Mini of the Week 7-21-17

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 Thamaturge by Roman Lappat on Putty and Paint

This is just such a cool idea for a mini. It really combines some great mini painting with some more non-traditional methods that are usually more suited to traditional art. I just absolutely love how bright and saturated the orange is compared to the rest of the mini which is rather grey. Not only is it used as the magical color, but the way it's splattered over the display plinth really brings to mind the idea of the magical elements leaking off of him in gobs and splattering across the ground.

It feels like something that we would see in an artsy, cell-shaded video game. Roman, of course, is no stranger to amazing minis and innovating the craft. While this guy sin't super tight or smooth, the "roughness" of the brush work actually lends itself more to the emotion of the model. It's kind of a "street art" take on a GW mini. I would love to see a series like this, with different models utilizing different super saturated colors. Perhaps red for Khorne, purple for Death, and Green for orruks? 

Be sure to check out more views of the model on Putty and Paint and show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,

Tyler M.
