Middle Kingdom Minotaurs

We've been building armies to fight our Hostile Realms campaign.

Our Middle Kingdoms army list includes a unit of minotaurs, so I conducted an extensive search of the internet to locate suitable models.  Since the minotaurs are a beast unit in the game, they would be based on 4 1-figure stands.  Many manufacturers make great minotaur models, but very few have 4 variations of a similar model that can be used to form up a unit of minotaurs.  I finally found some excellent candidates from Cavalcade Wargames.  They offered a nice selection of minotaurs and had a great variety of poses.

So, here are four of the minotaurs are in all of their glory:




Ranked up against a unit of Gondorian infantry.  Quite the
size difference!






Once I've finished the Midde Kingdoms and Gondorian armies, I plan to paint a Snow Goblin army for Hostile Realms.  Here is my first snow goblin, fresh off the painting table.  Giant yeti, ice trolls, snow ogres, and winter wolves, oh my!

  1. Nice minotaurs! The snow goblin looks promising too, should be an interesting army

  2. I tried painting the goblins in flesh colors also. They looked suitably creepy, but the flesh color was a little washed out by the gray and white winter colors.

  3. Those Minoaturs are impressive, Dave - roughly 54mm from the website - no wonder they make mere mortals tremble!

    The snow goblins sound interesting. I KNOW we didn't do an army list for them! :-)

  4. I like those figs, they've kind of got an old-school beastman feel.

  5. Old school, heavy, metal miniatures. I think they sell 8 different poses.

  6. The minotaurs look great, and suitably intimidating. I better go look up their stats again before I have to face them.

  7. Forgot to mention, I'm really liking those blue Snow Goblins, they definitely look creepy.

  8. Jed, the minotaurs might look scarier than their combat statistics! :)

    Thanks for the comments. After some experimenting, I think I've settled on a suitable paint scheme for the goblins.
