Warning, giant pic dump incoming!

 

So, I have been cranking on getting these boys assembled in anticipation of a FW order my friend placed coming in soon. I wanted to have a force sorted that I could goof around with. There is probably a tactical squad and a Contempter waiting in the wings for them as well so I can shuffle things around. There is one final model coming for the force, a VI Legio Moritat, I'm pretty geeked out to sort that one, have a few ideas that I think should shake out well.

 

Also I am not a smart human. I realized after assembling them that there are in fact TWO shoulder plates on the Cataphracti... So, yeah, need to fix the rest of those tomorrow, can't be bothered right now.

 

Without further babbling, here comes The Rout!

Bitz arrived today for the Moritat, half day of work due to a field trip to see Deadpool, and I got a long weekend. Everything is coming up Stabby!!

 

Came home and cranked through the build for this guy, I knew pretty much what I wanted to do so it only took about 40 mins. I'm still debating on the head position, and he's got some greenstuff work on the left wrist and right shoulder that needs seeing to. I'm half tempted to order a bunch of loose skulls for the blank part of the base but that might make him look even more Khorne-ey than he already does.

Good dynamics. Your Moritat should be exclusively festooned with throwing axes!

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 Posted Image Bjorn got the name and proceeded to live for 10 Posted Image millenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

Hm... let's see.

 

We got a dude with two axes. We got a dude with double bolters. We got volkite *pew pew* weapons.

They are all members of one of my favorite legions.

Wow. Every model in this thread looks like he benches over 500.

 

I love Deathwalker, he's easily my favourite model here (and the rest are brilliant).

 

BUT. This is purely subjective, but I think you've got the wrong head on that model. I'd prefer to see a more imposing helm (the faux-Viking horns don't do it for me) or a really menacing bare head. Something that screams more 'murder incarnate' and less 'barbarian'. Totally just my subjective opinion, so if you're happy with it as-is, disregard. I also like the second head position best.

 

Great stuff :)

Cheers for all the comments folks! I appreciate it.

 

@Bulbafist Steal away!

 

@Jud Cottrell Cheers, yeah, I've found over the years that subtle positioning of torsos and such can give a good sense of impending violence that any proper Astarte ought to have imo.

 

 

@ Arkhan & Cthonia It's funny how divisive the helmet is. I have wanted to use that helmet for a Space Wolf for years, so it likely won't change unless something just hits me when I see it, this guy and the rest of the force he's attached to won't see paint for quite awhile so it may happen. It's weird that it says Iron Warrior to people. I mean I know it's from the old IW upgrade kit, but it has always felt out of place there to me. With as tropey as GW is with the Wolves I really feel like it should have been ours all along. (yes, I know vikings didn't actually have horned helms).

 

I was looking at the model today and now I'm considering attempting to gs the bronze support bits around the eye slot that viking helms did have, that might pull it closer towards proper vikingness. Something like this.

I painted a test Veteran. Pretty happy with how he's come out. The pack marking is picking up a ton of glare, it's much cleaner in RL, still a giant pain though, I'm going to need to sort a better way to do those going forward. Also need to make a decision on what to do with the bases. The group is nominally for Blood int he Void games, but I don't know if I want to stick with deck plating bases. Decisions decisions...

Nice colour scheme, is that a smattering of Anvil bits I see in these squads?

Yep, mostly GW/FW with some Anvil and Mastercrafted bitz here and there, and the great company pad is from Shapeways.

Ok, so, not a Wolf, but it is Heresy flavored so I figured I'd put him in here. Also, how do I change the title of the thread?

 

Anyhow...

 

I was reading Book 6 and I decided that Endryd Haar was going to need a Herald to accompany him on his joyous mission of punching traitors right in the junk.

 

To that end I present:

 

Kerim Shah, Traitor's Ruin, Herald of the XIIth

Wow, there's some seriously excellent Wolves in here! Particularly a fan of your Axeman with the 40k Iron Warriors head [have also had success achieving a 'Germanic' look with some of the 30k Iron Warriors heads myself]

If I might ask, where's the long flowy banner on your Vexilla from? And, for that matter, the axe? 


Vox Stellarum efforts:
The Unyielding Adamanticores [truescale Astartes, auxilia, and sectorial AdMech; M37/38]
The Haunting Harii of Hvergelmir [truescale Astartes ... and associates] 
The Unification Wars [truescale Thunder Warriors, (Proto-)Astartes, Army of Unification, Aegyptian-style Proto-Mechanicus raiders, etc.] 
Combat Archaeology [Tomb Raiding for Fun & Prophet] 
Horus Heresy [truescale loyalist IVth, VIIIth; Agents of the Sigillite; VIth; and so much more; and Umbral's amazing Traitors] 
The Worlds-Wide Webway [(Dark) Eldar, Imperial Inquisition, an a-maze-ing realmweave of fear and wondermeant]
Thorian Inquisition [some rather different Inquisitorial Storm Troopers, true-scale Fire Hawks, Black Dragon, Inquisitor and associates, etc.] 
For Whom The Great Bell Tolls Thrice [attempts to put the 'priest' back in 'tech-priest' with more-medieval mechanicus] 
InquisiNecronMunda [the log that incepted it all - at least two Inquisitors, truescale Deathwatch, local enforcers, cultists, etc.]

The banner is from the witch elf blood cavalry... things. I forget the correct name. Axe, shoulder plates and bionic arm are all Anvil Industry.

Your Wolves are looking great, I agree with Arkhan about the Moritats helm, but overall amazing work :)

 

I tried doing the helms as you said with gs, but failed dismally so used paint to pretty decent effect, liquid GS might be good for it though
