Miniature Masterpiece Countdown – #3

Celestial by Adventure Wonder Works

This magnificent Hero Forge Miniature Masterpiece was crafted by the talented designer going by the pen name Adventure Wonder Works.

This striking figure exemplifies all 3 of the criteria that I use when determining which figures will make the countdown. This character clearly comes from an otherworldly plane of existence. Its power and radiance demonstrates the designer’s ability to express a theme in their work. This isn’t simply a heavenly angel. It’s an angel of war and power.

The rich gold of the wings in the transparent coloration of the twin crescent moon halo can only be achieved through time-consuming and deliberate manipulation of the color palette. This designer didn’t just drop some colors in, they CHOSE the colors. And they chose well!

And finally, Adventure Wonder Works demonstrates their ability to think outside the box when manipulating a pair of sword assets (the crescent moon swords) to create an otherworldly and ethereal halo. The crescent moons weren’t meant to be used in this manner, but they were used well.

All three of these factors is why “Celestial” made it onto this week’s Hero Forge Miniature Masterpiece Countdown.
