Mini of the Week 7-22-16

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.

Slaughter Priest by Roman Lappat on Putty and Paint
Wow, this guy is one brutal looking model. Where should I start on this. The atmosphere and feeling of this model just perfectly nails the Chaos and Khorne aesthetic. This absolutely looks like something from someone's nightmares, or at the very least a death metal album cover. I love the super pallid skin tones which have a bruised quality to them. It contrasts perfectly with the dark red of the armor. I'm not 100% sure what's going on with the neon pink and orange, but I like it. It almost makes him look like he's a video game character or something. It's just so unique I applaud the painter for doing something so bold.

The base on this guy is great as well. He's standing on not just a pile of skulls, but severed heads as well, including a gargant's. The base perfectly fits the feel of the model and works perfectly to frame it while also giving it a mini diorama feel. Besides the neon colors, the model has a very desaturated and realistic feel to it, which probably helps the neon stand out more. All of the painting is smooth, crisp, and purposeful. Each splatter looks very purposely placed while completely natural at the same time. I would love to see more Bloodbound painted in this manner.

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,
