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.
|Undead Army by Martin at Hotdrop Studios|
Today's Mini of the Week breaks from tradition a bit since it is more accurately an Army of the Week. I couldn't just pick one model from Martin's force, so I decided just to show off the whole thing. I really love everything about these models. The color scheme is perfect for the undead, with an overall cold feeling permeating everything.
Every model is slightly tinted a blueish green color and it really makes it feel like it's freshly risen from the grave. I really like the green flames on this Mortis Engines. He are so vivid that they absolutely pop against the more monotone and slightly desaturated nature of the rest of the model. It gives them a real magical feel.
I mean just check out that detail on the book on the Mortis Engine. That is so awesome freehand and really shows the attention to detail on the model.
The transitions on this Mourngul are perfectly smooth and really drive home that ethereal feel. He's also removed the horse under its hand to replace it with a rock. As the new owner of a Mourngul myself, let me tell you that would not have been easy to do.
For his second Mourngul he went with the Nightbringer model from 40k with some minor conversion to have a bit of variety between the two. I think he definitely nailed the look and it fits right in with the rest of their force.
These Morghasts are the newest addition to the army. I like the use of black armor over purple armor on these. It makes them look more sinister and less cartoony.
To finish it off, here is my favorite mini from the army. I believe he said he uses it as an objective marker. There's a ton of character in this model and the violin is just plain awesome.
Be sure to check out the rest of the army on the Hotdrop Studios Facebook Page. He also does commissions if you're interested, and clearly, he is very talented.
