So today I started doing work on my space wolves, managing to look through what could be salvaged from my old models and sadly...I feel that very little can be. My grey hunters seem fine, but it is the blood claws I have problems with. So with that in mind, I decided to build a new squad of them with the 10 I got with Stormclaw (plus the handful I saved). Also I have built my thunderwolves (still need to GS the gaps and whatnot) and a squad of Grey Hunters is currently in the strip pot (well the 6 that are painted) but I wish to show you all everything that I have finished building.

My bloodclaws with Terminator Wolf Guard. (the ones in black are my original colour scheme.....I was young and I hated painting).

IMG_20140915_170716_zps30b026b6.jpg

Next my Wolf lord himself. So far his wolf is a real patchwork of green because there were a few gaps I had to fill, and the machanical jaw needed filling in (I want his thunderwolf unblemished)

IMG_20140915_170830_zps509572ed.jpg

Wolf Guard Terminators, the squad leader in the center has been built from an old terminator (as in, before we had our own kit) and with a little SW flair, he fits right in with the rest of them. Also, annoyed that the kit only has 4 storm sheilds :(

IMG_20140915_171133_zpsa46c6e4e.jpg
And finaly my rune preist (whoes body has been gracefully donated from Krom). Proud of how he came out and I cannot wait to test deamon summoning with him (no I am not heretical, just going to use thier rules to represent the spirits of fenris coming to his aid).

Anyway, sorry for the poor quality of pictures, its late in the day and I only had 3 hours sleep to correct my sleep pattern.

That's a good looking Taurox. I'm glad someone in the Imperium has figured out how to put wheels on a truck. Figures it would be a regiment who take their sermons from large dogs and drop horse artillery from aircraft.

Just a quick update of my secound day of building (hurray for days off work).

IMG_20140917_152902_zps51e5cdcd.jpg

My thunder wolves with the gaps filled in on thier heads and some fur added to the riders. Pretty much had to on the storm shield, chipped a bit off while cutting it from the sprue.

IMG_20140917_152732_zpseb660d30.jpg

My first lot of grey hunters, ready to drop pod in, melt a vehicle and then fight thier way back out again.

IMG_20140917_152617_zpse54bdba8.jpg

And finaly my dreadnought, now all wolfed up and with a converted Helfrost cannon. Remember the days when we didnt have our own kit and it took actual work to convert our dudes to look like space wolves?

Anyways, also note my "banner thrall". This little guy is going to be 10pts spent to hold my home objective while the rest of my army moves in and cute them down in the midfeild, epecialy if he is behind something, then they have to actualy use a unit to go and dig him out.

Thought I would do an update on my work so far. Been buisy this last month and have painted all the regular infantry and my first pack of thunderwolves

 

IMG_20141013_154737_zpsad0b2b64.jpg

 

First my small pack of Grey hunters and wolf standard.

Dont know how well you can see, but I am really proud of how this horn came out

Close up of the wolf standard

 

IMG_20141013_154922_zps83c30217.jpg

 

The thunder wolves

 

IMG_20141013_155022_zps81beab34.jpg

 

The other squad of Grey hunters. These guys cant hit with the melterguns, but its only been a couple of games.

 

IMG_20141013_155237_zpsff0f94d4.jpg

 

The Bloodclaws, note that the wolf guard has changed to be with power armour. In play testing the ability to over run is a godsend and I keep on failing 2+ saves anyway

Just posting some objective markers for a tournament I will be entering in 3 weeks time. Not proud of the thousand son objectives as the gold is a little too runny. Any advice on how to fix that when painting gold on large areas?

From the pictures, the gold looks spot on, at least for the helmet.

 

Have you diluted the gold at all, or is it just really runny from the pot? Is it in need of a good stir to get the medium mixed through it properly?

Is the gold going streaky and needing multiple coats to get an even finish?

 

You could always paint the gold areas first then do the blue after to tidy it all up, it might save you having to go back and forth all the time if the stirring doesn't work.

 

Oh & I forgot to say, your Space Wolves are looking good! thumbsup.gif

Just a suggestion for painting gold- Try base coating those gold areas with a dark brown color first (I like old Citadel "Scorched Brown," which is equal to Vallejo Game Color "Charred Brown.), then use multiple coats of your gold on top of that.

Ironwolf and Dantay said it already, but as someone who hates painting gold but has an exessive amount of it in all my miniatures, I highly recommend mixing a base brown color (I use Mournfang Brown) with gold (about 60/40 ratio) and after that is dry then adding the pure gold layer. This already gives some natural shading/highlighting to the gold since the recesses should remain darker (browner) due to the gold paint properties (I overbrush by the way).

 

Also when painting I use Agrax Earthshade to shade my power armor so I always paint the gold parts at the very beginning and shade them simultaneously with the armor plates.

 

Nice looking wolves there. I am particularily fond of the Wolf Banner - it is very nice. I also like the Helfrost cannon conversion a lot. Where is the wolf head from?

 

And also it is nice to see creative uses for the Krom body bits!

The wolf head is from the old wolf model. You can still get them with goblin wolf riders but I dont know if they come with the alternate heads

Well been painting like mad to get everything done for the tournament in 2 weeks so I present to you what I will be using. Not great I know, but its all I own that can be feilded effectivly (Idealy I would not have the terminators but I lone wolf and anouther pack of grey hunters in a drop pod, but since I only have one drop pod its sadly not an option).

You could try mixing your gold with some bronze then after that dries, go over it again with just the gold.  Most bronze paints I get seem to run thick while yellows and golds run thin for some reason.  Somewhere between a 3 and 5 to 1 ration of gold to bronze to get the proper "feel" for your taste.  I also base coat with a neutral gray.


Just leave me some ammo, a little water.........and some chips if you got 'em.

At the moment my gold is fine on small areas. Will go over my objective markers when I have the time. Who knows I may need it on my dreadnought or logan (as I intend to get him as his model is so cool)
