Mark in his Level 2 Blog has been commenting on the need for a Minotaur for his Mordheim Beatman warband.
I have 3 of varying sizes,
An old citadel Runequest Minotaur painted when I was 16-18 (it was advertised April 1982) and which will be stripped down and repainted as I work my way through the lead pile. It was about this time that I first started to build up a collection of fantasy figures with the intention of running a dungeon something I am now close to since I bought the Dwarven Forge terrain.
The second is the otherworld Minotaur posted separately (but included in the group shot).
The third is my Beastman Minotaur Lord from around 2004, which I believe was subsequently known as a Doombull which was painted a few years ago along with a few older beastmen. I did buy a plastic box set of Beastmen and two chaos hounds with the intention of inlcuding this Minotaur in a Mordheim warband but in excess of 5 years later I am still not finished.
Together you certainly get an indication of the change in scale of the Minotaur since 1982 in Citadel/Games Workshop with the Doom Bulls Axe as big as the old Citadel Minotaur.
