To start off I really _HATE_ how silly GW keep making the Wolves, I've always seen them as brutal vikings (I bet most of us have) and yet they keep modelling them as psychotic punkers... So, when i bought my first box of Wolves today I decided that ALL non-helmeted heads will be getting REAL beards and LONG hair as oppossed to the horrific creations that GW tossed out to us.

A very early WIP of the first Wolf:

I am aware of the "bulb" at the bottom of the beard, it has been removed and everything will be smoothed as soon as the GS dries completely.

So I haven't gotten any painting done yet, just some starting hair overhauls and general posture changes to some models...
They are not on bases yet because I want them in semi-deep snow and I need to get supplies for that ^^,

Anyway, enough rambling, here's the first 6 (the rest will be done modeled by Wednesday I hope):





















So, what input do you guys have thus far?
The wolf guard with dual wolf claws have frizzy hair, I know... It will be smoothed out later
I'm still learning to really do cool things with green stuff (for someone who's been into the hobby since 2nd edition it feels like I should've learned earlier... right? )

C&C wanted and appreciated..

Have gotten more work done now during the morning...

I know it's hard to extinguish but all the GS isn't his hair, a huge chunk of it is the wolf's pelt (the wolf whose skull rests on his right shoulder)











This is on a different space wolf (obviously ) but I'm not satisfied so I'll try a thin rope approach rather than the thicker band approach sown here:




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Yes I will, if I can get them done on time

I will also aim for a Wolf Priest or a Wolf Lord for the singles category

And also..
Got one more done now before I had to run out to do all the stuff needed to be taken care of today. Will hopefully get more up tonight.

Was real tricky to not have the green stuff break when doing the twisting since it had to be so thin to fit into the hole



I'm waay happier with this than the previous result:

Oh my god I hate you so much, Müller.

Literally, I wish I could beat you upon the head and shoulders for this.

Amon Amarth is the end-all-be-all for metal, as far as I am concerned and that song is among their best (hell, so is their whole new album!).

And you MET Johan Hegg. Damn.

Well, now that I am done with all that, I like what you have done. The only thing I dislike is the knife strapped to the leg. The greenstuff just looks off there for some reason. I don't think they need to lash stuff like that down when a few well-placed screws can hold them to the armor.

Just an observation.

Screws!!? These are the emperor's finest! And the emperor demands moar rivets!!!


Anyway, nice greenstuff work, i'm not a fan of the current GW SW hairstyles either.

Exactly what Im trying to go for, a more feral look than the sophisticated wolves gw delivered to us..
IF I get scouts (that's a biiig IF) they will most likely consists of 75% chaos marauder parts, 10% Space Wolf Parts and the rest will be GS..
I still have a ton of those bits since I played Chaos in WHFB way back in the day, might as well come to some use, eh? ;P

Alrighty, I've gotten more modelling done today... YAY!







I found Inquisitor Lord Coteaz in my bitz box, having only used his thunder hammer for my Ultramarines captain many years ago I realized that i wanted to make him a Wolf Priest (To use in lower point games mostly).
He is my tribute to one of the most awesome characters in the Swedish TV series "Hem Till Midgård" ("Back Home In Midgaard" in English), the character "Gammelman" ("Old Timer" in English), he's the village's Shaman (or Wolf Priest one might say)..

Here's a short clip; he's the one in the middle

(I just noticed that you can't really tell, but I have actually removed all =][= iconography from him, so there will be no need to mention that part )


Input is, as always, appreciated and encouraged.

I don't like his iron cross. Perhaps trash it for a pendant of some Norse rune or perhaps a wolf tooth?

Yeah, I'm debating on that as well, I will be casting some runestones in GS, and I might give him one, or as you said, a wolf tooth

EDIT:
And oh yeah, I WILL be removing the nipples from his armor as well

Love the idea for the wolf priest so i may be forced to 'borrow' it.

I know it's been a while but here comes a semi-update:

I've bought and built 5 sweet CC kitted Space Wolf Guards in Terminator armour. Would love some input on what to do with them GS wise











I wasen't satisfied with how the Wolf Priest first came out so I decided to do some more work on him..
Anybody has a crozius for sale?



And my beloved GF came home with an early "Midwinter Sacrifice" (we don't celebrate xmas, we celebrate the Norse "Midvinter Blot") gift:

First up, please tell your GF that she rocks, on behalf of all 10,000 Dakka users!

So- missed the wolf scouts when you posted them. Those guys are amazing! Man, that kit is great when some care and adaptation is applied to it (and the ridiculous Buzz Lightyear heads are discarded).

Somehow the termis just aren't as gripping as the other SW that you've done. Some more GS fur could probably help there.

Infinity: Way, way better than 40K and more affordable to boot!

Some suitibly massive back pelts for the termies IMO. They're already fantastic models and'll only get better with your GS skills.

Yes she does indeed ^^,

I was thinking something along the lines of massive backpelts as I feel that the backpelt that comes with the termies looks ridiculous..

I will prob. be adding about halv a mm of plasticard to their feet to make them a tad taller than they already are, might repose one of the LC wielding termies (the 4th down) by using GS to fill the gaps.
