Hi Folks, 

 

I'm back again with another painting log. 

 

After swearing to not add any Primaris to my Space Wolves army (not because I don't like them, but more because I don't like the mismatch in size), I find myself starting a new Primaris Space Wolves project. 

 

The plan is to start a new army, and try and keep it all Primaris, with the exception of Ragnar Blackmane himself, and some Wulfen (OK, and maybe a Stormwolf...). Having resisted doing a Blackmanes force for years, as they are quite common, I decided to make it easy on myself and use all the cool Blackmanes transfer and shoulder pads.

 

As a start, I've converted up a Primaris Ragnar Blackmane. Everyone has been talking about how Ragnar is a prime candidate for 'Primarisation' due to his young age, and I wholeheartedly agree. Here's where I've got so far:

Obviously, there's still quite a bit of green stuff work to do, and I want to add his distinctive Wolfs Head shoulder pad also. I will likely be using the top half of a dreadnought smoke launcher to do this. I'll also be adding some more bling to his torso, likely in the form of the chains and badges from the Wulfen kit. I also need to decide on how to base him. I'm tempted to build a base up for him from cork. 

 

I've also gone ahead and put together my first 5 man Intercessor Pack:

I've gone with standard Bolt Rifles for these guys. Also tried to keep the wolfy wolfness to a minimum on these guys, as I think Mark X just looks stunning painted up in a clean Wolves scheme. Here's a few close ups of the Pack Leader:

Initially I thought the Primaris kit was quite static, but I'm really pleased with the dynamism you can achieve with the right posing. 

 

As far as the army goes, I have another 5 Intercessors, 5 Reivers, a Redemptor Dreadnought, 3 Aggressors and enough spares to make a couple of packs of TH/SS Primaris Wulfen (using the monopose bodies). 

 

I'm also toying with the idea of doing some 'Primaris' Blood Claws to accompany Ragnar and fit in with the theme of the army. 

 

As always, C&C is appreciated!

 

Cheers, 

WW

I like the dynamic poses.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Wraithwing,

 

For a moment there I thought someone had taken photos of the DIY work sitting on my hobby table. Seriously, I've got miniatures blue-tac'ed together at the moment that are almost exactly the same bits/poses. It's scary.

 

If you've also got a Redemptor covered with Bjorn bits hiding there as well then we may be linked telepathically. ;)

 

Good luck with the painting, i'll be watching with interest. smile.png

Great Blackmane Wraithwing. Really like the Wolf Pelts partiucularly, they add so much movement to the model. Lovely running pose, good stuff. Excellent choice of top knot too.

 

I'm looking forward to your progress.

Stunning! I love seeing folks Primaris kitbashes - it reminds me of the days before 5th edition when there was very few Space Wolves bits and we all had to bash using codex kits.

(except now of course there are lots of wolf kits to combine these guys with)

Bit more done on Primaris Ragnar tonight. Mainly the green stuff, but also found him a nice chunk of ice to leap off!

I've got some filthy xenos vying for my attention at the moment, but I've keen to keep the ball rolling with this project. 

 

Let me know what you think.

Not a massive amount of progress has happened on this project, but I did get round to priming Primaris Ragnar in The Fang, and I think it has really brought him together. Will make a start on painting him in earnest very soon:

I hope the design team at GW are seeing this, because this is how you update Ragnar right. 

Looking forward to more brother

Lo, there do I see my fallen kinsmen, Threads cut by the foe I now seek. In bloody battle I will engage him, And carve my vengeance from his flesh. No ale shall pass my lips, At no feast will I indulge. No foe shall stay my wrath, Until my brothers are avenged. Ever shall I hunt my quarry, Across the Sea of Stars. Whilst I yet breathe, I will not falter, Until Morkai claims his due.--Bjorn's Oath of the Lone Wolf
