Mini of the Week 2-23-18

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.

Primaris Captain by Anamnesis on CMoN
Now that is one intimidating looking Primaris Captian. The conversion work on this is great, and to me looks mostly like bits swaps and a bit of cutting. The inclusion of the Sanguinary Guard wings on the back really helps reinforce the Blood Angels theme, as does the blood drop on the chest. The axe further helps that, but also makes this guy look suitably brutal. The head choice is awesome, and it's probably one of my favorite new heads from the Primaris Marines. The Reivers really show off the brutal, terror weapon side of the Space Marines. 

The painting on this model is pretty darn good, but at the same time stays fairly simple. I mean that in a good way too. I really like that this guy isn't all blinged out in gold, but instead uses the secondary black color in its place. It reminds me a lot of more classic Blood Angel schemes, and makes sure that the captain maintains a menacing aura. Everything is sharp and smooth, with a good amount of weathering to show he's been in the thick of the fighting. The dead Alpha Legion marine at his feet does a good job at adding some interest to the base without being distracting. The only thing on this model that I might change is the amount of dust on the feet. It looks a little too extreme for my tastes and hides the amazing painting of the armor. All in all though, this is definitely a cool looking model and a whole army done like this would be awesome looking.

Be sure to check out more views of the model on Cool Mini or Not and show the artist some love if you like it.

Until next time,
