    Wait no longer.

    Undercoated white.
    Painted with bleached bone all over. (Paint thinned a little).
    Top half of mini painted patchy bestial brown (Very thin and watery).



    Then paint some markings with fortress grey.



    Not sure if I can tell you where to place these I was very random on the rest of them because I had so many. I also came down a lot futher on many of mine to make the overall appearance darker. My test one was a bit pretty. The only rule is...try and make both the sides symetrical.

    Next paint the same markings with codex grey letting some of the fortress grey show through. It doesn't matter if you are not too careful with this and bits of codex grey are against the bleached bone. Dont try to leave a perfectly even border of fortress grey. (I was much more careless with the others than this Demo one.)

    Re: This week I have mostly been painting.....

    Next a mix of chaos black and Codex Grey. As above. Try not to worry about it too much.



    Finally a very dark stripe of chaos black. To make some clear markings.

    Then I drybrushed with bleached bone, working from the bottom and blending into the darker markings a little...not as far as the darkest colours, about half way over the markings.

    I have included test wolf so you can see where I am heading.



    Then a mix of bleached bone and skull white. again dry brushed from the bottom up.
    This is all of the texture, highlight for the bottom lighter parts of the fur. This time don't go quite so far up. Maybe on the odd raised part.



    You can do a futher highlight with a lighter mix of white and bleached bone on the legs and tops of feet and catch the odd bits of fur. The final touch is the light stripe down the back of the dark stripe. The textured line is there on the model it is simplicity itself to drag the brush over it lightly.
    Thats how I did the fur on test wolf. Then I painted the claws and mouth...blah, blah.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: This week I have mostly been painting.....

    Each stage takes less than 30 seconds.
    To do all the stages takes just a couple of minutes. (if your not mucking about doing one model at a time and taking photos )
    Also, you can see on test wolf I didn't bother with the different colours of grey and the finished reult is not so different. So you can reduce that by a couple of stages and get it down to less than a couple of minutes.

    I did the first stages of the stripes on the the rest of them in well under two hours.
    (not dry brushed yet). You can see how much more carelessly it is done. Yet the finished effect will not look too different after the dry brushing.

    Superb method, those images of the massed wolves are damned intimidating. I love it!

    Are you going to paint in details like tongues and gums, or whiten up the teeth?

    Many thanks. There are some lovely minis in the old ranges. Stick around you'll see lots more.

    Oh, and I think a comment I saw about General Steiner is true here:
    "Massive scrolling bar of Doom FTW!"
    I am sorry have no idea how to make the images smaller. It took me ages (days in fact) to work out how to get pics on here at all.

    Any support with this gratefully recieved if it will make the thread better.(faster).

    Look forward to seeing more pics (especially of the goblin room. oh and some MoW stuff including boards).
    Thanks. No Man'O'War for a while. Maybe if/when they re-release it I'll get the boats out of dry dock.

    Holy crap, were the first words that came out of my mouth when I saw those last pics...that is a bloody lot o' wolves!!

    Cheers for the tutorial

And unto this, Conan, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Open the images with Microsoft Office Picture Manager, and go into the Picture drop down menu. There should be a resize option there. Downsizing to 500pixels seems to work for my pictures, although it may be worth experimenting a bit.

    Hope that helps

    Nice wolves btw

    The amount of miniatures is just twisted, I cant imagine painting all those wolves at once.

    Pretty wolves. I could be mistaken but... you are sticking with 'fantasy evil' red eyes, not going natural (yellow? right?)?

    This is some impressive stuff you got here Harry. Did I read right that all those wolves will have goblin riders? Incredible. I can't wait.

    You're a mad man, A MAD MAN!

    Well done on the wolves so far and thanks for the tutorial. I was wondering how you got such a nice looking, natural scheme on so many wolves.

    You have inspired me to get back working on my own stuff. Good luck with the rest of yours.

    Well I hadn't given it that much thought but now you draw it to my attention I think will be going for natural yellow and not fantasy red. Thank you. Now wheres my big bumper book on animals gone.....

    Re: This week I have mostly been painting.....

    Meanwhile back with the painting.

    Here is Test Horse. For the Knights of the Whoite Wolf. (Just a quick one to see where I am going)





    Should I do them all the same? OR Do I put the gold trim in different places for a bit of variation?

    Lovely horse Harry; very good work

    I think that the gold would look fine in the same place on all the models; give it a good uniform look.

    Out of interest, is the Knights of the White Wolf sprue still available? I've been looking through the GW site and can;t seem to find it.

    Don't know. All mine are the original metals. I am sure the hairy head sprue is avaiable to add to the knights sprue. (If indeed it does not come in the box).

    Ah, found it
    Why didn;t I check there before? :confused:

    Are those knights for a whole army? Or just a fun little side project (sort of a silly question really)
