Hey Guys.
Well... I got some time on my hands this weekend.... not much, but enough to more or less complete Ulrik.

First I though it would be a rather simple one to paint... But hey was I wrong. This guy had more details then I first thought and I also found it kinda hard to make all the colors details get together nicely. I more or less ended up with the same colors as the GW had in their previous codex except the color of the staff. I kinda imagined it to be made of ice.

Anyway.. Comments? Don't be gentle...



I'm almost done with the rhino as well... only need to add the last details.


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

Thanx guys..

Small update.
I have put some GS om the wolves. Before I paint them I'm gonna get me a bottle of GS and see if it can solve the hole-problem. (they have soooo many holes from air bobbles)
I think I start to get hang of how to work with the ordinary GS anyway.

... some pics :

Good GS work. Shame you had to compensate this much for failcast though...

Indeed. I second elmir's thoughts. Definitely looking better than they did before. Solid GS work and I look forward to seeing them painted up.

I could not help my self starting to paint a 'test' wolf.

I started out with a white base and added the sepia wash to get the darker shades. After this I dry brushed it with bleached bones and again with skull white. Apparently I suck on dry brushing, because it looked all dry and not very clean.
So... I was not very pleased with the result so I started adding white strand by strand (see the head... the rest is original dry brushed) and it got better, but not good.
I might try to add even more color and hide as much depths as possible without removing it completely.

What I'm after is a wolf that is plain snow white, but with some shades in the fur. The sepia is obviously both to dark and to brown and I don't want to use any other of the GW washes i have.

The result is... not what I wanted... And their for I'd like your opinions of how to end up with a better result.
What would you done here? Add white to the sepia and make it a very very very thin wash? Or make your own wash based on fortress gray or astronomican gray?

Do you think a blue tone will look strange instead of the brown?



Maybe I end up painting him gray and paint strand by strand i 2 or 3 layers....

Finally back from Japan and the Jet lag is gone.

I sat down for the first time in a month yesterday and started working some more on the wolves.

My first idea was to paint the leader wolf in another color than the rest. But after tonight I changed my mind. Black is the new s**t.



I googled pictures of black cats and dogs and they either was black/brownish or blueish... So I decided to go on the blueish tone as the Fenris Gray is somewhat blue. On the last picture the wolf is only based with some improvements on the bionics and legs. The tail is the only painted fur so far.

Someone here suggested that I make the upper part of the fur a bit brighter to make it look older... but in my head it should be the fur under the shin and belly that should go white?

Comments? Do you guys agree on the color choices?

Minor update:
Now it's only the detailing left. But the result will be ok i believe.
The blue tone is nice with the rest of the SW Marines but still stand out.
