Mini of the Week 8/22/14

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.

Vulkan by WarmasterPainting on CMoN

Well here we have it, the first really well painted Vulkan. This painter really did the model justice, much better then the neon green version Forge World had on display at events. The colors are nice and muted, yet still pop amongst all the rubble. I have to say, I have never been a fan of the revision to make the Salamanders have coal black skin with red eyes, but I think this painter has really made it work. It looks plausibly realistic and the eyes aren't over done.

I'm still not sold on the flame feather things above his head, but that's more of a sculpting issue than painting. I am glad that he painted the wounded marines on the base as Death Guard since that shows attention to detail. During Isstvan the Salamanders primarily fought the Death Guard. The one thing I wish he had done diffenetly is to position Vulkan's head so he is making eye contact with the marine on the ground. It would just convey so much more emotion, but that's really just nitpicking. 

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,

Tyler M.
