Nessus, Herald of Death by Aradia Miniatures

In May 2017 Aradia Miniatures ran a Kickstarter for the characters from Dante’s Divine Comedy. It funded in just 2 hours!

After the Kickstarter had fulfilled Aradia began to release the miniatures through their store and one of the wave 2 kits in the Divine Comedy range is Nessus.

Eldareon from Black Crow Miniatures

Back in 2014, Black Crow Miniatures released their first creation on the miniature community which was well received as being a really high quality product.

To date they have eighteen releases (yes; two of them were different versions of previous releases) and majority have come from concept art by Guillermo González.

Eldareon marks the second time Edgar Ramos has been given sculpting duties and if you've seen his previous Wraith I'm sure you can understand why. Especially as it has sold out multiple times.

Perseus from Fan Art Models

Fan Art Models launched in 2017 and have built up a current range of thirteen busts. One of just a few companies I can think of coming out of Russia but they are available in a variety of stores around the world.

I decided to take a look over their Perseus bust as the character and the creature, Medusa has always been one I have heard of thanks to the old Ray Harryhausen 'Clash of the Titans' film.

Avian the Forest Witch from Massive Miniatures

Massive Miniatures released a couple of busts at Scale Model Challenge 2019. I took a good look over 'A Moment of Serenity' a few weeks ago, but now I'll have a go over 'Avian the Forest Witch'.

In true Massive Miniatures style this bust has been sculpted by someone different to previous releases with Stanislav Che creating the digital sculpture. This is someone I've not come across before.
