Purity Seal by somegeezer

We start off with something a little bit different. somegeezer has been working away on a project that is a little bit different. A cake was required and so they jumped in and designed their own Purity Seal that would adorn said cake.

Purity Seal #1 by somegeezer

There is a neat walkthrough on how this purity seal came to life over on the project. A nice bit of painting some sculpting and the use of a candle and some teabags ends up making for a rather awesome-looking seal worthy of the Space Marines.

Purity Seal #2 by somegeezer

The purity seal is only really the icing on the cake here. The actual main event is the birthday cake which has been designed to match a grimdark battlefield. Five packs of Oreos went into bringing this cake to life alongside vanilla frosting. Oh, and a Space Marine in the midst of it all. It sounds like a decision cake and I think the purity seal works really nicely on top of it.

It seems like a great birthday was had and this now has me thinking about what kind of Warhammer-themed cake I would have. It would have to be something Warhammer Fantasy Battles and Dwarf surely?


Herbie In The Wasteland by zebraoutrider

Next up, we're getting weird with zebraoutrider who has been working away on some more weird stuff for the tabletop. In this particular entry in the project, we got a look at Herbie who has taken a little bit of a journey into the wasteland.

Herbie From The Wastelands #1 by zebraoutrider

The miniatures have come from a couple of different places. Wargames Foundry helped with the crew of ladies around Herbie whilst the car itself comes from Tamiya. The base that then sets the scene is from Legend Games and features plenty of skulls.

Herbie From The Wastelands #2 by zebraoutrider

The entire thing is a wonderful little clash of aesthetics. You've got the crisp and clean look to Herbie in the middle and then the utterly terrible surroundings that Herbie has found themselves in. Still, it seems like Herbie is liking things with his new crew and I reckon that those doors might end up getting turned into something brutal and bladed.

Herbie From The Wastelands #3 by zebraoutrider

This is a wonderful little diorama/vignette piece that mashes together some fun bits and pieces. I really like the little bits of dirty and grime that have been worked into Herbie himself and I hope to see more adventures for this adorable little car. Now I need to see Herbie do some Gaslands goodness.


Soviet Tank Riders by harry711

We finish things off with a look at some World War II goodness. harry711 has been working on a bunch of World War II miniatures but I feel like I missed the Soviet Tank Riders that were added to the project system a few weeks back. I love these!

Soviet Tank Riders #1 by harry711

A big grizzled tank that is covered in rust and looks like it has been through the wars is the way to go. I love all the weathering that has gone into the tank in particular and what's nice is that you can also see lots of little "fun" things that pop out. You've got the grimy red star on the tank's turret and the numbers that are slowly getting rubbed off.

There are also lots of bits of kit that have been added here and there. You have the bags and satchels that carry all sorts of kit and then the riders themselves who are hunkering down hoping they don't get picked off by the advancing Germans.

As well as showing off the awesome tank and the riders, you can also check out some of the neat infantry miniatures that have been painted up alongside the tank. The grim and dirty look of all of these soldiers work really nicely for the theme of fighting on the Eastern Front and it would be great to see more of this Soviet collection pop up in the near future.
