How to paint Minotaurs Part 2 – Ivanus Enkomi

Minotaurs Banner
This post was a bit delayed due to real life getting in the way! Ivanus has been painted for some time, though he just required basing which I managed to do when I had a spare second last night.


I magnetized the cape as the has the option of a jump pack which I may want to make use of one day! (First I need to get my hands on a Jump Pack!)

So here is my step by step guide on how to paint Ivanus Enkomi of the Minotaurs!

Paint Used:
Abaddon Black
Hashut Copper
Blood Red
Runefang Steel
White Scar
Nuln Oil

Step One:
First step was under coating with Abaddon black spray, touching up with Abaddon paint and then covering the whole model with Nuln Oil, not stressing too much about the cape or the back at this stage. I then applied Hashut Copper to the big details, namely head, chest and staff.

Step Two:
Next I did the same with the Hashut Copper but with Blood Red sections, namely plume, staff and cape..

Step Three:
The skulls on knee and shoulder pad were painted with Runefang Silver. Whole model washed in Badab Black, not very sparingly!

Step Four:
Hashut Copper was added to all details such as legs and shoulder pads etc. Also then washed in Badab Black.

Step Five:
White was added to staff and honour seals, washed with Badab Black and on the seal a slight amount of Blood Red was added. Areas cleaned up.

Step Six:
Leadbelcher added to metal parts of debris he is standing on, and based in my normal way of adding sand and nuln oiling it before it dries.


Voila, a very simple and quite effective way of painting Ivanus! I hate painting black, as I think it looks quite bland, though as a Chaplain he is entitled to it! I think the key was to just paint in as much detail as possible!
