Mini of the Week 6-8-18

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.

Skeleton Horde by KAHA on CMoN
I have seen several models by this artist, and what else can I say besides they are amazing! The attention to detail she pays is beyond anything I could do. I really like the idea of mounting the Morghast on the Mortarch mount. It makes for a unique mini, and scale wise they're about right. This is more a diorama than a single model I really get the feeling that this guy is leading the hordes of death forth. The painting is crisp and smooth, and the contrast is out of this world. That has always been one of her strong suits. She can effortlessly blend from near total black to a bright saturated color and have the transition be smooth and seamless. By keeping all of the elements surrounding the Morghast blue, your eye is drawn to the stark red details on the rider and mount.

One of the other things she's known for are her complex bases. Not only does she sculpt the rock formations, but most of those cracks and other details on it are freehand. It really shows off her skill at line control. To me, her work almost always brings to mind a spider web, that's how thin and intricate she makes her lines. By keeping the ground brown and warm, it helps draw attention to the cold blues of the death magic slowly seeping through it. There's not much more I can say on this, it's just amazing!

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,
