Monday Miniatures: Anval
This miniature is scary even when it is unpainted. One of our regular painters did point out that it is ridiculous to wear that much armor when none of it is protecting your vital organs. While I agree, I would never make judgements about the fashion sense of man that carries an axe that size in one hand.
That would be bad for my health.
There are no projects I want to recomend this week, but it is worth pointing out that Mierce has launched yet another Kickstarter. This would make their fifth project in a year and a half that has raked in half a million pounds.
So for my first try on this mini I went with a darker skined color scheme with bright colorful armor, but it just didn’t look right, so after a scrub with a greenie, this is my second attempt. I’m not in love with it either, but I think with a little more work, it will turn out okay.
Magnus really practiced his NMM technique this week. It looks really great. Though the choice in color scheme was largely the same as mine, he was , you know – not lazy. Really great work.
Arjen was not in love with this scuplt. He pointed out just how small the head was (though when I was painting it it was the size of the right hand that bothered me – it’s huge!) I feel like this color scheme was torn from the pages of heavy metal magazine – I really like it, even if he doesn’t.
Dirk surprises none of our regular readers by turning in another awesome mini. I love the axe detail, and the leather feels like it has real depth.
Rustkill finished a mini too. I love the clean edging and bright colors present on this model. It is exceptionally crisp and full of detail.
