Hello people.Where to start......oookaaay.I have had a space wolves thunderhawk sat in a box for a year now :cries:
basically as it is such a MASSIVE task all by itself i keep telling myself that i will do it last. Ie when my 'normal' army units are all done......
problem is I took six months off my army (when i was working for gw . go figure) so picked up the brush again in November not long eh ?
right i will start with a list of what i have done and then a list of what is to come.

DONE: 10 grey hunters with a wg battleleader (need to fiddle with these)

two squads of 9 claws including wolfguards for both.

7 scouts including a wolfguard.(pictures soon)

5 wolfguard bikers + runepriest (need to paint last two )
pictures of these are in the p and t forum

funky old longfang chap to be a proxy vindicare

TO DO: 9 man wolf termy squad + wolf lord ( first one started today)

1 venny dred and 1 normal dred (parts for the former land soon)

3 converted landspeeder tempests (can you say armoured
snowmobiles :evilgrin:

1 more squad of 10 greyhunters

THUNDERHAWK (weep)

6 drop pods ( need to figure out how to do these ,sooooooo
not paying 300 quid for 30pt transports )

well thems the lists !

basically doing this to give me motivation to get to the hawk....I should finish the last two wolf bikes by sunday (fingers crossed)
modelling on the termies has begun so i have some models to paint when the bikes are finished, so will give you guys some wip pics as we go..........

for the termies i have obtained a meter of green stuff strip ,a box of assault and a box of tactical termies two forgeworld conversion kits about a kilo of assorted metul bitz from mail order (actually speaking of which i am still on the shark for anuvver assault cannon :angel: ) also my bestist friend , who goes by the name el diablo on this forum is,actually a rather talented sculptor and will be doing ze modelling side of things for me............yay.

between us we can fill a small lorry with our bits boxes so we should be good to go................................

to give you some idea where i'm going with this unit modeling/wysiwyg here's the weapon fit/basic ideas.

4 wg termies with lc's(master crated) all with wolf tails,necklaces,pelts extra fur bling bling bling (oh and dont forget the charms)

2 pre heresy termies with mastercrafted dane axe (thunderhammer) and round stormshield unt nordic 'spectacle' helmets well maybe only one with the latter. + all the usuall wg bling ( see above )

3 assault cannon's 2 with chainfists one with dirtygreatbigaxe held in a powerfist (various mastercrafting here,maybe the ass cannons.....................hehehe

1 wolflord wiv lotsa stuff still cant decide what to fit him up with.....any suggestions ?

well thats the rundown, so 'ill be back' :chrome: with some photos

Sounds like a good project, I am interested to see how you paint your SW's since I went with codex grey on mine, since they shadow grey is to blueish, and SW grey is a horrid colour for mass parts like armour.

So yeah be good to see some pics, but since your on your way to that, there should be no problem eh? :)

Jormangundr
31-01-2006, 17:25
if you want to see some of my stuff there is a thread in p and t called Jormangunr's wolfguard bikes........go see

Jormangundr
31-01-2006, 17:31
well here are some various shots of our work areas, the parts for the wolfguard,a wip of one of the nators...plus some homework :D

Edit:had to remove shots as i am over my allowance ?! wtf ! so had to take some off here so i could post some new shots.

Jormangundr
31-01-2006, 18:45
also got some wip of me last two bikes

the last one was kinda inspired by lone wolves he has a devistator back pack and his hvy bolter is strapped to the back of the bike.

Jormangundr

Hi again quick update for you.....have been painting a biker the last couple o days hope to have him done by saturday lunchtime (fingers crossed) ..as i have set myself a deadline of sunday night for the completion of the squad..
might mean an all nighter saturday.:cries:

be nice :angel:

Love that wolfguard. Nice greenstuffing especially the braids in his beard. There's a big mould line running down his lightning claw which needs filing.

FearFrost
03-02-2006, 01:25
Im more a fan of the blue-ish grey SW than straight gray, but you did a great job on these, and the conversions look really hot.

Cant wait to see em finished.

Jormangundr
03-02-2006, 02:41
going to be a little while yet gonna get about 1.5 to two per week built (hopefully ) there are going to be nine...........

just for the record i loathe the cartoony blue wolves ;)

still will definitely keep this updated as we go...........should also have a piccy of the next finished rider by sat night yay!

anyway glad you like

So are you going to go pre heresy grey then...
Blue wolves are one of the reasons i didn't do them as I like the space wolves iconography (the other main reason is that they are loyalists and smashed up Prospero GRRRRR).

Oh yeah i found them Jormangundr, very nice green work.

