  • AMotW: Anime School Girl with Hamster Gun By thunderboltmountain

    Since the days of the Barbie Space Marine there hasn’t been a figure on CMoN quite so humorous and original as this week’s showcase. As the miniature’s description says, it is an Anime School girl toting a hamster gun, sculpted by Tom Meier (though it is a change of pace from his usual subject matter).

    To capture emotion with a miniature, despite what the rest of the scene is about (be it a fight to the death or a day at the Rodent Shooting Range), is what defines the ability of an artist. It can be argued that painting to a piece so it exudes some sort of emotion isn’t as difficult as sculpting angst-ridden or jovial faces (and the model’s stance for that matter).

    Either way, it is unavoidable not to stare in awe as I examine this piece. Aside from the hilarity, the absolute concentration and hate seen in the School Girl’s eyes is unmistakably brilliant. This only reinforces the bizarreness of the piece as the seriousness of the School Girl creates a strange harmony with the wildly different concept of a Hamster Gun.

    The level of sculpting overwhelms the comedic nature of the piece, the shirt cuffs, the flowing skirt, and the fine detail of each little hamster and the shoes. There is dynamism in the pose and I personally cannot wait to see this painted. As many, many comments made on CMoN sculpts say, “Paint it! Paint it now!”

    AMotW: Anime School Girl with Hamster Gun By thunderboltmountain receives 9.1/10.

The display base has a scrolled edge, features institutional style tile flooring, her satchel thrown to the floor with her school book and spiral bound notebook falling out as well he pouch of Hamster feed with kernels strewn about the floor. This is a simply amaing bonus for this miniature!
