So hey! I finally found that missing Minotaur that fit the old-school ethos of my Chaos Dwarfs, allowing me to finally complete the team! Like, properly and fully.
This Minotaur is actually from a generation of models preceding this 3rd Edition Chaos Dwarf team, and so he’d work well with the Original Chaos Dwarf players. As it happened, I really did not like the 3rd Edition Blood Bowl Minotaur player model at all, so I went looking for an alternative option. That option turning out to be one of the really old-school C34 Minotaur Lords range, named “Ox Roar, Chaos Champion of Ultimate Slaughter”. I originally painted Ox-Roar here a number of years back, though his shoulder pauldron was a different colour, not one that fits the current Chaos Dwarf colour scheme. I got him a long, long time ago, and set about removing his axe so he could be a Blood Bowl player – he looked perfect for the role – I mean, just look at him and his gladiatorial-themed gear!
That meant that once I found the large, hirsuite fellow, all I’d need to do would be to repaint the pauldron, touch up any chipped/scuffed or damaged paint, add the appropriate player number, and he’d be read to smash heads on the Blood Bowl pitch once again- or butt heads, painful given that third hornm he has in the middle of his forehead!
And that’s that! Now that this team is completely, err, completed, I’ve finally removed the last mental block stopping me from going back and completing one of the two other somewhat-painted teams I need to update for the modern day. There’s my oldhammer++ Orcs and also my “middlehammer” Khemri team. Which to work on… which to work on…
