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.

British Provincial Force by brizzlerob

The first set of awesome miniatures we're going to be looking at comes from brizzlerob who has been doing a sterling job working on these French & Indian War figures for use in games of Sharp Practise. Check out these fantastic characters.

British Provincial Force #1 - brizzlerob

This army came together so that he could play through a big event at Bristol Independent Gaming and I think they look awesome. There's a lot of awesome stuff done to bring these characters to life, building up those bright red uniforms alongside cleverly finished facial details too.

British Provincial Force #2 - brizzlerob

You can see this continued across the mass of different units that were worked on for this force. I think this is great and whilst a big Historical force is probably beyond most of us, it's superb to see someone actually bring it to life in 28mm no less.

As well as these close-ups as part of the Project there are also some great gaming shots from a friend which you check out too so you can see the army in action.

British Provincial Force #3 - brizzlerob

Now isn't that a splendid site! I love them all ranked up like that and the colours really stand out from the rest of the tabletop. Hopefully, this will spur some people on as they try and create armies just as impressive as these.

Vampire Queen by yogiebear

Next up we're looking away from an army to a more singular project. yogiebear has been doing an awesome job on this Vampire Queen and she has finished up as quite the impressive diorama piece, stalking through a graveyard raising the dead as she goes.

Vampire Queen #1 - yogiebear

There is some serious skill on show here as they managed to bring that deep red through against her pale skin and shadowy black/blue leathers. You can just imagine the moon bathing her in the light as she steps forward, ready to tear apart the hunters who are looking to dust here.

If you're interested in seeing just how the miniature came to life yogiebear has done a fantastic job of taking us through the step by step process. Make sure to dive in and check this one out.

The Fighting Third by beaudouro

Lastly, for this week, we're going to be looking at some more Black Powder era soldiers with The Fighting Third by beaudouro. Here we can see more amazing painting in 28mm bringing these soldiers to life and really pumping folks up to get started in this era of warfare.

560th Royal American Regiment #1 - beaudouro

He has been doing a lot of research into these soldiers and working out the right scheme for them. I love their distinctive blue trousers and the big 'steam engine green' tunics that they're wearing too. Just as with the first project we looked at today these are a great example of how you can create some sterling soldiers that work as rank and file troops with a sense of individuality.

560th Royal American Regiment #2 - beaudouro

As with the first project it is well worth diving into it to come and check out more of the work going into these soldiers. I think they stand out particularly nicely and the bright bases work as a good compliment to the darker tones for their uniforms; another plus point from me!
