I like it. Nice detail on the sandals and belt buckle.

 How long did it take you to paint it? 

Who makes that model/game system?

  I know others may disagree with me but in my opinion that Minotaur looks better than some others that have recently been produced.  To me that is just the right amount of muscles...the sculpt needs more fur though.  And c'mon, wheres the nose ring? :P      ;D

Job's a good'un.

This is a reaper fig, I am going to use for my Beer N Pretzels game I am working on.  He obvious goes with the Greek battle group/faction/army (known as Helenes in mah rules)  I have a few other reaper figs for the Helenes.  I am currently customizing/converting a model for use as Medusa.  I am being inspired by the new Clash of the Titans.

It took about an hour and a half total to paint.  I painted him dark brown/ then red/ then dark brown again/ dry brushed lighter brown/ then brown inked.  I dry brushed the metallic buckle and hit the metal tabs individually.

I did a bit of searching for the "right" Minotaur and thought he fit the bill for me.

Well c'mon my good man...show us some Quar.( I have no idea what a "Quar" looks like, but now you got me curious.) ;D

How are the Berserkers coming along?  I'm really looking forward to seeing your SOK army expand as it motivates me to sling the ol' paintbrush around.

As soon as I finish the Quar I will take an army picture of them all.  I just need to touch up their base uniform color and ink wash them, matt coat and base grass.

The Quar are awesome, they look like Vaughn Bode designs, they're made by "Zombiesmith" miniatures:

I haven't picked up the Quar rulebook yet, but it's on my "must buy eventually" list.

Those are pretty neat. Definately different but that in a good way. I like the color scheme BTW.

Funny how the World War I/Warzone look comes through with them too.  Cool.
May the Dark Lords of Lead-Free Pewter smile kindly upon you.

That is so cool ...I don't know what to say really.  Nice painting, good choice of army color, and now I feel that slight tingle of wanting to spend wads of cash getting into some "Quar Wars".  Must fight...new ...awesome...shiny stuff...
