Welcome to the Hero Forge Miniature Masterpiece Countdown.
Every day I post a miniature that exemplifies a designer’s use of at least one of my critical design principles: technical skill with the tools, innovative thinking, and expression of theme or subject matter.
At the end of the week, I post the number 1 Miniature Masterpiece. This mini demonstrates the designer’s ability to employ all 3 creative elements in their work.
After 7 weeks, all the winners of the countdown are placed on a single list, and you vote for your number 1 miniature.
Who will be the season 2 All-Star?
Number 6 on the countdown is another Miniature Masterpiece that exemplifies what technical skill looks like in the Hero Forge platform. This mini is straightforward and to the point, but is still so striking. I felt as though the “Paladin of the Sacred Flame” could be a token in an official publication or game release.
The color really sold me on this one. The metal polish gives the character the gleaming sparkle you would expect from a Paladin. Toastybuns designed a miniature that I would employ in a game. Which is why he ranked in at number 6 on this week’s countdown.
(PS. I couldn’t stop laughing after I read the designer’s pseudo-name.)
