Awesome

****( )

My initial fear was that this was just a rehash of the DDM version. I am pleasantly surprised with the level of detail. The blood on the blade is a nice touch. The blending and shading a very nice and the proportions are perfect. Glad I got two and will be looking for a few more.


An excellent mini with one small flaw

*****

This was the first Large figure I got, and it was a very pleasant introduction to what WizKids is doing with the bigger figures of this line.

The sculpt is excellent. It's the pose right out of the bestiary, so it evokes a familiar gasp when you show it to players. It looks powerful and strong, creepy and just downright evil. The detail is excellent throughout, from the engraving of the axe to the fur to the dangly ring in the nose. Also, it's not clear from the pics, but there's actually blood running down the axe blade and dripping off the lower end, which is a fantastic touch. The issue I have is that it's a bit too small for a large creature, or at least smaller than I envision minotaurs. It's possible that this is due to it being hunched more than the actual size, but it still comes off a bit less overwhelming than it should.

The paint job is great. Just flat-out great. With so much of one kind of fur showing, it could have been a dull piece, but there's drybrush texture on the fur that makes it interesting to look at both close-up and at play distance on the table. The blood is convincingly painted on the axe-blade, and the nose ring is identifiably brass. I actually have absolutely no complaints, gripes, or even niggles about the paint job.

A note: the nose ring is a great touch, but it's very fragile, and half of it was broken off the nose when I unboxed it. A very easy fix, but something that will almost certainly recur with use.

In all, this piece is one of the stars of this set, and one that will see a lot of play as a minotaur or an evil outsider.


A stand out

*****

As I opened some boosters this fellow caught my eye. It us a stand out mini.


Another standout

*****

Another one of the top five in this set. "Minotaur with axe" has been done before, but this one has nice detail and a face that looks almost fiendish. He could stand to be a bit taller, but looks great. Has me looking for a PFS scenario with minotaurs in it.
