Mini of the Week 3-31-17

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.

The Tribute by Michal Pisarski
What other model could the Mini of the Week be today besides this fantastic entry from Crystal Brush. Everything about the model is absolutely perfect! The amount of conversion that went into making Nagash seem natural in that pose, as well as the kneeling vampire is astounding. That's before we even get to the chair back! I love how seamlessly he has been able to blend all of the ghouls and Varghiests together to look like a truly creepy sculpture. I just love how they are all trying to hold each other down. Definitely has a very Gates of Hell feel to them. The tattered fabric of Nagash's robes spilling out from the chair is spot on as well, and the heavy, moldy drapes behind him really add to the feel of rotting elegance.

The painting on this is byond reproach, with all of the colors having a very subdued and sombre feel to them. Besides the green on Nagash's crown and the crimson of the cloak, there's not much else going on color wise, really making the colors that are there pop. Everything is super crisp and smooth, and the non-metallic metals on Nagash and the vampire are top notch. He even has subtle hints of colors reflecting in the metals. I'm happy that he kept the steps to Nagash's throne sandstone in appearance so that there's a little nod back to his Nehekharen roots. Really, everything about this model is perfect, and it definitely deserved the second place trophy it got at Crystal Brush. To be honest, I'm surprised it didn't take the gold. All bow before Nagash.

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.

Until next time,
