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.


The Doomed Warband by k3rmit

We start this week's Community Spotlight with a look at some epic miniatures from k3rmit who has been painting up a warband of the Inheritors for use in Osprey Games' The Doomed.

The Doomed Warband #1 by k3rmit

The nice thing about The Doomed is that it is a game that very much asks you to dive into your bitz box and start building stuff. k3rmit has done just that with this warband of Inheritors, smashing together all sorts of Gothic bits and pieces from different games to really ram home that epic Sci-Fantasy vibe that you get with The Doomed. I loved seeing each of the miniatures come together and it got even more impressive once we saw the final, painted figures!

It gets all the more impressive when you see all of the added details that k3rmit has added into the mix. I really like all of the dirt and grime and the splatters of blood that adorn the various weapons. It works really well and helps nail the aesthetic of this warband the world that they live in.

I would recommend diving into the full project to see the rest of the miniatures from this collection. There are some really awesome miniatures within this set, some of which I've not shown off in detail here. I really like the fellow with the flaming censer for example and the scribe who is probably finding themselves particularly out of their depth.


Ruins by ResurrectedDM

Next up, we move on to some excellent terrain that was crafted by ResurrectedDM over the last few weeks. The kits came from Printable Scenery and they are being painted up to be used in some games of Rangers Of Shadow Deep. I am always a fan of dilapidated ruins and I think that ResurrectedDM has done a sterling job bringing these to life.

Ruins #1 by ResurrectedDM

There can be a trap that you fall into when it comes to painting ruins. As you speed through painting them, you could end up making them look more uniform than you think. So, it was nice to see the work that ResurrectedDM has done to make all of these buildings feel like they have their own story before they fell into disrepair.

Ruins #2 by ResurrectedDM

I really like the age that ResurrectedDM has built into the terrain here. The overgrown nature of the stonework looks really awesome and I like the little bits of vegetation that has started to take root in the most likely rotting wood. That slight hue of yellowy green to the buildings as a whole also works to nail that vibe of a town or village that fell into ruin many, many years ago.

Ruins #3 by ResurrectedDM

I really like this collection of terrain and I think it's going to be awesome for some games of Rangers Of Shadow Deep as plucky adventurers explore them. A great use of bright colours draw the eye and help break up the overgrown nature of the buildings whilst also not feeling like they choices are out of place.


Mordheim In The Cursed City by Redscope

Last but not least, we're looking at more ruins but in a different vibe. I've been a big fan of the background and idea behind The Cursed City of Ulfenkarn since it was announced for the ill-fated Warhammer Quest game. It had very hefty Mordheim vibes and seemed like a great place to act as a playground for your Age Of Sigmar antics. So, when I saw that redscope was looking to build the different districts of the city, I had to take a closer look.

The Cursed City #1 by Redscope

Whilst I think that the actual Cursed City was a wasted opportunity from a lore standpoint, it's great to see that redscope has been showing off what you can do with the nuggets of lore that Games Workshop littered throughout the rulebook. For example, here we have a portion of the city that has been finished off recently, The Vharngate.

The Cursed City #2 by Redscope

It has been neat seeing the mix of different terrain that has been brought together in order to make this portion of the city. There are plenty of Age Of Sigmar bits in the mix but you've also got bits and pieces from elsewhere which is used to make the terrain more interactive and provide scatter.

The Cursed City #3 by Redscope

It's neat seeing this focus on bringing a particular vision to life and using what you can to make that happen. With that in mind, I hope that this turns into an excellent Mordheim and/or Age Of Sigmar board and helps bring together some fun scenarios as the adventure moves through these haunted streets. I know that the project has reached its end at the moment but there is ample opportunity for more to be done and I'd love to see some of the more obscure regions of the city created on the tabletop from the likes of the book.
