Community Spotlight: Epic 40k, DUST Walkers & Praetorian Imperial Guard

August 3, 2018 by brennon

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.

Epic 40K by rastamann

We're kicking off this week with something that got me really excited. I love seeing alternative ways of playing in game universes and of course Epic was one of those for Warhammer 40,000. So, when rastamann finished off some amazing Epic vehicles I had to show them off.

Epic 40k #1 by rastamann

Each of the models looks fantastic and he has put so much time and effort into these. You can see insignia, patterning and much more across the different models and they have a great general paint scheme to them which makes them stand out on the tabletop. A nice way to own Baneblades and not have them take over your house!

He also got to painting some of the Manticores from his collection.

Epic 40k #2 by rastamann

I think you'll agree that once again, rastamann has done a superb job on these models and really brought them to life. It's the small details which make projects like this and I think I'd be very happy to be facing off against this on the tabletop...even if it was pummelling me into a pulp!

I hope that we get to see more of the Epic range from rastamann in the forums and projects!

DUST 1947 Walker by blipvertus

blipvertus takes us down into the depths of Pulp Weird World War gaming with his take on a DUST 1947 Walker for the Axis.

DUST Walker #3 by blipvertus

He has painted the walker to work within his 22nnd Luftwaffe Field Division force in the game and gone to great lengths to add some nice details to the piece.

DUST Walker #1 by blipvertus

The camouflage pattern is looking subtle but fantastic and matches very well against the metallics of the piece overall. I like that it really focuses in on that 'comic book' feel for the game world and the transfers have been left looking poppy like that.

DUST Walker #2 by blipvertus

I think that all of us approve of the weathering for the model too which does give it a nice realistic edge. The little bit of dirt and grime around the rivets is also well worth noting as it is a little detail that could have easily been ignored.

Some great work for the world of DUST.

Praetorian Imperial Guard by denzien

Last but not least we turn our attention to this project from denzien who has been taking some pointers from John it seems and working on this awesome Praetorian Imperial Guard army for use in Warhammer 40,000.

Praetorian Imperial Guard #1 by denzien

It's great to see this old school arm of the Imperial Guard making their way back to the tabletop in this fashion. All of the infantry look awesome and I love the extra conversion work to give them some very unique Rough Riders as well!

Praetorian Imperial Guard #2 by denzien

It is well worth heading over to the project and taking a better look at what denzien has been working on and ask for some pointers and such as to how you could bring something like this to life. It is very much a way to 'game in the gaps' of Warhammer 40,000.

Praetorian Imperial Guard #3 by denzien

The models all look awesome when they are formed up in square like this and give you a great image of them in the midst of battle. I wonder how long they'd hold out against a Tyranid swarm like that?

Maybe just avoid opponents with massive blast templates...
