The Minotaur chassis was originally developed for extreme terrain mobility. It sports a 4-wheel system with airless tires and three-axis suspension system. The suspension is designed to allow the vehicle to drop from up to 30 feet with a full load and remain operational. The first applications of the Minotaur was the ‘Ares’ patter Minotaur which founds its way on the 2035 Mars mission.
The tech companies that co-designed and manufactured the Minotaur system were affiliated with the Tecton Order and so the chassis was eventually modified for a pure military use. The Minotaur Armoured Personnel Carrier was modified to carry Knight teams and all of their gear. It was also armed with a remote-controlled grenade launcher allowing it to use both frag and smoke grenades from a safe distance and often out of the line of sight. Its battlefield role quickly escalated into a support vehicle which prompted the addition of a short-range drone bomber piloted by the crew of the vehicle.
The miniatures are supplied with their respective plastic bases, if the kit includes one. Miniatures supplied unpainted and unassembled. Resin miniatures might need some cleaning of flash residue from the casting process.
