Well, I'm usually pretty terrible with these things as i often find myself drifting if I do things too intently but I'm going to try and keep this one going. As I'm now responsible for generating interest in the Space Wolves list I think it important that I showcase the Wolves as best I can, as Neal Hunt and I will be putting Epic:Nemesis (SW vs 1K Sons) supplement together and I think a modelling section is pretty standard and necessary. So... I need to pull my finger out and put in some effort. :D

EDIT - thought it pertinentthat I include the link to the actual army list too!

THE OLD ARMY

I have a Space Wolves army from back in c.1991 but it really needs to be overhauled as it was pretty much painted using drybrushing and the grey looks far too light IMO.

So that's the old army.

THE NEW ARMY

I had already started on the new army - basically putting putty on minis to make them more "Wolfy", like Arjac Rockfist as I posted before:
Image

And I'd already finished Bjorn Fell-Handed:
Image

I've recently posted my Thunderwolf Rider
Image
Image
Image
but I'm not actually sure I will ever use one yet :D but I thought it was important to put one together for the modelling section and practice my putty skills as I intend to make some Fenrisian Wolves with putty in the future.

Anyway, now I'm onto formations at last!

My first 500 points will consist of 2 units of Swiftclaws and two heroes. One formation of basic marine bikes and one of attack bikes and I'll be doing one of each type of Hero for the bikes because I already have them from the SM character pack.

And here's my first bike unit

The photos look a little washed out unfortunately (I really want to get a proper camera set up!)

So far I've added a top knot and a plasticard lighnting claw to the Battle Leader biker
Image

So that's post number 1. Stay tuned for the complete 500 points.

Thanks for looking!

I like all the conversions so far Dobbsy!

If you were after more 10mm wolves, you might try Copplestone Castings here. For £5.35, they do a pack of 12 giant wolves that look pretty good and will match the scale (I beleive) of your current plastic one. Plus, they are quite nicely animated!

Yeah I did look at them but I think they're a little too large Major_G. FWs should be about the same height as a marine and the warg I used is way to big to be anything other than a Thunderwolf really. :( I was hoping they'd work out but....

Ah, they were different days, weren't they? If only we had them again - full game days and good friends every Sunday without fail.

Looking good Dobbsy.

Nice. Where did you get the wolf for your Thunderwolf Rider?

It's from the BOFA from Grandma Wendy's Specialist Games (a Warg I think?)

The nice thing about the BOFA wolves is that they are somewhat smaller-scale 10mm than most of Wendy's metals, so closer to the up-scale Epic plastics.

Very nice conversions. I think the TW is perfectly scaled actually. The 40k version is also huge compared to any normal wolf model in that scale.

Sure:

Battle of Five Armies. <-- You'll obviously have to do that lame-ass click-though thing on Gandma's site, but the link should take you straight there otherwise! ;)

The box set is now several years old. The main box appears to be all that GW now sell in the range (there used to be some blisters and you could get the box set plastic sprue separately), so no. Trade or Ebay would be the only way i think now. Im surprised the box set is still out at all, I thought GW said it was to be a limited release at the time.
