I had packaged off the minotaur along with another fig to Dave at mini painting 4 free. Unfortunately real life got in the way so after a period of time I just requested he send them back no matter what state they were in. He did mostly finish another figure but this guy just had a coat of black primer.
I wasn't originally planning on it, but getting this guy finished prompted me to pull out the two remaining spear armed goblins I needed to finish to get up to the required 6 and I also started converting and painting the bats from the box. If I keep several projects going I think I will have a better chance of hitting my year end target.
