Mini of the Week 4-1-16

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.

Sigmar Priest by Seyerlerver on Cool Mini or Not
This little diorama has a nice classic sense to it. The color choices mixed with the base really evoke older painting for me. I think it's the off white marble tiles and pillars along with the lone tree and the rich red. It looks like something that could have come out of the renaissance era if it had a bit harsher shadows on it. All of the painting is smooth and crisp and the non-metallic metals are particularly good. They are very soft, which again lends itself to the renaissance feel. I like how the red of his robes has been painted into the reflections on the silver armor in a few areas. It really heightens the realism of the piece. 

I think my favorite part may be the face. I just love the ones used in it, and of course the skill on display. The diorama base is a close second for my favorite area though. It's the perfect frame for the model. It evokes a ton of character, while staying fairly minimalist and allowing the mini to shine. It doesn't steal the show, just enhance it.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on Cool Mini or Notand show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,

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.
