Default Index Astartes: Red Wolves Pro-Log.

Righto as some of you may know I am picking up on the little know Codex Astartes Chapter, the Red Wolves.

So some WIP pics.

Dread i started for The Bloodied, now for the Wolves. It and later vehicles will be this darker shade of red.





not much progress on it tbh, hopefully with spare time approaching i can finish him up finally.

And Kane Hedström WIP pics





need to do red highlight touch ups. for a start, the rest is WIP

enjoy

Update!

Kane Hedstrom (Pedro Kantor counts-as) is complete.










Decided to varnish him for protection after he decided to throw himself off the painting bench...twice.

The light isnt the greatest, its dark and I'm trying to use the house lights and torches XD

Enjoy

Looking Good Buddy.

I like the red, its very vibrant and the highlights are great.

It looks like some of your paint might be a little to thick in places but the varnish can sometimes make it look that way.

Where you have done the wing parts. If you only add pure white the tips it will make it pop a little bit more.

All together a great job and His face is dynamic and awesome. Now get some pics of that dread up finished lol.

Cheers LTP,

If you can point out areas that look thick, I can tell you if it was paint or varnish, though on a whole it would be varnish, as if the paint is to thick I usually water it down.

The wings are a few layers; Astronomican Grey, Leviathan Purple wash, Skull White base, Leviathan purple wash again, Shull White on top.

His nose came out ok after his faceplant

Dread is next in line as well as the Librarian.

Nice work Grish. Red is great with the highlight. Although the paint does look a little thick or maybe it's the varnish being too shinny. The face is cool - you got the pupil good. I can tell you're a neat painter as your base is hardly touched lol. Perhaps do something for the base.
Looking forward to seeing the dread progress. Keep up the good work dude!

Nice work, looks pretty cool from what I can see. Really vivid scheme, very well done.

Now for the critisism, I think the red needs a few more layers, I can see its well watered, so, there is no problems there. It's just more prominent on the Dread I guess, thats where I noticed it:

Nice work, the Kantor model looks really good and the head swap fits nicely. The red looks good, nice highlights.

Update folks.

The plans of these Wolves are progressing nicely. The basic extent to which I want to take this project is, first step, paint up my 2k and 2.25k list. then from there expand out until I have the whole Company, plus transports (Drop Pods).

It would end up being a list something to this effect;
2x 10man Sternguard Squads with Pods
4x Tactical Squads with Pods
2x Devastator Squads
2x Assault Squads
1x Scout Squad (designated from the 10th Company)
and the Company's Command Council
1x Venerable Dread with Pod
1x Hedstrom (kantor)
1x Librarian
1x Terminator Chappy
1x Emperor's Champion (counts as captain)
1x Command Squad
1x Master of the Forge

A nice little list imo.

We'll see how it progresses

You there! Grish!

Of all the talk regarding your red wolves, I never was actually able to get around to monitor your project log. I'm sorry it's taken me this long to reply and get involved, so here I am!

The Kantor model looks great. However, I think the gloss varnish removes from the paint job (I personally don't use Varnish as all the times i've used it, it's ruined my models, so I don't bother!)

But with that said it's still a really bright, vibrant red with a nice black contrast. Did you take the scheme from the Codex? Looks spot on regardless.

Have some rep for your work, it's definitely deserving!

Talk to you soon chief.

The varnish, I really didnt want to do it to be honest, but after having a shit weekend with dropping bits; having to re model, strip and paint the face , fix the bolter, and in general, get the shits at the model hopping around, literally, i decided to gloss it to protect it...take the good with the bad i suppose.

I got the scheme off Lexicanum, who in turn got it from Insignium Astartes, then adapted by myself.
