I've been working on this army for many years now; they started as a 13th Company army when the Eye of Terror campaign came out back in '03. Since then I've modified the list across 3 codices but never actually completed them. Recently I dug them out, dusted them off and started repainting them.

They're a lost company, as mentioned, but one forged from the tattered remnants of many companies rather than a single company. Jorek, the wolf lord leading them, is 13th company, as are a handful of his warriors. Other companies have brought tanks, terminator armour, bikers, flyers etc and joined with Jorek and the others for mutual protection and survival.

Modelling-wise they use the old 13th company look of part Imperial part Chaos, with the various warriors each bearing different combinations.

Paint scheme is the Space Wolf legion colours; Mechanicus Standard grey, badab black wash, layer of Dawnstone. Chaos parts are painted a Chaos Legion, except Death Guard or Emperor's Children.

My painting skills desperately need improving, particularly looking at a model up close

Lemme know what you think!

These are my first completed squad, Greywolf's Pack. Grey Hunters with a battle leader.
All my squads have standards, something left over from the previous codex, and it helps to make them stand out on the tabletop

And one for the treadheads- picked up the Chapterhouse rhino kit and even put it on a rhino a while ago, just found it in a box. Thinking I'll turn it into an old school Razorback, the open topped turreted ones, with lascannon/ twin plasma gun.

Here's how it currently looks:

Just started painting another couple of rhinos, no pics yet, but was hoping for some ideas from you guys; I know such a flat expanse of a single colour can look dull and boring, any ideas on sprucing it up? I was thinking shields and pack markings, but I don't want to go too crazy, they're supposed to be feral but still functional.

Also, dug out my old 'counts-as' Lone Wolf. Hope you like him.

(I apologise for the picture quality, it's taken from my phone. I'd buy an actual camera but I'm hanging out for Santa)

Last one before bed for the day!

Going to greenstuff the gaps between plasticard and model and hopefully get it smooth enough to look like there was never a gap there in the first place

And a few more tanks pics. This is another Chapterhouse kit, I think. Not on their site anymore. Was planning on using it for 30K, but since decided to add it to the great company.

These two, a Baneblade and a Leman Russ, came from a friend who got out of the hobby a few years ago. They're a bit dinged up and missing some pieces.

I had to rebuild the Russ with plasticard for a fair number of bits. I'm not sure on the track covers, they need further work it's true.

The Baneblade was being rebuilt as a Fellblade until Forgeworld released theirs. Now it's going to be a Baneblade with unusual bitz on it

After 40ish hours awake and painting for most of it, I think it's time to sleep....
Anywho onto the painted goodness!
The old school Razorback I'm working on has a coat of paint and detail added to it, and I've built the turret. The Long Fangs in the picture are the squad that will be using the tank.

Also, in honour of the new Blood Angels codex, my counts-as Astorath the Grim, Idolaf Sternhammer and one of his wulfen guard (Death Company)

Automatically Appended Next Post:
So, no pics just a basic list of what I have to paint:

Great Company, Apocalypse
The Black Rage, Apocalypse
Catachan Ambush Patrol, Apocalypse
Predator Assassin Squadron
Armoured Vanguard Squadron, Apocalypse

And that's just for starters!

Catachans are my allied Fenrisian Thrall units, Death Company are Wulfen.

Some Forgeworld goodness; a Land Raider Achilles Alpha, Cataphractii Terminators and the Mk IV command set arrived today

The Achilles and Cataphractii are going towards my Winterborn; a siege assault army using the forgeworld rules and Chapter Tactics: Carcharodons. I want to see what an entire 10-man assault terminator unit with lightning claws and cataphractii armour looks like! Also picked up some 3rd party fur bitz since my greenstuff skills are questionable at best.

The Mk IV is being set aside for another project, later. Trying to keep everything focused on the wolves for now

Along the way I've also created some of the enemies of my lost companies; some just generic bad guys like the Black Legion Sorcerer, others foes worthy of a saga of their own, such as K'zarr'ok the Bloodtide.

