I know people will see the link and think "oh frag, another Space Wolves army, has he no imagination blah blah etc" but I am hoping by putting this here, it can show a little diversity and individualism from the norm. I also appreciate anyone and everyone's input into this, because although Imight have some strong ideas about what i want in certain aspects, sometimes an alternate view can highlight a flaw or make a good idea better.

Anyways....

I have been putting my wolves army together over a number of years, I dont know about anyone else, but i get really enthused when i do the building, but when i see all the painting to be done i get kinda nervous/ put off.

Anyways, I have bitten the bullet so to speak and started getting the painting done. Most of these models are incomplete but almost done. Any tips/ comments would be greatly appreciated.

Or go to page 3 to get a better idea of where I am at and why I am starting again/ afresh.

Thanks in advance.

I know exactly what you mean when you say that you're enthused for the building but not at all for the painting...

Looking good, though I will say that the power armor is looking a little dark compared to what I think of "space wolves gray". If you don't mind me asking, what color/manufacturer are you using for it?

" border="0" />

The first of many thunderwolves. I got 4 from gamesroomclearout2010, and got another few on order......... does anyone know where I an get some smaller wolves to act as a meat shield???

Again, any tips, comments would be greatly appreciated

Hi Econtutor

I use black as a basecoat, then heavy drybrush fenris grey on top, shade it down with a badab black wassh then light drybrush fenris grey again.
Light drybrushing of fenris grey/ space wolf grey for highlights.

I get overeager and start to build an army then when i see the paintwork involved i back off a bit, but i feel embarassed when i see all my friends armies at the gaming table, that i need to give it a go.

I am actually finding it quite therapeutic

Hey hamhamlunchbox.

I have actually been following your blog, and love the wolves you are making up, I especially like the battle damage and detailing of the hatches on your predator (the lenses the crew use to view)

Your mkV armour variants are awesome too.

I will consider your suggestion, it looks good.

I have posted a few more pics of my dread and the thunderwolves i recently got. Hope you like them

" border="0" />

This is my dread, he is sometimes used as Bjorn the Fell-handed, which is where the Wolf Claw came from, otherwise he is Irnst the indomitable. I want to re-do the banner as it was rushed and looks weak compared to the rest of the model

" border="0" />

The Wolf Claw, deceptively simple to make, this is a mark 1, I have a mark 2 in the pipeline...... this time using a venerable arm, with the fist, a terminator storm shield heat wrapped around the arm and 3 slightly longer blades to match the fingers..... will post a pic when it is done.

" border="0" />

Shield was just an idea to count as extra armour.

" border="0" />

My 4 thunderwolves are almost complete, any ideas for names???

" border="0" />

Rideres need finishing off. Thanks to gamesclearout2010 for the wolves.

" border="0" />

I tried to make them as individual as possible, the black 1 is in honour of my friends dog Odie, and also in homage to the black wolf that dies at the beginning of 300 (not to mention blackmaned fenrisian wolves)

Again all feedback is welcome.

I'm digging the dread! I think a "how to" on the claw would make a great update.

Hi Econtutor,

Yeah, I just thought the claw was more fitting somehow.

To make the claw itself is very easy.
1 Storm shield from the space wolves sprue, 4 zombie scythe blades, a small amount of green stuff 1 dreadnought close combat arm.
You do not really need to file down the hand on the shield as you need it raised for the claws.
Form a square or shield shaped piece of green stuff and attach to the shield. Make sure you have extra due to the curvature of the arm.
Attach to the arm, try to keep the green stuff as smooth as possible, i made mine to fit as if it is clamped on so the arm is more bulked up. Think like the wrist thing the Predator has to activate the nuclear device or heal himself.
Snip the scythe blades from the scythe, and using glue or green stuff, attach them to the wolf claw housing. Jobs a goodun!!!

My dread only has 2 finger thingies because mine went missing, so i used a trygon alpha's mandible bits to make some, i think it looks okay.
If you wanted to get a bit fancier you could use guitar wire as power cabling and run it uo the arm like the heavy flamer tubing.
As i said deceptively simple.

I will try to use a terminator storm shield next time and 3 bigger claws to mirror the fingers on a venerable dreadnought arm, i think it will look awesome.
Another nice ad simple conversion i have done on a metal SW dread was to lop off the old claws and just attach zombie scythe blades to make them very long and wicked.

I think the dread in the codex with the skaven blades on its fist looks lame as its not really wolfy, Does anyone else agree??

Btw if you have pics of conversions you have tried please feel free to put them here.

This site is a great place for new ideas and from what i have seen of people like hamhamlunchbox, gitsplitta, sons of orar, blackhand, econtutor and a ton of others i could mention its inspirational to see how some guys envisage the world of warhammer 40k and their interpretation. I am new here but i am loving it.

