Monday Miniatures: Malek
This week we delve into the horrors of the grave with a necromancer. Peek below the fold for a look at five horrors from the twisted minds of our contributors.
Dwarf Forge -This project isn’t new, but it is coming to an end. If you want to build a dungeon, either for play or dioramas, now is your last chance.
This week I decided to practice my shading. I used only black paint, white paint and water. Generally I rely heavily on fancy washes and such; this time I thought I’d work on more basic skills. The process was frustrating, but the result is very nice. I’ve seen plenty of monochrome figures before, but this is the first time I ever tried it.
Magnus on the other hand went with really vibrant colors. Any guesses as to what his inspiration was?
The Vogels did an excellent job as always. I love the cape on this one. Three different hides sewn together with some great paint schemes to tell a story as they always do. I hate to think of what horror he is resurrecting from that grave. Did the two face motif inspire the cloak, or was it the other way around?
Arjen, on the other hand really spent a lot of time on that staff. I love the multi hued metallic iridescence. Why don’t you go paint a dragon in that style for us? Great depth of color though on this model, really.
Last we have a new painter, Amy, joining us with a hell of a first effort. Bright and subdued by turns, I think she did a great job. The subtle mottling on the cloth is my favorite part though.
Domino shows off their WIP just after my bed time. So far is looking really good!

Village Rioter – Let’s see some OSL this week.
Undead Horde – a consistent theme I’ve seen in recent posts is just how long these mini’s are taking people to paint. This week let’s take a crack at all the skeletons we have stacked up. Base coat. Shade. Dry brush. Highlight. Try to get your technique down to less than half an hour a mini and see if you can knock out at least three of these little guys (we were shipped six.)
