Set out with good intentions last night but did not achieve very much.

 

Got hair and faces done

Tried making them look like they were starting to go grey, which is why the hair is lighter close to the face rather than the tips. Almost as if they are transitioning to veteran/ Grey Hunter status.

 

Was a fun experiment, not sure how well I pulled it off.

 

One day I will try and paint eyes!!

So I should be working on my tale of hobbyists, but motivation is killing me, as is my wife and her censored.gif  dissertation.

 

So I started on a few bits

 

First up is Hvarl, Jarl of the 4th great company

 

I have based him off of Polux. He is quite a bit larger than a normal marine and same height as the Praetor in cataphractii armour.

I used a BoP tartaros as Hvarl is in Tartaros armour.

 

Early days, but this is the jist of it so far.

36273922146_866a53f91f_c.jpg20170801_184446 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Laurels and fist will go to make way for some norse runes or knots, and the script on the legs will be filled with liquid green stuff

 

I also considered using the fist for mounting the Heavy bolter and this is sort of where i got to.

36162584802_a922db71f1_c.jpg20170802_124856 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

I had some blight launcherd from soe Grave Wardens? but I feel like it is missing something. I like that the launcher has 2 mini drums and see that working well, but should I switch them out for one big HB drum? Alternatively I can see if I have any SW assault cannons kicking about and try to jury rig and ammo pack and belt feed, however the launcher comes with a mini drum attached so very careful cutting would be required (looking at my thumb should show you how good at delicate I am biggrin.png )

I am also considering shortening the barrel as it looks overlong on the arm very impractical, almost wish it was just a combi bolter like Logans. I cannot push it further back as it will interfere with the pads, so shortening the barrel might be the best option. Drilling the holes dos not really help disguise what it started life as does it?

 

Next is a moritat

 

Decided to change things up and got my hands on a vexillary, so decided he would make a nice moritat. Hated the pose as he felt like he was leaning backwards so clipped the rock underfoot to give him a more dynamic position. After chatting with the guys, the concensus was to go with the upgrade wolf helm. I am going with the twin plasma loadout but may magnetise the wrists so I can run twin volkite instead.

 

Also thinned and cut down the neck armour as it was way too restrictive to fit a helmet in.

35484865164_d8bd508f14_c.jpg20170801_230027 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Main issues with this guy will likely be head positioning and arms. Do I want him looking straight ahead both arms forwards blazing away, or do I want him looking to the side, 1 arm aiming and 1 in a more neutral position? Thoughts on this would be appreciated

 

3rd conversion for the day is the VIGILATOR

 

I really like the moritat models spec ops vibe, so decided to make him a vigilator. again load-out and posing is where I am struggling.

 

Do I go for an agressive (ish) pose with CC weapon and pistol, with boltgum strapped across his back or do I hve him carrying a specially modified bolter with other gear stowed?

 

This is where I am at for now.

36162585492_4bb49dff31_c.jpg20170802_114005 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

Something less archeoech like plasma or volkite

 

35925199740_84808bed91_c.jpg20170801_230154 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

or a wulfen claw?

 

Or a bit more stealthy and arrying something like this which I knocked up a year or so ago, which would bring him kind of in-line with the recon marines....

36321024775_6d6f8a2fed_c.jpg20170801_230139 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Thoughts on this would be very much appreciated

A little bit more of an update on Hvarl

 

35986477470_bc72fc9eb9_c.jpg20170805_114936 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Found a resin grenade harness kicking abut so attached it to Hvarl.

 

35986475810_a8a9bd177b_c.jpg20170805_114931 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

 also tacked him to a base, just to see how he would look

 

35547579924_581f06a76c_c.jpg20170805_114357 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Plus I shortened out the gun barrel and fitted the second small drum. Really not sure if I like it,

35986477070_a72ca9c4be_c.jpg20170805_114910 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Also tried the arm out, seems a it skinny especially up top. Will try to smooth the gun to the fist, but otherwise I am wondering if I should get rid of it and use a cut down autocannon from the BoP set. What d you think? I like the fact that the HB is small enough that he could theoretically use both hands to wield his axe, but.... Well let me know what you think about it.

 

I also worked on a Master of Signals.

 

I thought abut the Seer from Vikings as a Caser of Runs, due to his role in the show, however I decided that as the Seer was for want of a better word, not combat worthy, I figured  a better role for the Seer would be as a MoS he could still see al and know all, just not in the mystical sense. Help to guide the Rout and call down the wrath of the old gods :D

 

 35986477770_f07897e53d_c.jpg20170805_113158 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

35986476850_413cd52a53_c.jpg20170805_113205 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Still needs finished up, considering giving him a raven and a staff or maybe just stick to the pointing arm from the MoS. Cloak and head are from Cypher and is giving a pretty distinctive outline, which I will need to change a we bit. Maybe add the MoS head and make a home made hood?

