View Full Version : space hulk to space wolf!

06-09-2009, 04:08
This will be the project log of my space wolf honour gaurd for logran grimnar (counts as death wing). i have bought a space hulk box and some forge world terminater upgrade kits. i have 5 sqauds and a wolf priest.

here is the wip wolf priest



still need touching up on armour and all the details to be done ingore the gems it was an experiment.

I like the concept but Space wolves don't have a fist company. They in fact don't follow Official Space Marine guidelines at all. They are spit into 12 companies each led by a Wolf Lord and include scouts, bikes, wolf guard(Their Vets and Termies), Grey Hunters (their Tactical squads) and Long Fangs(Their Devastators) in each company.

I like your idea of a space wolf termie army, but I just thought I should let you know the background.

Nice armor by the way.

06-09-2009, 04:35
Looks good so far, if somewhat messy. They could also just be a large group of Wolf Guard banded together.


06-09-2009, 04:49
ok i will change it to whats his name honour guard. rather then first company

edit whats his name is logan grimnar

The new codex has had rumours that an all-terminator army will be possible for Space Wolves.

as for the project, nice to see someone do something interesting with these new models finally, i.e. not painting them red. :D

i would be really really happy if the space wolves got an all terminater army. i am waiting to see if they realease a new logran grimnar model, before buying one.

up date in about 8 hours (from this post)

I'm contemplating mine going Wolf actually, but its a shame to carve off/cover up all that nice BA iconography. The Libby needs some pelts/runes etc... he simply currently looks like the BA on painted in grey , I really would remove those blood drops too. I've thought about reshaping them into fangs but they are way too fiddly.


06-09-2009, 22:26
i am keeping the blood drops cause they look similer to the diamond thing on the forge world torsos. i am also keeping the wings maybe to be the symbol for a valkerie? (not the flying transport, the anges tht take people who die in battle)

I heard that they are not updating Logan Grimnar but they will be updating the other two and getting a bunch of new characters, but since I saw that on another thread I'd still adopt a wait and see approach.

Thats really good colouring that, but before you put tons of effort into converting tons of space hulk termies, take a look at the new plastic wolf guard terminators. You will be absolutely blown away.

Nice to see somone making none-BA SH terminators. I'd thought of doing Spacewolves since the new codex is on the horizon, but have duped for my old favorite - a chapter with onl a colour scheme, I'll be keeping an eye on this log to see how you handle all the BA iconography as thats a task I'm going to have to handle once I get my supplies together. Your starting to inspire me, I might even end up starting a log like this if I can pull of a half decent test-mini.


07-09-2009, 05:40
there isnt that much blood angels stuff to remove, just the goblet and taking a few but not too many blood dros off. and when the new wolf guard termies come out i will get some of them soon i will have a compny worth,

07-09-2009, 06:31
here is the update
all comments welcome

without flash


with flash


07-09-2009, 08:25
Cool idea. I've been waiting to see how people were going to change up the Blood Angels from the set.

07-09-2009, 09:39
Cool idea, looking forward to seeing more! I was planning to change my terminators to be imperial fist termis... :)

07-09-2009, 10:59
will update soon with his face done (hopefully)

Great concept!! Love the colour scheme. Im going to be doing the same but converting the models into Deathwing instead!! How you going bout removing the Blood Angel icons from the Termies??

07-09-2009, 11:16
well rather then remove all of them, i am leaving the wings and gems and only removing the goblets

07-09-2009, 14:12
They wont be very space wolfy if you keep the wings especially the one on the librarians banner. Why cont you sell the BA termies and get the new Wolf guard Termies that are out 3rd Oct. Then again they are your termies so you can do what you want with them.
Also the old SW rune priest in terminator armour had little 'raised' runes on his armour are you going to do that with this one?

08-09-2009, 03:47
i am going to paint the wings gold as in the imperial eagle to kep them more space wolfey. i also plan to buy some of the new wolf guard terminaters. in end i am aiming for a hundred terminaters.

11-09-2009, 10:26
update tomorrow as i can't take pics at the moment, its night time.

11-09-2009, 10:43
Oof. Bad flash. BAD. If you need to illuminate your minis, you might like to put a bit of tissue or tracing paper over the flash before doing the shot.

Good work on the armour plating, though, and the lenses.


11-09-2009, 10:44
i was just showing what it would look like with the flash. in to orrow update there will also be the start of a predater

11-09-2009, 17:06
Don't listen to those that are telling you to sell your figs. Do what ever you want with them enjoy playing the game how you want to.

P.S. Can't wait for an update.

