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.

Ferrus Manus & Fulgrim by Enrique Velasco on Putty and Paint

What's better then one Primarch? Well, two of course! I always love when I see a diorama with Ferrus and Fulgrim. It's such an iconic scene from the Heresy and Forge World did such a good job of sculpting this pair and making sure they work well together. This hobbyist went the extra mile though and ditched their own personal bases to put them together on one display base. It looks like it uses elements from their own bases as well as maybe some generic rocks. Bringing them closer together like this really helps reinforce the idea that they are actually fighting. 

The painting on this is just amazing as well. I love how dramatic the transitions in the colors are, like Fulgrim's purple for example. The non-metallic metal is very well done as well and is subtle enough to not overwhelm the rest of the model, which is something I have seen happen with this technique. The transition between the metal and flesh on Ferrus' arms are really interesting too. It almost looks like the metal is writhing across his arms instead of the smoother transition we are use to seeing. I don't know what more I can really say about this, it's pretty flawless and a great scene. I highly encourage you check out the rest of the pictures of the model, there is a close up on Ferrus' face that is great.

Be sure to check out more views of it on Putty and Paint and show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,
