  1. 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_
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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:
  5. 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?
  6. 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,
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. Ax Factions new release in series 3, "The Hunted", the Minotaur! Definitely a different take on the Minotaur with the less bovine face, but it still looks the part. Alternately, I could see one painted up as a devil of some sort... probably smashing my Pathfinder party to death. Probably going on my "get list".
  13. Here's the third mini I painted from my Bones 2 box. I really liked the pose and sculpt of this mini, so that's why I decided to paint him up next. I don't think i'll ever use him in my D&D games, but damn he looks cool.
  14. I will update with better pics later this one is just a junk one quick with my phone. Bones Minotaur and Skeletal Archers for the Resolutionary Challenge Alright some better pics. I say this often but if you are looking for awesome paint job to a professional contest quality don't look here. I love those minis and those painters are awesome but it's not me right now. I haven't upped my game to that level and haven't felt a need to since really all I am going to do is play with my minis in a D&D game anyway (Hopefully if I can find players someday), so I am strictly a tabletop
  15. So I keep keep making minis for my players. This one is currently a Level 6 (Champion tier) Minotaur monk in a 13th age game He has died once, lost a finger to frostbite, and seen 0 hp at least 1 in 3 sessions. Two sessions ago he got someone to carve runes of healing in his horns. They seem to be helping. His bracers are magical, and he mentioned he wanted some kind of brass knuckle attachment. Presenting Hal Ford - Priest of Judas. (yes the player is a metalhead) This figure has some wicked mold lines - If I can still see them I may just paint them as scars. unrela
  16. Two nights in so far, from bare unwashed Bones to some base earth colors and inks on some of our barbaric friends; Giants, Bugbears, and Minotaurs (oh my!)
  17. I am working on FOUR minotaurs, two of the normal Crazed Minotaur Cultists, and one of the evil Empire's ancient Beastman/Minotaur champions. This was intended as a quick, tabletop job. I'm happy with him, and he looks good on a table, so I'm calling him done.
  18. Hello all. The mister challenged me to start posting some of the stuff I've painted in show-off, in hopes of getting more feedback and working towards becoming a better painter. This is the bones minotaur, painted recently just as something fun and inbetween some other minis that had to be painted. The white stuff in his mane showed up when I clear coated and I didn't notice it until I took the pictures. I've since gone over that again, not sure if the paint disappeared or if that was some goopy leftover from the clear coat. Anyways, comments and criticism would be much appreciated and tha
  19. Yet again, I am never happy with my photography. I don't know why but I no longer seem able to get decent pictures. Not sure if it's the camera, or the operator. As always, have a look, please give feedback, and especially any tips to help me get better. Still here they are. Starting with the grave digger. Cash made this look so easy. Me....I made this look so...something. Next we have Arthrand Nightblade. Elven ranger. I am really happy with this guys paint job, again, not so much with the picture. And with Arthrand, a nice elven hunting cat. Not my best work, but tablet
  20. HI guys, This is my first post. My name is Greg and I'm from San Diego California. I got into painting miniatures about 6 months ago when I started buying citadel paint for custom Marvel Legends and Dios. I saw so many cool sculptures in the gaming shop, that I couldn't resist. Thanks for looking! Here are my first attempts More Pics here http://s148.photobucket.com/user/illmindset/slideshow/Reaper%20Miniatures
  21. Started working on two more mini's... Stone worm and Minotaur. Primed and basecoat started
  22. This is an old one I have from Ral Partha. The sword is MIA from the move but I am sure I can find it. I did a fire brand. Iron Wind Metals has the mold now. The beads on the bottom were a suggestion from a player. It represents a magical treasure from within a labyrinth or something. They do have a neat sheen to them. I might go back and add some gold nuggets, etc.
  23. Finally got the minotaur finished. This one took me a long time as I haven't had a lot of opportunities to paint recently (hooray for jury duty and 3 week trial...) In addition, after I was unhappy with the metallics on my bugbear, I figured it was time to try NMM. I'm very happy with the steel NMM, particularly on the axe. I did the cleaver first, and I could already tell I was improving when I worked on the axe. I think the gold trim didn't work as well, although it still looks good enough to sell the effect. This guy is a monster for mold lines. I thought
  24. Hi there, so I have happily come to peace with the understanding that I will be the last human on the face of the earth to receive the Kickstarter stuff, and while waiting for those four paint sets I can just keep using craft paint. Actually, it would be great if the actual last person got a note in their box saying they were last, wouldn't it? Meanwhile, this minotaur is not as good as others. Please ignore the terrible attempt at NMM. Also, the join lines which I didn't fix. Also, the mold lines I missed. Cheers!
  25. Well, might as well post some of my best stuff. and Sheep-Thing:P Most of my Minis that I'm proud of are ones that I've Mangled...I mean Modified. So here goes nothing... Note: I'm just posting one Pic per Mini so I do not Overload anyones Inter-Webs, hopefully. You can find more pics of each in my PhotoBucket Album linked in my Sig. So that was Sheep-Thing. Made from a couple of DDMs and some fuzzy cotton sheet thing. Was inspired by a player in the Local Encounters group. Her PC was a Tiefling Fire Elementalist that had refluffed her powers as being originating from a Deformed,
