Mini of the Week 11-2-18

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.

Nighthaunt Hero by Tobi Luka
Today's Mini of the Week actually comes from the pages of the Nighthaunt Facebook page. The moment I saw this model I knew it was something special. It's such a simple conversion, but makes the model so much creepier. I love the sculpt for the Birthday model on it's own, but by switching out the masked face for the head from the Banshee it gains a real unsettling feel. Like I could picture this character haunting some woods, the ghost of a long dead witch or something along those lines. Switching out the sword for the scythe also changes it up a bit and by having the roses on there it ties itself nicely into the Briar Queen and Lady Olynder.

I really like th paint job on this mini too. The ghostly parts have a nice warmth to them that goes well with the brown shroud. I like how the shroud is a warm brown highlighted with cold blueish greys while the ghostly parts are a warm lighter color shaded with a cold blue. It balances the model nicely. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out in the Nighthaunt FB group for more addition from Tobi.

Why not join the Nighthaunt Facebook page here and check out more views of the model plus lots of other cool Nighthaunt projects!

Until next time,
