So I’m doing something different. New year, new plan and all that.
If I’ve one resolution, it’s that this year the bulk of the Space Wolves Army is getting painted!
I’ve ditched Sven Bloodhowl, and the moulded shoulder pads.. mainly because I don’t want to be limited.. either in the special characters I can use, or in the Paint i can sling.
My Wolf guards are all being painted as Logan, the Great Wolf’s company. likewise any rune priests, or wolf priests.
The three grey hunter packs are being painted up from different wolf lord’s great companies too.. Egil Iron wolf’s, Engir Krakendoom’s and Bran Redmaw’s
Long fangs supplied by Gunnar Red moon..
Swiftclaws from the stormwolf..
Scouts obviously will come from Morkai,
And so on. Basically trying to fit the unit to the wolf lord that most epitomises them and their use/tactics..
Now I know this might sound like heresy to most of you, and the new codex seems to suggest one should “pick a great company”, But ..
I remember the old codex, where a space wolf army was made up of different companies, tied together by a purpose, and sometimes and “army badge”. So that’s what I’m doing, mostly for the paitning challenge, but also because this way I can keep adding units, and modelling wolf lords etc untill the
cows wolves come home.
What do you think? mental or inspired?
