Nice subdued palette and well blended skin tones.

Thanks, hopefully the contrast between cow and man was subtle enough!

I love it, it has more of the original Greek Minotaur look than a fantasy beastman, classic!

I really like this figure, because he is big and bulky, but not overly huge and exaggerated.  And now that you say that, I'm starting to think more and more that this is probably a Dennis Mize piece.  From what I have heard, he was very into mythology and a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen.

I really like the bull head - and the subtle contrast with the human flesh parts - never seen this mini before and it's perfectly painted up!

Thank you Iridil!   He's actually a pretty old miniature.  I didn't see the bottom (of course I always forget that part), but you're looking at some time in the eighties being sculpted.  He's still out and available at Iron Wind Metals if you're ever intrested.

Definitely has a Minotaur of Taladas feel to it!

Are those the Dragonlance Minotaurs? I remember that there was an old Partha set of minis from Dragonlance that had a Minotaur figure in it.

      Hello gents and gentesses!
       
      So today's miniature I'm going to have to show in edited form, as she's fully exposing all of her mammalian virtues.
       
      This one is a "female victim", from a set of the same name, sculpted by Dennis Mize for his miniature range "Children of the Night", sculpted way back in 1979.  I always forget to, but I should have taken a picture of her next to some point of reference, because she's a small miniature, 25 miniatures instead of the 28-32 of modern times.

      Here is here face:
       

       
      and here is a link to see the rest of her in Instagram:
      https://www.instagram.com/p/CAqKGQXnPgh/
       
      or if you don't have access to Instagram, another shot of her from the Lost Mini Wiki:
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/images/9/9d/DF-247_A.JPG
       
      which only gives a single angle of her front.
       
      In any case, a nice and simple figure to to, as it's just a girl and her skin basically.
       
      Here is the whole set, unpainted, so unedited:
       
       
      Crazy the things we were allowed to buy in the eighties as teenagers!

      Hi guys and gals,
       
      so I've been painting a goodly amount this last week or so, but it's been so cloudy I haven't been able to take proper photographs.  Today was the first day the weather showed a bit of sun, so got some photographs going.  Here is the first one I've been working on, the Drakonne by Bob Charrette.  I'm about 99.9578% that this is based on the dragonne in the first hardback Monster Manual, with a slight consonant adjustment to avoid any copyright infringements.  
       
      So looks lots of photos from lots of angles:
       

       
      Cross between a lion and a copper dragon as per the Monster Manual, so tried to do a similar color scheme.  
       
      Anyhoos, more to come soon, just got to get the photos edited and made presentable.

      And here is the second one I finished this morning, another Ral Partha figure sculpted by Dennis Mize back in the eighties.
       
      This one looks to be pretty clearly based on the Evil Queen of Disney fame.  I didn't want to give her exactly the same colors, so threw in some orange into the mix.
       
      I think this is another Ral Partha Import resculpt.   I added a close up photo, but realized afterwards there is a little fuzz or lint or something on the cloak, sorry about that. Adding it in anyway, sa I'm too lazy to retake the photos.
