Minotaur Hero progress

I have been working on my minotaur hero for the last few days. Mostly I have been adding a little green stuff to the shield every evening letting it cure over night. after cutting off the left hand axe I drilled out the handle and used some wire to secure the shield to the hand. Then a little more green stuff to cover the wire and make it look like a handle on the back of the shield. It is basically a weapon swap but I had to make the shield. The rest of the model is the old minotaur lord model.
Here is a detail shot of the shield. I may still do a little more work on the shield but I think it is at a good place if I decide to stop. I plan to use him as either a doom bull or gore bull depending on whichever I need. I have another of the old Minotaur lord models and plan to eventually build it as the standard two weapon version.
Last is more Beastmen reinforcements. I did some trading and picked u a pile of the old one pose beastman halberdiers, a Gor champ, a musician and a standard bearer. I have rebased them and plan to prime them up over the long weekend.

Currently I plan to use the one pose gors as back rankers for my Bestigors. This latest batch should give me over fifty Bestigors. With all of the horde unit rumours for the upcoming 8th edition I wanted to have enough models to test it out.
I am thinking about a block of fifty or so Bestigors as the centerpiece unit of the army. Of course fifty Bestigors with full command would be 630 points. I will have to wait and see the new rules in July.

Lookin' good! I look forward to seeing the gribbly horde when it's finished!

And remember, the name "Holy Cows" has already been taken by my own Minotaur army. You've have to come up with something else: the Beastie Boys, maybe?

Maybe the standard bearer can carry an "EAT MOR CHIKIN" sign.

I am thinking more along the line of "Man, The other white meat."

@ Chuck, I believe that the Beastie Boys is also taken. I am thinking i will break out the old Realm of Chaos tome and roll a name for the army.
