This minotaur was always one of my favorite minis when I was a kid. It was painted by my friend, Tim M. — who was the best miniature painter of anyone I knew then. Everyone always wanted to trade minis with Tim; so he seemed to always have a fresh supply of new ones.
I know that there are some ridiculously detailed painted minis and no shortage of photos on the web of them (ex.). However, back then Tim was an artistic god.
So, anyway, yesterday while we were hanging out at my mothers. Dave had gotten out a children’s xylophone for Ainsley to play with and it happened to be in the same closet where my old D&D minis, model cars and airplanes were in. I got this guy out, along with all the other junk lead minis I had from back then.
