Mini of the Week 1-3-20

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.

Leena Stormspire by Javier García Mir on Putty and Paint

I always love a good non-metallic metal Stormcast and this model definitely qualifies as that. The reflections on the armor are spot on and I really like the colors used. While this looks to be a classic Hammers of Sigmar color scheme, they have chosen a darker shade of gold. It almost sits somewhere between a bronze and a gold, and in my opinion, gives the model a better sense of drama. The darker colors also contrast really with with the lighter areas, like the cloak, sword, base, and head. It's kind of framed in by these lighter areas. Everything is crisp and smooth, and the reflections are spot on. You can even see some gold getting reflected in the silver tabard armor.

I like the variation of texture as well. The leather parts have a bit of a rougher feel to them to contrast with the much smoother armor. The base is nice and simple, but has enough variation in the rocks to give it some visual interest. This model almost feels like a traditional painting brought to life. It's also the first time I've seen a high level paint job on this particular Stormcast model, which I am a fan of.

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

Until next time,
