Cheers T!

So I've added the verdigris and the first drybrush of bronze, will probably have to do a second one as well before the last one which lightens everything up. The wash I used was a bit heavy and the drybrush isn't covering it well. I'm considering using the airbrush to do the wash next time. I know they look dark now but they will lighten up (although the tarnish isn't as bright in person).

Wow, the Chaplain came out great! I might have to borrow that pose sometime... the crozius sort of at rest looks very cool.

Thanks Varakir, I'm glad I didn't butcher the thing!

Feel free Horus, personally in a perfect world I would have prefered to have it rest parrallel to the ground but the legs and arm make it hard to do, I'm happy with the pose as it is though. He looks like he means business!

I prefer your pose to the standard one, makes the most of a awesome mini. I did deliberate grabbing one at one point to convert to a salamander but with the amount of work required mine would definitely end up butchered!

It would be a hell of a lot work, the amount of Minotaurs specific detail on it is pretty huge, that said @xenobiotic has chopped up Moloc and used him very convincingly as Pre Heresy Night Lords parts so it can be done. The hardest bit would be doing sculpting something over the bulls head on the chest, that would be tricky to cover without ruining the awesome ribs.

The easiest way to go about the chest is not to cover it up but rather cut enough of it away to turn into from a bulls head into a sternum which completes the look of a skeletal torso. That can be done pretty easily with a sharp enough scalpel and a lot of patience (and reference to anatomy if one hasn't come across that earlier).

I've done a lot of the things you've also achieved with the miniature (ie stolen the crozarius, cutting it apart for parts, taking the power fist for other miniatures and what not), I thinks it's one of the more useful special characters FW has released. I still don't understand the posing of the legs though, they look so awkward if you use the standard posing and base details.

Actually we prefer the term "God damned miniature converting artificial intelligence" these days.

psssh, it's Political correctness gone mad!

Intersting idea carving the minotaur down into the sternum. When i'm feeling extremely brave i might try it.