Jormangundr
03-02-2006, 21:54
the siege of prospero is like the coolest fuff thing ever !

oh yeh and the wolves whupped ass :evilgrin:

and there'll be more of the same for the thousand sos and friends when my army is done

work started on the second wolfguard tonight :D

thunderwolf
04-02-2006, 02:54
Looks great so far, can't wait to see more! I didn't mind the blue wolves for ages, but then 13th company was released and all of a sudden there were proper grey wolves around- suddenly I realised what I'd been missing all these years. I've a load of SW stuff lying around from 4 or 5 years ago, mostly assembled in a rush and then a lack of time/motivation and intimidation by the sheer amount of unpainted stuff sitting there got to me and they've been abandoned to the cupboard ever since. If I ever get back into 40k, I hope I can make stuff much more similar to this.

Anyway, I'll be keeping an eye on you, Jormangundr, no slacking, y'hear? ;)

Jormangundr
04-02-2006, 03:15
I have sinned :cries: I was supposed to stay home and finish another biker tonight............... the urge to go and 'bang out' was too much i fear...so is now three in the morning.and as penance i shall not sleep till he is finished and maybe if cabin fever sets in Ill do the grey on his bike :eek:

my night of sin was compounded by the fact that i dragged el diablo away from his green stuff so now the next wolfguard will be delayed grrrrr :mad:

I go now to self flagelate !

cheers for the support thunderwolf glad 'someone ' has finally taken an interest, what ? are wolves not cool anymore ?

soon.

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 00:47
Well here we are horribly behind deadline.........
have finished rider number five ,so here's some pictures oof him.

also work on termy number two started today he's gonna be cool (give you some pis of the green tomorrow :D

yeesh ! just looked at the pictures....sooo out of focus. apologies,I will go and try to get some decent ones.

Edit : here's a couple of decent ones (i hope ) enjoy !

thunderwolf
05-02-2006, 01:21
No way man, wolves rock- far cooler than any other marines!

I've a horrible confession to make: for a while now (ignoring the expense of collecting a full army, which maketh my plans moot anyway:( ) I've been tempted by the bike-riding sons of the Lion, but your models have reawakened my inner Space Wolf and shown me the error of my ways! I'm tempted to have a browse on Ebay for any bargainous bits and bobs I can find...(damn you! Look what you've done! Now I REALLY have to get a job! ;))

As to the biker: looking good- like the use of the devastator backpack; the big and bulky look makes it look a bit more old fashioned and primative. Not sure about the ammo feed though- will it be connected to the bike or something? If not, it might look better removing it. Overall though, things are looking great!

One other thing, and apologies if I've missed it: are you chaps planning an army converted to this standard? I hope so, at least!

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 01:52
yes the whole army is converted to this standard hehehe

erm the devvy pack is deliberate this guy has his heavy bolter strapped to the back of his bike........suprised you dont't recognise him (guess you havn't read lone wolves) was inspired to do the bikes having read this comic.....

glad you like


edit: thunderwolf, here's the promised sneak peek of my scouts proper pictures are to follow .

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 02:07
more scouts

thunderwolf
05-02-2006, 03:07
Well, don't I feel silly!:p Didn't occur to me that he actually had a heavy bolter.
Never read lone wolves, shall have a look out for it though, if you reckon it's a good read.

The scouts look great, especially the sniper (love the modified bolter) and the glow on the other guy's plasma gun is nice too. I like the general look of your scouts, how they're converted from marauders.

Anyway, keep up the hard work!

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 03:27
lone wolves is 'the' read for anyone who likes wolves, i got the hardback ..plus the softback for regular re-reading I love it !

I will be painting the bike for him tomorrow should br finished by the evening
bleeping models tke about ten hours per single fig.then about the same again for the bike ( 120 hrs for the whole squad ) can't wait to see the back of them...........bikes that is

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 12:41
After the little sin bin excursion on friday night, the second wolfguard is nearing completion. Should have some wip pics soon-ish, and the final conversion should be finished in the next 24 hours.

El Diablo

Jormangundr
05-02-2006, 23:56
well here's number two.fresh from the butcher...... enjoy !

MIGHTYPanhead
06-02-2006, 01:44
very nice, looking forward to the whole unit!

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 02:14
on its way will be a little while yet we'll post em as we build em then as I paint them ............ just so's you don't get bored .

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 02:33
Work on wolf guard 3 should be starting in the next 24/48 hours, so we should have some more wip's soon.

thunderwolf
06-02-2006, 02:43
Very nice- like the pose especially. Looks like he's actually going to do something, as opposed to standing there with his arms spread, as so many LC poses seem to be. Green stuffing is top notch, and I like the use of the Forgeworld stuff- might have to get some eventually. Is it awkward to work with?

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 03:38
nope just dandy.a little frail perhaps,just be gentle love it !

was a bit miffed coz they were so expensive then they did the guard upgrades wich got loads of cool stuff for the same price all you get is 5 bodies and some pads with this kit no blingy wolfy weps or anything (sniff)

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 18:54
well here we are , a day late and behind schedule :mad:
still here are some shots of biker number five finished and a group shot showing where the squad is now....................... :D

the second shot (sorta ) shows the heavy bolter strapped to the back

Also does anyone else find bikes rediculously time consuming.............I can't remember anything dragging so much !

