The number two figure on this week’s Hero Forge Miniature Masterpiece Countdown offers several examples of what innovative work looks like. Obviously, the hovering dice is a manipulation of the tools in order to achieve an effect outside of what the platform is initially designed for. This is an example of thinking outside the box.
However, in addition to pushing the boundaries of what can be done with the tools at hand, KGeesus employs a typically underutilized effect to its maximum potential. Within the Hero Forge public library, you rarely see the lighting tool employed.
To give the dice and the figure a magical aura, KGeesus masterfully situated a point of light colored to match the runes on the dice. This small detail produces a large effect on the overall quality of the figure. That’s why Jhosh made it into the number 2 spot on this week’s countdown.
