Silent Wolves  

Posted by Hal'jin in , ,

So a break from the exams and some time to actually post some content, woo! This time, something that has been done for quite a while and a break from boring Power Armor - the Wolf Scouts!

While usually they're fielded in squads of 5, just with a Melta and a Mark of the Wulfen, but a full squad is ready, just in case!

Unfortunately they're more or less a suicude squad that can take off a critical target, but then is likely to get killed by anything. But the models are quite awesome, so I still like fielding them!  There's closeups of course!

The first three, regular chaps, I like the post of the one on the right.

I really enjoyed painting those models, sort of a crossbreed between painting IG and regular PA Wolves.

Next three, with Mark of the Wulfen model in the middle. Also, notice the base of the model on the right. I was planning to make it partly a mountain stream, but I still haven't found a good way to make water on the base, that would look good.

I decided to give him a chainsword to make him stand out, although the regular Scout chainsword was horrible.. So he got a regular one. Not too stealthy, I guess, but once in combat it doesn't matter much...

A Melta gunner and the plasma pistol on the right. Plasma pistol still hasn't seen the field of battle as it's quite an overpriced option, but I like the looks of it a lot!

Besides in a 10-man squad it could come in handy, since Scouts have only one special weapon per squad, no matter the size.

And the last model, armed with a Power Weapon, although not a pack leader, since Scouts are all highly individualistic.

There is a Power Fist/COmbi-Melta Wolf Guard that joins them from time to time, to add some additional firepower.

And that's it, hope you like them! Also, I just got another package full od DE stuff and I'm going to pre-order the new goodies as well, meaning DE will soon be very done and painting will begin!

Moving on with the vehicle motiff, another heavily armored thing - Brother Vali One-Arm, the veteran of countless battles!

This started out as an AoBR dreadnaught that I did quite some conversion work to add wolfy details and make it look like a proper Space Wolves Dreadnaught!

He is armed with the Multi-Melta the AoBR came with default, although I decided to swap the Storm Bolter out for a Heavy Flamer instead!

Two sides of the Dread.

As you can see I added Storm Shield some wolf tails and such. Notice the small detail above the MM arm.

Detail shot of the Heavy Flamer, made frm the IG flamer and some wire. I think it turned out really nice.

A tabard and lower part of the body, as well as the base.

Unfortunately the Dreadnaughts aren't really a highlight of the Space Wolves codex and Vali hasn't actually seen a single battle, since interred in the Dread. It's partly the loadout he has, since such a short range Dread is mostly suited to walk towards the enemy, something that Dreads don't really do that well. I am planning however on maybe getting the Venerable one from ForgeWorld at some point though...

And that' it, hope you enjoyed it!
