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!":poke:

 

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!

Thanks all for your interest!

 

Basecoat is coming along on the main body portion of the mini...

The main body colour is a 2:1 mix; Harvest Brown: Blonde Hair (MSP).

 

For the metal plates, I'm making use of a bottle of bronze-y "sample" paint from Reaper, and the amulets, as well as other assorted razzle dazzle are MSP dragon gold.

 

Also started basecoating the loin cloth piece...

Used "fresh blood" for the cloth. Haven't decided on a colour for the skull yet. Metallic? Bone coloured? Thoughts from the audience appreciated!!

 

Thanks again! I'll be in touch :)

I'd say the skull looks more like decorative metal than actual bone. It might look cool painted up as bone but I'd go with metal. The horns on that skull might look nice painted up as bone though.

I think you're right! The metal plate really ties the armour together, and adding just a bit more bone with the horns is a nice touch!

 

Last update for tonight! Basecoat is nearly finished...

Next step is finishing the glaive arm...

Thinking adding some sort of leathery/meaty detail to the area just above the grip (it kind of looks like some sort of flesh and bone business stretched over the blade).

After I finish the glaive, I'll be doing some touch-ups, then starting my washes. Woot woot!

 

G'night!
