Mini of the Week 9-15-17


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 Flames of Tzeentch by PaweĊ‚ Makuch on Putty and Paint
I saw this model progress in a Facebook group as he was painting it, and wow, it turned out as cool as I thought it would. The idea here is perfect for Tzeentch and he's really executed it well. The flames, which I believe he made out of cotton, really have an otherworldly feel to them. Even their structure is a little off, seeming wispier than what we are used to with fire. Of course it's the technicolor paint job that really pushes the magical effect home and the color choices here are pretty cool. They definitely have a Tzeentch feel to them with all of the blue, teals, and purples.

The Thousand Sons marine himself is very well painted as well, with everything very smooth and crisp. The color scheme is rather traditional, but he has managed to work in many of the colors from the flames too. Some of this is done by painting lighting effects and reflections, but others are just subtly woven through the existing Thousand Sons color scheme. The overall effect of the diorama is exactly what you would want from something like this, and it looks like it could be a piece of artwork in a Games Workshop publication to me. All in all this is a very unique, yet iconic idea, that has been pulled off flawlessly.

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


For those who don't follow the Warhammer Community site already (which you should start doing), they posted up a step by step tutorial the other day of a Hallowed Knight I painted. You can check it out here, and be sure to check their site (roughly) weekly for more cool content from me.

Until next time,
