Word Bearer Mini bust
Games Workshop, 32mm
conversion, painting

Via my Patreon the actual, quarterly art skill improvement challenge is about the creation of a tiny miniature bust in 32mm from a regular miniature. The goal is to achieve a look of a large bust with the features of pose and character. I got so inspired myself that I had a go on this Chaos Space Marine from the Chapter of the "Word Bearers". Full WIP log on my Patreon.

This was so much fun. It will take part in the challenge in 'out of competition' and as I am already recieving the first entries I can tell you this is gonna be epic. The challenge ends end of June. Stay tuned!

Keep on happy painting!

    It was a pleasure to see you build it . The challenge pushed me and my partner Eszter out of our comfort zone. We will be doing a lot more creative things and converting more in the future.
