Mini of the Year 2019

The votes are in, and you've chosen from amongst the 10 most popular Minis of the Week from 2019. So who will take home the title of Mini of the Year?

All 10 of these models are fantastic, but there can only be one winner. Well, three, because I'm going to list the third and second place winners as well. After tabulating the votes here are your runners up for Mini of the Year.

Third Place

Squig Hopper by In_The_Middle

This model has all of the wackiness we expect from a member of the Gloomspite, but still manages to have the flavor of an actual knight. I think it's this combination of the fantastical and the traditional that takes the model to a whole other level of wackiness. It's like a great sarcastic joke or something. You can just imagine this Grot trying to take himself seriously as an honorable knight, but doing it in all of the wrong ways. The converting on this is great and the paint job is practically flawless. The subdued colors on everything but the skin really helps sell it as well.

Second Place

Loonboss by Sadziu

Grots are definitely a popular choice this year. There's no denying this model is striking. The lighting effects on it are extremely unique and very well done. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this. It really reflects the clammy dank of the Gloomspite as well. This is definitely a very worthy choice for second place.

First Place

Dreadblade Harrow by wilkzswetra

Everyone knows I like a well done Nighthaunt and this model definitely hits the mark in that regard. It's thematic, it's striking, and it's just exceptionally well done. The bright, almost neon teal works very well with the dark colors on the rest of the model. It fits the ethereal look perfectly. Everything is very smooth and crisp, and most importantly, it just grabs your attention and doesn't let go.

Well, that's it for 2019! You have decided upon the best model from all of last year, and it's pretty darn cool. Now we have another full year of Minis of the Weeks ahead of us, so prepare yourself for more stunning models every Friday!

Until next time,
