Space Wolf Objective Markers Painted

DSC_7135

Okay, not exceptionally well, i grant you, but I decided I needed to up my output on this army or I'll still be looking at primer in three years time :)

I’ve described what I was aiming for in my earlier post, but I really did have a hard time deciding what to do as objective markers for wolves, that wasn't frivolous, but sill tied in to the army theme.. and wasn't just a repeat of “supplies”

In the end I decided to go for “sites of interest to our Rune Priests”, whether that’s chapter relics, sacred sites, 13h company or relics of the lost Russ.. yeah, something.

I took inspiration from actual (and recently faked) Norse runestones, such as these:

Anyway, here they are individually:

and officially now dubbed “Menhir” rather than the less epic sounding “Runestone”. Thanks Lead Legions ;)

  1. Very nice. The servo skulls are a nice touch which I intend to steal for my own objective counters.

  2. They look good, perhaps you may want to consider a bright / high contrast with your typical tables' color for the rim of the base? Might help avoid any confusion with terrain or actual units.

  4. Very cool! I really like how they turned out.

    I'll echo Spyrle's comment about perhaps doing something different for the base rim to help them 'pop' as objectives. Maybe black and yellow hazard stripes?

    Keep up the great work!

  8. Thanks everyone, really glad you liked these as it had been bugging me for ages what to use :)

    I like the idea of a bit more impact to them, i'll try a game with them and see if they fall beneath my notice or not :) if I need to hazard striped rims seems a winner :)

    I think I have enough pics for a "wot I did" type post.. i'll put one together, i'll warn you though i think i went a bit overboard with these for what they are :)

    anway, thanks again for the shiny comments :)
