Mini of the Week 1-6-17

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.

Ogroid Thaumaturge by Angelo di Chello
It's Tzaanuary and I figured what better way to celebrate then a Tzeentchian Mini of the Week. This amazing model was the gold winning entry from the Monsters category of the Age of Sigmar Golden Demons and I would say it definitely deserved that trophy. All of the highlights are insanely crisp and the blends are perfect. I think the thing that really makes this model stand out for me though are the color choices. I love how they have managed to blend from a brownish purple through a grey blue to almost pure white. It's intense, magical looking, and at the same time somehow grounded in reality. The magical flames coming out of his staff go through even more color changes and it's all seamless. Painting the magical runes on his skin an almost pure white is not something I would have ever thought of doing, but it works perfectly on this guy. The fact that there are little touches of purple and blue throughout them helps tie it into the skin. This guy is absolutely flawless and definitely deserving of its win.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on the official Games Workshop Golden Demon website.

Until next time,
