Carsen WIP... SW and random figures
 
So I've decided to actually paint a whole army… a small one, but still an army at 750 points.

As I'm not an expert tactician or even read the whole 40k rule book I did some google'ing and more or less copied a 750p wolves compilation. The small but efficient (at least did the blog state so) army will look like this:

- 1x Rune Priest
- 10x Grey Hunters
- 6x Long Fangs
- 4x Thunder wolves
- 2x Rhinos

I'm not sure if I can get hold of the Thunder Wolves where I don't need to do to much of conversion (I'm both lazy and not a very good sculptor). If I don't then I might change the wolves into bikes…. We'll see… But if you guys know of any good thunder wolves please let me know.

I also decided not to join the army painting challenge as I never know when I'll have the time to paint (even though I try as often as possible) with my baby son and a newly bought house.

Update :

I plan to have all the minis this detailed (or more)...
But darn there are many lines that needs to be drawn on a space marine (if you draw every one...)
I will be an expert on straight lines when this is done. :shok:

I'm not quite pleased with the fur but I guess I'll figure out how to do this nicely sooner or later.

Nice looking model. I really like how you've done the skulls. Very smooth. The fur isn't too bad, but a wash of sepia will tone down the contrast between the shades. Also, I don't know if the eyes are finished yet, but he looks kind of manic at the moment.

That guy look great, you will have a really fine looking force when itīs done if you keep this up

Hmm... Sepia... must be one of the washes I haven't in my box of paints. I'll get it and will follow your advice. The eyes looks better IRL but I'll take another look at it and post an update as soon as I'm done with the current marines. But thanx for the support... From you guys it really means something to me. When/if i reach you level of painting I will owe it to you all... :victory:

Now to a question... I guess it's more a question of liking. I've started painting some skins/fur and am not sure I'm satisfied with it. One thing is that in my head all wolves are grey (especially the wolves on Fenris) and painting the fur in a brown tone is not really to my liking... So the question to you are :

1. Does this look like fur to you?
2. Brown or Grey color scheme? What do you prefer?

This is halfway done..... but still much detailing to do.

I personally mix it up, considering it's not all wolf skins they use. I have grey, brown, beige, black and white pelts on my guys. It helps add a bit more variety to the army.

1.For me it gives the impression of Fur, maybe needs a bit more blending IMO for softer transitions

2. I agree with the stated above, it would be cooler with several fur colors :)

They look very good, its going to be a very nice company :)!
