Mini of the Week 7-11-21

Welcome back to Mini of the Week, where every week I will find a miniature from around the web that exemplifies an aspect of our hobby and share it with you.

Vampire Lord on Zombie Dragon by Tobi Luka

Wow, this is such an awesome conversion! The new head on the zombie dragon model makes it so much more intimidating. I really love how much more it reinforces the zombie aspect of it. Getting rid of the rocks it's usually perched on was a great idea too. It gives it more of a sense of looming over the enemy. He's even added in some extra guts hanging out of the model. It looks like the vampire himself has had a few pieces incorporated in from the new Blood Knights kits as well. The new head is a pretty involved conversion, but Tobi had posted a step by step for it on his Instagram if you want to try it as well. 

The painting on the model is superb as well. I really like the color choices. The pale green/blue/grey for the skin is super striking and contrasts with the reds of the muscles and vampire armor wonderfully. Everything is smooth and crisp and very well defined. I also feel like the armor and the organic parts of the model look distinctively different in terms of texture. All around this is just a spectacular model!

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

Until next time,
