The ones from mythicast look far better to me.

The second link wolves look better if you intend to damatially pose your models in specific ways based on how the wolves are posed themselves...

if not the mythicast wolves would suit a variety of poses which would allow you far more conversion options

mind you they both look pretty awesome.. ultimatly its up to you.. hope this helps :D

Neither, hey both suck. Get the paulson games wolves.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

Have a look at these guys. A bit cartoony, but a huge step above either of your choices.

Neither, they're both far too expensive in real $$$. I mean, $14-18 per wolf?! $5-6 a pop is the most I'd shell out for them.

Until GW releases reasonably priced models, I'd use either Warhammer Fantasy Wolves from the Orc + Goblin Wolf Rider set (admittedly a bit small), or Heavy Cavalry Horse models (perhaps from the Chaos Knights set), or Boars from the Boar Boyz set.

The first casualty of war is neither innocence nor truth.

The first casualty of war is always subtlety.

I just received the wolves from Mythicast.....

They are nice indeed... BUT they need to learn how to mold them better.
I am not satisfied with that as there are holes from air bubbles and small balls of plastic all over...

Hopefully I got bad ones and they usually do it better, but I need to make a nice paint job and also put some GS here and there to cover the missing parts.

I'm going to write them an email and explain how they look like and maybe they can send me one or two replacement parts...


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

I have seen these models up close before - im surprised at the bubbles etc you received as the ones i saw didnt have this problem. ALthough i will warn you there was some gappage so green stuff will be your best friend on these.

This is the worst one. Take a look at the ear and you get an idea of how some of the other 'corners' looks like.

That's a disgrace.

Get your money back, these goods are clearly utter bollucks.
