10mm Pendraken Sci-fi Minotaurs

20 Feb

DSCF2039

Having pushed myself to find some painting time in the last few days, I managed to get some 10mm Sci-fi minotaurs done for entry to the Pendraken painting comp. Although these are for use in 10mm, they scale perfectly to 15mm as bovine beastmen types in my scifi games. I can recommend these little fellers as fodder troops, especially if you have some other futuristic beastmen (such as irregular’s scifi goatmen) as a great soldier in such an army. These minotaurs are not blessed with armour or much else other than a heavy weapon (in 10mm they are anyway!) I’m planning on quite a lot more of these for my warband.

While I like their finish, I can honestly say I aint got much of a chance at a shot of the category prize, there are sooo many great entries, I doubt I’ll get a look in. They say it’s not the winning, but taking part that’s important, and that is indeed true, but you gotta be in it to win it!

Good luck to all the entrants in the comp!

    Those are excellent! I’m thrilled and delighted to see sci-fi figures which aren’t the same old space marines, bugs, lizardmen, etc. Plus it’s great you could throw them into a 15mm game if you want. Good luck with the comp!

      Thanks for your kind words Edward! I had intended these for 15mm all along to accompany my Goatmen and other anthropomorphs, and at £1.80 for 5 they’re pretty good value too.(Available here: http://www.pendraken.co.uk/Sci-Fi-c22/) I agree there needs to be more variations for creatures for 15mm, but with the current 15mm explosion there are loads and loads of new and inspiring minis coming out all the time now, but strangely nothing like these ones!
      Thanks for the good luck, I’m really going to need it, as the standards are extremely high,so here’s hoping!!
      (PS, be careful about saying “Space Marine”, the GW monsters might get you!!)
