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.

I really like the blues and purples used for Doghar's skin. It looks great, but also realistic, since it has a somewhat desaturated feel to it. Even the heads have a similarly cool scheme to them. The red of the Khorne head has a bit more violet in it and the green of the Nurgle head is a bit teal. They are still clearly their gods' colors, but have been tied into the blues of the rest of the body. The Tzeentch head obviously gets the most mileage out of the use of blues, and I really like the transition to purple on it. Some other nice areas on the model is the mottled pattern on the wings and the fire effect on the sword. These add a nice bit of micro detail to an otherwise very large model. Overall this mini is great and unique at the same time.
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.
