Mini of the Week 5-12-17

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.

Betrayal at Calth by Ryan Allen
Battlefleet Gothic dioramas are always super cool to me. I'm a big fan of that game, the models, and even love reading about void battles in the novels. If a novel has an extensive void battle scene in it then I am sold. It's a shame we don't see stuff like this more often, but when we do it always looks fantastic. It's even more impressive when you consider how small and fiddly these models are. Using lance blasts as a way to pin the models together and achieve the space fight look of weightlessness is really smart and dynamic. It's something I've seen before on Battlefleet Gothic dioramas, but if it's not broke don't fix it.

The painting on this is pretty darn good, which is probably why it won Gold at the Heresy Golden Demon in the Duel category. What really sells it for me though are all of the little explosions and the torpedoes though. Those torpedoes look awesome and, man, are they small. It's the extra effort like this that pushes it over the top to Golden Demon standard. I hope we see more dioramas like this in the future.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on the Official Golden Demon site.

Until next time,
