Impact Miniatures Ice Hockey Miniature

I painted up one of Impact Miniatures ice hockey miniatures for a gift for Christmas. My boss loves the Pittsburgh Penguins so I when I saw that Impact was making a line of  hockey miniatures I had to jump on it. So I joined Kickstarter and backed their project which was funded and orders fulfilled in plenty of time for Christmas. I got to work on paint scheme which was easy as it consisted of the Penguins home uniform.

The freehand on the uniform was quite the challenge to paint small enough on the miniature yet still needed to look realistic to the real uniform. I think overall I succeeded with getting him to look correct. I enjoyed painting him up and after taking the pictures noticed a few areas I touched up before giving him away.

The best part was seeing the reaction of my fellow coworkers as they had never seen anything I painted in person, and pictures do not really show the scale or the detail put into miniatures. I hope to paint another one I may keep for my own collection in the future but for now I have the photos to remember this by.
