Miniature of the month: June 2012

It is getting hotter and hotter and staying at home is almost like a crime 😉
But still 26 Chest of Colors forum members found some time to paint something. I think we can be happy with their results, which can be seen in the collection of Miniature of the Month June collection. What always keeps me amazing about every month’s collections is the variety of the miniatures. Different companies and different styles of painting.

Which one do you like best? Vote and discus it here or at your forum.

Authors say

Now here’s what the authors said about their works:

I think I picked this one up at ReaperCon 2011 (or perhaps earlier), and based and primed it around that time. Then it sat on my desk untouched for many months until sometime this spring when I started on it again. I got close to finishing it, and then it sat again for another month or so. I’ve finally finished it, and will be shipping it down to Reaper soonish.

Holy smokes it’s been a while since I completed a mini. Longest stretch I’ve had in a long, long while. I painted this one up for a friend and also for a challenge over on the WAMP boards vs. the legendary CofC’s very own Nameless! Of course this thing challenge has really dragged on so I won’t blame Nameless if he’s not so interested anymore. Anyway, here he is.

This is the Dwarf Lord I posted in the WIP section: I completed it trying to apply the advice I received. I know I could improve many things on it, anyway I try to improve through various works. I’m not completely satisfied with the cape (especially for the shading), but I will take care of the experience for future red capes

Here’s my finished Cryx Slayer. Tried to use some new stuff to me (to make stuff look like it’s glowing, battle damage) though, seems that for a first try it was mostly a fail but at least the mini moves away from the Pile of Shame

Miniatures of the month June

Rules and voting

Everybody can vote for 3 miniatures of their choice. There will be one Miniature of the Month (the winner) and up to two honorable mentions. The number of honorable mentions will be reduced if two miniatures tie for the title of the Miniature of the Month, so the maximum number of awarded entries is 3.

OK, so now you should be ready to vote:


The poll is open until the end of July. The results will be posted after the poll is closed and the winner will receive a honorary badge to display in his profile on our miniature painting forum. In case of a tie, the badge will be awarded to the winners. Up to two models will also receive honorary mentions.

We encourage you to comment on this month’s entries, explain your votes or even discuss votes of other users – we’ll be happy to read what you have to say. So don’t be shy and share your opinion with us. Thanks a lot!


UPDATE: No winner this time. Slawol and CTan tied for the first place with equal numbers of votes, Flameon being next. So they all receive honorable mentions but no single entry is awarded the title and badge of the Miniature of June 2012. We wish you all better luck the next time. 🙂

  1. Winners: Ctan, Reynevan, Marta.

    4th – Flameon – for his fantastic NMM.
    5th – Corvus – very original colour scheme: cold and creepy.
    6th – FiloSganga – overall. Good looking dwarf, nice NMM, clean paintjob and limited palette. I LOVE HIS HELMET!!!
    7th – ScottRadom – pretty nice blending on this Eldar.

    Very nice gallery, congratulations to all! 🙂

  2. 1. C’Tan: great atmosphere for a solid, epic visual impact
    2. Reynevan: the delicate sound of skin… Even fabrics are really impressive
    3. Marta: an unusual mini, a really good and realistic interpretation
