So, over the past couple of year's i've picked up a fair amount of space wolves,or certainly parts for them. I've wanted to do an army for a while but could never get a solid grasp on a design idiology i wanted. After listening to Prospero Burns i figured why not do pre-heresy wolves, i had a fair amount of spares from stock piling for my iron warriors.

So here we are, i've got 1 ten man unit, a rhino, a dreadnought and a predator to paint. After that this log will go back into hiatus until Forge world give the puppies some love, or i finish Project Zoica (which i my priority, but after a month of ocher i needed a break)

So here's the test mini. Please ignore the base, the lighting has killed all the detail.

Asides from the dread all the mini's are going to be like this. If you want high quality experiment painting check out my chaos force... this one is just a meat and potato force.

Now for the update. I've built more troops and such, but i want to inject more personality into the force yet. For now a wolf priest i've had for years and a few tanks in various states of progress. I've made efforts to get the slight melt/fresh ice-snow mixture to show up but it's whiting out most of the time.

I'm happy with the wolf priest but ye... i do need to look into adding some more work on the eyes when i get a new fine detailing brush.

Looking good. Can't help but notice the basic wolf has a mark of aversion on his chestplate. Is that a boast "Avoid me, I'm lethal" or for some other reason entirely?

Actully pretty spot on, he's going OTT on terrifying the Malifcarum.

Thanks mate, i do plan to go back and add some more highlighting, but for the moment he's pretty solid.


Now before i go on, about 18 months ago i started work on a mechanicus project. It's a slow burn thing, i doubt i'll hit 750 pts by 2015 tbh, but i tinker and add. I've decided to dust off a few models and update some photographs of them. I've also started a new model based on Sheep's log (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?375583-Sheep-does-Adeptus-Mechanicus) which has given me some with a knight design... though i plan to make it my own as work on the torso progresses.

Imagine time;

Right i could do with a few opinions on this guy. I'm currently putting him down to paint a few grade 2 skitarii, but i'm 90% done. Is there something 'm missing with this? i've spent that much time in the past 24 hrs staring at him i think i'm starting to see machine code....

Nice work mate, glad I could help inspire some more mechanicus madness :)

That defiler head really suits it, I'll have to track one down for my next knight!

Apart from removing the moldlines, I think you needs some ad mech symbols, cogs, purity seals etc, maybe and imperial eagle or two if your forge believes in the duality of the emperor.

i've added more details, so hopefully that'll be more fitting.

Nice work mate, and nice to see that I'm not the only one who's being tempted by Sheep's work ;)

Who wouldn't? he's doing some great work.

Now for an update, i've had these about for a while and i've finally decided to paint them up. I'll be the first to admit it's not my finest work, but these aren't going to be my top quality troops/center piece units, they are just to bulk out any full scale armies i put together. Thoughts on the scheme/atmosphere is welcome however.

Sublime as always, Hawke! How'd you get that wonderful blue-grey on the Deimos pred and rhino? It looks airbrushed but I'm wondering if a regular paintjob could achieve the same shade.
