Photo Five - The pair of Minotaur's. I have tried for a very different painting style with these figures, a dark brown base layer and more subdued colours.
Photo Six - The Spartan Games Hero, nearly finished. Once again I have purposely tried for a subdued colour scheme, less primary and with dark brown shading rather than pure black. More natural!
Photo Eight - As above. I had wanted to have a GW Blood Angels decal on the shield, but instead went for this traditional Greek letter, slightly highlighted. My initial plan was to have a group of five Blood Angel Spartans and then a similar group of five Ultra Marine themed Greek soldiers.
Photo Nine - A comparison of the two figures, the Spartan Miniatures figure is 40mm tall (head to toe) and the Minotaur scales out at roughly the same height. I have been collecting Greek Myth miniatures for some time and wanted MY Minotaur's and Monster's to be 40mm or there about rather than the huge monsters of current gaming vogue.
Now that I have finally taken the plunge to finish three figures, I would hope to proceed with this project. A couple of groups of Greek soldiers and a hand full of monsters, maybe a group of skeleton's as Jason and the Argonaut's.
