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.

Wargaming Trees by hazdrubal

The first project that we're going to be looking at comes from hazdrubal who has been putting together an awesome tutorial on how to make some easy trees for wargaming. The first of the tutorials he put together was all about Scouring Pad Trees.

Scouring Pad Tress #1 - hazdrubal

As well as showing the final product here above hazdrubal has also gone into detail as to how he made them including tearing up the scouring pad and using it alongside a wireframe tree.

Scouring Pad Tress #2 - hazdrubal

He goes through all of the steps that you need to consider when building up the foliage on the tree as well as working on the bark and finishing the trees as well.

Scouring Pad Tress #3 - hazdrubal

As well as all of the steps you need to go through to bring these to life hazdrubal also talks about the materials you need and effectively gives you a shopping list! Oh, and if you were wondering on some alternatives for different types of trees. Try a bog brush!

Bog Brush Tress - hazdrubal

You would not have guessed that these were bog brushes right?! These trees look awesome and as someone who is looking to add more of these to my tabletop without spending through the nose for them, it seems a good excuse to get some alternative hobby and terrain crafting done.

Guild Ball Busts by avicenna (Peter)

We're back on the busts again this week but with good reason. Avicenna (also known as Peter) has put together a project showing off the stages of painting the Guild Ball Busts from Broken Toad.

Rage & Brisket Busts by avicenna

His work thus far has covered Rage and Brisket and I think you'll agree that they have turned out very well indeed. As we talked about on the Hobby Hangout this week there's so much attention to detail worked into each of the busts and he has really brought them to life.

Rage Bust by avicenna

I know that we particularly liked the bruising and such on Rage's knuckles, the reddening nose and the bags under his eyes showing him as a man who probably does more fighting than sleeping. Brisket is just as impressive too.

Brisket Bust by avicenna

The red hair has come out amazingly well and it contrasts well with the pale skin and incredibly detailed eyes which are just staring into your soul! Match that with great leather work and what looks like non-metallic metal and you have another superb piece.

RelicBlade Wilderkin by while

Last but not least we have a look into the What Are You Painting Now forum and follow while as he paints up a range of the new Wilderkin from RelicBlade.

RelicBlade Wilderkin #1 by while

The models from this range by Metal King are fantastic and incredibly cartoony and I think that while has done a superb job bringing them to life. The stone-like appearance to the fellow above works nicely against the muted bronze/gold and the pale loincloth giving him a look of something ancient.

This tone and palette work well across the rest of the models that while has been working on when you see this Geomancer and her Stonespires. I love it when you get little terrain pieces like these to include with your miniatures.

RelicBlade Wilderkin #2 by while

Last of the miniatures from his recent escapades is the Shadowfox here.

RelicBlade Wilderkin #3 by while

Again we have a nice bit of subtle blending going on here to bring the creature to life and the darker fur contrasts nicely with the bright smoke rising from around its paws. The set looks awesome and it would be fantastic to see while painting up more from RelicBlade or indeed showing off more of his projects!
