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.
|Gutrot Spume by David Soper|
Besides all of the fantastic painting on the model, there is some great modeling as well. The conversion on Gutrot himself is subtle but effective, just replacing his ax with a trident, further reinforcing his nautical image. Speaking of nautical image, that boat prow is insane. I love everything about it, from the mold, the tentacles, the anchor, and the splashing water. The water splashes really stand out to me and he actually goes over how he made those on his website in pretty good detail. I don't know what more I can say about this, I mean it won the Slayer Sword and definitely deserved it.
Be sure to check out more views of the model on Cool Mini or Not, and show the artist some love if you like it. Also check out his own website where he is currently painting an Orruk Megaboss that already looks like it will be a serious contender for next year's Slayer Sword here.
Until next time,
What do you think of this model?