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 19:37
y know the complete lack of feedback is getting a little depressing..........

no-use4a-name
06-02-2006, 19:52
Is it possible for you to post pictures of the models that have not been shown? So far, I really like what you've done. Even if it is a Space Wolf army....looks at avatar. :p

ZAChos
06-02-2006, 21:32
I think your models are absolutely stunning. The lack of feedback is probably due to the fact that people can't be bothered to post "good stuff, get it painted" ad nausiem.

I really can't give any criticism at all, except that i truly wish it were possible to field a full army of wolf guard, just so I could see your take on it.

Jormangundr
06-02-2006, 23:42
cheers fellas was starting to get a complex :cries:

erm posted a couple of things a while back on pnt i will dig up the links and post em later.......

I have one other painted squad which needs a fiddle b4 i photo it...was my first squad for the army and the basing didn't really work out..

was thinking about doing a lysander or deathwing rules army with proxy wolfguard.....hmmm that would be an insane amount of conversion,think i'll stick to nine for now. the bikes are either wg bikers or i use them as bloodclaw bikers and/or stormclaw bikers............

soon as I have done the bikes i'm onto a venny dred and a 'normal' dred (I shall spanketh the greenstuff)

thunderwolf
07-02-2006, 02:08
Looks good man, especially seeing the whole squad together. Saving these pics for inspiration- maybe after graduation I'll be able to afford to get back into 40k...

Can't wait to see what you can do with a venerable dread; are you basing it off the forgeworld dread or the regular one?

Oh, and it seems to be generally quiet in here; don't think it's anything personal!

Jormangundr
07-02-2006, 03:35
oh the dred is a suprise guess you will have to wait and see ;)

cant find the links for my old pics i'll do it later. got some shots of my grey hunters who still need some fixy fixy. but here ya go

work on the third termy has begun ( he has a very special assault cannon ) :evilgrin:

Jormangundr
07-02-2006, 03:36
and more !

Btw : satin varnish is EVIL ! and made these models look poopy (sulk) still got to change the pad rims to metal then i think they will be ready.

MIGHTYPanhead
07-02-2006, 04:39
The lack of feedback is probably due to the fact that people can't be bothered to post "good stuff, get it painted" .

over and over;) which is true, a thread with some well thought out responses is better than a 15-page monster filled with "good job, keep at it!:)" from the same 10 people ;)

that said, I really like the satin varnish, the models don't look very "poopy" to me...

also, do they have metal greaves/armour? if so, very cool stuff. if not, i'm slowly going blind.... :eek:

FearFrost
07-02-2006, 06:00
I think everything you have done so far is pretty damned good.

I especially love your wolf scout conversions, I think those are probably my favorites.

Id love to see a group shot if you could get the models together with a decent camera :)

-Brian

Jormangundr
07-02-2006, 06:03
no these were the first of my wolves...subsequently have switched to using metal plates in certain places..looks much better ( its part of the fixing process they are going to get also need to swap the combi melta for an lc cos its a rubbish combo.

will be doing a second squad of scouts at some point you will be happy to hear

Jormangundr
08-02-2006, 02:46
ok new stuff :D got sick of the bikers ..so i took a small break to sort out the grey hunters all pimped now complete with source lit plas pistols and a custom right handed power armour lightning claw.

wip of wolfguard number 3 (enjoy) I love him to bits !

Don't worry i havn't completely abandoned the last biker ,I spent a few hours painting him grey today so by the end of tomorrow he should be done ! then i'll start on his bike .

FearFrost
08-02-2006, 03:12
Damn, man. Thats pretty sweet.

Jormangundr
08-02-2006, 03:17
cheers pal appreciate the input ......... I am positively foaming at the mouth to paint him he still needs to be finished.final pics of him tomorrow !

thunderwolf
09-02-2006, 02:44
Hey again, looking good so far, can't wait to see these termies painted up! Love the pose on the assault cannon guy, and as usual the greenstuffing is tanfastic!

El-Diablo
09-02-2006, 03:20
Howdy Thunderwolf, cheers for the feedback. The green stuffing is probably the easiest part of the figures to do, the real pain in the ass is getting Jormangundr to decide on what he wants done to them!

Due to me needing a couple of days off from the wolf sculpting, the next wolf guard wont be started until saturday. He's gonna be another assault cannon based on a piece of art which im gonna let you wait and see to guess the art.

Final conversion pics should be up within an hour of me writing this post, and wip's of the next one should be up sunday or monday.

El Diablo:skull:

Jormangundr
09-02-2006, 03:43
ok finally.no biker as promised got sucked into 'pimping' my pack leader for my grey hunters.......done a custom set of claws for him.........whaadya think ??

also final greens of wg'd numero three............. :D

Jormangundr
09-02-2006, 03:44
and the termy

Jansen
09-02-2006, 07:48
Nice!

