So, I finally finished and sold my Tyranid army, and put some funds towards a new force - Space Wolves. I wanted a new challenge and really liked the Wolf character models. I decided to paint the army lighter than the standard Russ (shadow) grey with highlights. Ive gone right up to fenris grey for the armour. I also wanted to go detail heavy on them and do a lot of rune writing on them. I have just finished a scout squad and am working on a drop pod, using, for the first time, weathering effects. So far so good! The only thing Im not 100% on is the transfers on the scout pads - I was reliably informed that by using the lahmian medium it would matt finish them, which it didnt. Im umming and ahhing whether just to paint over them. I think they don't look great because of the size and curve of the scout pads, I will make a final decision when I start my Grey hunter unit later this month.
Anyway, without further ado, here is the first unit of my new swolf force, enjoy.
