Mini of the Week 8/15/14

Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every Friday I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you.

Nagash by Malekith on CMoN

Man oh man do I love this model. I had found a conversion of Nagash by this same painter about a year ago and that's actually what I went looking for today. Imagine my surprise when I found out that he had made a new version with lots of ghosts and glowing parts. Just everything about this model is amazing, especially when you consider what the "official" Nagash model looks like. You know that he read the Time of Legends series on him because there is no other way that he would have gotten all the details right. The bulk of this model is made from the Necrosphinx model, which is very fitting because Nagash is a Nehekharen at heart, which are the Tomb Kings. He is still very dark and gothic as he should be, but still retains plenty of little Tomb King details that ties him back to his homeland.

On this version he also added lots of freehand around the cloak's hem and some truly inspiring glow effects with the ghosts. I think my favorite added detail is the ghost skull coming out of the book, just fantastic. I don't know if GW could make a model to top this one, maybe Forge World, but I don't know. If you are wondering why his mid-section is glowing and oddly shaped it's because Nagash ate lots of Warpstone to amplify his powers and extend his life, again, he got the little details right. Did you notice the spider webs around his head? 

I know I usually only post up the one large picture but today I figured I'll show you the older version I originally found so you can see the differences.

According to his website he has actually done three versions of this and has the custom parts cast so if you want your own Nagash you can get it from him.

I am interested to see if the new official GW version that is rumored to be coming out soon will live up to this.

Be sure to check out more views of it on Cool Mini or Not and show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,