What are those claws made out? Plasticcard?

Jormangundr
09-02-2006, 14:34
erm no I was too lazy to completely start from scratch with these as it was just sposed to be a quick fix.... if you look further back in the thread the same guy has a combi bolter.....anyway i used six marine knives and carved them to shape, the left claw is a space wolves powerfist with most of the fingers cut off, leaving about a mil (don't cut off the thumb or little finger )
then pin and ply the claws in. second fist is just cortez's right arm including shoulderpad razorsawed off .I cut all the fingers off, then carefully removed the pinky and thumb from another sw powerfist and glued them onto the fist ,then just had to pin and greenstuff the claws in.......

thunderwolf
09-02-2006, 15:55
Nice work on the claws, much better than the combi-bolter! The wolf guard is looking good- can just picture him letting rip on a charging horde of orks!

El Diablo, it's not the termie from the codex getting mobbed by the nids? Regardless, looking forward to seeing it!

Jormangundr
09-02-2006, 17:35
basicly the 'mystery wolf' is gonna have some licence used so don't just think guys with assault cannons maybe he has a storm bolter in the picture ? ..............maybe

here's a subtle hint for ya ! (see picture )

yuk! satin varnish and poop camera = not very flattering picture of a nice model grrrr!

village idiot
09-02-2006, 20:14
could this army be any cooler? I love all these conversions, really makes this army one of a kind.

Jormangundr
09-02-2006, 20:46
seriously cheers, It's just fantastic to get such a great response...a real mojo booster, after days of having very few people comment,it is a real pleasure
just makes me wanna pick up my brush right now...............s*d it i will !

Jormangundr
10-02-2006, 01:49
well i'm back from throwing paint at models and finally the fith wolfguard rider is dun !

here you go !

again apologies for the rubbish pictures but at some point i'll get some decent ones done and post em
can't afford my own digi cam at the moment (do you know how expensive this army is !!

DV8
10-02-2006, 04:16
While I am not a fan of the stark highlights, I must say the consistency with which you've carried out the technique across the entire army is stunning. I love your conversions, and how you've painted the yellows and the flesh tones is absolutely gorgeous. Yet again more proof that Space Wolves are the best chapter around! :D Can't wait to start on my Wolfwing now...

Keep it up!

Gorgeous as usual; gotta see about getting me a box of marauders from ebay...

Jormangundr
10-02-2006, 14:25
cheers fellas.......... I dont normally go for such harsh highlights.....just something i was playing aroud with on the wolves ......... I decided that i liked it as i feel it adds to the feral character of the models !
glad you like

random question Which is your favorite scout ? ( we ask everyone this and no-one seems to be able to agree on the same one ) so I thought i'd ask you lot....just for a giggle !

Final edit : Yes join me brothers ! for Russ! for the wolftime ! ( howls )

Jormangundr
10-02-2006, 15:04
yeh ! he's a repeat offender I think my fave has to be the guy with the knives ;)

thunderwolf
10-02-2006, 15:37
Hmm, probably a toss up between the sniper and the plasma guy, but it's really rather hard to choose between them all!

Jormangundr
10-02-2006, 15:46
which plasma guy ? the sgt or the long haired one ?

while i'm here some piccies i forgot to add the other day !

tried these shots in daylight to see if they come out any better (fingers crossed )

How do you doi the furs and beards using greenstuff??
Please tell us:)

The beards and hair are just a sharp knife and patience. I'll do a walk through on each if anyone's interested?

I agree to Tim. :)

Jormangundr
10-02-2006, 20:38
we will do a walk thru as we do wg number 4 so that should be starting tomorrow night.......

currently facing motivational issues with the last bike guess i'll have to go pick up me brush soon (sigh )

thunderwolf
11-02-2006, 04:32
Well I did mean this one (http://www.warseer.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=5480&d=1139105213), but it's quite possibly been overshadowed by the guy with the bow- great, original idea, and fantastic execution. Would love to see the walk-through as well, though it'll no doubt be a good while before I get any use out of it.

Anyway, keep up the good work; I await the next pictures with bated breath!

Jormangundr
11-02-2006, 06:03
hav been bad and willfull today (I only sprayed the last bike ) slap on wrist
should have something done by the end of tomorrow

Jorman and Diablo,
You guys are just what the dr. ordered. I have a Wolf army and got it when I was at GW and put it away until I got over the GW experience, but I am going to pull it out and start on it. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the great work!!!

VtrAxx
11-02-2006, 07:03
I second on thunderwolf's request for a tutorial on the the guy with the bow, a walk-through on building on would be GREAT!

