Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

edsgotjive : I'd imagine it's probably older than a lot of wargamers nowadays. :D A Luna : Thanks mate, I suspect that they took inspiration from the WWI Mk IV tank. Update! I've been hard at work on this monster and it's starting to take shape nicely now. I've extended the track links and have beg...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Asrodrig: Thanks mate. :)

Khornate: Yeah I can see what you mean mate. Once I've stripped her down, cleaned up the tracks and given her a lick of paint it should look a lot more Imperial.

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Pretty much the same deal as with the Incubi mate. ;) Update This is a conversion that I first made years ago, chopped up and now I've rebuilt it in it's orignal glory. I've got to strip the model when I get some more Fairy Power Spray tomorrow and then I'll begin reconditioning the model. I'll be s...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

That one was pretty straight forward. I used the legs and arms from the regualr Dark Eldar models to begin with. I cut the legs where the greenstuff is and added a spacer. The upper body is pretty much straight from the Dark Elf Cold One knights box. The spear is again from the same Dark Elf sprue b...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Cheers guys! :) Khornate : You have absolutely no idea how tempting it is to restart that project. :D Stephen : I'll post shot of a guardsman next one next time I post some pictures. ;) Yeah the scale issue has been a niggling problem for years. I think they really missed the chance to make marines ...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Update Here's the third character that I'm working on that will be a proxy for an Inquisitor Lord mainly so that I can include a Landraider in the force but also to cement the Adeptus Mechanicus presence. I'm trying to give this guy an unsettling alomst alien feel by giving him lots of movement in ...

Re: conversion for my command squad and Vet. squad

Sounds like a great conversion idea but I think that you are doing the right thing by sticking to just the command squad with this idea. If you go overboard and give them to everyone then they won't look as unique but will make a single squad pop out from the rest. Looking forward to seeing pictures...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Update Now that the model is getting near the completion point I've gone back over a few areas and begun adding more details. I've got rid of the tiny pistol and added a proper sized version complete with first editon style holster as seen on the original RTB01 marines. I've also begun to add a gre...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Thanks mate! :) Quick update I've made some more progress on Enoch and have started the heraldry. I still need to redo the barrel of the shotgun and am about to start work on the Space Wolves icons. I'll probably do the base in a desert scheme, partially because everyone does them with snow bases an...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Cheers guys! :) Quick Update Got a bit more done. I've started the heraldry on the shoulder pad which will be a quartered design and I'll also be addiing the RT era captain badge to his fore arm. Still loads to do but he's getting there. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b141/Doghouse12/Picture070-2...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Quick Update I've got the basic colour for the grey sorted now and am playing around with highlights, shading and weathering. I've got the basecoat for the skin in place and will begin to highlight, shade and work in the stubble. He's coming along nicely now. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b141/D...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

Painting has now begun. I've basecoated him with Charadon Granite and am now going over that with a mix of Charadon/Codex Grey. Normally I start with the face as it's the focal point but wanted to see how the armour turned out. I've superglued him to a paint pot in case anyone is wondering to make i...

Re: Actual Scale Space Wolf of the Great Crusade

I'm at the stage now that I want to start painting the big guy now. In all honesty there are loads of different things that I'd like to do to improve the sculpt but I can always clean up bits/add details mid painting. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b141/Doghouse12/Picture062-3.jpg http://i18.phot...