35986476160_984e367e65_c.jpg20170805_113949 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Havent decided if he will be a 13th Company rune priest or wolf priest yet. Do you like the spear? Using Kharns arm with molocs spear nd a custodes lance for the tip. Could call it a staff or some such if a caster of runes, or swittch to a crozius, maul or ax if I go with wolf priest.

 

I plan to make him look a little more "feral" by adding a wolf head and some more pelts

 

Thoughts?

Going to work on his base soon

 

Looking to put a corpse under his foot

 

This guy

 

35557003044_a6349429f9_c.jpg20170805_213056 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

Or this guy

35557002474_3202f06e26_c.jpg20170805_213038 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Now the mark 2 corpse is from the Khârn model, speaking of which:

Am thinking a member of the deathsworn??

 

Also tried to make the MoS a bit less Cypher looking. Thought a psyber raven might be a good idea

36392547285_b65feda158_c.jpg20170805_212937 by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

Not sure if it is too cartoony. Could always use the original MoS head

 

Also tried a different weapon load out on the vigilator

Finally a new priest joins the pack

I think I prefer the spear, and possibly without the second amo drum (a bit too bulky otherwise). Also, I think the Vigilator deserves a longer barrel (possibly with a small sculpture of a running wolf at the muzzle end ?)

 

Looking really good :)

Took your advice on the vigilator rifle.

 

Changed the priest slightly too and had a try with twin drums n Hvarl, but suspect you may be right, he is starting to look very top heavy, see below.

 

Anyways was tinkering last night

Hvarl is slowly getting there. I think he is starting to look a little top heavy and not sure about the twin drums on his HB. Really need some guidance on where to go wit this one. Enthusiasm is cooling off.

Was originally going to go with caster of Runes, but thinking Speaker of the dead. Dropped the spear and will o with crozius or axe... Thoughts?? Needs a pelt or 2 mat swap head for Ulriks or even try to do a chop job and apply the helm of Russ. Need ideas for left arm!!

4 Varagyr fleshed out have an idea for the 4th but run out of claws...

Thegn/ Praetor to lead Varagyr. Always loved the imagery of the Varagyr swathed in pelts and carrying great harpoon/spears. So decided to pinch this from the Priest. Kept him similarly armed to the Varagyr, but may strap a combi-weapon to his side for versatility.. Thoughts?

Thegn for the tartaros. Do I ditche the banner idea and leave the pose so he is eting readyto smash someone or keep him as a bnner bearer so he could be a commad squad member. He has Polux's combi melta, but the banner stops me giving hi a chain fist (could change to claw though).

Tartaros squad are plasma blaster and chainfist + 3x combi-melta and chainFist or 3x combi plasma and chain fist

What do you think?

Folks said gun for the vigilator, just deciding if I want old-school scout pack or heavy loaded with a recon pack.

 

What do you reckon?

For Hvarl Red-Blade, my suggestion (and hopefully my plan) is to use the MkIV heavy bolter, hand & all, on a right-hand Tartaros arm. You could position it any way you like then, depending on how you want his pose. They all use their ranged weapons right-handed anyway, so it should work. :)

However, I think you've done a great job with Polux making it look more like Tartaros armour! I personally would have started with a Tartaros model (as Polux is in MkIII, which is similar to Cataphractii). Nice work!

Hi Caillum.

The mark 4 heavy bolter had been my first choice too, but I had the idea that his axe could be used 2-handed when required.

By using a traditional HB it would make that impossible.

I also wished I had started with a Tartaros termi sometimes too, but the Polux idea had been rattling around for such a long time.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with :)

Darn... So FW announced Hvarl WILL get a character series model.

Do I plough on with mine?

Short answer is yes, but with a view to transition him to a Praetor when the real thing lands.

Oh and the preview of the Varagyr.... What an abomination, so glad I started making my own. Hopethe others are way better than that piece of garbage.

I hate the front doors on the Mastodon, plus my hack job to get them to shut looks awful.

 

So maybe put a Mastodon door shaped plate over the front, leaving slots for the melta. I could leave it as a thin plate, so the frag launchers could fire throug it raining death on the enemy, or I could make it and fill the gaps so it is a huge solid door.

 

Maybe make it look like the doors to Valhalla in Vikings or something similar like an image of Yggdrasill?

So more thoughts are springing up in my head today

 

This was the Fire Raptor I did about 2 years ago:

23726534950_a18e8e8386_c.jpg30K Space Wolves Fire Raptor, designation Night Fury by Danny Taylor, on Flickr

 

Now FW have gone for a very different aesthetic for fliers which is a bit more "austere" ad =it is down mainly to the Wolves not liking fliers so much.

