Mini of the Week 6-23-17

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.

Stormcast Eternal Palladors by Chris Clayton

Today we have another stunning Golden Demon winning model, or in this case, models. The first time I saw these I was amazed, and I still am. The color choice is wonderful, with the more muted colors giving these fantastical beasts a more realistic look. I also just really like the blues and turquoises with the pale and creamy white. The animal patterns on them are a great touch as well. The basing is also suitably realistic looking, with a cool mossy, forest floor feel to them. 

What really steals the show though are the Stormcast riding atop them. From what I have heard, Chris used really gold flakes in the paint to give it such a shiny and realistic look. I have honestly never seen such realistic looking gold on a miniature before. The fact that he has also painted the blue areas on the armor as metallic just further reinforces the idea that it's all made out of real metal. Everything on these Palladors is just fantastic, and in my opinion, paint jobs like this really help to ground the more fantastical elements of AoS into a real world. I love super fantasy paint jobs as well, it's just nice to see something so realistic sometimes.

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

Until next time,
