The Beasts in the woods
Earlier in the week I mentioned that I'd picked up some of the new GW Minotaurs. Some of you like them, and some of you don't. That's just fine, each to his own.
After assembling and painting three of these beasts I can say I like them. Could GW have done a few things differently? Sure, but I feel there are plenty of great things about them (not the least of which are the awesome heads), and the flaws can be handled with a minimum of converting.
Anyway, here they are.
I entered them in the Minotaur Painting Competition each US Hobby Center was running (Horns and Hooves was the title, I think). Unfortunately due to the crazy snow in Baltimore, I was the only guy to brave the elements and get my ass to GW Yorkridge early enough in the week to snag a box and get them painted. Yes folks, I won, but it was by default. Some competition would've been nice, but it just wasn't the case. Oh well, a free Doombull isn't to be scoffed at.
Well, here are a few more shots of the first unit in my new Beastmen army that I'll be blogging about over the coming year. Next up for these guys, either Centigors converted from Marauder Horses and Gors, or a Jabberslythe from a wild Dragon/Mawlock combo.
