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: Gun Nuts, Gasland Cars & Fantastic Tabletop Terrain

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

Sgt Harker by reaperfcrew

We're kicking things off with a look at something from Warhammer 40,000, to begin with. Here we have a return to a bigger project from reaperfcrew where they have painted up this rather epic take on Sgt Harker.

Sgt Harker by reaperfcrew

This rather epic take on this character comes with a few little bits of conversion work. reaperfcrew added a rather large amount of muzzle flare into the mix as you can see in the image above, really giving it a proper comic book style. He has also worked on adding a mass of bullets to the base that have spilt forth from his heavy bolter and if you go and check out the project you'll also see them spilling forth from the other side of the weapon.

All of the models that we see from reaperfcrew have been produced in awesome detail and I love that a lot of the models are photographed in cool settings and terrain. It really helps in allowing you to appreciate how the models would look in the midst of a game.

Gaslands Cars by janus1004

Next up we're looking at some cool work and conversion awesomeness from janus1004 who has been working on some Gaslands cars. Leading the way we have a very brutal looking upgrade for a Citroen C5.

Gaslands #1 by janus1004

I always like seeing people tinker around with these toy cars and doing something different with them. This is a pretty simple addition to the mix here with guns on the top and a shovel at the front but it does make a difference. Of course, you've also go the crewman at the back who is watching out for those in hot pursuit.

Gaslands #2 by janus1004

As well as the Citroen there is also the sidekick that will be fighting alongside it as it cruises through the wasteland. Here is the second car, also presented in the update from the forums.

Gaslands #3 by janus1004

Now that is an armoured up car and it seems like it owes some allegiance to the Far East and Japan. I don't know what gave me that clue, perhaps the white and red combination? Gaslands is one of those games that I reckon we should really be playing more of on the tabletop, especially with the update!

Wargaming Terrain by amachan

Finally, we're turning our attention to a big long project from amachan who has been working away on a full gaming table worth of terrain and recently finished work on some woodland which helps to add a bit of cover to your tabletops.

Wargaming Terrain #2 by amachan

All of the different stages have been documented as part of the project which you can check out above. As well as some great looking rolling fields and rocky outcrops the way the trees have come together is also fascinating. I have been looking at this exact method for my own trees and it's good to see that it does actually produce really nice looking foliage.

Wargaming Terrain #3 by amachan

As I mentioned, the project has been going for quite a while and I think that we've maybe been overlooking this one considering the amount of content packed into it. I would highly recommend looking at the way amachan brought this awesome hill to life.

Wargaming Terrain #1 by amachan

amachan is a prolific creator and hobbyist, working on models and terrain by the bucket load! I love how the terrain, in particular, has turned out and I reckon that I will be diving in and trying out a lot of the techniques put forth as part of the project.
