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.


Azrakh The Annihilator by tuffyears

We start off this week with an awesome look at a classic and iconic Chaos Space Marine. Azrakh The Annihilator was one of the Warhammer Plus miniatures for Year Two and tuffyears has been showing off painting up the character to match the artwork by Mark Gibbons. If you're looking for a more classic depiction of a Chaos Space Marine, I don't think there are many!

Azrakh The Annihilator #1 - tuffyears

The plastic miniature is actually a lot nicer than the Games Workshop paint scheme would suggest and ticks all the boxes for a Chaos Space Marine. Endless amounts of armour trim and a very, very angry expression on his face? Check! Again, what's nice about what tuffyears is doing here is that they are looking to paint the miniature to match the art.

Azrakh The Annihilator #2 - tuffyears

This is a nice quick project from tuffyears looking at showing off bringing this miniature to life. I really like the way the miniature has come to life and the fact that it properly looks like one of the World Eater's finest. A more finished look at the miniature was also posted up and I think it looks bloody great.

Azrakh The Annihilator #3 - tuffyears

With a little bit of cleaning up, the miniature looks fantastic and I think the addition of the flowers is a really nice juxtaposition to the evil warrior stood above them. You get the sense that it might have just wandered into an idyllic Disney glen and he's about to kill a lot of things. The extra bits of detail here and there have made the miniature pop and I think this fellow is going to be awesome to see on the mantlepiece.

A few finishing touches need to be added here and there but overall, I think this is great! It would be good to see more miniatures painted up to try and match to the artwork.


Oathsworn by robojoel

Next up, we're looking to one of the biggest board games of the last few years. Literally. Oathsworn was the massive campaign board game packed full of grimdark adventure. It showcased an amazing array of monstrous miniatures to battle against as well as mighty heroes that are going up against them. robojoel has been diving in and painting up a range of miniatures from the game and doing a fine job at it.

Oathsworn #1 by robojoel

The different heroes have been painted up by robojoel and they all look fantastic. It's no small task tackling a game like Oathsworn and I think robojoel has done a sterling job on these miniatures. I am a fan of the Werebear myself but I think that the work on the Penitent Knight is worth zoning in on. A little bit of airbrush work started things off and then there was plenty of Contrast in use to make the miniature pop.

You've also got the immense Brood Mother, one of the first boss creatures that you come up against during your games.

Oathsworn #2 by robojoel

I really like the subtle colour changes that you get from using the Contrast paint. The blending is really great and it's even better that all of the texture in the fur and such has been kept by using those particular paints. I also really like all of the little details that have popped out including the eyes, teeth and that rotten flesh.

Last but not least, we also got some of the stunning terrain from Oathsworn which helps to set the scene. What a wonderful little hovel this is!

Oathsworn #3 by robojoel

All of the painting here was done to get ready for the group to play game one. It's quite a feat that all of this got finished and it looks as good as this. It will make the game feel like it's at another level entirely when everything is painted. Whilst the project is completed at this time, I can see robojoel getting dragged back into painting more of Oathsworn as the campaign continues!


Brewhouse Bash by sundancer

Last but not least, we've got my partner in this month's terrain duel that was sundancer. Inspired by a classic Games Workshop game, Brewhouse Bash, sundancer went above and beyond crafting an awesome new set up in order to play the game!

Brewhouse Bash #1 by sundancer

Originally published in White Dwarf magazine #223, this featured an Orc bar brawl where the aim was to come out on top and be the last greenskin standing at the end of the night. It isn't just the Dwarfs during their weekend at Bugman's causing chaos in a tavern!

sundancer took the original idea and then dove in and crafted the entire of the Brewhouse Brawl but in 3D rather than simply redoing the small 2D board that was originally available for the game. I think he has done an awesome job!

Brewhouse Bash #3 by sundancer

It has been good having a look at the work-in-progress elements that went into this project. It started off as just tiles then the layout was decided based on the old board. From there, work went into building stairs, a brewing room, tables, a bar and more. I think the final results speak for themselves and when it comes to actually nailing the idea of making terrain from scratch, this does that in spades.

Brewhouse Bash #2 by sundancer

I would be more than happy to play some games over this if I got the chance. It looks awesome, tells a story and properly builds on something classic with a new look and feel. I really like all of the additional pieces that have been put onto the tables and bar too, adding to the character of the place. If you want to see more, check out sundancer's video...

Congratulations to sundancer for a month of effort put into something awesome like this! I
