Minotaurs Space Marines Chapter Step by Step Painting Tutorial OK here goes with my first painting tutorial for the Badab War Minotaurs Space Marines Chapter. I have been looking for a new set of space marines to paint apart from Space Wolves and I love the history and fluff behind this chapter. Imperial Armour 10 has this chapter in a dark bronze armour with red as the contrasting colour and gold for the weapon metal parts and some shoulder pads. The miniature is just a bog standard assault marine without the backpack. I liked the pose and used a loin cloth from a space marine commander box set to make the miniature fit in with the chapter. Minotaur Space Marine Paint Guide Step 1 First up a light spray of GW chaos black spray paint.

Asterion Moloc Work in Progress I’m still working away on the minotaurs chapter master Asterion Moloc and I have almost finished the front of the shield.

Some of the gold work will need touching up after I filled it with a white stone like colour (or that’s what I was aiming for) Thanks to RussDe for suggesting I break up the contrasts on thew shield as before there was just too much bronze. Aiming to do a lot of gem work on the miniature as he is the chapter master and for once I’m not rushing this miniature. Still haven’t worked on the back of the shield yet but going to attempt some sort of freehand to jazz it up a bit, although it may go wrong and just get painted black. Here are the most recent pictures from Asterion himself and his shield. Still not sure about the spear white stone but going to work on this a bit more and may change to marble or something… Comments and crits always welcome Amazon.co.uk...
