    Taking a cue from the Cool minis from around the world thread on Ozpainters, I figured we could do with a repository of the most awesome or interesting models we see on our meanderings about the web. If nothing else, they might supply inspiration or a good starting point for research.

    To kick off, something I saw on the Mig forums last night:

    And a personal favourite, Romantik Duel from Rusto:

    Post away if you spot anything that might be of interest to the community!

    Do we include WIPs (say of converted models)? I just wonder as I often go on ammobunker and warseer and projects tend to have the odd exciting photo hidden in them but rarely finished.

    @Sparks: Yeah, anything that inspires you - which reminds me:

    that 28mm slick devlin is immense, its mental how it appears to be balanced purely on his fingers.

    I know it's an oldie, but Vic Lamb's 'Rescue of Sister Joan' is still one of the very greatest dioramas I've seen.

    In fact, all her work is stunning really - in my top 3 best painters ever.

    Ms Lambs piece still really kicks ass... one of the first scenes like that which I found really emotive. I think it shows that you dont have to resculpt EVERYTHING to put together a good story telling diorama. Still an inspirational piece for me.

    Here are some of mine :D (PS love this thread too, they have one on TB) Lets just keep it to pictures and no waffle ;)

    Tanka Wanka!! Love this interpretation. The apples and barrel are wonderful - I need to get more variation in my colours when painting objects like these

    That is stunning paintwork, especially on the wings. Although the pose looks like he's dancing badly rather than anything warlike...

    Yeah, I've always found Victor's stuff to be too heavy on the freehand. Still, he does it bloody well.
