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.

Pencocwocor by lobstermooch

lobstermooch has been painting up a rather strange creature that I had never heard of before. Here we have the Pencocwocor from Darklands painted up in stunning quality.

Pencocowocor #2 by lobstermooch

This creature was his first step into the world of wet blending on the skin and scales and I think that it has come out very well indeed. I think the blue and the red is a good mix and the little highlights on the ridges really help push the model to the next level.

Pencocwocor #1 by lobstermooch

This has come out very well indeed and the paint scheme as a whole really does push me towards the idea of using it in Age Of Sigmar. The colour choices and such make me think of a creature of High Fantasy rather than one of a grimdark and gritty one that we're used to seeing.

Paul Bonner Troll by warlockmini

warlockminis has been working away on an awesome Troll which we showed off on the Hobby Hangout a couple of weeks ago. Take a look at the Paul Bonner style creature with a new twist to it.

Black Plague Troll #1 by warlockminis

A lot of effort has gone into the skin showing off a ruddy-nosed creature which has no doubt been on the hooch as much as he has the bashin' and smashin'.

In particular, the work on the shield on the back of the model has come across very nicely, with the overall scheme being warm and very artistic...even inviting!

Black Plague Troll #2 by warlockminis

I particularly like the effort that has gone into some additional features on the troll. For example, the rug that you can see on top of the model was completely hand sculpted and covers up the very grisly heads that the basket used to contain.

I think it lends the character a much more mercenary nature and flows with the idea of him being a travelling troll just minding his own business.

Orc Boar Riders by tanath

Last but not least we're sticking with the idea of old school creatures as we check out some Orc Boar Riders by tanath.

Each of these models has been painted with a level of modern expertise but also in keeping with the old school paint schemes we're used to seeing on Oldhammer models. For example, you can see the quirky way the shields have come together, with blazing yellows and reds matched against the pale skin of the Orcs.

I am a big fan of these kinds of paint schemes and that's why this has popped up as a favourite for me this week. Hopefully, we see more of this army over the coming week?
