Mini of the Week 1-2-15

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.

Dark Elf Warlock by Lan Studio

As you may have noticed from past entries I really like subtly converted models. This is definitely one of those. I could very well see this being an official GW Dark Elf Warlock model. The paint job reminds me of the 'Eavy Metal style too. Everything is very smooth and crisp, it doesn't hurt that it uses the studio color scheme either. The skin has hints of purple in it too which ties it into the cloth on the model and gives the model an overall color tint.

The OSL (object source lighting) on his arm from the flames is top notch and subtle enough that it doesn't overwhelm the rest of the model. I would be interested in finding out what parts were used to make this model, especially the torso and arms. The staff is also very distinctive and pretty much screams Dark Elf. The only thing that seems a little off to me is the choice of head. It looks good enough, but something about the mohawk and bandana just seems a little odd to me. There's not much more I can say about this model, it's just very nicely done and a great conversion.

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

Don't forget that there is now a dedicated section on the Mengel Miniatures Forum for the Mini of the Week where you can discuss the latest model or suggest one of your own. There is an event coming up next week that any painter will be highly interested in with opportunities for awesome prizes and other cool rewards. You'll have to be a member of the forum to participate though. It's free to sign up and only take a few seconds, so why not join today?

Until next time,

Tyler M.

What do you think of this model? If you have any models or have seen any around the web that you feel deserve to be the Mini of the Week feel free to send them to me at with the title "Mini of the Week" and a brief description of how you painted it or a link to where you found it. There is also a dedicated board on the Mengel Miniatures Forum for Mini of the Week where you can discuss past entries or post of minis you think are deserving of the title.
