Mini of the Week 9-6-10


Loonboss on Giant Squig

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.

I've seen quite a few top end painters tackle this model as a project, and they never disappoint. As far as I can tell there's no conversion work on this besides the base, which is fine, since the model is super dynamic on its own. I really like the color choices here. The orange of the squig is so vibrant, yet still entirely realistic looking. The blending to the red around the mouth and the darker colors near the back really lend it a feel or realism. This warm tone is contrasted wonderfully with the very cold, and almost blueish green of the grot's skin and the squig's tongue. It's not a shade of green we often see for the any of the greenskins. I feel like it really makes the grot feel menacing. 

I'm a huge fan of limited palettes, and this one is pretty much just orange and that tealish green. The red of the robes tie in with the red around the mouth and the orange of the squig. Besides that, everything else are pretty neutral colors with the rusted metallics and dark bone. Even the base is just orange and green. It's a beautiful execution of a wonderful model.

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,
