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: Warcry Warbands + Nurgle & Age Of Sigmar Armies

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


Warcry Warband by berger15

We start off this week with a look at some awesome work by berger15 who has been tinkering away at some awesome Warcry miniatures during the latter period of Lockdown. This all came about because his little boy wanted to tinker with some miniatures and so this warband came to life.

Warcry Warband #1 by berger15

berger15 doubts that he'll get around to playing the game but I wanted to take a few moments to applaud the painting that went into these miniatures here. The full rundown of how they came together is listed over in the project above but I think this is a great way to paint up these heavily metallic-looking miniatures with a big splash of colour.

I was particularly taken by the look of the armour which has a really nice hue to it. The Iron Golems in Warcry have deep red armour and I thought this was a nice way to mix up the scheme to make it pop a little more.

The red/pink of the armour is then contrasted really nicely with the pale skin of the individual warriors and the bronze which is used throughout to draw the eye to other elements of their armour. As a whole, I really like the finish of this warband and I would be very proud to drop it onto the tabletop.

Warcry Warband #3 by berger15

As a lockdown project, this certainly ticks the boxes. It seems like it was a fun experiment and a good way to get brush to miniature once more. Even if the miniatures don't get played with I think it's a fun way to spend your time testing your skills and I think the outcome is one that I'd be proud of!

Death Guard by dustnrubble

As well as this adventure into Warcry we also saw some work by dustnrubble for what's coming down the line for Warhammer 40,000 too. This is a rather fine looking Death Guard force which features some incredibly well-painted characters and regular troops.


The painting here is top-notch and it hits all the notes of how to do the Death Guard justice. That iconic armour colour is there and is matched against some impressive painting of the additional details on the model too. I particularly like how the noxious smoke has been painted on the censures and icon that this leader has above.


I really like the work that has gone into the rank and file miniatures as well. These pestilent mutants are fabulous and I really like the nice degree of blending that you can see here from their normal skin through to those writing tentacles and appendages. It makes each miniature fit within the theme of the army but with a few nods here and there which make them stand out on the tabletop.

Death Guard #3 by dustnrubble

This is certainly an impressive looking army of Death Guard soldiers and I could see them being a lot of fun to work on in the future too, playing around with more interesting mutations and such to make unique units pop. A lot of people might have bare plastic Death Guard Chaos Space Marines lying around somewhere in a box from the last edition of Warhammer 40,000. If you do then maybe use this project as a bit of inspiration to try something new!

Age Of Sigmar Smogbelchers by KronosTheTraveler

Finally, we're looking back to the Mortal Realms and some work by KronosTheTraveler on this Cities Of Sigmar army. This themed force comes from the Greywater Fastness and is based on a city which embraces technological advancement and big guns in order to protect itself from the threat of outsiders.

Smogbelchers #1 by KronosTheTraveler

You can get a sense of the kind of characters you'll find as part of this force with the painted miniature above. There is plenty of Fantasy in the mix but this is then expanded upon with a heavy dose of Steampunk too. This means that when it comes to modelling and painting the army, there is a lot of Grimdark Sci-Fi mixed in alongside the fantastical in order to make the army fit the theme!

Smogbelchers #2 by KronosTheTraveler

A lot of the miniatures for this force have now been built as you can see here. Many of them have taken iconic weapons from The Empire army of The Old World and Cities Of Sigmar and then been given a neat twist here and there to fit in with this Steampunk theme. It's an impressive look, especially when you see some of the war machines.

Even the regular troops have a unique and interesting look to them. You can see some weapons here which look like they've been taken from Adeptus Mechanicus soldiers and it certainly works really well.

Smogbelchers #3 by KronosTheTraveler

The Cities Of Sigmar provide you with some really interesting opportunities to try something different and show off the diversity available within the Mortal Realms. This is a very impressive project and whilst we've only see one painted miniature so far I hope this will make sure that KronosTheTraveler finishes it off and shows off this army in all its glory!
