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.

Knights Of The Round Table by hazyboy75

We start off with some awesomeness from hazyboy75. They have recently got their hands on the Knights Of The Round Table by Temple Of The West. This set of metal miniatures are great for those looking to recreate the Arthurian quests of his valiant (and not-so-valiant) knights throughout the kingdom of Albion and beyond.

Knights Of The Round Table #1 by hazyboy75

Based on the idea by Daniel Mersey, these miniatures have been designed for you to use in your awesome Fantasy adventures and with that in mind, the paint schemes have that really nice classic Fantasy vibe to them. I really love the colour choices that hazyboy75 has worked with and in particular, I really loved the basing that we got to see amongst this collection!

Knights Of The Round Table #2 by hazyboy75

What's also nice about the miniatures that hazyboy75 has painted for this collection is that they are all pretty close to the artwork that you see on the character cards behind them. And, as is the way with hazyboy75's work, all of the different steps have been documented throughout the process. I think it's an awesome project and it's still not done!

Knights Of The Round Table #3 by hazyboy75

What's neat about this project is that it's not only a great set of triumphs but also some lessons on just starting again. Gog and/or Magog didn't quite turn out how they wanted and so it was into the Dettol with that particular fellow so that everything could be started from scratch. Don't be afraid to make a hard decision like that and go back to the starting block, especially if you're not going to be happy with the finished article.

I can't wait to see what else comes of this project as the rest of the boxed set gets painted up. Considering that hazyboy75 had said that this will be their first time messing with metal in a while, I think the finished results look great.


Ritual 28 by TinyHeadbones

Next up, we're diving into something a little bit different. TinyHeadbones was inspired by a non-combat game from the folks at 28 Mag called Ritual 28. Ritual 28 is a game where you're not fighting each other but instead trying to complete a ritual before the other side.

Ritual 28 #1 by TinyHeadbones

With that in mind, TinyHeadbones got stuck into their collection and started thinking about miniatures that would work for this kind of game. On one side, we have the "wounded" and a Bard from Ragnarok Miniatures and Footsore Miniatures. These folks like they are calling forth some entity from the beyond and bowing down in prayer. It's a nifty way of getting miniatures into the game without having to do much kitbashing and converting.

For the other side of things, TinyHeadbones went to the work of Andrew May and Ana Polanšćak as part of a recent Kickstarter. These Folk Horror creations look awesome and seem to fit in perfectly with a game about ritual summoning.

Ritual 28 #2 by TinyHeadbones

A novel idea and one that got TinyHeadbones going off in a different direction when it came to their hobby. As well as that, it also meant that the young ones could get involved and help with the building of a simple board for the game to be played on.

Ritual 28 #3 by TinyHeadbones

It's always nice to see the younger generations getting introduced to some hobby goodness and doing this kind of terrain work is a great place to start. I hope that this means that we're going to see more terrain work done by tiny hands in future projects and updates.


Squats by thebelon

Last but not least, we're turning to the work of thebelon who is working on some great miniatures for some Squat-based fun on the tabletop. thebelon got their hands on some nice miniatures from the likes of Macrocosm Miniatures, Gundrun Studio and Uscarl Miniatures. These have all come together to produce a fun collection of Sci-Fi miners!

Squats #1 by thebelon

I can hear the chant of "Rock and Stone" already. I think the work on all of these miniatures is great and its fun seeing the bright and poppy colours that have been used throughout. On the one hand, you have the quite utilitarian uniforms that are then given a good dose of awesome with the application of bright green. Throw in the bright blue and the yellow and suddenly the whole lot pops.

Squats #2 by thebelon

I also absolutely love the basing for this little force. It's like they have found themselves on some ancient world that once belonged to a beautiful and potentially "Elven" faction. Despite that, they don't care for the architecture and are simply driving and running around on those shattered ruins making them all the more ruined in the process.

Squats #3 by thebelon

The entire section of this project has an awesome vibe to it and feels very Oldhammer whilst also throwing in some fun, new miniatures for good measure. It all works very well. I particularly like that massive walker/warsuit with its little clear cockpit where a Squat is peeking out. A solid force that gets be excited about all things beardy.