So thoughts views, ideas opinions c&c all welcome. Oh and names for my 4 thunderwolves too please!!

LOL long reply over, until next time

Okay, so I really need some help!!!!

I am looking to build up a dreadnought, and make the mark 2 wolf claw arm, (plus take pics to make a tutorial) but i need a few parts, can anyone help me please????

I really do not want to spend a bucket load of money on buying a dread for 1 arm and a bunch of zombies so........

I need a venerable dreadnought humanised hand piece. I could also do with some zombie scythes.

I am willing to buy/ trade for these parts..... i have a selection of old SM captain/ sergeant models....... very old metal termies and old SW terminators/ SM's and other stuff.

If anyone can help please I'd be forever grateful.

Also on the scrounge for norse marauder stuff too

Okay, so i got impatient..... and my wife will not let me buy another dread, so I am beginning to work on the hand by other methods.
I have an old metal space wolf dread, so I will use that and scavenge all i can from him.

So first off is the hand.... I will make it from scatch with emissaryofdark's help (teaching me to sculpt) tonight we put the basic outline into place for building up the hand.
To do this i removed the claws and filed the surfaces flat.
" border="0" />
et voila, now we are ready to make a hand.
To get the general shape of a hand can you guess what i used???
" border="0" />
Yup you clever puppies, i used the corner sections of the sprue frame.

And this is how it looked when we were done.
" border="0" />
" border="0" />
This give us a rough outline of the hand and from here we get to play with green stuff, i will try to keep you posted on how i get on.

PS, here is a longfang emissaryof dark made for me.... its nuts isn't it?? I love it
" border="0" />

As usual any feedback would be great, whether its positive or negative...... feel a bit like i am talking to myself sometime :(

Thanks regnak, in what way does the sword not look right? Is it the pose or the sword itself? i.e. not a chainsword.

For me, i think its the left leg pose, it makes him look less like he is charging and more like he is falling forward, plus i cant figure out how to sculpt the (now redundant) toe claws on his boot.

Anybody got any ideas how to sculpt/ sort it?

I think the pose looks fine, just mean the sword itself.. just doesn't look right... looks like a generic medieval sword and should be something more special. Doesn't need to be a chainsword but I think shape needs to be different. Other than that very minor issue I like what you have done

Cool, I tried the emperors champion sword as it was left over from converting him to a wolf priest. I do kinda see where you are coming from.

Okay, new sword time

Apart from Abaddons all consuming sword of doom, any ideas on what would give him an edge (geddit?? giggles) and look really cool??

Am running a bit slow just now, been playing a few games to get a feel for the army, plus mass repairs of my wolves (fixing up around 18 packs of SW's takes a lot of work, glad my friend helped out) but should get back on track over the next few days with more piccies

@Thanks Asherian command, glad you like them.

@Glimpse the void: let me know what angles and i will try to help you out with pics.
Go for it with the marauder stuff, it looks really cool.

My army idea is 1st war of Armageddon, so it will be a mix of diferent companies fighting together, so bbikers will belong to Egil Krakendoom
Scouts belong to Erik Morkai

Was wondering about the wolf on the Land Raider... shoud i paint it in flame colours or leave it white to match the Wolf Guard unit riding within?

Should I paint the white wolfs head on the Land raider in Flame colours for fun or leave it white, as the termies inside have white wolves on their shoulderpads?

Ive always thought that using pieces from chaos kits on rough arrmies like the space wolves is always a good idea. I don't mean making the wolves look like chaos but just little details like the clips of the chaos bolters hanging freely or changing a chaos backpack and putting it on the marines.

Anyway great army so far, the dread looks really good!

Thanks killakan, i am glad you like them, the marauder stuff rocks on them as does the application of a few dwarf parts for the more ornate wargear.
i would draw the line though at chaos backpacks as it breaks up the silhouette too much and chaosifies them.
High rimmed shoulder pads or boltpistol arms withtyhe gloves are good.... beyond that is into the realms of the 13th company.

Anyways questions that need answers and you (yes even you!!!) can help here:

1. Which scout colour scheme do you guys prefer, lighter or darker greys?

B. Any ideas for Thunderwolf names. I have 4 thunderwolves now (another 2 on the way) and so far 1 is called Odin, but I need 4 more names (Geoff, Spot, Patch and Rover just aren't scary enough)

C. The Ragnar conversion... if I was to swap out the sword, what should it be swapped for?? Another sword but what style, or even should it be a sword???

4. Flames on the Land Raider or No?

And another thing. Does the old Ragnar look okay? should i keep him in the army? And if so, should the conversion become a new wolflord in his own right???

