There’s quite a few new additions to the Stephanie Law Masterwork collection from Dark Sword Miniatures, eighteen of them in fact. We’ve collected them all here for you although if you want to see more you can head on over to their store page…
The first big one is The Lovers which you can see above. This is just in time for Valentines day and if you were so inclined you could pick this up and paint it for your significant other. A lot of these Masterworks aren’t typical wargaming fare but the quality of the sculpting is so good you have to take a closer look…
The focus is certainly on the fairy tale and the mythological with a lot of different female characters from the classical period as well as those more recent in the grand scheme of things. For a painter this should give you a good chance to learn about painting different skin tones and plenty of work on fabric.
A lot of the painting on these has been done to give it a very warm tone and feel but it would be interesting to see what the miniatures looked like with a more eerie and dark fairy tale design. I know that we get a lot of that elsewhere in the hobby but it would be interesting to see the Queen of Hearts or Tam Lin for example painted in a way that betrays a more dark and twisted natural state.
What do you think?
