The Minotaur - Cadia's Red Eagles

This was my entry for GoldenDemon 2010. The Minotaur is one weird looking model. Lots of organic lines instead of the always straight lines of the imperial guard, mixed with a ww1 theme, it is the kind of model you either hate or love, and oh boy did I love painting it. It roughly took about 6 months of evenings and weekends to finish. I themed the Minotaur to fit my ongoing army project "Cadia's Red Eagles", hence the unorthodox color palette on the crew. A lot of work was put into the interior as it was very detailed, and also into the fair bit of freehand. Each cannon is named after my friend’s twin baby girls, Idun and Sif. The number 831 is a reference to my fiancés birthday. The quote on the tank shield (“Ultima Ratio Imperator”) is a reference to Louis XIV of France whom engraved Ultima Ratio Regum on his cannons, translates to “last argument of kings”. It seemed very fitting on this vehicle. Enough blabbering, hope you like it.

I can only endorse what was said before. This is an awesome creation. In particular, I really like the weathering-effect of this model.
