Every miniature sculptor worthy of their name seems to doing a Miniotaur these days.
And Kev White (HasslefreeMiniayures) is no exception. The sculpt is actually meant as a second Ogre (a Axenarf variant) - but it will come with a bulls head too. Take a look: Real impressive work. Don’t recall seeing such well done armour in a very long time. Definitely a must have (for me).
That looks very good! I may have to get one, plus an avatars of war one and combine them with my doombull to have a unit of minotaurs! (Don;t wanna buy the new ones

Like the new GW plastics? Totally understandable - lol. Some of the worst sculpts GW has ever done (IMO).
Now those are awesome sculpts.
This is truly a great minotaur. With all these other companies getting the minotaur concept JUST RIGHT. I can’t possibly explain what GW were thinking…
This mini is awesome! The only (very minor) issue I have with it is that he doesn’t look as if he’s in the middle of a battlefield resting on his shield like that.

@ clam: I go along with you concerning to awesomeness of Kev’s Minotaur and the awfulness of the GW one!
Kev’s one is also a must for me! :cheers :hashut
I really like it as an ogre, but it doesn’t work for me as a minotaur.
scraps ogres I was sculpting
now if only the AoW one(s) DIDN’T cost 18£s a piece… I was thinking of getting alternate heads to the GW plastics. Maybe Kev will sell the heads individually. I have 3 metal with GWs. 3 xHWs. A Heresy guy with xHw. A random Minotaur by a guy with the same name as me (wooo! he rocks). With someone to make decent heads I’d be set. I’m undecided to get the new kit, if I did it would be for the weapons and stuff. I would not be using ANY of those heads. Also with no Dragon Ogres it seems I have some orphaned DOs and the bitz to make more that with decent heads could perhaps become Dragon Minotaurs…
THAT is a minotaur - and will the basis for the daemon…

Another great model, i like the idea of 2 different heads for the same model great way to do it

That’s a really impressive sculpt - I like it both as a minotaur and an ogre, and in both cases it reminds me of the Marauder miniatures sculpts from ages ago.
