritty looking creation there are some great spots of colour mixed into it. The light on the front for example and the glow of the plasma from some of the weapons too. It's like it has been taken from the pages of the Inquisitor rulebook.

Here you can see the glow of the plasma gun on the side of the bike in more detail as well as the dirt and grime mixed into the machinery.

Lady Inquisitor LeTrielqe #3 by irishsteve

A sterling addition to the world of Warhammer 40,000 I think you'll agree. As always make sure to check out the rest of irishsteve's projects as he works on some amazing pieces.

Gloomhaven Trees by themightylo

Last but not least we have themightylo working on some awesome terrain pieces for Gloomhaven. Like with the first project we looked at this week we're seeing someone turn 2D tabletops into 3D ones.

Gloomhaven Trees #1 by TheMightyLo

They have been designed to add some more character to the game board and, as we've mentioned before, really push things up to the next level. Gloomhaven is a game of excess when it comes to the sheer amount of components so it's good to see someone taking the time to really pimp their game.

They even have removable treetops so that you can store them away nicely.

Gloomhaven Trees #2 by TheMightyLo

I love that the treetops that you can see in the background actually look like the ones from the Gloomhaven game! I think this is an awesome addition and I hope to see themightylo working on more 3D pieces for Gloomhaven in the future.
