Thanks guys for your views I always appreciate your comments, I wasn't taking the "codex" bit the wrong way lol.
I was hoping to get a colour away from the current sky blue wolves, and it appears in the photo at least it looks like a codex wolf! Oops!
I really like the idea of the runes and weathering, I have got the Viking alphabet printed off and I was going to write the warriors names in runes.
I keep thinking about going with my own wolf lord and designing a symbol for him, possibly a good way to diverge from codex wolves?
Dammit I hate choices .......
