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.

Great Red by pafetikbazerka

We start off with a little bit of history here with Great Red painted by pafetikbazerka. This is a model by Ral Partha that you might remember from a number of different Dungeons & Dragons publications!

Old Red #1 by pafetikbazerka

Considering this is a miniature which is almost entirely red I think that pafetikbazerka has done a sterling job on the miniature and really brought to life all of those nuances in the sculpt. You can even see the fire starting to well up from inside the dragon as he descends on his prey.

Old Red #2 by pafetikbazerka

This is a truly superb job on this model which really brings the artwork from the period to life and shows off a great take on the classic Red Dragon. I particularly like the blending between the red scales and the pale white horns, each touched up with a little bit of red themselves. The glowing blue eyes also help to catch your attention and provide a nice point of difference across the sculpt.

Fantasy Characters by horati0nosebl0wer

Next we're turning our attention to a trio of ladies that might well be hunting down this Dragon.

Fantasy Characters #1 by horati0nosebl0wer

These three characters have been painted for tabletop gaming and they look fantastic. I was immediately drawn to the bronze on the shield for the miniature in the centre and the black dress for the character on the left. Each of them has been given a general main colour and then been offset by some nice colour-matching to help compliment the piece.

Fantasy Characters #2 by horati0nosebl0wer

The amazing yellow/green cloak of the middle figure here again stood out to me as well as the green cloak on the archer. They are very punchy and certainly highlight that these are characters on the tabletop rather than just your standard rank and file characters.

Whilst there has been mention of struggling to get their head around photography for these miniatures I think that have been presented wonderfully. You can find more tips however HERE in a Project that Lance put together!

HeroForge Badlands Characters by nickw1970

After playing around with HerForge, nickw1970 from the community wanted to bring some of the characters from Into The Badlands to life. So, he set about designing the characters as part of this Project...

HeroForge Badlands #1 by nickw1970

...and was even able to get his brother to print off the models for him using his machine. HeroForge doesn't just print the models for you themselves but also offers the STL Files so that you can work from home if you wish.

HeroForge Badlands #2 by nickw1970

The cool thing about this project that had my attention and made it deserve a Golden Button was the depth that has gone into describing the different steps of this process and showing off just what home 3D printing can be like. As well as showing off the successes, the failures were also shown as well as the cleaning that has to go into some of the models.

HeroForge Badlands #3 by nickw1970

You can check out the project in more detail and learn about the different steps to the process as well as the models now that they have been undercoated.

HeroForge Badlands #4 by nickw1970

Being someone who is very interested in getting my hands on these HeroForge sculpts I was interested to see how the process worked. Whilst I would love to do some home printing now I think I might leave it to HerForge to print mine!

There is a lot of work involved here and whilst the costs are down I'm not sure it's for my technologically addled mind.
