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.

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.

New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.

A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
