He is. Ask our very own McMuffin. It was his Kharn that had to foot slog it after his ride was mangled.

The reason he kept meeting LRs was because most people run them 12" in the first turn, putting them within the potential 24" range of a TW. Who can resist the temptation to land 5 S10 attacks on such a pricey enemy unit?

I like how you've conveyed a sense of movement to the miniatures, and the spears add a lot of character and makes sense on mounted units in my opinion. Personally I think the shafts of the spears are too thick for the space marine hands (it looks odd around the hand) and I would have replaced them with brass rod pieces of smaller diameter if I where you (which I believe will hold better through wear and tear as well). While on the subject of the spears those points are awfully thick and blunt.

Loving these Rev, there is a real sense on movement, and those spears look ace. I think the magnetising idea is good as you might want to mix them up once you start playing around with them, looking forward to seeing you progress through them.

I think that the spears are working nicely mate. Looking forward to watching these guys progress.

How is the quality of the sculpt up close and personal? I was wondering what they looked like without the paint job?

xenobiotic: I looked at all different types of spears available in the GW range and the skeleton warriors were the best fit really. Others were either too thin or two fancy. In my mind the wolves would have heavy, brutish spears mimicing the spears they used to hunt kraken. Why spend lots of resource making a fancy spear when 9 times out of 10 the kraken would simply swallow it up?

I've been sorting the hands out with some green stuff and actually pinned the spears so they won't be falling off

Jangalak: cheers mate, the wolves are litterally drooling at the thought of eating your guardsmen at some point

Midge913: that's an interesting question. I would say they are great close up, and there's a lot of detail and extra bits in the box. The wolves fit together nicely and they are really easy to clean up.
I would say that the moulded detail on the shields and shoulder pads looks a bit odd. It's good work but it seems to have lost a bit of definition, like some of the cheaper plastics out there.
Over all I can't fault them though, £33 for 3 wolves with quite a bit of variety in the box is easily the best deal on the market now.

Thanks for the feedback as usual. I've put three together now and got another three to do, plus the wolf lord is arriving thusday, so it'll be another week before I've painted them up.

I like the spears. Power armor increases a space marine's already superhuman strength, so it stands to reason they would heft abnormally massive spears for extra man-stopping power. I also really like the blood in the snow bases you've done. nice work!
