This weekend's big project: Baphomet (aka Minotaur Demon Lord).
I want him to look a bit off or unappealing. I went with 90% cool / cold colors, primarily blue-grey and white metal. The warm bronze hopefully emphasizes that pallor. Olive drab - the color of his little apron-thing, is of course drab and generally not a super great looking color, so it was a natural choice.
Noteworthy: ALL Reaper paints except for the stone of the base, which is my usual Americana craft paint stone recipe). Almost everything is at least six layers deep. The flesh is painted up from black to white using cool greys (Stone grey, misty grey, up to dragon white). Armor starts with blackened steel, then tarnished, and highlighted with Blade. Bronze is Dragon Bronze washed with brown wash and re-highlighted with Dragon Bronze / Ancient Gold.
This is also one of my only works in which I painted parts separately and then put the mini together.
Cringeworthy: One of these days I will set up a proper miniature painting rig because I generally do not take good pics. Just using my camera phone, bracing my hands against the table, and hoping for the best. This time I went through the extra trouble of using an old black T-shirt to make an impromptu background. Wow - exertion!
I also missed the collar of his armor harness. When I put everything together, I just sort of overlooked that there should be visible brown leather between his mane and his head. I'll come back and get it later.
Introducing the newest demon lord in my miniatures collection...
The Minotaur Demon Lord, aka Baphomet, aka "the Horned King", aka "the Prince of Beasts."
This miniature was quite a bit bigger than the metal demon lord minis I've painted previously. A bit of a challenge, but I'm pleased with the result!
If anyone is interested in the play-by-play of me painting this miniature, feel free to check out the work in progress thread on the forum.
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!"
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!

Wait, D&D doesn't stand for Demons, Demons, and More Demons: The Party's Screwed?
Two lovely to paint fellows from Bones 2 were finished last night, the Fire Demon/Balor and the Minotaur Demon Lord.
I tried to do both up to also fit in a Khorne demon army.