Awesome stuff, I'll have to follow on this log more often now. ^_^

Vtraxx Out

Jormangundr
11-02-2006, 15:43
Ah I am just thankfull we have stopped your wolves going wasted, unloved and abandoned in your cupboard.

sadly we dont have the parts to do a walkthrough on the guy with a bow,so we are going to walkthrough the next wolfguard !

as for the guy with a bow i will try to sort out a document or something that we can e-mail people who wanna have a go at building it.

Jormangundr
13-02-2006, 02:24
Finally finished the last bike today ! you have no idea how good it feels knowing i will never have to paint a bike again..............

SQUAD FINISHED ! :D

so here's some piccies.

wolfguard number 4 is well underway and we have quite a few walkthrough pictures for you guys .thes shold be up tomorrow or more likely the day after.

enjoy !

13-02-2006, 02:26
There out of this world mate ,what you painting next ?

Jormangundr
13-02-2006, 02:51
Thankee

next up is three blood claws to turn my 15 man squad into two 9 man sqads

gotta do all the flipping basing (uh!)

i will then be converting another squad of grey hunters while el diablo cracks on with the wolfguard.

so after the bloodclaws i will get on with painting the termies. (depends if i take a quick break to sort out my mordheim warband....hmmmm decisions decisions.

village idiot
13-02-2006, 12:02
Those look absolutely incredible, I've said it before and i'll say it again, this army is amazing! particularly like the guy in the middle with the flowing hair, his pose is really cool.

Well done mate, keep up the hard work.

thunderwolf
13-02-2006, 12:36
Looking good man, great to see the squad together. Keep up the hard work- excited at the thought of all the kick-ass wolves coming up!

Jormangundr
14-02-2006, 00:39
Well as promised wg'd number 4 is pretty much finished ( bar some minor detailing ) will put the finished green up tomorrow night.

I started on a wolfguard sgt today ,may have pic's up later
the promised walkthrough is kinda in the works so maybe we will have that up soon ,need more pictures as we kept forgetting to take them do'h !

anyways hope you like him ,maybe you will even be able to work out which piece of art inspired him !......maybe :angel:

deus ex mortis
14-02-2006, 01:35
That chainsword is aswsome!

Jormangundr
14-02-2006, 02:22
isn't it just ! another product of my twisted mind (it's actually repping a mastercrafted chainfist ), poor ol Diablo did not enjoy it's creation.

Recepie - 2 ork chainsword thingies ,ork knife d-guard ,wolf head from metal sw backpack (its smaller than the plastic one ) lots of scraping cursing,artistic tantrums ,a big pin and some green stuff...

I am suprised no one has commented on the stretched asscannons yet ! (they are a good 6 to ten mil longer than a normal one !) DAKKA DAKKA !

thunderwolf
14-02-2006, 02:25
Looking at it now, and I was right (albeit on my umpteenth guess, as you know!)

Great looking model, the chainsword, as has been mentioned, is rather kickass, and a lot like your inspiration. Does it count as a chainfist?

Looking forward to seeing the Termies painted to the same standard as the bikes!

Jormangundr
14-02-2006, 02:55
I would hope so..I mean look at the puny chain blades on the current chain fist ! (just a power fist with two thirds of a chainsword stuck to the bottom.. the second ed ones were kickass just sadly too small now.

I did this because I am not a big fan of the current chainfists ,the same blade is going on my wolf lords 'actual' chainfist

just had a look at the second ed one i think it may actually get used ! ,just with a blade swap (see above) an some bling, will most likely chop it off below the elbow and give it a new arm.... it has a joystick and everything, :cool:

Nice- where's the head from? Like that this guy's obviously an old git assigned to keep the pups in line- looks like he takes no nonsense from either them or his enemies!

Jormangundr

19-02-2006, 09:31
Just gone through the entire post in one hit. What can I say? all that work is just so impressive wolves have not really been my thing (though my son in yet another flare up of new shiny army syndrome, did fall for the 13th company trap and I got involved and quite enjoyed it) but those are just great.
Will keep my eye open for updates.

20-02-2006, 15:44
Thanks ! I'll tell you something ,this army is really taxing my patience....just the sheer amount of time/ rffort is killing me off.
I really want to do another army ,but I have sworn to finish em, I guess there's not much left to go (sigh)

oh yeah sorry about the rubbish pictures of the claw,I will re-do them when we finally get some sunlight........

Jormangundr
21-02-2006, 03:25
Just stuck some piccies of my other mini project on p&t general, Just thought i'd mention it so you didn't think i was being idle ;)

will also have pictures of my final blood claw tomorrow night ,and maybe some wip's of wolfguard no 5.

see you soon !

Jormangundr
24-02-2006, 04:53
Oh thank god! just finished the last blood claw.........ever !
sorry about the lack of updates but i have been trying to wedge in my mordheim warband....... pictures of wolfguard number five should land in the next couple of days, this one is taking ages and ages,but like I said, soon :evilgrin:

thunderwolf
24-02-2006, 11:04
I do like the use of marauder parts in your claws, and that cut-down flamer suits them perfectly!

