The next model in this amazing set is the Pak 36. At the start of the war this was an effective anti tank gun however by mid war it was woefully inadequate and got the nickname Heeresanklopfgerät (literally "army door-knocking device").
I started with my usual grey primer.
Next the finished model.

Overall a nice model to build and paint up.

I started with a grey primer.
I painted up the crew with Field Grey and Reflective Green for the uniforms and drybrushed the gun with Middlestone.
Next was a wash of my 50/50 mix of brown and black on the crew and the basic camouflage pattern on the gun. Followed by a drybrush of Middlestone.
Next post, the finished product.

Finished all the details finally. Again the pictures don't show the contrast as well as I would like, you cant see the different red layers on the shoulder pads and Bull heads for instance. The photo quality aside they came out very nicely and my Minotaur Army is looking good!
Here is a picture of the Squad Leader. I used freehand to paint the small symbol (upside down V) on for a nice touch of detail. I also like the darker metal on the Thunder Hammer heads as a contrast. I love the Forge World Shoulder pads!
Here are the rest of the pictures.
My army now consists of:
2 Tactical Squads, 1 Scout Squad, 1 Biker Squad, 1 Dreadnought, 2 Terminator Squads, 1 Rhino and 1 Landraider.
I am now officially out of models to paint for this army. I want some Assault Marines for sure, probably a Devastator Squad, Predator a Veteran Squad and some Heroes to lead them all!
Let me know what you would like to see next and maybe it will help me decide as well..lol

Managed to paint some of the base colours of the details.
Will be layering them next with some highlights and applying washes for shading.
Small update but time has been short this last week for hobby.

I have been meaning to paint these guys for a long time now and finally I have. First off I purchased the shields from Scibor Miniatures and while I am not the first to do this I think they fit perfectly with the Minotaurs theme.Secondly I purchased the Forge World Minotaur shoulder pads which I also think are outstanding.
I have primed the models in black then base coated with Tin Bitz.

The base brown camouflage was a 50/50 mix of Middlestone and Chocolate Brown and a 70/30 Chocolate Brown and Middlestone mix for the center part of the camouflage. The green was a 50/50 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone as a base then a 70/30 mix of Reflective Green and Middlestone for the center of the camouflage. I painted the engine a metal colour and the washed the entire model with a 50/50 mix of brown and black wash.
The crew were painted with Field Grey and Reflective Green then washed with the same 50/50 brown and black wash.
This was really fun to paint up and pretty quick. I like the result especially since I didn't even have to highlight after the wash a sit was not going to really add much more to the model.
Cant wait to start the next one!
