That's pretty well painted brother. My only (minor) criticism would be the beige wolf pelt. I know grey wolf pelts don't stand out that well (does make it a lot easier to paint though) but if the wolves of Fenris were brown, surely the legion would have painted their armour brown also? But like I said, nicely painted.

Nicely painted.

At the Reverand. I hope you are wrong because i've done about forty brown wolf tails over the weekend and they aren't changing now!

I do most of my wolf pelts brown/beige, simply for the contrast against the grey, but I think you need to give this one a few more washes of gryphonne sepia just to darken it a little more. Otherwise, a fine job.

Very nice work on a very detailed model. Looks really good. I like the brown pelt, works well against the armour.

Thanks for the comments gents, regarding the wolf pelts, alot of my guys have the same colour pelts, not done this because I give a dame about how they would be on Fenris or anything, I just think its a good look and goes well with the armour. I have however given a few of my guys different colours just for different wolf coats at different times of the year.
