Hey guys, I need advice on two things.
1: Advice on how to get players who have the right armies to play a Badab War Campaign.
2: Advice on collecting the Minotaurs Chapter (which I'm starting soon)

I'm not sure. I simply have those chapter rules for the 6th edition codex (though I did once try to incorporate Asterion Moloc in my Crimson Fists while I had the 5th edition codex for awhile. That was neat).

Now I read over the CT: Minotaurs, and it seems like it's just a couple bonuses that don't really give focus on making a list. What did you want to incorporate exactly?

Space Marines, Veterans (Vanguard and Terminator), and Land Raiders. Oh and Asterion Moloc+Ivanus Enkomi

Easiest way to get players is just asking them.. Cookies might help too ;)

The problem is, there are only other players I know who have Badab war armies. One has Charcharadons and the other is considering starting a Salamanders army. There aren't any seccesionists or Red Scorpions.

In that case, just recruit Space Marine (and a token Guard) player, regardless of colour scheme. The Imperial Fists never rebelled against the Imperium alongside the Blood Angels, while fighting the Space Wolves, Sons of Orar and Black Templars? They did in your universe! :)

I'm trying to make this as fluff-accurate as possible, draconian though that might sound.

Why not use the alternate campaign set from IA:9 - it even suggests alternate forces.

Our club started a Badab War campaign last night. We have 3 for each side and 5 of us are doing forces loyal to the fluff and one is going to repaint his Ultramarines into Nova marines. We did start planning this back in september and are having dedicated campaign nights every 2 months, increasing game sizes by 250pts per phase so it keeps people plodding away at their armies.

So you're going to buy and paint all the forces required? Because that's the only option for you.
