Mini of the Week 6-3-16

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.

Gabriel Angelos by Pawel Makuch on Putty and Paint
If, like myself, you played Dawn of War a lot when it first came out, then you already know who Gabriel Angelos is. The now Chapter Master of the Blood Ravens was a major character in the first game, had a pretty big role in Dawn of War 2 Retribution, and looks to be making a return with Dawn of War 3. The conversion work on this is pretty spot on, and for me at least, I know who it was supposed to be right away. It's rather unique seeing a well done Space Marine on a bike and I really like the little bit of narrative that has been worked into the base. The way the Necron's head is coming apart from the hammer blow is really cool and realistic.

The painting is top notch as well, with smooth blending and crisp highlights. The glowing on the hammer acts as a nice focal point, contrasting with the red of his armor. I'm not 100% sure what's going on with the base with the ground coming apart, but it sure does look cool. I don't know what else I can really say about it, it's just a very well done model.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on Putty and Paint, and 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.
