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.

Necromunda Gangs & Xenos by moonunit

The first set of miniatures we're going to look at comes from moonunit who has been delving down into some Warhammer 40,000 via Necromunda and Kill Team. I was immediately taken by how awesome this Escher gang looked!

Gangs & Kill Teams #1 by moonunit

The colours here are looking fantastic and really push that 'punk' feel to the forefront. I particularly liked the way the hair had been styled and highlighted as well as the way the yellow stood out from the models. That work on their muscles also gets a dip of the hat from me as it's very cool and in keeping with the style of artwork we saw for this gang.

As well as working on this gang moonunit has also been playing around with the painting of xenos threats too including this rather awesome Tyranid.

Gangs & Kill Teams #2 by moonunit

I have always found that you get some impressive painting from those that enjoy diving into the Tyranids as their project of choice. I would say that we're certainly seeing that here too with some really impressive painting going into getting that pink to stand out against the darker blue of the carapace. The edge highlight on the claws also really works and will pop when you're looking at the model from further away.

There are a few different projects going on over on the link above so make sure to head on over and give moonunit some encouragement!

Infinity's Yu Jing by shingen

We're sticking with the theme of Sci-Fi for a bit today as we also look at some work by shingen that we saw last week in Hobby Hangout. Here we have their Yu Jing force.

Yu Jing #1 by shingen

Once again, a fantastic paint job and I commend the choice of colours. The yellow is a really nice standout colour and works for Yu Jing as a whole. This then paired with the teal blue helps to push that 'High Sci-Fi' feel that Infinity has as well. It's nice to see some flashes of other bright colours in there too with the pinks and such which really make the individual characters stand out.

The amazing painting continues across the rest of the collection too with this fellow...

Yu Jing #2 by shingen

...and this fellow really catching my eye. Once again, the painting is awesome and the touches of bright green for their various readouts and displays are nice ways to draw the eye.

Yu Jing #3 by shingen

Infinity miniatures are incredibly cool so it's good to see people really going to town on them when it comes to the paint jobs. I think we'll all agree shingen has hit the nail on the head with these.

Warhammer Dwarf Lord by teddymademedoit

Now you have to give me a bit of a break here. I was looking through the forums and saw this Dwarf Lord, painted by teddymademedoit and I had to feature it this week.

Dwarf Lord #1 by teddymademedoit

I really like how the base has been built up for this particular character and the painting on him is also superb. He looks grumpy, old and resolute...just as you'd expect an aged Dwarf Lord to be. I always loved this miniature but could never find it!

Dwarf Lord #2 by teddymademedoit

The beard and hair have really popped for me here, and since this is a Dwarf...that's very important! I would be very proud if this Dwarf was leading my army, be it in Warhammer Fantasy or any other game.
