Mini of the Week 10-9-20


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.

Weirdnob Shaman by rav3n on Putty and Paint

I'm always a fan of orruks or orks that have a more naturalistic feel to them. This Weirdnob Shaman has a more stripped down feel to him, partially because the model is literally more stripped down. The conversion has removed a lot of his robes and hood, as well as making the staff more simple. It gives him a much more primitive feel. I could see this shaman fitting in easily with a Bonesplitterz army as well as an Ironjawz one. The skin tone on this orruk has a wonderful pale feel to it. I really like the yellow tone to it as well. Seeing as how the bits of metal hanging around his wait have a similar color to them, this mini is almost two colors exclusively, the pale green and the reddish brown.

The painting itself is to a really high quality, with some really nice blends and highlights. The diorama base is a nice touch as well. Again, it reinforces the primitive feel of the model. This isn't some totem that the shaman built, but the ruined pillar of some more ancient civilization that he's taken as his own. My favorite touch is the rune carved into the pillar that's glowing with magical energy matches the shape of the tip of the Shaman's staff. It's a really nice bit of detail that really stands out.

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

Until next time,
