Blood Bowl Minotaur

Recommended Posts

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.

      My next project is these Bloodreavers and Slaughterpriest for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer Quest. Enjoy!

      This old Games Workshop mini is from about 1986. I think I had gotten him in a pack of minis because I have several others from the same line. I think I bought the pack mainly for this guy. He was my favorite, and I painted him solid black with silver trim. 
       
      This time, I went with copper colored armor. A long time ago I wasn’t down with the big snake on his head so I chopped it off. I used paperclip and some contour putty to resculpt it here. The shield glued on to a round knob on his fist. Trying to figure out how to incorporate that unconcealable circle on the shield, I went with a simple eye motif. 
       
      Please let me know regarding the flaming sword. I made the flame with hot glue. I think flames are brightest/hottest at the base and fade to black smoke at the top. I’m not sure how well this paint job imitates Fire, so comments on how to improve would be greatly appreciated.

      Presenting Cypher, a character from Games Workshops Warhammer 40k range.
      My version is a mysterious and legendary Space Knight recognisable from the giant sword he carries but never uses, while he normally lives a hermit-like existence on the various, isolated outer worlds, he will occasionally pledge his services to a quest or expedition in exchange for transport off world. 
       
      Really surprised I got this one finished, he's been on my desk well past the point where I normally get fed up of looking at things, and he's not a mini I'm that interested in (I basically really like his sword scabbard).
      That he turned out okay too is just a bonus.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      I wasn't planning on ever doing any more Work In Progress threads (The number of threads I've abandoned outnumber my finished threads by a pretty ridiculous amount at this point), but I'm trying to get back into the habit of painting every day and my brain is being a real jerk about it (he'd be a lot happier if I gave up on this whole painting nonsense and just stared mindlessly at a screen all day).
      So the idea is if I post an update a day, regardless of how much progress I've made, I'll shame myself into making sure I've done enough for a worthwhile update or something.
       
      Day 1 (Which was yesterday):-
       

       
      The King and his Seahorse have been undercoated, washed and I've started on the base, I got part way through applying the pumice paste before I realised I couldn't get to the middle without getting it all over the Seahorses tail/tentacles/tail-acles?
      Today I want to try and finish the base, and maybe start on the Seahorse.

      The last of the drow I chosen to try to do this month. Again wanted to try different things, i.e. hair color, etc. different colors to see how they work. And here I went with the usual red clothing thinking it'll help the contrast of the green.
