Mini of the Week 7-17-20

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.

Necrons Pandemonium by Max Richiero
This entry seemed very timely considering the Indomitus set will be hitting shelves in about a week. This diorama is very evocative of the classic piece of art of the Nightbringer from the first Necron codex. I love how he's looming over the Necrons in front of him with the Monolith framing him from behind. The colors are all very classic, but they look wonderful all together. I really love how the neon green is radiating out of the portal behind the Nightbringer, framing him with a cobweb of energy. The light blue of the C'tan just stands out so wonderfully against the green of the Monolith.

Everything is crisp and smooth and painted to a really high standard. It took silver at the 2019 Golden Demon awards for diorama, and rightfully so. There's just so much story packed into this piece. I think the only thing that could improve it would be the new sculpts, but there's no way to really do that. Even the plinth has been incorporated. I like how it's kept as just wood, but made to look like a cliff with the Marine falling off. It's a really interesting blend of scenic and display plinth.

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,
