Good job on Einar.

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.

Thank you, the Reiver helmet wasn't my idea, because I bought him already assembled second hand. He was originally a Salamander, but I convinced him to change teams ๐Ÿ˜€

To be fair, that's the most use most people will get out of Reivers anyways :lol:

The model looks good though!

Yeah, the helmet is super popular, everyone seems to use it in conversions ๐Ÿ˜…. I actually try not to over-use it for that reason. Anyway, one in a squad doesn't hurt...

I love the grey, i love the gritty, dirty battlefield look to these guys.

However my favorite must be the arrogant looking "come at me heretic" open arms dude. I would definitely use him as a company champion. Only a guy who's won every, single-combat he's entered can strut across the battlefield like that.

Hehe, thanks a lot! I'll use him as a judiciar rules wise, but he can be a champion in fluff โ˜บ. No idea how judiciars are officially integrated in Space Wolf lore anyway...

Since he is obviously an ex-Deathwatch member (elbow piece), you could write some fluff about him.

I like that skull-headed chap (and the bit itself), but I am wondering why on the wings on his pauldron? Honor piece from a battle brother from one of the Angel Chapters that he fought alongside? Are those legs third-party bits on him as well - they look like a cool bionic armored limb for the forward leg?

I think the skull helm on the Intercessor is neat - more ideas to consider, or if I just keep them a marker of the Reivers. It gives him the "Angel of Death" Aspect, IMO. Can't say I'm quite as taken by the hooded guy - did someone let a Dark Angel/DA-kin sneak in and lift some Wolf armor? :lol:

Are the gun cases going to stay grey? They just don't stand out quite as much as the black casings on the weapons you had been doing were.

Keep it up - I can't ever fault someone that is making it through more models than me - more painted always looks better, and I like what you are doing with your guys! The chipping you have, whether the little heavier or the lighter stuff on Mr. skull, both look good - not sure if there's a happy medium for you, or if you even need it - different soldiers are going to have different levels of contact with the enemy.

So... one thing I forgot (/was to lazy) to mention is that the models are all built with Kill Team in mind. That's why they're supposed to look somewhat eccentric... kind of like a Space Wolves A-Team, where every one is a distinct character biggrin.png

Hehe, I think he already looked cartoony  with the skull  helmet before and the winged shoulder pad just added to his campy look. The legs are from Kromlech, and I thought the crouching pose fitted the "on a secret mission"-vibe.

Can't say I'm quite as taken by the hooded guy - did someone let a Dark Angel/DA-kin sneak in and lift some Wolf armor? laugh.png


Yes, the hooded guy is supposed to be the weird, introvert guy of the Kill Team... he has his own style, even if his brothers don't like it tongue.png
 

 

Are the gun cases going to stay grey? They just don't stand out quite as much as the black casings on the weapons you had been doing were.


Yes, the gun cases will stay that way. They're actually a different grey from the armour... which isn't too apparent from the pictures, unfortunately. I think I want the guns to look more utilitarian, and not too flashy smile.png

...Maybe I'll come up with some mini fluff for the Kill Team members tommorrow.

I (...well almost) finished another guy...

...I accidently discovered that the organic solvent I used for making oil washes is a very potent paint purger. So part of the paint job on one foot was gone. My solution was to cover my mistake in blood (a classic Imperial approach, I guess)๐Ÿ˜“.

Yeees ๐Ÿ˜‚, you got me. I want them to look utilitarian... but I can't do Space Wolves without gold either. I can't go all reasonable marines with Space Wolves.

See, It's like this: I only issue them guns in subtle brownish grey, but if they want to bling them out, it's their decision. Enforcing too strict rules is bad for battlefield morale with Space Wolves.

So... I recently made my infiltrators tabletop ready. I wanted a darker, camouflage scheme for them, while keeping to some shade of grey. Settled on AK interactive German Grey as a base colour, then layered stripes of burnt umber, warm grey and black. Let me know what you think.

...edited for typos...

Ranulf, I really like that dark camo pattern for the Infiltrators!  Very nice work.

 

I will say I think the blonde guyโ€™s hair needs a bit more definition, but that may just be some judicious placement of sepia needed, or it could simply be washed out by the photo.

 

I know you are trying to keep the weapons minimalist, but I think that the weapon bodies are a little too light given the dark camo armor pattern.  Maybe shade them down some?

 

The gent motioning with the three fingers and the bloody boot is great, and I feel you on needing to cover up some splatter - good show, it just looks like heโ€™s curb-stomped some poor deserving heretic right through the back of the cranium.  I really like those legs too!

Thanks for the thoughtful comment. Right now I'm kind of in a "getting models done" mode, so I'll probably leave theme like this... or will I? Hmmm.... ๐Ÿ˜“

Wulf, the smoke Grenades are in the โ€œStart Collecting - Vamguard Marinesโ€ kit for those Infiltrators, and the only other one Iโ€™m aware of is in the Phobos/Reiver Primaris Lieutenant kit.
