Skulls for the Skull Mountain! This is the first really big miniature I’ve painted, Mierce Miniatures’ Blood Maw, Vore. I had planned to enter this into the 2017 summer painting competition on r/minipainting. The theme was ‘violence’ – or to be more precise:
VIOLENCE! Violence, the theme is violence, violence, violence, violence. Your miniatures should be angry, mad, bloody, gory, violent and ready to fight!
This seemed like the perfect mini for the task, but I overestimated my ability to complete a big project in a short time, and I’ve only just finished this week.
A couple of weeks ago Mierce Miniatures had a two for one sale on monsters. They’re big, they’re amazingly detailed and full of character, and they’re produced by an independent British company. Consequently they’re also quite expensive at regular retail price – the smaller monsters start at around £30.00 but the really big guys are significantly more, so a two-for-one offer is a rare opportunity. So even though I definitely don’t have time to take on any new projects, I bought four of the medium-to-large sized monsters from their ‘Darklands’ range – a bargain, and at the speed I paint enough to keep me going for a few months or more.
