Sorry about all the photos I think he is one of the best models I have ever done so I wanted to give you many perspectives. :D

I just finished my first thunderwolf how do you think he looks? I know the camera really doesn't look crisp, but hope it gives you a good idea of what he looks like. Please comment if I can make the photo any better, any comments on the painting, and any tips. All comments are appreciated and read. Thank you guys!

Love the fur! The legs on the marine could do with a wash, to give them some shading.

Ya I love painting the wolf I thought the snow Coat I added looked very nice. Along with the blood effects I really loved it. I am not used to painting flesh I had to mix the colors. It didn't turn out as good as I would have like it. I thought the wolf looked amazing though. Any tips on how to make the actual riders look better?

Like I said, a carefull wash of nuln oil on the grey parts of the armour, followed by some highlights with fenrisian grey. The face could probably do with some Reikland flesh shade to give it more depth. The hair you could probably also wash with nuln oil and then drybrush/highlight with white again.

I love the wolf he looks awsome, the base just lets it down a little imo. Some rocks or ruins would make it look really awsome :mrgreen:
