Here are some pictures of a minotaur I made for one of my Blood Bowl teams. He's pretty big for the game, but reposing the plastic minotaur was a whole lot of fun.
The colors match the other minis on the team. Here he is:

I do like a Bloodbowl figure that I haven't seen before : )

 

One of these days I'll have to post the team I painted about 20 years back... >.>

I still need to paint my boxed set :(

 

I really do intend to paint at least a couple soonish* to work out colors for Dreadball orcs and corp.

 

 

*hah

When painted in the way you are capable of, these models throw off their bad reputation. Nicely done.

 

Thanks. I rather like painting up classic minis that are spoken of with distain. I've been hoping to find an old Nagash mini to see what I could do with it.

 

He's made from one of Citadel's plastic minotaurs for their Beastmen line (I'm not sure if they've replaced them with newer, bigger minotaurs yet...).

 

They don't have a good reputation for anatomy- since their muscles have their own set of muscles on them. Still, he was pretty nice to work from, and it wasn't too hard to create a dramatic pose.

I would not want to see that coming down the pitch at my team! I actually quite like the plastic minotaurs; they just need a nice paintjob to look good and yours are fantastic.

Though I think if I were going to add a minotaur to my Chaos team, I'd wait for that new Bones minotaur that's coming.

Ok, you do have a point. The studio paintjob on those minotaurs emphasizes the flaws, and doesn't give you much else to see.

      Finally I finished my conversion of Nienna Elfen Ranger. I pretty much changed every aspect of the original mini.
       
      New things attempted: Cloth textures and freckles.
       
      C&C very welcome.
       
      Areas to improve: Blends (smoother is always better), finer texture patterns, sculpt could be a little cleaner in some places.

      Presenting The Bride of Nurgle, the leader of the Nurgle warband in the game Warhammer:- Underworlds by Games Workshop.
       
      I don't usually post my Underworlds stuff here, but I felt this one deserved it.
      Annoyingly, I did a really good job painting her face but you can't see most of it once her fringe is attached.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hi folks.  I've got plenty of minis painted from the last two years to slowly share with you all.  Here we have the D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures Human Druid 73390.  I was in need of a Firbolg Monk for my party, and Nolzur's had yet to release any of their firbolg models.  Since the character would be traversing a frigid wasteland, I also wanted to find a character who was properly clothed - no sleeveless/shirtless monks for me.  I settled on this character because he was properly rangery and most importantly - bearded.
       
      I chopped off his sword and the antlers on his back, glued a toothpick to his empty hand, sculpted some acceptable ears using green stuff and gave him some paint.  I really like how it turned out and it managed to feel like the perfect blend between monk and naturalist.
       
      Though i must admit, his face is a bit muppety.

      Pau, is a Firbolg from the tribes of Frostrun. He set out on a pilgrimage like many Firbolg do, and found himself at a monastery to the south, at the edge of the Frost.  The monastery, besides providing shelter to the wary traveler, depicted a statue of Firbolg.  Pau took this as a sign and spent several years training in the way of the Four Elements.  Armed with this new power, Pau has set back out to the North to return home and restore order to Frostrun.

      What kind of conversions have you done to make the perfect character?

      Ok, this is a mini that I made as a joke for a friend of mine. He GMs a lot of games, and has always been a bit fascinated by the fact that the Half Dragon template can be added to almost any kind of creature. Including ones that reproduce by dividing.
      Truly, the biology of dragons is a wonder.
      Anyway, he got to completely wreck the party with this Half Black Dragon Gelatinous Cube.
      I made it by combining some parts from an invisible dragon and gelatinous cube minis (both from Reaper’s Bones line). I used water effect for gap filling and a bit of sculpting, and added a little color with some thinned down paints. I wanted to give the impression that it picks up debris from the floor as it moves along.
      Except for the eyes, which are totally opaque so that they can show up. Seriously, I think they’re the only part that really shows up at all in the pictures, but you get the idea.


      In an unrelated project for the same friend, I found a really strange bit that I think is supposed to be the head of a dragon, but seriously looks like a half dragon spider. So that got painted too.
      Man, dragons really make some poor choices.

      Slaad from Nolzur's. Blue and Green painted in their normal colors; Death and Gray panted in red and black. 
      Not just for fantasy; also make good spacemonsters and post-apocalyptic mutant/invaders, as shown here.
