I finally finished my Wolf Lord! There was a lot of trial and error with the flags, feathers, reins, and sleeves but overall i'm happy with the result!
Spoiler:




I also finished 2 more bloodclaws. I tried out a different type of sleeve and I like how it came out, i'll just make it slightly larger to fit the profile of a regular pauldron.
Spoiler:



Now i'm going to continue with the Wulfen and bloodclaws, then a WGBL on a thunderwolf. But what I really want to do is a ton of Thunderwolf cavalry! The only thing holding me back is their point cost currently in game, but I expect they will drop in points once the CA19 FAQ comes out. It's just a wish listing, but the Wolf Lord and WGBL on a Thunderwolf saw a points decrease, The SS also dropped in points for the thunderwolf cavalry!

Those do look nice. I'd say just do the bunch of thunderwolves, even if the FAQ doesn't drop them, a new edition in the future might do something to bring them back to being hordable, and in the meantime, you've got more awesome looking conversions you enjoy doing.

Small update:
I never really looked up the other armies like Chaos, Tau ,Tyrinids etc, but I just discovered bloodcrushers! What I find funny about it is that on the same day I bought my SW codex I met a guy and he gave me codex chaos Daemons and some other indexes for free, but I never read them! I looked up some conversion people have done and I ordered a box. I'm going to try to put my spin on them like my Wolf Lord. Here is a link I found http://www.lounge.belloflostsouls.net/showthread.php?10266-Loyalist-thunderwolf-conversion&p=98295 I like how they smoothed the armor but i'll add cloth to the armor instead of fur, and swap out the head.
Spoiler:
Credit to isotope99 on BOL Loyalist thunderwolf conversion

If it doesn't work out i'll try out the legs on a regular Thunderwolf to see how that looks.

I lost interest them in a faction when GW decided they must have the word wolf in everything, and then ride into battle on wolves.

I put together the first Thunderwolf/Bloodcrusher conversion. I cut off spikes, sanded down edges, and filled in Icons. I also replaced the hooves with the cyber paws the Thunderwolves have. Duplicating the paws came out alright but I didn't cut off enough off the top of the paws before gluing them on, so the angles I put them on is causing the Thunderwolf to stand on the tips of it's claws. But I still like how it came out! It's taller then a regular Thunder wolf but thats mostly from it standing on its claws. Next Ill try adding the Bloodcrusher legs onto a regular Thunderwolf and see how that looks.

I have continued test fitting Bloodcrusher legs on TWC bodies and I liked the results! Unfortunately TWC wolf bits are hard to get alone, stopping short of buying a whole new kit. So I have started to duplicate the wolf torso using insta mold and green stuff. I first tried making 2 halves of the mold them putting them together with mixed results, I didn't put enough green stuff so it came out a bit thin and flimsy.There probably is a better way of duplicating parts but I'm working with what I have on hand, I still decided to use it and just add more to the inside to stiffen it. after adding the bloodcrusher's back legs I really liked the look of it. the piston fits right under the saddle and doesn't get in the way of the rider's legs.


I covered the whole where the arms go with a pit of plastic so I wouldn't use too much green stuff trying to fill it in. The up side to having a thin shell was that it was easy to cut and I didn't feel like I was wasting to much.

Here is the progress so far. The cloth is supposed to be like the Caparison part of the Barding (war Horse body armor). I'll add armor and some more cloth around the head to blend it more with the body.

Here is the progress so far, I extended the Caparison onto the head, but I let it hang instead of closing it at the bottom. it looks like a sheet draped over the wolf, so I quickly drew a plan to fix it, like closing the front, adding armor on top of the head, and chain reins.

Spoiler:



And here is the next step:

I have learned some valuable lessons with this thunderwolf, like finishing details to the inside of the armor legs before attaching it to a model because now its hard to reach. adding or smothing surfaces before adding to it because it will really show up under the greenstuff cloth i'm trying to add.

Quick summary: I'm making a new Count as Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf with TH/SS


Inspiration struck me recently, I wanted to have a werewolf HQ but sadly GW has yet to make one for SW. So The Idea was to make an awesome Wolf Lord on Thunderwolf to lead the chapter. The first step was looking at what other people are doing to get inspiration. There are plenty of Space wolves conversions. I came across 2 guys with the same awesome Idea for a Wulfen conversion (warning large images)
Spoiler:

@blightforge on Instagram


@heresy_by_royal_gear on Instagram


But what really got my attention were these incredible conversion by mayajid
Spoiler:



Now that is what I want for a Wolf Lord! The next step, find a model to covert. I was looking for a monster or beast that could pass as a super human mutant. I looked at GW's whole range of both 40k and AOS, and I decided on...
Spoiler:
Ogroid Myrmidon

Here are the WIP pics
Spoiler:







The axe and shield from the wulfen dreadnought was a perfect fit! But I still have a lot of work to make him look more werewolf then Daemon, like adding more fur in patches around his body, replacing the hooves for paws, Fixing the shield, removing his tail and completing the tunic.

Still making progress on the Wulfen High Priest, I removed the hooves and made "feet/paws" but I need help deciding on what to put on his back.
A part of me Wants to leave his back bare, a mutated space wolf becoming a apex predator sort of vibe. I also made a "backpack" like regular marine, and I tried putting a Iron Halo and a trophy rack to see which was better.

the Feet/Paws. I like how they came out but I doubt I got the anatomy correct lol.
Spoiler:




The backpack versions. I wanted to mimic the regular wulfen with the tubes plugging them into the backpack. the Dreadnought Claw worked great, the tubes replace the claws and plug into the shoulders.
Trophy Rack

Iron Halo


they both are cool from the front but look cluttered in the back



I might abandon the backpack all together to find a smaller option to fit either the rack or halo.

Work, covid-19, and video games had me distracted for a while but I'm back!
I decided to remove the new shield and replace it with the shield that came with the model. I cut and sanded down the chaos runes, and added a wolf pelt. I made a quick mold to duplicate the original pelt so that I could make it thinner to better fit on the shield. Using the wolf head smoke launcher, I mounted the iron halo on the back. Cutting the axe in half was risky but it paid off, before it looked unwieldy but it can do some real damage now!






I'd say it's 80%dime before I attempt to paint it. I still need to fix the front of the belt, finish the rest of the robe, fill in runes on skin, and clean up.

What an absolutely wonderful idea. A werewolf as a Wolf Lord on a thunderwolf. Pardon me if I steal this idea and run with it. It looks like this guy is size comparable to a thunderwolf?

Apparently GW sells a box of just skull, I bought some and based the Wolf Lord, shamelessly copying the idea from the cover of the box. He was already the same height as a TWC model, but I did forget to add the Iron Halo.



here are close ups of the base:
Spoiler:





A lot more work needs to be done now to clean up the skulls. When I eventually get to painting i'm going to try to get the skulls to look old and have grass/shrubs growing over them, a ancient battle field he still protects. Other then that I did add a "belt buckle" to cover up the chaos symbol.

He now faces forward. I felt like it made him seem more like a threat.

I got excited when I saw that you had posted, and the update did not disappoint!

These look great. My only thought would be to add some bionics to the legs of the Wulfen Dreadnoughts (wires, or some metal, or something).. I don't think it necessitates it, but after extensive ogling by me, I started question the wulfen leg's ability to hold up the torso feature the dread hands. Maybe wires or tubes running from the power source/backpack thing on his waist?

yeah I was thinking of adding wires from I guess the power pack to those ports on the thighs but as for pistons on the legs I don't actually have bits like that currently but I'll see what I can do
