Maledrakh's B4Core #68-71: The Minitaurs


Recommended Posts

The "Minitaurs" from the Bones 4 core set, one of the earliest strech goals added to the set.

I have no idea whether these represent something specific in D&D or not. They might be stunted minotaurs, swole beastdwarfs, goatmen, large implike demons or maybe something entirely different. Whatever the case may be, they are quite comic-looking in their art direction. Probably has something to do with their wide muscular torsos more than anything.

I do find it a bit strange that there are three of one type with cowlike shaped (but serrated like ibex) horns, and the fourth one which more than anything is a reindeer. Naturally, this one is called Rüdölf. With umlaut as he obviously is the most heavy metal one. Note the Hellraiser loincloth and birdskull nipple-ring,

This one has what seems to be a defect in his wrist:


Why is there a hole there? Is there a part missing or is this just a miscast? Does anybody else have this same armhole?
