There are some things that are really hard to sculpt properly at miniature scale--foxy women, hydras.

And then there are some things that are very easy to get right--or at least people regularly manage to do it.

Dwarves come out ok quite a bit--and minotaurs.

Man are the miniatures people good at making minotaurs.

I am firmly of the opinion that there should usually be minotaurs. Minotaurs hang out in laybrinths, which are the coolest places to hang out.
Even that Warcraft-looking anime-ish guy up there looks fairly decent.

For more information on minotaurs, visit your local library, or just click

Video is Kyle Kinane. He rules almost as much as minotaurs, and his first CD just came out.

I think they both turn out well because they are inclined towards chunkiness. It's hard to make willowy and graceful at such a small scale, but bulky and blockish is much easier.

I have to agree, those are some awesome minotaurs, particularly the middle 2.
