I've been playing Wolves since I first started this hobby in 1995 or so. The new Primaris models have me wanting to start a whole new Wolves army with real Marine size minis. So I picked up Dark Imperium and today converted my Wolf Lord from one of the lieutenants.

No name for him or his great company yet. I plan on using the Luna Wolf as the symbol of the company (heretical I know) and have ordered some shoulder pad symbols from Pop Goes the Monkey. Next up will probably be a squad of Grey Hunters.

That's fantastic.

 

I recognize the pelts from KFStudios (i think), but where is the shoulder pad from?


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

Wolf Guard for my Grey Hunters. I used a Primaris sergeant as the base with an arm from the other lieutenant. I converted the combi plasma from the lieutenant's gun by cutting off the top and adding a plasma top from a tactical squad combi weapon. Then some wolf bling. I'm considering adding an icon on top of the backpack, probably the crux terminatus from the terminator sprue.

Indeed it is, from the Thunderer/Quarreler set. I picked up 100 of them for Wolf conversions from a German bits site a while back.

This is awesome, cheers for posting it.

 

What are your plans for the rest of the army? Wait for more new Primaris kits and the new dreads etc to slowly be released?

 

I'm very much in the same position of wanting to do an all-Primaris size SW army, but can't decide whether to kitbash to make existing units or just embrace the Primaris thing and make a Wolfspear army.  I'm leaning towards the latter as I'm personally of the belief that GW will slowly replace the whole range.  Despite the SW models being superb like Bjorn etc, I just don't want mini-me models moving forward that I'll end up wanting to replace.

 

So wondering what your take on it is, and what your plans are?

that plasma gun actually looks proper sized now and that it can be shoulder fired...

 

Do you think the Arm/wrist mounted combi-bolters (the ones on GK) would fit on the primaris?

I imagine we'll get some nice wolfed up Primaris kits eventually. For now I'm just building regular Space Wolves out of the Primaris stuff. Once my Grey Hunters are done I'm planning on getting some of the new Reivers and using the bodies for Wolf Scouts. The arms will go on Intercessor bodies to be Blood Claws with weapon/hand swaps using existing SW close combat weapons.

Since the hands are the same size and the arms are the same thickness, if a little longer, I think they would fit fine.

Here is the next Grey Hunter.

Second plasma gunner. He got a Wolf shoulder pad and charm on his belt in addition to his Wolf plasma gun and axe. I used a devastator head with a cool targeter thing.

2 more done today. First up is the last regular bolter guy.
20170708_223945_zpsf42wznul.jpg

20170708_224018_zpsfk50ck6u.jpg
He has the axe just like the other guys, a wolf pelt on his waist, skull decoration on the gun. Used a studded helmet from the tactical squad as I think it gives it a little something above basic helmets and ties in better with the wolf themed helmets.

Also got the pack leader done.
20170708_223912_zpsoqpwoxko.jpg
He got a power sword, shoulder pad and fancy helmet. I also switched his primaris size bolter for a regular wolfed up bolter.

Next up is the standard bearer. Looking at ways to wolf up the Primaris standard but I may use a different thing altogether, not sure yet. I have also preordered 3 boxes of Reivers. I plan on using the arms with other regular Primaris bodies to make Blood Claws, and the bodies to make Wolf Scouts. Still trying to source suitable bare arms for those. The old chaos marauders might work but they might be a little short. I'll have to wait and see.

Question for everyone. I have 6 Primaris Inceptors that I'm converting for this project. Should I make them Skyclaws or Wolf Guard with jump packs? What weapon loadout would you recommend with either option?
