Mini of the Week 6-12-20

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.

Lazarus by Steve Garcia on Putty and Paint
This is such a smooth paint job. The transitions on the armor and the reflections is like butter. Not only that, but the colors are nice and saturated, but not overly so. There's not really anything done with the color scheme that is a unique take, but there doesn't have to be. The level of skill on display here really shows off the standard Dark Angels color scheme. There is a really nice bit of freehand on the back of the cloak (check it out on Putty and Paint). I think one thing that stands out to me is the subtle, yet significant difference in texture. The armor feels smooth, while the cloth has a bit of a rougher texture to it. The skin has a softness to is that makes it feel different than either of those too. The non-metallic metal work is great, without trying to be the center of attention. The face on this really is pretty amazing. His hair even has a bit of a slick feel to it, like it has hair gel in it. Which, just mentioning it, it's kind of funny imagining a Space Marine putting gel in their hair and styling it, but they must to get styles like this.

The base on this is superb. It screams Imperium to me. The skulls that make up the step a great touch. You can never have too many skulls in 40k. The candles gives a nice hint of warmth, while also supplying some cool OSL. Even the stone on the base has a significantly different texture to it than the rest of the model. Really, just great all around.

Be sure to check it out on Putty and Paint to see some more angles and show the artist some love if you like it. 

Until next time,
