Orc Watchtowers by Lovecraft2020

We start off 2022 with some fantastic terrain from lovecraft2020. Scratchbuilding terrain is a great way to make awesome and bespoke tabletops and they have been doing a great job on some Orc Watchtowers.

Orc Watchtowers #1 by Lovecraft2020

The projects break down exactly how these have come to be. As you might have guessed, they used plenty of chopped up toothpicks, lolly sticks and more in order to get the look that you see here. The addition of some extra elements then brings home the feel of the Orcs!

Orc Watchtowers #2 by Lovecraft2020

Two towers have been designed so far by lovecraft2020 that look like a perfect fit for a classic Oldhammer battlefield. I like that some of them (like the tower above) has two levels to it, offering up different places to pop your archers and other defenders.

Orc Watchtowers #3 by Lovecraft2020

As you can see, they are also pretty darn big too! They look great when lined up against the various miniatures from their collection and suit the palisade walls and such too. There are also a couple of additional projects by lovecraft2020 worth looking at where they are making ponds and more.

World War I French by denzien

Next up, we're looking at some historical goodness from denzien. They are also a font of awesomeness when it comes to the work they do and they have recently been going over the top with some World War I French.

Blood & Valor #1 by denzien

They have been doing some great work bringing these boys in blue to life. I like that there is a good bit of dirt and grime on these models too, showing off the time that they have been spending down in the muddy trenches of Europe.

There are some nicely detailed images of the different miniatures in the project and a walk through of the reasonings behind picking certain uniforms and such. It's good to see the research of the period.

Blood & Valor #2 by denzien

As well as the standard French infantry, we've also been seeing some work on the Senegalese as well. It's great to see this side of World War I and these soldiers that you might not have been aware of.

Blood & Valor #3 by denzien

Again, a great colour scheme that really shows off the different uniforms. I think the washes and such here have really brought out the depth and detail of these miniatures. They should look great when dropped onto the battlefield to scrap against advancing enemies.

Christmas Truce Diorama by fleboy

Last but not least, we're taking a look at something equally World War I themed. Here we have a little display from fleboy where they showed off some Christmas spirit. It's neat to see these miniatures in a bit of an alternative nativity.

Christmas Truce Diorama #1 by fleboy

It might not be Christmas anymore but I reckon there is still good reason to dive in and show off the work on this. I think it looks great and gets across a bit of Christmas cheer as well as a moment of comradeship on the battlefield of World War I.

Christmas Truce Diorama #2 by fleboy

It helps that the diorama is painted up (and finished) exceptionally well. It's a great snapshot of a moment in time that would be great as a display piece if you were an avid World War I collector. Have you ever attempted to paint up a display like this?
