I definitely know the pain of attempting to make .. curious stances on legs work with a truescale - admittedly due to using various grave wardens, tartaroi, cataphractii legs the old fashioned way 

but I reckon he's come out pretty excellent! Well done ! 


Vox Stellarum efforts:
The Unyielding Adamanticores [truescale Astartes, auxilia, and sectorial AdMech; M37/38]
The Haunting Harii of Hvergelmir [truescale Astartes ... and associates]
The Unification Wars [truescale Thunder Warriors, (Proto-)Astartes, Army of Unification, Aegyptian-style Proto-Mechanicus raiders, etc.]
Combat Archaeology [Tomb Raiding for Fun & Prophet]
Horus Heresy [truescale loyalist IVth, VIIIth; Agents of the Sigillite; VIth; and so much more; and Umbral's amazing Traitors]
The Worlds-Wide Webway [(Dark) Eldar, Imperial Inquisition, an a-maze-ing realmweave of fear and wondermeant]
Thorian Inquisition [some rather different Inquisitorial Storm Troopers, true-scale Fire Hawks, Black Dragon, Inquisitor and associates, etc.]
For Whom The Great Bell Tolls Thrice [attempts to put the 'priest' back in 'tech-priest' with more-medieval mechanicus]
InquisiNecronMunda [the log that incepted it all - at least two Inquisitors, truescale Deathwatch, local enforcers, cultists, etc.]

Yes it's definitely something that I'm looking to improve on. I always lean towards more static, stoic poses and outright avoid the typical marine holding bolter. For my own sanity I think I'll have to just go for the more typical poses as it isn't feasible to extensively convert each mini whilst maintaining momentum and interest in a project.

Quick update on the Space Wolves 30k Kill Team as I've been working on a Fenrisian Wolf companion for my Huscarl. Ever since the release of Rippa's Snarlfangs for Beastgrave I knew I wanted to convert up one of the wolf mounts to count as a Fenrisian Wolf, as it just looks a lot more ferocious than the official 40k sculpts.

 

Cutting off the goblin rider was easy enough, the challenge followed as I had to resculpt certain patches of fur and the entirety of the leather patch on his back. These pictures I've added a filter to so as to see whether the green stuff work blends in at all. I'm quite happy with my efforts; you can still spot where I've been sculpting but overall I think it will look fine once I've added a lick of paint.

Looking nice! Great idea on using the Snarlfang.

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?

Quick update on the Wolf. He is now painted and becomes the 2nd member of the SW Kill Team. I'm very happy with how he turned out - I followed the Warhammer TV tutorial which is mostly drybrushing. I was apprehensive at first but think am glad I gave it a go now. A quick and easy paintjob and a nice palette cleanser from power armour. Next up is the next MKII Space Wolf.

I've also got some MKII from Tortuga Bay Studios on the way and am toying with a future Sons of Horus Reaver Kill Team once I've got the Space Wolves done and dusted
