My first ever miniature I designed (that was accepted) was the Thor II. I actually went above and beyond and provided two alternate configs as well, the A and the B, and some of the other alt configs should be really easy to mod with the other parts between those three configs. Take a look:
Now you can actually buy these minis out on IWMs website (link, link, and link) or you can choose your favorite 3rd party seller. I am particularly fond of Ares Miniatures and Games as a seller as they are good for shipping and communication, especially if you are on facebook.
Now, I've gone on to do many, many more minis, so I am just going to over a few more, and then I'll make a future post on some of the other official IWM minis I've done.
The next miniature I worked on was one that took almost the longest to release, and that was the Arion Quadvee. For those of you unfamiliar, the Quadvee is a bit of a transformer that can switch from a Quad 'Mech to a vehicle and back. They are heavy and relatively inefficient in terms of the actual game, but man do they have some cool aesthetics. Take a look at this thing:
Now, despite it's looks, there were several visual paradoxes that I had to clear up when making the mini. You will notice the longer leg limbs and a different way the feet are positioned in the tank mode. But take a look!
The last thing you'll notice about this mini is that you can make both configs from a single blister pack. This necessitated a lot of pieces and if I had to do it again, it would be a much simpler miniature. Live and learn I guess. This was my second mini ever, and I've learned a lot in the intervening years.
Thanks for reading! In part two, we'll look at the Arctic Wolf II and the Chimera Resculpt!