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Thanks for the good look D. It's good to see what a well wolfed land raider is suppose to look like as I move forward. Also, I am going to be modeling bikes at some point too, so bring it on.

IMO
1. Dark colors for scouts, it suits their stealthy you can't see me nature, and general "doesn't play well with others" type attitude.
2. Go w/ norse mythology, or Scandinavian names in general. This website is cool. http://www.pantheon.org/areas/mythology/europe/norse/articles.html
3. If it's gotta be a sword, see if you can get one of those Rad WOC ones. I say go with an Axe, but that's just my own taste.
4. Do you mean painted flames, or modeling a gout of flames from your cannons? I think that painted flames would be to much, but I am considering modelling flames for my reedemer.

@ glimpse the void. Thanks for the compliments... I have been watching your thread too, and the fact you built yoiur own land raider sorta blows my mind as for the most part yoiu cannot notice the difference between it and the gw one.
As you have gone this far with it, maybe splurge on some forge world brass etchings for it.... i think i might for mine to make a bit more wolfified. Although as it stands it is fine just now...

For flames how about a little cotton wool on the flamestorm cannons barrels, bunch it tight for when you spray it black, then when you unfurl it you get nice black and grey wispy smoke bits... although i recommend you try it on something else before sticking it to the tank, then some slight discolouration at the barrel tips.

Your scouts look like they could take a world on their own, i really like what you did with the marauder kits, and i assume it is ice blue yoiu are using to create the blue glow effect on your models.... it makes the models jump out and give yoiu a focal point for them. Its amazing how diverse even 1 sm chapter can be.
Btw I also like the drop pods of yours but they need a little neatening up.

And i like your ideas too.... keep them coming!! Everyone please.

1 last question though: Does anyone know where i can get a lot of good norse/ celtic designs?... I have an idea to use them on vehicles, like i tried on the land raider for their top hatch and/ or rear doors. I found a few tattoo's but struggling foor good images... any tis would be ACE!!

Man alive killakan, that is awesome stuff, i especially like some of the designs on page 11, they could be adapted for use on a rhino or something.

The round ones are quite complex, but simplified versions could work on shields or tank hatches.

Thanks I really appreciate it, folks better watch out, theres some painting to come soon.

B. Any ideas for Thunderwolf names. I have 4 thunderwolves now (another 2 on the way) and so far 1 is called Odin, but I need 4 more names (Geoff, Spot, Patch and Rover just aren't scary enough)



I had meant to mention that I picked out a few names for characters in my army. Fubar Doommaw: Lord on Bike, Soren Crow's Eye: Rune Priest, and Mjollner: Machine Spirit of my new Land Raider redeemer

Hey man, your force is looking pretty sweet and theres some awesome conversions in there..

I totally know what you mean, i love putting together models especially converting my own versions, but the painting feels like a mountain to climb...

great work mate..

For the Thunderwolves, if you're going Norse, then why not have a family troupe on the go? You've got Odin, if i remember my mythology right, you've got Ve and Vili as Odin's brothers, maybe take one of his sons along too? Perhaps Baldur?

My 2p for your consideration

Plenty of names to grab out there anyways! Loving the work so far mate, keep it up

Nice work mate.

Regarding normal wolves, the cheapest option is probably a box of goblin wolf riders and throw the goblins away.

I admit they are a bit mono-pose but if you want a shed load of them thats no really an issue

Hi guys, no real update as i spent the weekend with ickle Ben (my 8 month old son) and wifey (both living with my folks while i work away) so no modelling.

@Jimmy72nd, glad i am not the only 1 to go through this and welcome to the club.... glad you like the models too.

@glimpse the void... your link to the Norse names is great, I am certainly going to be using it in the future to name most if not all the Space Wolves and the names you have chosen for yours is cool.

@Marushi It sounds like a great idea to do that and again I am glad you like what you are seeing. I hope to get more on the net soon.

@Emmkay That is also a grand idea, if you look at the 4 thunderwolves that i have they are all identical bar the paintjob, so monopose isnt too bad as you can get round that with a variety of paintjobs.

My next (next??? what about all that painting i hear you cry) mini-project is to take the Ragnar conversion, change out the weapon and head-swap, plus redo the shouilder pad to create Bran Redmaw. The Ragnar of old is too nice to leave in a box, so I decided to use him unmodified.

Dantay's top tip: Do not invest time or money in a GW airbrush... I am on my 3rd as the others were defective. I wasted a bunch of propellant and paint, to get only 1 side of my 20 termies done. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

If you are looking for regular wolves on the cheaps, I recommend picking up a box of Chaos Warhounds. They are priced well and look so damn mean. The mutations are glued on separately so you wouldn't have to use them. They don't have tails, so you'd have to either green stuff some or just not worry about.
