Wookie's Wolfies Project Log
 
So... the wolves are finally here!

Having finally worked out the various army lists that we might want to play (500 & 750 points army for daughter's school club, 1000 & 1500 points variation for my own pleasure), I'm now committing the minis to glue.

First up would be the basic 500pt army consisting of:

HQ - Wolf Guard Battle Leader with 2 Fenrisian Wolves
Troops - 2 packs of 7x Grey Hunters

These have now been primed and will be painted over the course of this week... as usual under yet another tight deadline as these have been requested for by the daughter for this Friday's School Warhammer Club*! A simply legal army to get her started with her school-mates. We'll progress to additional Elite (Wolf Guard Terminators) and Heavy Support (Long Fangs, her favourites!) units once she gets used to the general rules and tactics.

* Yes, Daddy will be painting the wolves for now so as not to distract the daughter from completing the painting of her Skaven and High Elves armies!

So here is the first picture for this log... bits all primed and waiting to be painted!

Base Coating
 
And here's what was achieved last evening after putting the kids to bed. Base coat spraying... Setting up took longer than the actual spraying but would have been even worst had I simply used the brush on individual minis!

Progress so far
 
With only evenings available, I was never going to finish all 15 minis in 4 days... especially with having the deal with mould lines! This was what I managed for use at this afternoon's school club. Not the best but sufficiently decent for the daughter to learn the basics in school using 1 HQ and a 7-trooper team.

Meet Wolf Guard Battle Leader, Kolmar Hammerfang, and his Grey hunters...

Very nice paint job. The flesh and bone look very good. The group pic needs more colour though. I always found SWs hair a great way to add colour to a pack. A blonde or red head thrown in breaks up the colour, and every pack needs a ginge to pick on.:grin:

Thanks for the suggestion on the hairs. I totally agree with you on this. Just need to figure out the "recipe" for redheads and the obligatory ginge!!!

Thanks Rev. As requested, here is today's WIP... the Thunderwolf mount! Spent far too much time on the working out the different fur layers and got a wee bit carried away with painting paws!!!


Two views of the Thunderwolf...

I just use one of the oranges washed heavily with sepia, and dry brushed with the orange again. Simple, quick and effective.

Nice TW by the way.

Thanks for the tip... just need to get me some orange paint now!

Anyhow, managed to "finish" my first Thunderwolf Cavalry this morning. Good enough for now. Hopefully will improve with a bit more practice in the coming months.

This weekend's efforts
 
Here's a wrap-up of the weekend's efforts.

Thunderwolf Cavalry is already posted above so will not be posted again. The rest have been given a bit more attention to the detailing (to the best of my current abilities anyway). Hadn't realise that these SW had soooo much individual detailing required! No shoulder pads yet as I'm still trying to figure out the colour schemes and what's appropriate on what shoulder...

Group shot of minis so far...
