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