Bot War by rum8le

We start with some awesomeness from the world of Sci-Fi. Here we have rum8le who has been painting up these Bot War miniatures for a while! Here you can see how they all came together as a full faction looking very impressive indeed!

Bot War #1 by rum8le NOV

This collection is based around the Cult Of The Destroyer and it all starts with the Destroyer here! An absolutely amazing looking miniature where the yellow blends really nicely with the natural rock textures and the spot colours of pinky purple.

Bot War #2 by rum8le NOV

Additionally, this miniature shows off an immense amount of time and effort given over to weathering. I really like all the dirt and grime that has been worked into the miniature from top to bottom. It all makes sense too considering the theming of this particular miniature and its faction.

As you can see, the miniature then comes together nicely alongside the rest of the Cult Of The Destroyer. This fellow looks ace when next to the rest of the miniatures from the set.

Bot War #3 by rum8le NOV

The same level of quality follows through to the smaller miniatures in the collection. Again, those flashes of pink throughout the collection help to break up the yellow and the natural tones. I think it also works that the rocky elements of the miniatures match the basing. It looks like it has drawn it out of the ground to become part of the miniature. Ace.

Flintloque In The Silver Bayonet by stompie51

Next up, we move to some miniatures that have been reused from an older game for a brand new one. Alternative Armies' Flintloque miniatures have been repurposed by stompie51 for use with The Silver Bayonet.

The Silver Bayonet #1 by Stompie51

These British Orcs have been given a new lick of paint after twenty-five years of service and now find themselves included as part of a weird and wonderful collection for The Silver Bayonet. I think that regardless of the years, these old school miniatures are still packed with character and worth picking up.

The Silver Bayonet #2 by Stompie51

This is a neat way to look at collecting miniatures for The Silver Bayonet. I like the idea that you could play around with them as fantastical and monstrous options for your gang of hunters. I like the idea that the monsters have become the ones heading out into the mist and shadows in order to take down some bigger, badder foes.

It is a cool idea and it was neat to see some more of the videos from stompie51 over on the project itself.

Unfathomable by tuffyears

Finally, we also have some monsters from tuffyears for the epic Unfathomable by Fantasy Flight Games. I am all for people painting up the various components of their board games to make it look all the more impressive. A job for Contrast I say!

Unfathomable #1 by tuffyears

These miniatures have come together exceedingly well and I absolutely love the final look. The green is slick and horrible across their weird, uncanny skin and it flows well into the nasty teeth, grasping claws and beady red eyes.

Unfathomable #2 by tuffyears

This has come together to create a nice set of monstrous miniatures that would look fantastic when put together on the tabletop alongside the rest of the board game. I think the monstrous villains that then accompany these bigger creatures also look great too.

Unfathomable #3 by tuffyears

I really think that Contrast and washes work exceptionally well on these kinds of organic miniatures. It also creates a fascinating effect on the bases themselves which then look like a swirling oceanic void!