My first few Fenrisian Thralls. The guy with the heavy bolter is Ufberth Ironhide, my take on Gunnery Sergeant Harker. The gent with the white beard is a Thrall Skald, charged with singing the sagas of the worthy and great. His presence inspires nearby Thralls to fight the harder, hoping it will be them he sings of! In rules terms, he's a commissar. The Jotunbrud with the shield and mace is my Bullgryn Bone 'Ead. I made him from a minotaur. He's the first of several I plan to make

Thanks Lady Mournival, I shall keep updating!

The razorback, now christened Ansilvund (Thanks, Skyrim!) is almost done, as are the two rhinos I started for my Winterborn company. I started work on a new character, Holgir Bearclaw, the Keeper, for another part of the company, and I'm working on a side armour door/gun piece for a scratchbuilt land raider.
Thoughts, questions, criticisms and advice are always welcome!

Merry Christmas to all!

Pretty sure I just had a post go AWOL... apologies if this is a reprint....

So, all my Christmas money is now gone, spent on 32mm bases for my power armoured marines...
While the change annoyed me at first, it means I can get scenic on those beasts! I have some scenic bases already and for a few of them the 25mm was just too small. Hopefully 32mm helps there.

I'm now working on the Wild Hunt, a company entirely composed of Thunderwolf riders and Fenrisian wolves. They used to be the Canis Wolfborn build from the 5th ed codex, now they're being built up into a Wolfpack Flanking force.

Also, I have an Iron Priest, Hogni Halfman, and Thrall-Servitors. Hogni needs a smallish repaint and I never did finish the Thralls, but they'll be taking up my time until the new bases arrive

In the fluff I've written for my companies, they have a small fleet of mostly recaptured ships. One of them was a ship of the Ordo Hospitaller, now turned over to the Wolf Priests. In the dark laboratories aboard, they craft new Space Wolves from the Thrall population and genetically modify -or create from scratch- new war beasts. Which is why my 'thunderwolves' are so varied.
It also explains this guy!

I either use the Creature Feature rules from WD 292 if my opponent is okay with that, or the Ork Squiggoth rules from Forgeworld (the little Squiggoth, not the gargantuan one)

This update brought to you by Insomnia! I've heard it said sleep is for the weak. Whoever said that was an idiot!
So, unable to sleep, I grabbed a whiskey and made my way to the office. This is what I've come up with. Some of them are old projects I dusted off and photographed. The Chaos dudes, Thrall flamer and sergeant and, to a lesser extent, the Wolf Brothers, are examples of this.
Others, like the Swiftclaws and Thralls, were barely clipped, cleaned and glued before the camera came out.
But enough talk! Pics or it didn't happen!

Hey RBeijers, sorry I missed you on the first read through, thanks for having a look!

My Thralls continue to grow, as do all aspects of the company really. Just finished building a re-captured Ork tank that, for now, counts as a Whirlwind.
I've also decided to build the Winterborn units as 40K/ 30K units, so all their wargear and builds has to match both timelines! I'm using the Forgeworld Siege Assault Vanguard list for 40K, and since you can't use Space Wolves to build that list, I've gone with Chapter Tactics: Carcharodons. I have some plans to build Wolf Lord Arstan Winterborn, who will be a Legion Praetor or Tyberos the Red Wake, out of the Legion Praetor in Cataphractii armour, Lufgt Huron's Ghost Razors, a chainfist, and furry bitz. Watch this space....
The Winterborn Einherjar, a trio of dreadnoughts, count as a Legion Dreadnought Talon in 30K and Siege Dreadnought Talon in 40K. The two I have are nearly done, but I need to get a third. Probably going to corrupt a Furioso for that honour, since it's the only dreadnought kit with a right hand.

Last but not least, some of my old, need-a-repaint Blood Claws, from Ulfrid Traitorsbane's pack. These guys will definitely benefit from 32mm bases!

Hi Dakka!

More love for the Winterborn- Blackwolf's pack, an Honour Guard squad with Relic Blades. The third guy is the standard bearer, and he'll have his blade over his shoulder like he doesn't have a care in the world. I have no idea if this is a viable build for an Honour Guard squad but I like the idea of berserkers with two handed swords
