Adding to their Protagonist Archive collection which will soon be on Kickstarter the folks behind Fragged Empire have shown off another miniature, Ares “Maximus” Vespillo. If you’ve kept an eye on the video game Overwatch this chap brings a smile to the face…
This chap who appears to have a bit of the ape about him reminds me of Winston from Overwatch. I like the idea that he is a gentle giant who goes into a bit of a rage when he’s fighting. You can see the model from more angles below and the artwork he’s based on too.
The model is basically a carbon copy (in render form at least) of the artwork which is rare to see considering most of the time it only forms the basis of the sculpt. In this case it’s awesome to see the faithful transition as the artwork is beautiful.
What do you think?
