Monday Miniatures: The Griffon
This week we have 8 painters, and 3 projects to share with you.
All Things Horror – Zombie miniatures anyone?
Fantasy Worlds – This one is a pretty eclectic mix of minis.
Swedish Army – The Swede’s are coming!
A model this large presented some interesting challenges, mostly in time commitment and picture quality. I lack a setup that can properly light and frame such a large mini. A proper light box is definitely on my to do list; a couple of the emails sent to me echoed a similar sentiment.
Despite the challenges, I really enjoyed this mini. The detail in the wings was excellent, and really fun to paint. Photo issues aside, I’m really happy with how this one came out.
Jessica has color variation that is both wonderful and subtle.
David went with the darkest of all the color schemes this week.
Clint’s lion half is my favorite on all the minis, I also think it looks the most likely to eat me.
Arjen’s wings came out AMAZING. I love the striations and the details.
Danniel chose a unique and authentic color scheme, complete with photo references. I thought it came out really nicely.
Laura went with a beautiful winter color scheme. She was one of the only painters not to go with a traditional brown color scheme.
Tonya got her Griffon in just as I was going to bed. Her feather details are equally outstanding; I think this one is my favorite for the week. She said she could have used more time, but I don’t see where it would be needed personally.
