WG Jump packs, seeing as you are trying to get into melee ASAP I would go with combi-flamer and chainsword or frost swords with SS. 5pt for a SS that allows a huge increase in survivability is worth it imo.

 

 

I'm still trying to find those axe's, they look a lot more Space Wolf than chainswords do. 

 

The scale on the old weapons and gear seems to fit these new Primaris-sized models better than before. I wonder if you could use the old jump packs on the Primaris so you could still distinguish between Jump Packs and Intceptors, if you want to use inceptors in the future.

I joined B&C specifically to comment on this thread.  Very nice work on converting the primaris to Space Wolves.  For your wolf lord pictured in the first post, where did you get the elongated tiny wolf skull that you used on his right shin to replace the regular skull?

Thanks. The skull came from the side of the storm bolter in the wolf pack set. There are 3 of them on there. I cut them off with a hobby knife, carefully as the bottom part can be tricky. Then trim them off as individual pieces and use them as decoration in other places.

Thanks and I might borrow your idea. I just got my first two primaris yesterday in the mail and didnt realize how tiny those icons were.

My easy build Reivers finally arrived so now I have Primaris size arms to use for my Blood Claw conversions. Doing hand swaps so I'm going to use bolt pistols from the regular wolf sprue. The question I have is should I give them chainswords from the same place or use the dwarf axes as counts as chainswords like I have for my Grey Hunters?

First Blood Claw test using arms from the easy build Reivers. I cut away the combat blade and carefully drilled through the hand to insert tha axe handle. Haven't attached the pack yet as I'm using the decorated Blood Claw pad from the wolf pack. Since these guys are the fresh recruits I don't plan on using a lot of Wolf decoration on their armor. They haven't earned it yet. So what do you guys think?

I think that's fantastic.


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.gifmillenia." - Sagas of the Wolf Priests. Wispy

The Primaris Blood Claw looks promising.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Second Blood Claw built. This guy is a bit cooler than the first as he has a small collection of teeth.

Up next the WGPL for the Blood Claws. I'm thinking of giving him a combi flamer for that extra overwatch help. Good idea or should he be solely combat oriented? Open to suggestions.

And the WGPL for the Blood Claws is complete. As I was trying to figure out arm configurations I was looking for a suitable left hand and ran across the Thunder Hammer from the MKIII sprue. I liked how it looked so now this guy has a Thunder Hammer to go with his combi flamer.

That completes the Blood Claws for now. Next up is a Rune Priest.

I think you lucked out with those axes. I can't seem to find them anywhere. Models look great, still trying to figure out how you got some of the parts off the SW pack, like the tiny wolf skull off the storm bolters.

A sharp xacto blade and very careful slicing. I have ruined a few in process though. The wolf skulls on the sides of one of the bolt pistols are another good source of those bits. And I got super lucky on the axes. I did spend the better part of a year looking for them on multiple bits sites.

WIP of my Rune Priest. Waiting for some brass etch runes to be delivered from secret weapon so I can give him runic armour.

Have you thought about how to do terminators yet? I've been considering doing primaris-scale for my DW, and would definitely need a couple termies. The gravis armour is the obvious choice, but the mono-pose of the legs/torso makes it tough. Maybe assemble then slice off the legs at the crotch and place on a similarly cut termie crotch? Let me know if you've done any brainstorming
