Hello brothers and shield maidens of the Fang! (Rolls out several barrels of the heartiest mjod)
 
It's been awhile since I've been able to model/paint for this hobby and after finally getting my basement in a good state. I'm hoping to use this blog to share my experiences, gain feedback, and maybe inspire others. 
 
I plan on building the list below. As you can see I've kitted together Bjorn, a Leviathan and one pack of intercessor(I may viking/wolf up the intercessors more) Next immediate tasks= another pack of autobolt rifle toting intercessors, chopping up and magnetizing heavy bolters for the storm wolf, build a pack of wulfen(need to find a way to make a better wulfen pack leader)
 

Spoiler

People might say that it hurts, that the psyche aches from the wound. It's not true though. Abandonment does not leave pain. You wished it did because that would be better than the truth. It leaves nothing. Not hope, not pain, not forgiveness."

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

Leviathans are my favorite dreads in terms of aesthetics. Imposing, brutal and uncompromising.

I like it AND the list....got that target saturation for vehicles in full effect

 

I just have one question

 

Who the heck is Alarik Silvermane? 

 

I am guessing the wolf priest?

Alarik Silvermane is a WGBL in Harald’s GC. When I joined the hobby in 2004 there was only the iconography for Haralds company. I liked it and decided to kill him off allowing him to take over the company. With Harald being revealed with a model Alarik is back to being a WGBL, however I use him as a count as WL as well. (In this case Ragnar)

Dare I? whistling.gif

So I decided to solution my storm wolf sponson guns tonight. And a thought occurred to me to make them "universal". I then tried to think of ways I could that. I saw that I had a spare thunder wolf head and wondered if I could make this work. 

 

Wolf Stylized gun emplacements which could be MM or HB depending on my list needs? Obviously I need to level the barrel, which will probably require cutting some teeth and MAYBE gs-ing them back on(my GS skills were not great, and even those paltry skills are now rusty)

Good use of thunderwolf heads. Might steal that for a land raider. :) 


Maybe you could model TWC-sized "were-templars" who's inner Templar took over in the fury of battle transforming them into a giant half man - half templar?

Been a slow week as work has been providing severe beatdowns. 

 

2nd Intercessor Pack pack leader with THammer. This was an ordeal. Couldn't find a good arm for my original plan. Had to rip off glued parts and start over. Settled on this. Thammer is in 4-5 parts.(didnt originally plan that) You will see some nasty mold lines. I got so frustrated when I mad progress i was like screw mold lines I just want to get him kitted up. I'll clean the mold lines later.

For the Stormwolf I decided to just glue on some heavy bolters. I started not liking the wolfs head plus the work involved to get it right. Same with magnets. HB's will probably be my preferred choice 90% of the time. 

 

49950662787_84efe00147_c.jpg

 

 

Next up will be building the rest of the 2nd intercessor pack then either the WP with JP or Wulfen.

I regret not magnetizing my storm wolf/fang.

I put multi meltas on because it looked cool, and now I need to cut them off because they are way to pricey points wise.

Sweet! My Haldor Icepelt bits arrived earlier than expected. I’ll be using him for my Alarik Silvermane Ragnar count as.

that clear plastic just doesn't take glue very well. Its a bit too brittle for drilling. I tried magnets then just using pins and I haven't had any luck with the heavier models like the corvus blackstar and storm raven

So I’m attempting to build the last intercessor with a box mag reload. Let’s see if I can pull this off.

Braver than I haha, I just used the normal reload and figured once he'd burn through the box mag he'd be using regular mags
