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.


Deadzone by draconis

We start off this week's Community Spotlight with a look at someone who is bringing Deadzone to the masses. draconis has been showcasing their toe-dip into the world of Deadzone from Mantic Games and where they have been demoing the game and bringing it to others.

Deadzone #2 by draconis

draconis has done some great work on the various miniatures from Deadzone and specifically the older starter set which features the GCPS and the Veer-Myn. The camouflage work on the GCPS troops is bloomin' lovely and I like all of the additional detail that has been brought out of the miniatures. They work nicely when sat next to the very bright Veer-Myn.

Deadzone #3 by draconis

Brilliant stuff and it means that in the heat of gameplay, you'll be able to find the different troops nicely and easily. No Deadzone game would be complete without the terrain though and draconis has also done a sterling job on all of that. It's nice to have so much "complete" so that it showcases the game in the best light for demoing.

Deadzone #1 by draconis

I think it's brilliant to see the game like this and people ducking and diving into all of the nooks and crannies to have fun with the game. I was particularly taken by the big, bright yellow sections that have been painted up including those hazard stripes on the structure in the middle of the image above.

It is well worth diving into this project and looking into how all of the bits and bobs from Deadzone came together. It's a solid game with loads of great options for quick, Sci-Fi wargaming and could well be your entry point into the wider Warpath universe.


The Alamo by denzien

Moving on from the Sci-Fi future of Deadzone, we go back to the 1800s and see what's happening with denzien's project as they look to bring The Alamo to life on the tabletop.

The Alamo #3 by denzien

denzien has been working away on this for a little while, powering their way through a whole host of aggressors and defenders for battle around The Alamo. The game of choice for this is going to be Legends Of The Old West from Warhammer Historical and it has been great seeing all of the different miniatures coming to life for this. More impressive though, has been the terrain that is sorely needed if you're going to be playing out a game around The Alamo.

The Alamo #1 by denzien

Some classic Texan/Mexican-style buildings have been put together for this game and it immediately sets the scene for what is going to be an epic confrontation. Loads of larger terrain pieces have been put together for this project featuring standard walls and some artillery emplacements for example.

The Alamo #2 by denzien

As you can see, it looks properly awesome. This doesn't even scratch the surface when it comes to the offerings that this project has been able to bring to the tabletop. If this doesn't inspire you to dive in and start doing something Wild West-ish then I don't know what will. Additionally, I like the idea of focusing in on a particular battle and making that your project for the next few months. It could end up being a lot more manageable than diving into an entire period of history!


Terminator Miniatures by stefano1609

Last but not least, we're turning our attention to something pretty spectacular. Unfortunately, the Terminator Miniatures Game has somewhat been forgotten by the wargaming world but not in the heart of stefano1609. They have been working on re-doing the rules, creating expansions and more for use in this Sci-Fi universe.

The Terminator Miniatures Game #1 by Stefano1609

A whole host of different characters have come together that seem to have been drawn from the wider Terminator mythos alongside more well-known fodder. Their current aim is to bring Terminator Genisys back to life on the tabletop by hunting out the best miniatures and then developing expansion content that can be shared with others so they to can get their Terminator kick.

As well as showing off their selection of painted miniatures, they have also been delving into the way they intend to bring the game back to the tabletop. For one, they are hoping to get a slow grow league going for Terminator where you build up a small force and see where it takes you. You could do that with us here OnTableTop or over on the Facebook page linked over on the project.

The Terminator Miniatures Game #3 by Stefano1609

Who wouldn't be wanting to play as some Australian chaps riding around the outback, looking to hunt down and kill as many Terminators as possible? I like the mass of skulls on display which is very Terminator and solidly locks in the theme. A great endeavour!
