Strumpet, Minotaur, elementals, kitty oh my! PIC HEAVY!

Recommended Posts

Nice work. My faves are the air elemental and the use of the base coming up into the whirwind, the gems on the minotaur, and the strumpet's petticoat(?)

Very nice assortment you painted up. They're all lovely, but I've never seen anything like that air elemental. There's a real touch of brilliance to that concept. It's one thing to come up with a great idea, and another thing to pull it off. Major kudos to nailing both! :winkthumbs: I also love the way you highlighted the ice troll. It makes him look a bit furry, even where their isn't any. Beautifully done.

      Once again my buddy with the minotaur character fixation asked me to find a minotaur for him that I can convert into a monk.  Given that most are armed and armored ... I understood his dilemma. 
       
      Thrym's Table presents:
       
      Spellcrow Minotaur as
      Minotaur Monk
       

      Original marketing image; copyright Spellcrow Miniatures.
       
      The first things that had to go were the axes.  The hands were attached to axes on a separate sprue and made it easy to remove them.  Next I drilled out the old handle and cleaned up the pins to the wrists.
       
      Fairly easy so far.  I did it during game night while playing Talisman.  I was the Sprite.
       
      Next I pared back the horns to create a pin and to create a better profile.  The stock horns seemed a bit out of proportion to him.  When I got home my original plan was to place pieces of mini cable ties to create a Karnak look for his fists.  The cable tie I started with worked to a point but wouldn't lay flat enough to his hand.  So time for idea #2, wire.  
       

      As you can see, Karnak has bands around his hands.
       
      That worked well.  That gave me the idea for a necklace or medallion swinging away from him.
       
      Here he is...

       
      Enjoy and stay tuned.

      I finished this model right at the end of February, but I've been under the weather and it wasn't until today that I felt up to taking pictures.  This was my first time chopping up the integral base of a bones mini and making a custom base and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
       

       

       

       
      I realized upon photographing him that I forgot to properly paint the armband on his left arm so I'll have to go back and do that.  I might also repaint the knife/cleaver as steel.  I thought it would look cool as copper like some kind of ceremonial knife, but I think it's a bit too much.
       
      C&C welcome, thanks for looking!

      as Usual, I failed to clean him up well, but he’s good for the table

      Okay, I couldn't really resist the silly title that had a touch of alliteration...  Guess it's a thing for me or something.  Anyways, I figured I'd want to do up a long-term WIP thread featuring a themed army that has the goal of being made mostly of Reaper miniatures...  That and hey, I like gnolls and minotaurs, so... Why no!  Not quite certain what the precise theme is just yet, but we'll roll with "spots and stripes are awesome, as is a love for axes and mythology in general" as the starter of it all.  Initially, this army will be made mostly (if not all) with Bones figures, but eventually metal minis will find their way in.  Bones are rather convenient with their pricing, and there is a wide selection on offer!
       
      It's also something to paint other than my various Games Workshop armies (Tau, Catachans, a scattered amount of Space Marines, a few Tyranids (for now), Skaven, as well as (fantasy) Orcs, although I have nowhere near as many greenskins), and my main focus is purely on fun, with fluff to come as things go.  That and I very much so plan on spending a good amount of time on each mini, not just for detail, but to improve my own skills in general.  One could potentially argue that I intend on making these guys more of my "showpieces", which is something I don't mind the thought of at all
       
      I like how @Glitterwolf formats their posts, so...  I'm thiefing parts of it, as it's a nice formatting, and of course provides a reasonable amount of detail for it all, so why not
       
      Pictures were taken with my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge) because at the time I didn't quite feel like messing around with my G85 - or something to that effect ~_^
       

      First and foremost, we have double trouble with a handsome hunk, I mean a minotaur who means business!  77012 Gnoll Warrior, 77013 Minotaur, and 77236 Bloodmane.  White bones doesn't quite look appropriate in my eyes as it's "naked", so let's fix that...
       

      ^Both gnolls now have primer on them...  And of course the couple of mold lines I missed are blatantly visible... Not that I mind, it's always nice to find them NOW other than a few hours into things...
       
      I'm planning on going somewhat darker for their fur, hence why the medium-ish grey priming job.
       
      Paint used:
      09108 Brush-on Primer
      09065 Grey Liner
       
      Two parts primer, three parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
       

       
      ^Not to be outdone, our fearless minotaur jumps into the fray as well, although somewhat lighter than the gnolls.  Something about how a fox is thinking about going with a more "traditional" medium brown.  Would have used brown liner, but, uhm, don't have that, so grey liner it is.
       
      Paint used:
      09108 Brush-on Primer
      09065 Grey Liner
       
      Three parts primer, two parts grey liner, one drop of water to improve flow.
       

      ^And since I just had to have him on my last order, here we have most of what I'll call our first leader, or even general of it all, 77376 Minotaur Demon Lord, partially test-fit.  I ran out of time to get the mold lines on the other six parts, but I'll be working on that today.  Goal is to have him assembled today, and quite possibly primered as well.  I'm not quite certain as to precisely what colour I'll be going with on him, but for some reason an almost "aflame" reddish-coppery-orange with hints of brown in it come to mind.
