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: Classic Titans, A Roaring Dragon & Recycled Terrain

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

Warlord Titan Ferrum Dux by curis

We start this week with curis working on a classic looking Warlord Titan for playing a few games of Adeptus Titanicus. Here we have the finished Warlord Titan Ferrum Dux which comes from the mighty War Griffons Titan Legion. As always with curis, this is a great little painting project.

Warlord Titan Ferrum Dux #1 by curis

The model is looking stunningly detailed and there are so many little bits and pieces across both the model and the base which draw the eye. I love the very detailed griffin design on the leg and of course all of the work going into the likes of the rocket heads and that shattered cityscape beneath its feet. Also, you've got to take your hat off to curis for the work on that banner.

Warlord Titan Ferrum Dux #4 by curis

The design here is based on the work by Wayne England which appeared in an issue of White Dwarf. As well as showing off the finished miniature, curis did also look into the building of the miniature over on his blog HERE. curis goes into detail about cleaning up and working on the basic body plus some of the weapons too.

This is a great project which all led to actual game being played as well! It's not often that you actually get to play a game after you've painted your miniatures but curis has managed to do so. Make sure to go and check out both the project from curis above plus his own personal blog.

You won't regret taking a look at the project in more detail. There are quite a few awesome miniatures in the mix here for the world of Warhammer 40,000 and also Rogue Trader, the retro classic version of the same grimdark future.

Joan Of Arc Dragon by dane001

Next up, we're looking at some work by dane001 who has put together another video tutorial showing off the painting of the Joan Of Arc Dragon. This is a pretty immense project to tackle but I think that the final results look rather menacing and awesome.

The facial details, in particular, are very awesome. When I saw this I was immediately drawn to the nice way that the red horns and scales have been mixed in alongside the dragon's dark skin. The work on getting that leering yellow eye to look menacing is rather cool indeed!

Joan Of Arc Dragon #2 by dane001

As well as working on the painting of the dragon as a whole, preparing it for use in Joan Of Arc and across maybe a few other battlefields, there is also a video tutorial on painting this model which we've included below.

The base does also look good here and helps to frame the model very nicely. Also, this shows off a great use of contrast paints across the entire model. Thanks to the ability to blend and the quick way it goes down, it turns this project from a multi-day affair to something which might just take a few hours.

Make sure to go and follow the project linked above as dane001 is also showing off how the assembly and preparation of the miniature came together too.

Recycled Terrain by capta1n5kyhawk

Finally, we're looking at the work of capta1n5kyhawk who has been showing off that you can recycle and bash together a bunch of plastic to make something awesome.

Recycled Terrain #1 by capta1n5kyhawk.jpeg

This is the finished piece of terrain which is going to be used for games like Warhammer 40,000 and Necromunda. It looks like a serious piece of kit which is no doubt gobbling garbage and turning it into something useful. Maybe it's also a vent or power element for a larger piece of terrain on the tabletop?

Recycled Terrain #2 by capta1n5kyhawk.jpeg

You'd be forgiven for thinking that this is actually a proper piece of resin or plastic terrain which has been put together by capta1n5kyhawk. Well, this is exactly how it looked when it had been boshed together using all manner of pieces of plastic from around the house.

Recycled Terrain #3 by capta1n5kyhawk

Made out of the package for an LED bulb, this has then had a few bits and bobs glued to it from the bitz box and a few bottle tops too. It's fascinating when you see what something looks like before and after it has had a lick of paint.

Make sure to check out the project which goes into more detail as to how this came together.