 

 

 

I have a Fire Raptor, Lightning and Storm Eagle to paint up, so do I stick with te bolder style of knot work design, or bring it more in line with FW's vision?

 

Genuinely conflicted over this.

Darn... So FW announced Hvarl WILL get a character series model.

Do I plough on with mine?

 

Yes. An issue I think a lot of people have with character models is that we get an idea of what it should look like in our heads, either through existing art or how we interpret their description in fluff or novels, and are often disappointed when the official model is revealed and doesn't live up to what he hoped it would be. 

 

The good thing about making your own is that you can make it look something like what you envision and the better your kitbashing and conversion skills are, the closer you can get it to that mental image. I've seen a lot custom character models made by folks that they prized over the official ones for this very reason. 

 

I hate the front doors on the Mastodon, plus my hack job to get them to shut looks awful.

 

So maybe put a Mastodon door shaped plate over the front, leaving slots for the melta. I could leave it as a thin plate, so the frag launchers could fire throug it raining death on the enemy, or I could make it and fill the gaps so it is a huge solid door.

 

Maybe make it look like the doors to Valhalla in Vikings or something similar like an image of Yggdrasill?

 

Yeah, those doors could use some help. If it were me, I'd sand the front of them flat and cut new sheet plastic to match the interlocking pattern. Instead of Yggdrasil, maybe something more intimidating for the enemies to see like Jörmungandr?

 

So more thoughts are springing up in my head today

 

This was the Fire Raptor I did about 2 years ago:

 

Now FW have gone for a very different aesthetic for fliers , so do I stick with te bolder style of knot work design, or bring it more in line with FW's vision?

 

Anything that makes a model stand out enough that people can immediately identify it as yours is something you should definitely keep doing.

Space Wolves are badasses that operate just barely within the rules. 13th Co. didn't even know there were rules applying to how badass they could be. DepthCharge on the Space Wolves

 

I'm so pleased that GW have gone to such great lengths to produce these awesome Space Wolves basing kits. Wraithwing on the Thousand Sons Rubic Marine release

 

"The Fell Hand is a name that has been passed on through out the Legion. When one warrior bearing it died, the name is left to be earned by another. Thus it was passed from Floki to Volund to Erik to Geigor. And then the tradition died, because censored.gif  Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 censored.gif millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

Thank you for the encouragement BCK, And you too Kjaran.

 

I will keep working on Hvarl.

To try and bulk out the legs, I might replace the ridged mark 3 armour and smooth it out to look more like terminator armour and If I can find a way of flattenining out the dwarf pads, maybe use them on the knees.

 

As for the Mastodon, I did make a dogs dinner of the front-end as I rushed to get it done. I made a lot of mistakes with it as I didn't think through where a lot of the issues were. I will think through trimming the doors flat, as I had originally thought to use the ridges on the door to hold the plates in place.

 

Yggdrasil is out, as it is the tree of life, but I had been envisioning something along the lines of this:

I quite like the idea of these being the doors to Valhalla, which would release the warriors to make war on their foes.
 
If going for something more aggressive, what about this?

However I have wanted to run something like this up the front side to look like a long ship

However I could do the dragon head on both sides of the door facing each other so they made a "prow" with the doors open?
 
As for the Fire Raptor, I really like FW's gritty look. I will stick with the knot work, but maybe dial the gold back and give it more of an edge.
 
Thanks

I'm sure whatever you choose to do on the assault doors will look great, and to make it look as professional as possible you might see about having a design laser engraved into the plastic.

What if you go with a design that's more stylized like this one that you posted (but not this one specifically):

And paint it in a slighter darker tone than the base color, like a two-tone camouflage that keeps the "tactical" aspect of the markings but allows you to put some personality into the paint job.

In the grim darkness of the far future, hope is the first step to despair.

Lol, about 2 years ago, that was the exact idea Flint and I had for the Storm Eagle.

 

The gleaming gold of the Fire Raptor descending from the heavens like a falling star, drawing the ire of the foe while the Storm Eagle flies in unmolested to deliver its vicious cargo of killers. The Eagle darkly adorned to avoid catching the eyes of the enemy would then rise to join her sisters in bringing death against the hapless prey.

 

We also dreamt up the crazy idea to merge a fire Raptor back end with a Storm Eagle front end, so we had a long thin hatch at the back for marines to jump out and some cool round hatches to shoot or rappel from. I am not rich enough to try pulling that project off :D

 

For this I would consider, maybe switching out the rune for a SW legion symbol and using it on the front body. Either that or go with running it across the top before the wings then use a knotwork wing design either down the wings or on the fins, like the previous fire Raptor

 

What do you think?
