  1. Black Tree Design - Minotaurs

    These have been in my collection for a considerable time. I finally felt mooved to slap some paint on them.
  2. Okay, I couldn't really resist the silly title that had a touch of alliteration... Guess it's a thing for me or something. Anyways, I figured I'd want to do up a long-term WIP thread featuring a themed army that has the goal of being made mostly of Reaper miniatures... That and hey, I like gnolls and minotaurs, so... Why no! Not quite certain what the precise theme is just yet, but we'll roll with "spots and stripes are awesome, as is a love for axes and mythology in general" as the starter of it all. Initially, this army will be made mostly (if not all) with Bones figures, but eventually metal minis will find their way in. Bones are rather convenient with their pricing, and there is a wide selection on offer! It's also something to paint other than my various Games Workshop armies (Tau, Catachans, a scattered amount of Space Marines, a few Tyranids (for now), Skaven, as well as (fantasy) Orcs, although I have nowhere near as many greenskins), and my main focus is purely on fun, with fluff to come as things go. That and I very much so plan on spending a good amount of time on each mini, not just for detail, but to improve my own skills in general. One could potentially argue that I intend on making these guys more of my "showpieces", which is something I don't mind the thought of at all I like how @Glitterwolf formats their posts, so... I'm thiefing parts of it, as it's a nice formatting, and of course provides a reasonable amount of detail for it all, so why not Pictures were taken with my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) because at the time I didn't quite feel like messing around with my G85 - or something to that effect ~_^ First and foremost, we have double trouble with a handsome hunk, I mean a minotaur who means business! 77012 Gnoll Warrior, 77013 Minotaur, and 77236 Bloodmane. White bones doesn't quite look appropriate in my eyes as it's "naked", so let's fix that... ^Both gnolls now have primer on them... And of course the couple of mold lines I missed are blatantly visible... Not that I mind, it's always nice to find them NOW other than a few hours into things... I'm planning on going somewhat darker for their fur, hence why the medium-ish grey priming job. Paint used: 09108 Brush-on Primer 09065 Grey Liner Two parts primer, three parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow. ^Not to be outdone, our fearless minotaur jumps into the fray as well, although somewhat lighter than the gnolls. Something about how a fox is thinking about going with a more "traditional" medium brown. Would have used brown liner, but, uhm, don't have that, so grey liner it is. Paint used: 09108 Brush-on Primer 09065 Grey Liner Three parts primer, two parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow. ^And since I just had to have him on my last order, here we have most of what I'll call our first leader, or even general of it all, 77376 Minotaur Demon Lord, partially test-fit. I ran out of time to get the mold lines on the other six parts, but I'll be working on that today. Goal is to have him assembled today, and quite possibly primered as well. I'm not quite certain as to precisely what colour I'll be going with on him, but for some reason an almost "aflame" reddish-coppery-orange with hints of brown in it come to mind.
  3. Lidless Eye Hobbies: Castle Stoneskull

    I hadn't even realized when I began on these three that they were all from the "Castle Stoneskull" expansion from Bones III. It was a great set for adding to the random encounters for an RPG. These guys may represent some of the high-level dangers that one could encounter while dungeoneering in Castle Stoneskull! The Behir. I've been wanting one since a buddy pulled one from the first Huge set of D&D prepaints. They even show up in Pathfinder's "Reign of Winter" and D&D 5E's "Storm King's Thunder", if only I had had this guy in time for those campaigns! Brain-in-a-Jar. While I was hoping this would be a human brain, it's still a really cool design. I wonder why the legs are traditional bendy bones instead of the hard plastic that makes up the rest of the mini (minus the squishy brain), though. The mighty Minotaur! Bones has a lot of representations for Minotaurs now, almost as many as Orcs or Goblins. There's the one from pre-Kickstarter, 2 adventurers in Bones II, and the whole set of Minitaurs coming in Bones IV! Plus all the Beastmen if you want to count them, I've seen them used as medium Minotaur PCs enough times. This guy is my favorite, though. Must be the Gladiator armor.
  4. Ok, this isn't a New year's resolution ( I don't make those), but I have decided that I need to get over the "I'm not good enough" thing and try to push myself to paint all those figures that I've been saving for 'some day'. That day is NOW. I grabbed this figure during a Black Friday sale for something like 4 or 5 bucks. Depending on where you get it from, it's usually more like 30. It's 28mm scale, but it stands pretty tall; I'm guessing it's 54mm tall or thereabouts. I'll get a proper picture with Sir Forscale a little bit later on. I'd like you to help push me to do my absolute best with this guy, please. If you think something looks good, cool, tell me that. By the same token, if you think something doesn't look good, tell me that, too. I want you guys to 'break out the red pen' as Cyradis would say. For reference, this is the figure I'm talking about (picture from the WWW, not my figure).
  5. Edit - project is now live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/heroines-in-sensible-shoes-3-miniatures-for-rpgs Starting on Monday, for probably 14 days, Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3 - Not every heroine is human. Teaser pic, as there's only five minis sculpted so far! I'll be sculpting at least 7 more throughout the project, taking input and suggestions from the backers... So far, there's a firbolg druid, tabaxi and kenku rogues, a minotaur barbarian, and a hobgoblin eldritch knight. After consulting with our previous backers, the the most popular suggestions are - another tabaxi, probably either a monk or wizard; a tiefling wizard, and a tiefling paladin or cleric; another kenku (probably a magic user of some sort); a dragonborn paladin; a tortle (no ideas on class or equipment yet!); and finally a human barbarian, heavy, powerful build, but not lean. I'm open to suggestions though, so if you have any, please let me know! cheers Michael
  6. Step 0 Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^ This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square. He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.
  7. 77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian

