Recently I've found myself collecting and painting 28mm Minotaur (By which I meant he bull headed types, not Forge Worlds favorite Space Marines). Unfortunately, I am now out of Minotaur at 8. I'm trying to get to 40, for no praticular reason (That's the limit of the Old Warhammer book).

So, what mini manufacturers put out Minotaur today or in the past. I have 3 of the Reaper ones and I'm pretty happy with them, and bought several from Harleaquin/Black Tree/Eorbis during their holiday sale, and plan to finish out the range. I inherited one mystery Mino from my father, who I believe is Grenadier but I haven't found him on the online catalog.

I have no intention of buying the new(er) Warhammer/"Age of Sigmar Minotaur plastic set as the fellows look a bit too far gone for my conception of Minos, though I intend to troll eBay for at least the old Doom Bull.

So if anybody knows of anyone who did a range of say 30 different Minotaur semi-recently, or one that's easily collected, or maybe just want to share there favorite Minotaur Mini or even a RPG story with one, let me know.

Intereting, I had that same impulse a few years ago and do have about 40 minotaurs all in the process of assembling or painting. A rough list of the manufacturers I have are:
RAFM
Grenadier (they did a boxed set with 6 different minotaurs, now OOP but you can find it on ebay)
Scibor
Mierce Miniatures
GW (lots of old metal miniatures that are much more 'realistic' than the latest plastic ones)
Chainmail
Avatars of War (2 models, 1 with battleaxe, 1 with Morningstar)
lots of Bob Olley minotaurs (including some Samurai minotaurs), I can't remember where I got them
Metal Magic

I would recommend going to ebay, Noble Knight Games, etc. and doing a search, you will be surprised at how many you find.

The old lord by trash Morrison (the doom bull?) Is a must.

Don't forget the war hammer quest minos! Plastic of a board game style.

I think crocodile games have them for war gods.

Man, looking for Warhammer Quest stuff was a lot simpler before Silver Tower came out.

Well, I managed to get a set of 4 of the Warhammer Quest Minotaurs for 30 dollars and free shipping. That's insanely low as Warhammer Quest stuff seems a lot more expensive then I remember.
