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...

Community Spotlight: Chaotic Queens, Warrior Orcs & Furry Friends

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

The Queen Of Malifica by jayadan

Leading the way for this week we've got this bloomin' massive model from Creature Caster which has been painted up by the very talented jayadan over in the What Are You Painting Now? forum thread.

The Queen Of Malifica by jayadan

This is an absolutely massive miniature which is full of intricate little design points which would be very fun to paint up. There has been a nice mix of different tones used here with some familiar Tzeentchian colours across the board, namely purples and blues, mixed in with the gold which has been used across her armour and headdress.

I love all of the little elements which have been picked out and given its own little burst of colour. Painting massive models like this is never easy and I would imagine a lot of folks would have probably given up! I think you can see that jayadan has put a lot of effort into this one, especially when you keep peeking at the likes of the feathers on the lower half of the Queen's legs and the different elements which hang down from the back of the model.

75mm Orc by lioneldesa

Next up we're looking at another massive model. This one isn't in 28mm scale however and instead reaches the heady heights of 75mm instead! This Orc is from Hera Models and was painted up by the, again, very talented lioneldesa.

75mm Orc #1 by lioneldesa

I wanted to explore a look at this model last week but I ran out of time! But, I am going to dedicate some time to it this week as it truly is a stunning miniature with a blazing paint scheme. The green skin has been expertly coloured with lots of attention given over to highlighting the muscles on this bellowing warrior. This then contrasts really well against the more earthy tones on the leather armour and the battered metal armour.

75mm Orc #2 by lioneldesa

I really like the attention to detail which has been worked into the weapon here too. The well-worn wood and the rusted metal around the top of the axe make it look like a weapon which has seen a lot of battle. The same goes for the shield which the Orc has strapped onto his back, adorned with a handprint which might perhaps give him more luck in battle. Again, the nice elements within the wood have been brought out and it feels like a complete piece of the miniature.

Furry Warriors by baronvonuppercase

Finally, we're looking at some more work from the world of Burrows & Badgers. I have avoided talking about more models in this world for a while now but when I saw baronvonuppercase's work I had to showcase it because they look so darn cute!

Burrows & Badgers #1 by baronvonuppercase

The painting here is top-notch, showing off some really nice care and attention, especially when it comes to getting the fur looking just right. The texture which has been brought out in the painting here has made for some very cuddly looking warriors even with all the armour and weapons on display! I really like the highlighting on the shield icons and the little pattern which has been added around the base of the Rabbit's dress.

Burrows & Badgers #2 by baronvonuppercase

Once you look at the back of the models you get a whole new look at the miniatures too which again shows off nice attention to detail. The colours have been well blocked out and the little details have been picked out as well like the different elements of the rope and the many bags they are carting around. These three miniatures look like they have been off on the road, perhaps taking part in some long journey in the name of the King. I really like the nice mix of earthy tones across the models once more alongside the little spots of colour to draw the eye.
