Mini of the Week 9-22-17

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.

Too Late by Alessandro Marinone on Putty and Paint
I first saw this diorama on the Golden Demon website, and what a beauty it is! This really encapsulates the feeling of the Silver Tower and looks incredibly cinematic. I love pretty much everything about this. There aren't any conversions, besides the Greater Demon coming through the portal, but it all works so well together. This is a testament to the strength of the original sculpts, but also a testament to the skill of the hobbyist on how they placed the models. They have made a dynamic, convincing scene, that tells it's story perfectly. The choice of a man, a duardin, and an aelf is perfect too, showing the triumvirate of Warhammer order races. 

The diorama scenery is very well made too, looking like something that would be found inside a dungeon, but with just the right amount of otherworldness that a Silver Tower should have. There's nothing more AoS than a portal, so that fits right in. The bold, saturated colors of the demon and the portal work perfectly against the drab greys of the bricks, really drawing your eye into the center of the piece. The three heroes have just the right amount of pop to them as well, making sure they stand out. Everything on this is painted perfectly, with smooth blends and crisp highlights. I think this is a pretty good job at emulating the 'Eavy Metal style, which is my personal favorite. Everything about this is perfectly executed really, a great diorama for the Silver Tower.

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

This past week I had another step by step tutorial, this time on the Nighthaunts' Hexwraiths, up on the Warhammer Community site here. It covers pretty much everything you would need to know to paint any Nighthaunts model, so give it a look and check their site regularly for more articles from me.

Until next time,

Tyler M.