    On my birthday last week I spent the whole day playing PF and painting. I speed-painted this guy:
  8. 77376: Minotaur Demon Lord

    Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection... The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts." This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result! If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum. Cheers! -E.E.
  9. 77376: Minotaur Demon Lord (WIP)

    So, this Minotaur fellow has been staring at me in pieces for a while now. I've decided the time has come to get painting, and while I'm at it, make my first ever WIP post. Because in the words of the great Devo: "When a demon miniature comes along, you must WIP it!" End goal: mini to be used in my D&D campaign. He doesn't need to be display quality, but I'll still welcome your tips and suggestions to improve my work. So far I've just put down some brown liner and temporarily stuck it together to make sure everything is on track. Currently mixing up colours for the base coat... More soon! -E.E.
  10. bones III Minotaur Skeleton

    So finally go done sorting out my box of bones 3 and decided to do the minotaur skelly to break the seal. I really the undying lords set. Such fun to paint and fairly easy for a newb like myself. As always would love to hear constructive criticism. AJ AJ
  11. These are my players for Chaos, in Blood Bowl. The Minotaur/Ogre and daemonettes, are from GW, and the Warriors are a mix of parts from GW, and Avatars of War.
  12. A little something I picked up from my FLGS's discount bin; this 54mm scale mummified minotaur comes with a choice of horns and pole-cleavers to attach to an otherwise simple assembly. Here are the parts laid out before priming. I still struggle to decide which horns and weapon to build him with. Using one means not using the other, after all, but I figure they'll find another place to go eventually.
  13. 77255 Bronzeheart, Minotaur Hero

    Moo.
  14. Reaper Minotaur (The Purple Buffalo)

    Ok, here's the latest work I have done. I got the excellent Reaper Bones Minotaur miniature, and it took me a bit of thinking as to how best to paint him up, it's an awesome miniature and I really wanted to do it justice.. Then I watched The Neverending Story, and what caught my attention was Atreyu talking about hunting the purple Buffalo, it gave me the spark of an idea, so I looked on google for images of a purple buffalo for inspiration.. I found the following image, and I was well and truly inspired http://www.tracyrosemoyers.com/html/p7IGM_images/fullsize/Purple_Buffalo-24x27-$1095_fs.jpg Two days later, and I have finished painting the miniature, and here are the pictures! Comments and advice are always welcome! :)
  15. Bones Minotaur conversion [77013]

    i start from this excellent Minotaur : to get this fighting monster, angry and very furious ! The greeks are Foundry ones : A Spartan at rest (now as a victim of a Minotaur's strong blow), a dead light infantry (crush under the Minotaur's foot) and a light pestast (held by the arm) Hope you'll like this action.
  16. Another batch of Talisman mins

    Painted a new trio of Talisman minis today, plus I had one left from a couple weeks ago. The trio are from the Dragon expansion, and I was racing through them so we can use them this weekend. First up is the Fire Wizard: His draconic hide cloak turned out great, though it doesn't look so good in the pics. His fireball looks serviceable, though it could obviously use more work. Next is the Dragon Hunter: I didn't even try to do facial features due to time constraints. I usually struggle with them, especially eyes, and end up redoing them several times. And with these smaller scale, truer scale minis, eyes are really tough for me. I also struggle to get good pictures. I included two shots of his front, the actual mini is somewhere in between, and has better detail on the dragon scales. The back of his trousers are a good example of the oddity of the photography. The seat, thigh and calf are all the same shade, but a trick of the lighting makes it look like the thigh is a much darker shade. Third is the Minotaur: His pictures really don't do him justice, I think he turned out really well. I matched the card art colours quite closely, and he has different coloured straps, loincloth etc. Unfortunately it didn't photograph well at all. His snout doesn't even really look pink. Here is a shot of the trio: Finally the left over Rogue, who I already played in a game last weekend, and even managed to pull out the win: And a comparison shot with her and the little highlander:
  17. Bull

