Ok I have finally made up my mind on army choice, the mighty and heroic Spacewolves. All I need now is to figure out which company. Any and all advise welcome. Also is there a way around painting them light blue (it sure isn't grey)?

Welcome Lone Scout! I wonder if you're not posting in the wrong forum? Not that i mind but i suspect you'd get more in depth answers in the Space Wolf forum.
About the paint i've seen good results from Shadow grey and blending up to Fortress grey.

If you don´t know, Whelp, how should we know? At the end it´s your Great Company. All you need to do is to choose a symbol for your xenos races and either bringing human-occupied planets into compliance or destroying them if they resisted.' class='bbc ipSeoAcronym'>GC cause with the exception of Ragnar´s Great Company there is not much official fluff for the GCs. And how you paint them it also much up to you. If have seen so many painting schema. For myself i like the pre-heresy schema and i use codex grey as my basic color. You should take a look here SW Gallery. I´m sure you will find some inspiration.

The last page of the Space Wolf codex, shows the grand annulus with the signs of the current 12 wolf lords. Several of these are represented by the decal sheet that’s available from GW. In addition to these 12 companies, many players chose their own symbol to represent a past. future, or unaccounted for company. Ragnar’s symbol is the most popular and used by GW in the codex and their studio army.

As for the color, any grey can do. Currently wolves range from the “official” blue-grey, to codex and fortress grey used most recently by the 13th Company. Mine are planned to use shadow grey as a basecoat over black. Then I’ll highlight with a 50/50 mix of Shadow Grey and Space Wolves Grey, and finally highlight the extreme sharp edges with space wolves grey.

Who says you have to pick one company? I collect about 4... lol.

Of course though, I do have nearly 8000 points of wolves right now.

Logan Grimnars company.... 2000 pts heavy with Wolf Guard Terminators, Grey Hunters, and Wolf Scouts, with some Long Fangs and dreadnaughts
to cover them.

Ragnar Blackmanes company... 2000 pts heavy on Blood Claws with just a few Wolf Guard (Ragnars Bodyguard) and just a few LFs and GH.

Engir Krackendooms company... 2000 pts heavy with vehicles and bikers... the Sea Wolf to me seemed the perfect symbol for a ship/speed company.

Jorin Bloodfangs company... 2000 pts of 13th Co fun.

Logans company is more of a codex grey, as is Jorins, almost a pre-heresy look.

Engirs wolves are more dark blue/grey, like deep ocean water.

Ragnars wolves are the 'traditional' space wolf grey.
For Russ! For the Wolftime! My wolves stand ready.

I like this idea alot...sorta like a Spacewolf navy. I like the idea of bikes and attack bikes too so this might be a good option.
Thanks everyone :tu:

It is a bit fun to play Lone Scout, although I must say that they might soon be second class... the White Scars get a new character in the new SM codex that will make the Scars a better choice I am sure... unless some of those same rules carry over to us.

If you do go for the Sea Wolf though, dont neglect the Land Speeders as well.... they are vital.

Here is my 2000 point Sea Wolf list.
