Miniature of the month: November 2012

Miniature of the month: November 2012

Merry Christmas everyone! It’s so cold outside that it really makes you stay at home and put some paint on miniatures. Remember now until the end of the year you can paint and post a photo of your miniature and take part in December edition of Mini of the Month.

Authors say

Now here is what the authors said about their works:

So long time since I posted something on this great forum. Here is a Dark angels librarian who was done as a test, finished him in about 5-6h. Since it was a quick paint job I´m rather pleased with him, still some pointers would be useful if I decide to go back to him some day. — synthet
Here are the Imperial fist 5 man crew from the 1st space crusade game board they were painted for the owner of the game with the intention being abused during the game battles. They have a lots of weapons some are magnetized since the support was broken along time ago — Pandadosmares
This time i spend my work for a Space Wolves Landraider and tried to make him outstanding with some add ons and a level 4 Higher TT Painting. To make the Rust i used the “Salt Technique” combined with the “Wipe Off Technique”. Using those techniques a great realistic used effect on the whole model. In the normal out of the Box Land Raider are no Space Wolves drivers added so i searched my bitz box and also added some Forge World Icons and things. — J W P

Miniatures of the month November

Who can enter the competition

Everyone! Yes, that’s true. Have you ever considered competing and trying your skills with other great painters? This is a great opportunity. :) It’s all very simple – just log into our forum and post pictures of your miniatures. They will automatically take part in next month voting.

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 December. 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 and will take part in voting “Miniature of the Year 2012″. 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!


This month’s winner is Corvus and honorable mentions go to JerzyK and Zuntar. Congratulations, guys!


  1. I love the fact that there are 2 Dark Vengeance Librarians this month and they are both such different takes on the same mini. Also, those RT era Imperial Fists? Totally boss! Great entries everyone!

  2. @Zab: Yes, those Imperial Fist from Pandadosmares are from the Rogue Trader era :)
