Mini of the Week 5-8-15

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.

Eversor Assassin, painted by Ben Komets, Sculpted by Mati Zander on Putty and Paint 
The first thing I need to point out about this model is that it's roughly 54mm tall and completely scratch built. I think it's always interesting when someone takes our heroic scale models and upscales them into more realistic proportions. What's even more interesting is how it was built by one person and painted by another. Ben Komets is an astounding painter and a multiple Golden Demon winner and this model is no different.

I really like how he choose a warmer color for the black. It's something you don't see very often. He almost has a graphite like quality to it. The scenic backdrop really adds a nice touch as well and helps frame the scene. You can really imagine this guy creeping through the sewers to take out his next target. I don't know what else to really say about it, it's a fantastic model and a great example of a collaboration between two artists.

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,

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.
