Default Loki Deathclaw's Great Company (Heresy Era Space Wolves)

This is the start of my Space Wolves Great Company. I have recently got back into the hobby after long break.

Models:

10 x Grey Hunters (incl Battle Standard)
10 x Grey Hunters
10 x Blood Claws
5 x Wolf Guard Terminators
3 x Wolf Guard in power armour
3 x DreadsI
3 x Thunderwolf Cav

So I found a load of my old SW models, the old metal ones, and decided to strip them down and repaint them in the Heresy Era colours. I had previously painted them in the codex, bright, shiny colours and really wanted the darker grey armour of the Heresy wolves!

So here's my painted Grey Hunters (minus the Battle Standard), Wolf Guard in power armour and two of my dreads. I have been reading the Heresy series Black Library books and really wanted to recreate the dark deliberate killers that the SW are. This is also reinforced in the Battle of the Fang, so here's my project so far!!!

Nice looking force. I love that old Blood Claw sgt model, and keep missing out on him on ebay. Keep them coming.

So here's my next pack in progress! This will be my Blood Claw pack. The majority of the pack are from the old metal pack with a couple newer models cobbled together from my bits box to bring the total up to 10.





This is one of my older models base coated and given a quick wash



After I give them a quick dry brush before I paint the detail individually. I have learnt from my previous attempts so now I only dry brush the edges and raised areas of the model to keep the armour dark.

Looking good so far. Nice use of the older minis too, they were some of my favourites.

I love it when people use older minis in their forces and manage to make them work. Great work. Looking forward to seeing more.

Thanks for the comments much appreciated!!! Got some forgeworld models and bits to mix in with my force to add a heresy feel, a few head swaps, pack swaps and MKIV Ven Dread that can act as a Bjorn Fell Handed if needed.

So here is my first Blood Claw I have finished. I'm going to try and paint the pack in a little less ornate scheme the GH as I want to so their junior status in a subtle way (apart from pack markings) so will be painting less of the gold armour detail and trim onto them.

Very nice work on the highlights. They seem extreme but they work somehow. How do you do them?
