Mini of the Week 2-27-15

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.

Old School by Nakatan on Cool Mini or Not

This is one smoothly painted mini. When you think of the top tier stuff I'm sure something like this comes to mind. Everything is painted to the highest degree possible. I'm usually not huge on non-metallic metals, sometimes it seems like an excuse to show off, but on this model it's amazing! That steel is great, you can't even really tell it's NMM until you look really closely. It's not often you see something done with a blue steel effect, so that makes it even more impressive. 

The face is terrific as well, it really looks weathered and old. The skin is a little red, but I guess it could be from sunburn or something like that. The gradient on the mustache is very nice as well and adds some interest into a part of the model that could be a little boring. Everything is just really, really well done. I don't know what more I can really say about it. The display base is a little happier then we are used to seeing in Warhammer, but I guess there must be fields and flowers in that world. It's actually kind of nice to see something not surrounded by skulls and destruction. 

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,

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.
