Mini of the Week 10-18-19

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.

Sigmar Bust by Magnus Fagerberg

What a cool idea! I never would have thought of painting the Sigmar statue from the Stormvault terrain as an actual bust of Sigmar himself. It works perfectly though. That statue is a very nice sculpt and is super detailed. I think there may have been some cracks and crips that he would have had to fill, but besides that, this is the statue as is. I really like the painterly style to it. The brush strokes are evident in places, but it's clearly intentional. All of the color transitions are spot on and the non-metallic metals fit it perfectly.

The fade from a realistic bust to the statue plinth is a nice touch and a great way to blend the two pieces. The skin on this is done amazingly as well and there's even some directional lighting which you can see most clearly on his hair. I don't really have anything to criticize on this, it's a wonderfully executed idea that utilizes an existing model in a way I never would have thought of. I love it.

Be sure to check out more views of it on Putty and Paint.

Until next time,