Any chance of a shot of the entire pack?

24-02-2006, 11:53
Hi,
Just wondering where the head in the last conversion came from, I've seen it used in a lot of conversions and want to use it on some of my iron hands.

El-Diablo
24-02-2006, 12:45
The head on the last blood claw is a plastic one from the black templars upgrade sprue. Work is nearly finished on terminator 5, will have some wip pics soon.

El Diablo

Jormangundr
24-02-2006, 17:45
I have two packs so I will try and get some shots up I guess

Jormangundr

Right..Finally wolfguard number 5 is done. Well worth the wait i think you will agree ...enjoy! :D

there's two more pre heresy ones on the way !!

And I mean awesome.

Very nice, you guys have outdone yourselves! What's the plan for using him in-game?

El-Diablo
26-02-2006, 00:16
Its either gonna be used as a cyclone and a very large storm bolter or an assault cannon and a very large scanner array...........

Nothing quite like 2nd ed....

Next up is a second pre heresey, hopefully it won't take as long as this one did.

28-02-2006, 04:45
:cool: Well, I have been following this project for a bit, and I am seriously floored by the quality of both the painting and conversions, but even more impressive is the fact that it carries through the whole army. Keep it up.

Jormangundr
01-03-2006, 06:39
thanks for keeping an eye..preciate it ....... Ze creative powers are yet to be fully stretched... we are trying to push it further with each model...
I will be painting the termies soon as I have finished painting my mordheim warband (see p&t general )

Jormangundr
09-03-2006, 22:01
Right my short stay with the druchii has been a fun & refreshing break !!

So here 'finally' is wolfguard number six ........ it's a cracker !:evilgrin: (no not eminem)

his twin brother is getting started on monday.

these two count as thunderhammer and storm shield,the fluffy bit is that they are based on viking huscarls with dane axes ,so these guys do close protection for the wolflord.

I will begin the pain/agony/trauma/painting on monday :D so should have some pictures of the first painted termy weds/thurs

see ya then !

AventineCrusader
09-03-2006, 23:28
Whats that head from? Really nice, I think this guy is my favorite thus far. Can't wait to see some painted terminators.

Crusader:D

Jormangundr
09-03-2006, 23:34
ha ! the head is the result of far too many hours spent with my head in gw mail order books...It is actually the old dwarf ironbreaker standard head.

just in case anyone was wondering what i have been up to the last couple of weeks check out my mordy warband in p&t general (flagrant plug)

AventineCrusader
09-03-2006, 23:36
I knew it was something dwarf, I was going to guess ironbreaker, but the standard, never would've gotten it. Good job.

Good job as usual, can't wait to see this pack in its entirety

Thats gonna take a while, i've still got another pre heresy dane axe to do, plus another two, shall I say, 'characterful' wolf guard left to do, then there's the wolf lord.

Thats gonna be a world of fun.:wtf:

Jormangundr should be starting the painting on monday, I may have to beat him with a large stick to get him started though.

16-03-2006, 02:08

23-03-2006, 06:32
oh SWEET man I looove the pre heresy look (well yes I am a pre heresy fetich in some way ^^ )

I think youve captured the col wiking/wolf style wich is glorious and the painting is special in a good and uniqe way. This must be the best lightning claws ever well the best wolfs ever Ive seen so keep it up! wonderful stuff

vikingskibum
23-03-2006, 13:28
I really like the lightning claws, but I have one complaint. I think that the fur and the hair are a little close together in terms of color, and this causes them to kind of blend together which is not really a good thing. I would have either made the fur darker, or made the hair darker.

But all in all I really like them, and I may have to try converting up some pre-heresy wolves for my army.

Also were is the shield from on the most recent work in progress one from?

-Viking

Jormangundr
23-03-2006, 16:11
It is the dwarf king alarics shield. I spent about an hour with a buffer thingy cleaning of the dwarf stuff and the hand on the back of the shield..then you have to cleanly remove the hand and grip from a storm shield and stick it to the back .

the hair/fur thing looks fine in the flesh just the shots have altered the colours slightly.

Awesome work man, the SW's are looking really nice.

Did anyone notice the little sign thing in the background of a pic on the second page (or somewhere around there) that says "Wanna get laid? Crawl up in a chicken's ass and wait."? It made me laugh.:p

Well anyways, keep up the good work.:)

The icons on the greaves are indeed GS moulds, not all that hard to do and done right can look fantastic. Im glad everyone likes them. Next up on the painting block is the second assault cannon wielding wolf guard (the one carrying the huge chainsword) and at the moment im halfway through the first of the 2 battle leaders, with a very large set of claws......

