Good clean paint job!. It looks very 'Codex" like to me and works well if that is what you are going for.

I always think battle damage looks good on SWs too.
I was considering weathering the lower legs and chainsword/powerfists in this way, Il do some weathering on this chap and repost to see what you all recon.

Im unsure if I should do a lighter highlight or have a darker mid tone?

Hmm I didnt intentionally go for "codex" wolves but it is close, might have to change that.........

Also any ideas on how and what details I could add to personalise models, im good at painting nice neat stuff, but I always struggle to add details?

Sure. If you want to "personalize" the army with the paint brush then why not paint one of the Space Wolf designs on a knee pad or a shin guard? You could do this in a pattern across the army or very it up from model to model for a nice effect. If you don't mind doing free hand then that always makes an interesting model. Just a few ideas anyway. However..., what I said about it looking "codex" was not meant in any way as a put down. The test model looks great

This kind of thing would help a great deal. I also imagine Space Wolves to like to paint their armour with runes and such, or tribal markings. That could would quite well on lower legs etc. I think with Space Wolves, considering the pelts and such, you already have a fair bit of detail over a vanilla Marine. Finally, if you're gonna weather the model, it would change the models 'neat' appearance.

With regards the highlight, I think the highligh you've already done is light enough, so a midtone would be more useful. A thinner line, however, would also work. If you really wanted to go to town, a midtone and another highlight certainly wouldn't go a miss.

I really like your style though Munky. It's a style of painting I try to adhere to in all honesty.

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 .......

Sounds like a plan mate, honestly. If I were to interpret the Codex-wolf comment, it'd be that you've painted it in a very neat, to the mark look. I do think the colour is a slightly grittier grey than the usual however, which I like. And again, after some Viking rune treatment, personalised Wolf Lord symbols and some weathering I think you'll have nailed it.

I believe the idea will work its just putting all together, thats the hard bit.
I personalyy have been waiting for a LOOOONG time to get the new models and codex before I even think about starting my army, and I only wanna do em once lol!

Anyone have and good tips of tutorials or links even on weathering, mainly chips scratches and dust(for the the legs).

Il probably adapt an existing transfer for my great company, and freehand the changes onto it.

Id better get to thinking about the fluff for these guys........

Right I managed to do some weathering on one side of him, what do you all think?


I hit the lower leg with a wash or two of Graveyard Earth/Charadon Granite, and painted the chips with Charadon, and highlighted them with the power armour highlight of Astronomicon grey/White mix.

Its a little time consuming but Im shocked by how much better he looks with it done!

Good feedback guys I really appreciate it.
