Get yer motor running…
or something.
It’s been another week of hard work at my job, leaving little time for the hobby, and a lot of that has been taken up by Killzone stuff, which you can see over at Big Jim’s blog. but it’s coming on very well and if you want to see what we’ve been up to he’s intending on having a mini launch of the current test rules on the 7th, pop that in your blog diary :)
I was also fortunate enough to be regarded among the stunning banner entries at B.Smoove's Blog and am incredibly proud that my Photoshop efforts now adorn his site.. I am assured some form of prize is on it’s way to me, though I did not in truth enter for the loot, I will however humbly accept it and chart its development on these pages.
Now, to the picture above. I wanted to expand my wolves to 1500 as that seems a sound number for most games, my original 1k force being too small for most opponents. I figured the most fun and cost effective way to do this was to purchase a Ravenwing battleforce.
I love in your face armies and the ideas of space wolves, being Norse in origin, having a thing for bikes just resonated with me, those Scandinavians do like their choppers.
the guy who received the most conversion was my Rune Preist. I think i will call him Sven Steppenenwulf :)

The birds will be painted as ravens, and his robes will be a very dark blue. at least, that's my current thought.
The attack bike looked odd without a base, so i built one-
out of two bike bases and some plasticard.
The rest of the gang are fairly vanilla. I didn't use as many wolf bits as I could, or maybe even should, as I have it in my mind that they get more customised as they get older, and progress, so my long fangs should be positively dripping in pelts, but my claws less so.
as you can see there are some clues to their wolfyness, but the rest will be done with paint.
The landspeeder is likewise fairly vanilla in it’s build. It does sport a flamer conversion though, thanks for a sentinel kit.
In keeping with Sven Bloodhowl’s Great Company I am using flamer and melta wherever possible.
I’ve started some paint tests, relying on the airbrush fairly heavily. I’ll post an update once more progress has been made on that front :)
Thanks for reading, :)


  1. These look Outstanding! I must say you now have me thinking about bikes for my Wolves.

    I cannot wait to see some paint on these!


  2. I was never a particular fan of SM bikes, but yours (especially the awesome Rune Priest) look really nice, can't wait to see them painted. :)

  3. Hi guys, thanks for the comments :)

    I've been experimenting with the paint, I want to get these right. - I'll share soon then you can tell me what you think :)