11-09-2009, 22:06
i never sell my models

12-09-2009, 17:00
I can't say I have either.

I like what you have so far, very nice. I do want an update though... ;)

12-09-2009, 21:51
sorry i couldn't update yesterday the camera wasn't charged.

13-09-2009, 03:35
finaly the update
the metal and bones are just base coated

and what i have don this week

13-09-2009, 10:00
I don't think the other terminators look as space wolfy as the wolf priest/librarian guy. Maybe add some GSed wolf pelts and stuff?
Anyway, its looking good so far.

I bought my Space Hulk yesterday so now onto the converting!! Great paint job on your termies!! Cant wait to see them finished!! What colours have you used to get that grey?

13-09-2009, 18:09
I like em, keep them coming.

13-09-2009, 21:20
the grey is just a base coat of fenris then a panel of shadow grey with a 50 50 shadow grey space wolf high light then pure spacewolf grey final highlight.

16-09-2009, 16:07
Very nice work, sir. Any plans for green stuffing to make them even more wolfy?

18-09-2009, 23:02
i dont plan to green stuff them as i am planning to buy the space wolf upgrade pack for the space wolf look.

and sorry guys no more updates for 10 days as i am going to be in china on holiday.

19-09-2009, 00:39
Out of all the chapters, Space Wolves are the ones that aren't just defined by their blue-grey colour. To make them Space Wolves and have them fit among termies from the SW box, I really think you should step up the character of these models. These models are great for Codex-chapters, implaceable suits of armour going coolheaded for their target. Space Wolves however should look a lot wilder, almost feral. Only Lorenzo makes a great fit, as he is showing some emotion on his face and in pose (plus he has fangs). The others, without convertion? Not so much.

Just some bitz and pieces from SW sprues can do miracles.

22-09-2009, 08:53
got to s internet cafe. my plan is to put pelts knifes and other space wolfy stuff all other the rest of my space hulk terminaters

05-10-2009, 01:57
update coming soon

Belial's Apprentice
05-10-2009, 08:12
Looking forward to your update!! Just started converting the SH models inot Deathwing. Very difficult process but easier than expected. Will post photos soon if you want to see

05-10-2009, 08:34
and here it is


need comments on this first try at a power/force weapon thing



05-10-2009, 08:38
If you wanted some sort of lightning effect, I think you may have done it too structured/patterned. It should be more random, and if possible, a bit thinner.

Nice to make the effort, this always looks great on power/force weapons.

05-10-2009, 08:59
i was kinda hoping it would look a bit like wolf teeth

05-10-2009, 09:30
O, sorry. I made the assumption, as blue + angluar lines + sword/axe = lightning in my book.

If it's wolf teeth then it's no surprise it's a pattern. But in this context and with the chosen colour and look of the teeth, I might not be the only one to make this assumption.

05-10-2009, 09:56
i know to get most of the painting you need me there to explain it

09-10-2009, 03:14
up date in about an hour

09-10-2009, 04:35
update time

this unit i just started paining today and it only has 4 terminaters as one guy was lost to an explosion of plastic glue (i am serious) so i am going to use a spare space hulk guy (the on with dueal lighting claws) to fill in.




09-10-2009, 08:04
hmm not to be harsh but is it right that you put the Shoulderguards on reverse ? Wolf tails must facing backwards...and the crux terminus must be on the other shoulder if i remember correctly...sorry :(

09-10-2009, 09:37
oh woops. (knocks onhead)

10-10-2009, 05:14
Frost Blade(or just a power weapon) on the assault cannon guy, i like that. I gave mine a storm shield to make him a little bit safer, but I like your idea too.

11-10-2009, 10:12
another update this time the starting of a pre heresy space wolf terminater




i am thinking i might remove the strapping on his torso and just leav it with a neck guard

14-10-2009, 05:35
another update with the re heresy terminaters

finished in terms of modeling first guy


and the second part done heavy flamer guy. if any one want to know the fuel tank on his back is from the cadian flamer it fits perfectly.



14-10-2009, 06:58
I like it but...

...is putting the explosive fuel tanks in front of the heat expelling armor exhaust the best place for them?:p

keep up the good work

14-10-2009, 08:01
well its just like the new wolf guard termi with assault cannon ammo in the same spot

03-11-2009, 08:22
sorry for no updates i have ahd a school camp and i am working on my russ model with have a update within the next few days

17-11-2009, 06:08
finally an update but it wont be much untill i get a package frome england. so for now its just a teaser.

4 space wolf packs + package from england = not that hard to figure out

EDIT = i havnt been able to update cause the package still hasnt arrived. will post when it gets here.

06-12-2009, 09:46
