Today I introduce to you all a new section for a new year!
Welcome to Retrospecter! The section in which we dive back into the marvels of the past...
Let's go back into the past and check out the year 2011!
2011 was the first year of existance of our beloved monthly Do Not Miss section, and it was filled with awesome miniatures, paintjobs, sculptures, releases, new ideas... I wanted to share with you guys the best of the best that we could find in that great year. It was very difficult to choose the best stuff from the neverending list of Do Not Miss in 2011, but here it is.
- Sgt. Connor Serpertan HI, Elías Alonso: Andrea was starting to develop their new range of Sci-Fi miniatures, and Elías Alonso was already showing his amazing skills. I'm sure you remember this "sort of" Space Marine, right?
- Kraken Priestess Winner of Crystal Brush 2011 by Mrika: Beautiful and controversial at the same time, this awesome miniature won the $10k prize in the first Crystal Brush ever to be made.
- Red Skull by Paul Deheleanu (Creation Process): Paul is an amazing sculptor, and this kit for Knightmodels has won its place in my top Do Not Miss of 2011.
- Norse Lord (Andrea Miniatures) by Joaquin Palacios: The talent of Joaquín is out of this world. I'm still in love with the vikings that Joaquin made for Andrea Miniatures in 2011.
- Dance Morko Dance by Alfonso Giraldes and Diego Esteban: Mindfishers was born when these two great artists joined forces, and when that happens, miniatures like this one are created. Second runner up prize in Crystal Brush 2011.
- Frutti di Mare by Robert aka Muhani: Robert from Massive Voodoo completed this amazing diorama which started with a simple idea for Smaulg being a captain of a boat an ended in this massive diorama (not voodoo this time).
- The Return of the Warlord by Matt Cexwish: Matt Cexwish has always been very well known for his amazing ideas, his way of thinking out of the box and bringing us new stuff to the painting world. This was the diorama that got him the Slayersword in 2011.
- The Getaway by Piquifl and Arsies: The great work between Arsies and Piquifl resulted in this great scratch built miniature. What an awesome and laborious work which we could have seen live in the World Expo 2011.
Awesome stuff don't you think? What a great year that was!
