Stormcast Eternal by Eve Hallow Miniatures

There's so much amazing brushwork floating around the Internet, and for me, it's not about the quest for the perfect miniature. What I love to see are the little flourishes of personality that distinguish one painter from another. That's why I've decided to start sharing some of my favorite minis from around the Web. With that in mind, I thought I'd start out with the model that inspired this little project  – Eve Hallow Miniatures' Stormcast Eternal.

Lately I've been realizing how lazy I can be when it comes to painting metallics. This mini has utterly shamed me. This isn't a plastic model; it's a rock solid, hulking, clanking brute. The subtle brown tones give the model the warmth that's often lacking with metallics, but they're executed with a level of self-control that I find impressive. The armor looks used, but not corroded, and with my own overly-grungy painting style I admire the ability to convey a sense of age while maintaining an overall "clean" look. There is clearly a lot of brush control involved here. It's heavy, worn, and skillfully executed.

Check it out at Eve Hallow Miniatures.