09-05-2006, 21:17
The shoulder pads are made from plasticard heated and bent, with thinner plasticard for the banding. There's also green stuff on the joins. I love the fact that other people are trying to do pre-heresy terminators, but the whole marine/ork shoulder pad combo doesn't sit too well with me.

You make me want to run home an finish my SW army, not sure what made me stop painting them, could be all the grey, I paint mine proper grey as well, looks better. Think I may have to invest in more Termies and the FW WG kit and make me some to acompany mr Grimnar. I love those pre-heresy termies, they look a bit like Dreadnoughts!!! (In a good way)

Ranulf may end up being an entirly seperate project all-together.

If you can find the pic of the wolf priest under the entry in the current book, imagine that, but true-scale and pre-heresy.

I love the poses of these guys, alot of 40k stuff looks static, I can actually imagine coming up against one of these (if they were real) and being very scared of it!!! And thats a good thing to have in a mini I feel. Well done and keep going, be nice to see some vehicles as well, see what you could do to them!!!

Jormangundr
16-05-2006, 14:48
yeah i'm sorry too.

Part of the mission statement for these guys was getting the poses right we call it 'moment in time' posing part of trying to breathe real life/character into the models,If I have done my job right and diablo has realised them in mini form everyone should have a different 'favorite'
thanks for the constructive feedback.
have a fave yet ?

oh and a venny dred is in the pipeline plus anuuver one.

KayvaanShrike
18-05-2006, 15:33
Jormangundr, is it one of your WG termies that has the lightning effect on its powerfist? I saw it somewhere, possibly on your model, and was going to try it out on one of my termies, but cant find it, so I could be wrong in thinking it was on your model.

Quick update for everyone, the true-scale, pre-heresy terminator wolf priest (try saying that 5 times fast!) is coming along nicely, hes having some shoulders built tonight, then as from tomorrow the fur begins.

Hopefully we should have the finished convertion pictures up on wednesday.

If me and Jormangundr dont go out and get wasted again.

Hey Jormagundr, El Diablo, your work, as always, is very impressive. Not sure what one's my favourite though, it seems to change with each newly finished Wolf! If I had to pick though, it'd be the biker with the 2-bitted axe, I think.

Can't wait to see what you can do with a dreadnaught!

Jormangundr
22-05-2006, 16:10

Arghh ye old lads made me start Wolfs to :) must say its a superb army youve built great stuff absolutly perfect (IMO) cant find any flaw.

Well anyways thanks for the great insipration and wonderful stuff

Things are coming along well, but we've hit a bit of a wall. We've lost our internet access! Im currently sat in a coffee bar with Jormangundr typing this, so until we get access back at home there wont be any pictures!

But the wolf priest is done, and work starts in a day or so in the last mini, but we wont be revealing that for a while.

For the Wolftime.....

Work has now begun on the last of the squad, the Wolf Lord! This one's gonna be a lot of fun, as i've got a damn sight more freedom with the converting, due the the parts im using. Size-wise, its gonna be aboout the same height as the wolf priest. If I can bug Jormangundr enough we should have some pictures of the finished wolf priest up tonight.

Ta da ! the much vaunted wolf priest..... he really is bloody huge ! its quite hard to see all the detail mind............I'll post sum more tomorrow including some size comparison shots with the lovely Deborah !!
hope for better photees

ps. It appears my creative spark has been ripped out along with my heart so things are going very slowly on the painting side....sorry might have the wg'd i started 2 months ago by the end of the week.... no promises.

sick!

THIS is just awesome guys. *drool*

Lovely how you caught the viking feel with the round shield on the termie for example. A great looking army with lots of atmosphere on the single minis.

Keep up work like this and I'll never make it into the top painted at the GT. :mad: :D

Regards,

Just read through this whole blog from start to finish and I must say these are easily the best space wolves I have seen. The conversions are wonderful and have me itching to try a few things of my own. My favourite has to be the bearded assault cannon weilding termie with chainsword (fist), simply stunning!

My only criticism is of the painting on the legs, the highlights look odd to me, I'm not really a fan of how there appears to be so much of the shade colour left in the middle of the armoured area and the highlights just around the edges. Other than that they look good though.

Keep up the good work lads.

Jormangundr
20-06-2006, 23:54
The harsh highlights are just something I am playing with on the wolves....It's something I think really helps add character to these models..I have been painting in a 'standard' fashion for years so I thought i'd try something different to push my skill up . Now as promised a size comp shot (deborah was unavailable so Naomi has stepped in for this shoot ) :evilgrin:

That's one very kick-ass (and very tall) Wolf Priest, can't wait to see it finished. Any chance of seeing how he looks with the rest of the termies? No particular rush though- I can wait til it's finished.

Once again, a great job from you lads, keep it up!

That is one wicked wolf lord!!!!
Amazing qork from you guys cant wait to see this painted!

