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.

Mythic Battles Titans by wolf320f

We're looking at some massive miniatures to begin this week as wolf320f works on his fantastic Titans from Mythic Battles: Pantheon.

Mythic Games Titan #1 - wolf320f ALT

Both of these show off some awesome skill as each comes to life. I love the work that went into Gaia above, really giving her that deadly woodland sprite feel but times about a million! The pale flesh works really nice alongside the darker dress and the gnarled woodwork. Add to that the ground erupting around her and you've got a dynamic model with a neat paint scheme.

Next up we have Kronos who looks as brutal as you might have guessed. Once again the elemental aspect of the character has come to the fore here and I love how the fire has been painted here.

Mythic Games Titan #2 - wolf320f ALT

The contrast again is the defining bit of this paint job as you see the billowing smoke wrapping around him. I would potentially have added a bit more darkness into the mix there to build on Kronos' character but otherwise, I think this is great.

Even the basing isn't out of sorts as I like that it looks like he has burnt the ground as he was summoned into this plane of existence. Some really colourful characters; massive ones at that!

Zarbag's Gitz by piers

Next up we have some equally colourful miniatures from piers as he paints up Zarbag's Gitz for use in Warhammer Underworlds. Here we have the awesome Grot leader looking absolutely stunning.

The purple robes contrasted with the bright and lurid green skin works really well and the detail work then leads to this character coming to life. The glowing little bug trapped within the cage adds another layer of warmth to the miniature, planting him in an over-the-top world.

You can see this continued across more of the miniatures from the set.

Zarbag's Gitz #1 by piers

I love those bright red schemes for the Squigs. The Grots/Goblins from Age Of Sigmar in general really do blow the lid off 'reality' and I think these paint schemes have fed into that. I love the additional work piers put into bringing the bases to life as well, highlighting all the things from those sculpted bases like the pool or purple goop.

Burrows & Badgers Heroes by warhammergrimace

Last but not least (yes, we're going there) we have warhammergrimace who has been working on his first Burrows & Badgers miniatures.

Burrows & Badgers Heroes - warhammergrimace

Some great work has gone into these pieces and it shows just how differently you can approach them as figures. On the left side, you have the Hare Knight from Oathsworn Miniatures and then on the right a Hare Archer from Dark Sword Miniatures. Despite the different ranges both match up really nicely and work well within the world.

I loved the tough metallics that were added to the Hare Knight giving him a battle-hardened look. It matches well with his eye-patch and hefty, well-used sword. By contrast, you could imagine the Hare Archer being a ranger who dwells in the woods, potentially as an outlaw. The subtle green blend on the cloak works really well and the colours as a whole match well against the flowers on the base which is a nice touch.
