Mini of the Week 10/24/14

Welcome back to Mini of the Week, Halloween edition, 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 on CMoN

Where would a Halloween themed month of minis be with out the Lord of Undeath himself, Nagash. I have been searching for a high quality paint job on the model on Cool Mini or Not since it was first released. While there have been some decent ones, nothing really caught my eye. Too many people were relying on an airbrush to do all of the hard work. Then I found this gem. The glow effect on this guy is just outstanding. Everything looks bright and like it could actually be glowing. Although I prefer the green tinted ghosts myself, these blue ones are great and really work well within the color pallate used here. Blue and orange are two great colors to use together (Advertisers think so to. Seriously, look at the majority of video game and movie posters from the past few years) with Nagash himself acting a neutral in all black.

I like the studio paint job, bu there is something more menacing about black armor over purple. The base is really good as well, reinforcing the undead theme with graves and occult markings. It wasn't until the second time I looked at this that I noticed that the alter thing he is floating over is actually a wounds marker, that I presume turns (Check out the fallen tombstone pointing towards it). The glowing orange/red book is a interesting choice for Nagash, since he is usually associated with cooler colors, but it works really well. This is definitely the best Nagash I have seen yet.

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

He also has made a 360 degree video of the model that I highly recommend checking out here.

Until next time,