:eek: :eek: Oh My ******* God *loud thud* ok lets try again.:eek: :eek: OMG tht is ******* HUUUUUGE!!!!!!! i want to see him painted, o ye jus a gess but will he take about 25-30hours?

Jormangundr
27-06-2006, 22:44
Hey Leman
Erm not sure the normal ones take about 10 to 12 ish hours he may take 15 or so . progress on the one I'm painting at the moment is going painfully slowly having real trouble motivating.

KayvaanShrike
27-06-2006, 22:51
Give yourself a reward at the end or something, and give it to someone else so you can't get it, until the model is done?

Jormangundr
28-06-2006, 15:16
oh we have a stupid 'end of project ' party planned, comedy viking hats ,cigars and a bottle or three of mead.................will post pictures for your amusement :evilgrin:

Well... one model closer to viking hats and cigars. hope everyone likes this one. Been fighting some pretty heavy depression to get this one out, and project wolfguard moving again.

Looks a cool as the other wolfguard :) keep up the good work

thunderwolf
03-07-2006, 02:52
Great as usual, mate; think I prefer him to the helmetless dude, in terms of overall posing and general appearance (not that there's anything wrong with the other one, of course; this one just looks better to me.)

KayvaanShrike
03-07-2006, 17:37
Wow, very very nice there. Keep up the good work!!

Jormangundr
03-07-2006, 18:00

Definately, especially in a finished squad. Keep up the excellent work!

The last of the terminators, which also happens to be the wolf lord is being worked on now. Should have something to show in the next few days.

Very Very nice. Looking great. Is that a drained bottle in the background?:eyebrows:

18-07-2006, 09:28
Very excellent, great to get that group shot. Can't wait to see it with characters. I'm sure its been asked, but have you figured out how you're going to count that dual heavy weapon guy game-wise?
Awesome work, by which I mean awe-inspiring...:D

El-Diablo
18-07-2006, 09:57
The pre-heresy dual heavy weapon will be used as an assault cannon and a really big scanner array or a cyclone and a really big storm bolter.

19-07-2006, 07:14
Yay updates I´ve been longing for this one :)

The squad looks ace and really impressiv. The preheresy look mixed with the newer is really Space wolfish IMO

keep up the amazing work and pposte more pics XD

what did you use for the combatshield?
i like the looks of it.
i'm building a ogre viking army and still havent found a good shield to use.
and the one you have looks perfect for my ogres

El-Diablo
19-07-2006, 11:01
The shield is from the dwarf lord with shield bearers (can't remember his name) with the front detail removed and a new shield boss from green stuff.

KayvaanShrike
19-07-2006, 22:27
Very very nice. Whats coming up next?? Have you made the Wolflord yet?

I just read through all 23 pages in one sitting, and I can honestly say that this is the most impressive SM army I've ever seen!

I'm in love with SW again thanks to you gits!

This is so unfathomably amazing, I think I'll wet myself with excitement if the Wolf Lord doesn't swing around soon!

02-08-2006, 20:37
There should be another painted one (the huge claws) in the next 24/48 hours or so. The wolf lord is taking a bit longer than expected, but should be done within a week or so. But don't quote me on that.

I was worried that this project had just suddenly up and died... and the thought almost made me cry. This is one of the most rediculously unique and interesting projects I have ever seen, and I am glad that the delay is nothing more than just that: a delay. Can't wait to see some more progress!

Yet again I've a new favourite miniature from your force. Those are what lightning claws should look like!

Anyway, I just want to thank you guys for taking the time to share your work with us. I hope that you get many hours of enjoyment out of these models, and that maybe every now and then you get inspired to add another terminator here or scout there.

Cheers!

Fnatastic! well as that where something new about your army :P I love the paintjob ant the LCs are great! Well nothing to critisise exept the hiar wich I find a bit strangely sculpted but It´s your style so I´ll just shut my trap and enjoy those wonderful minis .

keep it up mates

22-08-2006, 12:06
Sweet mother.....

I love that three clawed Lightning Claw. Just makes the whole hand-gauntlet claw thing work so much better if there's less claws. Very nice. Rather love the running forward pose as well.

And egads, El- Diablo has me sigged.

OH MY ************ GOD

All of your models are amazing. I just dont know what to say anymore. Nothing in life can compare to this...

22-08-2006, 22:17
I think everyone is amazed because this is exactly what a Space Wolf army should look like: big, mean, feral, and *******' bad@ss! The GW miniatures themselves are okay, but the figures you two have modeled has given them new life. Now I look at the standard Space Wolves and think, "These guys are sissies compared to Project: WolfGuard."

El-Diablo
23-08-2006, 10:12
Unfortunatly due to some personal problems (similar to Jormangundr's a while back, but in process of fixing) progress on the wolf lord is going very slowly. I will however be attacking the desk when I get home from work so if J stops beating me we might have a WIP for you later.

@DarkStarSabre- Coudn't not sig that, made me cry laughing.