    I have a lot of minotaurs. I share them with you here. You can share yours too if you like. This one is big, 50mm toe to brow, nearly 100mm total height. Believed to be from Games Workshop in the '90s. Base is hand-built from wood, sand, and acrylic gel. I meant for the color to resemble a black Angus bull, but it turned out more like a gorilla. WIP More angles:
  18. Big Minotaur

    So there's this minotaur, y'see. He's about 50mm tall from toe to brow, 93mm overall without the base. I'm not sure of the figure's origins, but I suspect it's a Games Workshop piece from the chaos arrows on the belt. It came without a base, and the feet were angled out-of-line with eachother, so I constructed one of some thin craft plywood squares and glued sand on top of that. I've been trying to color it as a black Angus bull, but it's really hard to express contour shading on a deep glossy black. Any recommendations?
  19. Minotaur de Leche

    I got this minotaur from a game a while back... don't know which game, as I got the game when I was 10, and I'm 30 now... But alas - I now have the skill to try to paint the figures. My father (as well as apparently the rest of the world) paints minotaur only one color it seems; brown. Why? He's a cow-man... let's make him... cow-colored! Introducing the Minotaur de Leche! Next, I'll try to paint my other minotaur like a Brahman bull (silvery white with a grey "siamese" style nose). Also; please ignore the "cobblestone" on the base... I attempted to paint it like cobblestone, which is CLEARLY not my strong suit... Next, I'll actually cobble STONE onto the base. Take that, horrible painting skills!
  20. 77251: Bloodhoof, Minotaur Barbarian

    Here is the first of the two minis I entered into the painting contest at gencon This was my first attempt at greenstuffing a base and I'm fairly happy with it. Unfortunately I failed to get all the mold lines off of this guy as I spotted the on the top of his axe too late. I also painted the other minotaur from the set but he didn't get quite finished in time. I'll likely post him soon as he is almost done. Of the two though I like this one the most. Still trying to figure out the best way to take pictures and this guy was being a real elf about it for some reason. Hopefully some of these look ok.
  21. A conversion I whipped up at Reapercon this year. WIP thread is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/61767-bones-minotaur-with-dragon-arm-conversion/ This is my first time using GS to actually sculpt something (scales on his left shoulder, beard, and mane/hair) and not just fill gaps. I think it turned out fairly well. Front: Back: Ub3r_Nerd suggesting a purplish glaze along the join of the skin and scales. I think I might have overdone it. Did I? Left: Right: I just noticed that spot of paint on his finger; this is after looking the whole thing over to find anything that needed fixing before I called it 'done'. It's fixed now. Close up: I managed to do some decent looking eyes. I intentionally went for the slightly 'bug-eyed' look on him; I figure he's out of his mind with rage over the changes racking his body. I mean, growing a dragon arm has gotta be painful, right? C&C is always appreciated.
  22. Hi all, I like to paint my minis in batch, so I tackled recently all the "Beast Mode!" section of the Bones 2 Core set. I'm ultimately planning to use them as part of my Beastmen warband for Mordheim. BloodHoof, the Minotaur Barbarian is one of my favorite sculpt among these. Here he just chopped his way through a High Elf. The Beastmen warriors weren't painted that well (and I didn't clean up enough some massive mold lines), so they don't deserve their stand-alone shots. But they look nice coming out of the woods. The Beastman champion is really massive. It looks like he could hack a minotaur in half. BronzeHeart, the Minotaur hero. With his nice fitted armour and pretty axe, he doesn't fit too well with my idea of Minotaurs (blood thirsty savage beasts...). But fun to paint nevertheless. And a little group shot C&C welcome
  23. 77013: Red Bull

    Sadly no wings. This one's been sitting in my prepped-but-not-painted pile for a while now, for lack of a good metallic bronze to use... what I ended up using was PearlEx Super Bronze, applied with some Future. Snow is a pretty unconventional base for a minotaur, I think, but I had some snow flock sitting around I wanted to try. Crits and comments appreciated!
  24. This has taken me a while to get done as poor Yera had at least one bath in simply green when the skin tone did not turn out like I wanted. So with no fanfare I give you Yera the Water Buffalo Minotaur! Sculpted by Jaso Wiebe I suspect I need another matte coat. Comments / suggestions are welcome. I can always improve with help!
