Mini of the Week 2-14-20

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.

Zoanathrope by Nguyen.S on Cool Mini or Not

This is just so cool! It's a completely scratch built Zoanathrope made to look like the old second edition model. I mean, this is pretty much perfect. It looks just like it with a slightly more dynamic look to it. The painting is great as well. The black, purple, and bone really compliment each other and give it a truly alien look. The addition of the green lightning is the perfect tough to finish it off and really gets across the psychic nature of it. I think the purple brain is the coolest part for me.

I mean, just look at this sculpt. It's amazing! I'd love to see more "revivals" of retro models like this. I know Forge World is pretty much already doing that with all the Marine stuff, but seeing some non-Marine stuff is cool as well.

Here's the actual second edition model. It's pretty close.

I'm assuming this is the artwork they used for their pose. Amazing stuff. I just really, really like this. Now I'm all nostalgic for my own 3rd edition Tyranid force.

Be sure to check it out on Cool Mini or Not and show the artist some love if you like it!

Until next time,
