Mini of the Week 7-31-15

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.

Perturabo by WarmasterPainting on Cool Mini or Not
The new Perturabo model from Forge World is one of their better Primarchs in my opinion. Now they are all great, but this guy is perfectly understated. Being an Iron Warrior he suffers from the danger of being overly bland when painted because of all of the metallics. I really like the slightly blue tint this painter has decided to use to break up all of the silver. It's something different and works well with the other colors on the model but is still recognizable as an Iron Warrior.

All of the rest of the painting on this guy is terrific. It's all very subdued to give that realistic, desaturated look. I particularly like the face, it's very life like. There's not much else for me to say about this guy, it's just one of the better paint jobs I have seen on this fairly new model. It's nice to see some Primarch models that aren't Horus. For a few months there that was all people were painting. Iron within, Iron without!

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.
