WIP: Two Minotaurs for (almost) the price of one


GW's Cygor (plastic, by ???): Milliput + primed with GW's Out-of-sale sprays (rhinox hide and skrag brown)






The 2nd Minotaur is a heavily converted piece using:

Mierce Minotaur Bust (resin, by Alex Huntley) + GW's Ghorgon bitz (plastic, by ???)

The right leg was a different part I didn't have, so i had to sculpt it from scratch with green stuff.

There are other bitz that will be added later on when the basic painting is done. 








The bases are made with MDF + bitz + Greenstuffworld' tree stumps +Vallejo's earth texture.

Belegar Ironhammer/Warden King

GW's Belegar Ironhammer/Warden King (plastic, by ???)

I have this mini for a long time and finally decided to try a bit of NMM on it.

The base is from Scibor Monstrous.

My next project is a big undersea mini. Just guess who.

Horticulous Slimux

GW's Horticulous Slimux (plastic, by Gaku Matsubayashi)


This is Games Workshop's Horticulous Slimux, which has already been painted by the talented David Sopper and Angelo di Chello (Golden Demon and Slayer Sword winners). As you can see, this miniature was heavily converted. 

I love the minis designed by Gaku Matsubayashi (I still have to paint the Bilepiper among many other minis he has created!). But with Horticulous Slimux, I think Games Workshop jumped over the shark. In my humble opinion, the original snail is too Disney-like. Big papa Nurgle needs more pustules and pus, don't you think?
  
So I've decided to get rid of the tiny feet and I 've changed the face of that monstrous mount. As you can see in the first WIP picture, I used Green stuff and micro balls from Green Stuff World and some bitz from Games Workshop's Drukhari miniatures (former Dark Eldars) to make that beast more Nurglesque. Then I primed it and later decided to ass some mushrooms (GW's bitz too).

 Then, after adding the basic colours, I tried to add a few details (You can't see it on the picture, but there's a frog hiding in the tree (only seen from behind).
 
To make it more slimy, I have adde a mix of GW's Nurgle Rot and Scale colour Intense Yellow under that huge slug.

The base is from Forgeworld's Shart'or, which was magnetized with some Green Stuff World's Magnetic sheet.
I hope you like him! It took quite some time to achieve, but that's exactly how I wanted it to be. 

If you do like it, please go vote for it for Green Stuff World's Competition:
