Wolf Guard WiP pt 5

Space Wolf Scouts sneak in to this week's update with their Wolf Guard veteran. The Scouts provide an awesome distraction element and demand the opponent take measures to defend against their ability to come on the board from the enemy's table edge. The Space Wolf kits provide extra heads to swap with the standard Space Marine box kit. These models are an enormous improvement on previous sculpts, and are a joy to paint up and display.

Wolf Guard WiP pt 4

The third squad of Wolf Guard are presented ready for battle. The smooth fades of the shoulder pads give a unique look to theses veteran Space Marines. In contrast to a flat color, these blends highlight the textures and details incorporated into the molds. In the pictures below you can also see the transition of the figures before being washed to the finished product. The shadows and darkened areas are created by allowing the wash to naturally flow through the recesses of the models.

Wolf Guard WiP pt 3

Logan, his crew, and the first two squads of Wolf Guard make their appearance. One of the great things about these models are how customizable and unique each figure can be. The Space Wolves plastic models especially lend themselves to having a lot of visual variety throughout the army. In this case, Kenny decided to use all non-helmeted heads to represent the veteran status of each character. These first finished models have extensive hand blended details to accentuate the individualistic nature of the Space Wolves Space Marine Chapter.

Wolf Guard WiP pt 2

When Logan Grimnar and Arjac Rock Fist drop, they make best use of both their abilities and augment the assault cannon and psychic powers of the Rune Priest.  The other Wolf Guard drop pods afford many opportunities between their plasma and melta shots.  The grey tone and hue of blue in the Space Wolves' armour is contrasted by the shade of orange blended into the yellow of the shoulder pads.
