Recommended Warhammer Community Projects

It is always a pleasure to come across fantastic little (or not-so-little) projects from enthusiastic hobbyists. To someone who really enjoys the hobby these discoveries are like a breath of fresh air amidst the ever-present cloying smog of internet-hate and negativity, and I find they invigourate aspects of my own hobby. There must be a truism in there somewhere about passion sparking passion. Below are my pick of some quality Warhammer community projects that are well worth a look.

Warhammer Armies Project

Mathias Eliasson's Warhammer Armies Project is a testament not only to the diverse potential of the Warhammer World, but to the commitment and patience of someone who loves his hobby.

In the spirit of the White Dwarf rules expansions and 'back-of-the-book' army lists which have sadly vanished from the GW army books of late, Mathias has been churning out 8th Edition-appropriate alternative army lists for almost any thematic army list variation out there (such as Halfling armies, Kislev armies, Cult of Ulric, Dogs of War) and even several that have never been released by GW (Fimir, Cathay, Nippon).
