Thoughts from the design team behind the art and sculpts wanted

Recommended Posts

With Proken Promises there was a shift in the generaI design of the artwork IMO. And with the newer previews I there's a shift in the design too.

I'm mostly a display painter and therefore very interested in all aspects of miniature art. And I'm a gamer too and love inside views of the company and its thoughts about the game. In addition to that I'm not sure how much I like the IMO new style, but maybe I can get easier used to it when I know the ideas behind the new design. I would soo much like to be taken on the journey.

So my question is: are there interwies with the design team about Wyrds art or other sources? If not, why not let some of your artist give interviews to some of the podcasts out there?

 

So what I'm intereseted in:

  • was there a shift in miniature design
  • if so, why? What is the goal?
  • and even if not: what are thoughts behind all the design*?

*) One thing I'm always wondering is why Wyrd's miniatures are so much fun to paint. I paint miniatures from different companies but Wyrds miniatures are especially much fun. And I'm always wondering but cannot put my finger on it why. So any insight would be very much appreciated.

I enjoy painting M2E minis because they are very dynamic and highly readable. (I don't have to spend my time figuring out what I am painting as I have to do for other ranges).

They don't have the mass of accessories, trinkets... that pollute the readability of the mini sculpts from other ranges (especially PP).

The design is simple yet elegant and the lights and shadows + focus points of each miniature come naturally to the painter. Wide surfaces allow for very smootth brush movements & blending (However, they require a bit of skill to paint because of those wide surfaces).

The scale is also quite nice overall as the minis are not as bulky as some other miniature ranges.

Wyrd M2E minis were the most enjoyable painting experience I have had during my 25 years as a hobbyist. For that I am gratefull to the artistic team of pre-Wave 5 Malifaux.
