Mini of the Week 7-3-20

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.

Stormcast Eternal by Olmo Castrillo Miniatures
This is one of the best non-metallic metal color schemes I've seen in awhile. The reflections are pretty stellar, especially the ones on the rounded pieces of armor, that's always trickier. I like how the colors around him are getting reflected in the gold as well. Everything is incredibly smooth and crisp but I think my favorite part of the model are the color choices.

All of the colors are nice and saturated and overall have a very warm feeling to them. Even the blue feels a bit warm with how saturated it is. The base further reinforces this with warm colors that are pretty close to what's used on the model, but still feels different thanks to the texture. The green vegetation on the rocks even further reinforces this. Not only is the green use a warm green, but it makes the setting feel warm. I can imagine this guy in a jungle or some wild part of Ghur. It's probably the nicest Non-metallic Metal Stormcast I've seen since the Lord-Celestant done by Darren Lathem.

Be sure to check it out on the artist's Facebook Page to see some more angles and show the artist some love if you like it. 

Until next time,
