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...

Community Spotlight: Norse Raiders, Space Raiders, & Vault Raiders

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

Viking Characters by Noyjatat

This week's first button comes from perennial favourite and friend Noyjatat who has been working on a set of characters from Hasslefree for Warren.

As we can see from the work on the stand in Lagertha he's done a fantastic job on a punchy looking paint job matching up the teal coloured shield with Rune to both the axe and sleeves of her garment, using the rule of three for spot colours to tie the miniature together she looks fantastic.

The rest of the model is very muted and has a realistic style that sets off the sculpt perfectly. I'm very jealous that Warren will be getting his hands on these, mostly because my own have been in the bags since I ordered them years ago.

Primaris Showcase by Brushstroke

Next up we move away from the frozen north and into the cold of space with seven stunning Primaris marines, showing off some quintessential Chapters combined with a striking paint job that shows just how talented he is.

Apart from the work he's put into the miniatures themselves there's a wealth of additional detail with the basing which have been scratch built and frame the models perfectly. Looking at the Blood Angel the weathering on the doors along with the buckling of the metal from where it has been busted open gives a feel of a breaching action taking place.

Brushstroke hasn't only painted existing Chapters though, I love the Faux Hammer scheme as shown here. Grey and orange is incredibly eye-catching and I wouldn't be surprised if more than a few people decided to run with the scheme themselves. The blue grey mix on the bolter casing is a nice contrast to the otherwise poppy colour scheme.

Underground Bunker by SkiptotheEnd

Lastly this week we drop into the Russia Metro in 2033 for a Zona Alfa based Dungeon crawler. This should tick most of Warren's boxes with both 3D printing and a dungeon in one handy dandy project

This project has come together by using 3D printing to make the "dungeon" itself tiled floors and detailed walls would have been enough for most people but not Skip. Oh no he then proceeded to make a range of posters that are all on the project to save and print for your own use. Then breaking out the microsol he got to work papering the walls and adding layers of graffiti until he had a lived in real world feel for his gang to explore and fight through.

1:35 kits and ebay finds were also pressed into service as statues of the great and the good, if that's the term, of Soviet Russia to both dress the interior and provide interesting scatter terrain beyond crates and barrels. The project itself contains a wealth of information on painting, weathering and creating your own dungeon which makes it perfect for anyone who fancies a post-apocalyptic dungeon crawl.
