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.


O-12 by rayzyr

We start off this week with a stint in the world of Corvus Belli's Infinity. rayzyr has been tinkering with the O-12 and painting them up for use in their games.

O-12 #1 by rayzryr

The O-12 are a pretty awesome faction in Infinity and I always like seeing how people bring them to life with their paint schemes. I really like the work here where the bright blue works really nicely alongside the shock of yellow that has been worked into particular elements of the miniature.

O-12 #2 by rayzryr

The scheme as a whole feels like it works really nicely and pops because of the almost comic book feel to it. I also think that the basing here sets the miniatures off very well. It's always tough trying to build up a more urban-esque environment, or at least one that would work across both wild and city locations. The red earth here is very good and it has since been supplemented by some neat bits of foliage.

O-12 #3 by rayzryr

A solid set of miniatures that have got me very interested in picking up some O-12 for myself. I always like seeing Infinity getting worked on as the miniatures are so evocative. Keep an eye on the project above for hopefully lots more content in the near future! One of the neat ideas about it is that the miniatures can be used for Infinity but also a mix of different Sci-Fi games too.


Blood & Plunder by jamescutts

Next up, we turn our attention to the work of jamescutts who has been tinkering around with Blood & Plunder. The neat thing about this though is that the miniatures are showcased in video form rather than just with images!

Over on Shakos And Sprues, these videos offer up a great look at the schemes for a variety of different units that jamescutts has been working on.

You get a nice close-up look at the different miniatures for a couple of different units, not just the ones that you see here. Additionally, you can go and check out more videos covering periods away from Blood & Plunder including that of the Napoleonic. Also, there are a couple of event breakdowns too!

It's always nice seeing a different medium for showcasing miniatures and I reckon it is well worth checking out the YouTube channel linked above so you can keep an eye on what comes up next!


Ottoman Turks by SirHumphreyRtd

Last but not least, we're also looking at a rather immense-looking set of Ottoman Turks. All sorts of interesting characters, units and more have come to life thanks to the work of SirHumphreyRtd.

Ottoman Turks #1 by SirHumphreyRtd

What's good about this particular project is that there is a good mix of why and what when it comes to reading through it. You'll get to learn a bit about the history of these armies, why certain units were picked and who they all are. There are loads of miniatures to get a peek at and schemes to consider using on your own troops.

Ottoman Turks #2 by SirHumphreyRtd

The miniatures themselves are in 28mm scale and it's interesting to see that SirHumphreyRtd had already worked on a 15mm version of this and now the big focus is on recreating it all on a much larger scale.

Ottoman Turks #3 by SirHumphreyRtd

This really doesn't do the army and indeed the showcase as a whole justice. There is much more for you to dive into including copies of the various lists that apply to these different armies if you would like to recreate them yourself. Ottomans, Poles and Imperial Austrian are all in the mix so there is something for everyone!
