Monday Miniatures: The Undertaker
I’ll be honest with you – this week has not been particularly pleasant. Fortunately miniatures, both the kickstarting and the painting of continues to be a bright spot, and this week there is a lot to report, including 4 versions of the miniature painted above, and a recap on Reaper’s recent launch.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get right too it.
First up we have Reaper round 2. I went into this topic in a little bit of depth here, but needless to say, this is a BIG project. So far they have raised almost 1.5 million, and I’m sure that the project will continue to break records going forward. The thing you have to ask yourself is, ‘if you just received 200+ miniatures from him, do you really need to pledge for 200 more?’
Chibi Asian Adventures also posted, and is exactly what it sounds like.
All things Zombie is a mini game with some passable sculpts.
Mars Attacks is project number 47 (okay, 5) from Mantic, and officially licensed to boot. They seem to becoming quite the major player.
First up we have my undertaker. The OSL didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped, but it was certainly better than last week’s beholder.
Next comes Jeff, who tried a monochrome noir motif. The result I think is a spooky statue – the dry brushing really leaves the impression of weather-beaten stone.
Clint’s base is awesome, but the way he made that dull color scheme come to life with subtle color is amazing.
Lastly we have Jessica’s undertaker. Though I think Clint edges her out for the win this week, she definitely kicked my ass (again.) I love the eyes. She should write a tutorial on them. I have no idea how she does them so well, and all my mini’s come out cross eyed.
Next week we will be Painting the Mummy Warrior pictured above. I also had requests from last week’s burst of traffic to move the timeline a little further out so people would have a greater chance to participate, so the next 6 mini’s for the the next 6 weeks are, in order:
