  1. And off he goes to his new owner, @muddy.
  2. The same can be said for pretty much any playable race that's kind of pigeon-holed into their preferred class, miniature-wise as well as in games. I have used Grippli as a playable race in my campaigns for 30+ years and it took Mike at Stonehaven to finally make a variety of them. I have them all. Assuming there were any available anywhere before that. Keep pushing your interest. Sculptors and manufacturers take notice if people start to ask for stuff repeatedly and from several sources. Just look at all of the wonderful stuff that has come from the Bones Request Thread here. Some of it isn't just the miniature subject either. They've created sharper, harder plastics for weapons and other conversions, a myriad of colors for the plastic to represent various elements and forces, and much more, just from asking their user-base for suggestions.

    Thrym's Show Off List

    Non-Reaper Show Offs: Spellcrow Miniatures Minotaur (Conversion to Monk - Buddy's PC )
  4. PRESENTS Spellcrow Miniatures MINOTAUR CONVERSION to MONK SPCM2001 > Designed and Sculpted by Marek Rurarz The WIP for this Conversion and Paint Job As I mentioned in the WIP, my buddy, @muddy, likes Minotaurs for his PCs. This time he wanted at Monk for the 5E campaign he's currently participating in. He explicitly wanted a black-horned version of a red Texas Longhorn. I pulled out my reds and decided on Reaper Auburn Shadow as the base color for this guy. I used Reaper Red Liner as the shadow and Reaper NNM Tarnished Copper as the Highlight. The colors are subtle shifts and a little hard to make out in photos. He's got a little flare in the bracers and belt as well as the mildly glowing skull swinging from his necklace. He used to have two battleaxes and his horns were a smidge longer and less "Longhorn" looking. The axes came off easily and I replaced the space with his hand bands ala-Karnak from Marvel's Inhumans. I gave him the necklace to imply movement as if he might be mid-spin. The skull might have a mind of its own when it comes to his defense. Enjoy! I'll be packing it up soon to ship to Muddy.
  5. Nearing completion. Doing some clean up and have to do the horns, hooves, necklaces beads and hand bands. The base is pretty much all set. Just need to paint the very bottom Reaper Solid Black as well. Stay tuned and Enjoy!
  6. The images I post are cropped and slightly auto color corrected so the white might be blown out a bit. I usually shoot something with white in the background but away from the mini so I can crop it out. Vallejo Stencil is barely off-white. I use it as my white frequently to avoid pure whites. Things are seldom pure white. Highlights on items hit pure white on my stuff and it makes things pop more when I do use it. Latest... Also, they weren't staying white. They are now a green glow color and the skull is a red glow color with a white "mask". Still have to do the same thing on the belt though I might use a different color base than Spruce Green. Green glow is Reaper Dungeon Slime and Red glow is Reaper Red Neon Glow. Base was painted Reaper Carbon Grey and Reaper Dungeon Grey by applying water to the whole surface and then adding the colors to the water and mixing it a bit. Creates a nice natural sediment look. Stay tuned and Enjoy!
  7. Painted the bracers and the loincloth. The green is Reaper Spruce. White is Vallejo Stencil.
  8. Well, after a short break and an actual break, I've completed his skin mid-tone and applied Vallejo Stencil to his bracer to see where the filigree is and use it to brighten the work. I also applied the same white to his teeth and eyes. I said break because he is resin and he hit the ground. Broke his right arm at the elbow. He also dislocated his right horn and snapped it in half. Repairs involved creating a brown-aluminum putty socket to pin his arm back on, super glue, pinning the horn pieces together and into his head, sanding and Squadron white putty to fill spaces. He's nearly good as new and ready for more. Stay tuned and enjoy!
  9. Going for a ride. Better view of the skull.
  10. Added the skull at the end on the loop. Shadow coated the fur. He'll be sort of a red-furred minotaur with a black mane and tufts when I am done.
