I keep posting up pics of whatever the latest addition to my Space Wolves army happens to be but I haven't really shown you guys the army in full so I thought I'd start this project log and just keep this updated in future.
A bit of back ground is that this is my second Space Wolves army, with about 14 years additional painting experience on the first (I wont be showing my previous wolves, started when I was 14...). I've had many armies in between but the wolves of Fenris have always been my first love.
I prefer a darker shade of grey than the GW standard for my Wolves, which is a good background for the red spot colour I have running through the units and contrasts will with the new snow flock I have been slowly retrofitting my army's bases with over the last few weeks.
This army is based on Bjorn Stormwolf's Great Company as I liked his background in the new codex and I started my first squad about two weeks before the release of the new wolf minis. So after 12 months, this is where the army stands. Not too big yet, but my three Grey Hunters and 2 Blood Claws squads are nearly at full strength and I have quite a lot of options available to me for a game.
Some things I am looking at adding are another vindicator (good fluff-wise with Bjorn, and two vindicators in a game work pretty well I have found), and some more rhinos for my troops. Eventually I want two Land Raider Crusaders for my Blood Claws too as I found this was a game-winning combination on many occasions with my previous army. Generally I just paint the minis I like the look of and love converting and trying out new things.
So here's the pics:
The army in full as it stands 12 months after being started
My version of Ragnar Blackmane with a squad of Blood Claws
Some Grey Hunters
A few more Grey Hunters
My Wolf Guard, I have one to act as a leader for each of my squads
My Wolf Guard terminators
My Swift Claws
The squad of Sky Claws I'm working on at the moment. I want them to look really feral, like some of the images in the 'Collected Visions' book
A wolf Guard Battle Leader I aim to field with the Sky Claws. Expensive points-wise, but I rarely care about that if the mini looks cool
I won't re-post pics i've already posted, but some earlier posts of different bits of my Space Wolves are here:

I'll update this as quickly as I paint. Any comments and ideas welcome (in particular about the Sky Claws, i think they look pretty good but if you have any suggested improvements before i start the paint job...).
Thanks for reading.
