Hello Wolf-Boys (and -Girls if there are any )! After just commenting and lurking around for maybe about a year (maybe?) I decided to open a thread for my Wolves. As my ressources are pretty limited right now don't expect a huge army anytime soon. I guess I will just play Kill Team in the beginning anyway. It's basically a bunch of older models from my teenage years (10+ years ago) which never got to be a proper army. Back then choosing Space Wolves was a no-brainer because they looked like 80s James Hetfield, they we're rebellious good guys, and I liked wolves. Nowadays my affinity to Thrash Metal has mostIy faded, but I still l like my Space Wolves, although I was a bit shocked to see how cartoony some of the newer models looked (Looking at you, Santa Logan and Canis Wolfborn). I recently bought some newer models here and there though, plus some bits from various sources. At some point I will also buy some Primaris I think, but will make them look quite retro marine like (classic helmets and power packs). As my older models have been upscaled - or are in the process of - via the "Veteran Seargent"-method (spacers in legs and torso), the difference in size shouldn't be that big actually (Primaris are still bulkier of course). I just started painting again and I'm trying to figure out how to paint my version of Space Wolves armour (no baby blue and no yellow pauldrons, I think). The idea for the army is that they're a special contingent on some kind of investigative mission in a lesser known system. Maybe I'll have members of different great companies in it, I'll have to think about it . There won't be snow bases, they should look more like the sorroundings of a devastated Ad-Mech research station or something. I'll show you my humble progress here and would be grateful for painting and modelling tips. First of here are some general pictures plus my experiments with finding the right shade of pale , which I tried on the most expendable models I own, old Blood Bowl humans .

As mentioned, like, a year ago, the Brotherhood of the Sun has had a rough 8th Edition. Isolated from the bulk of the Imperium, half of the chapter ran off on some damn fool idealistic crusade to reach the Emperor's Light, only to be corrupted by the chaotic forces they despise. Those that remain loyal do so in the face of oblivion: they know that even if they manage to find and destroy their treacherous brethren that they are likely doomed to extermination for such an egregious defection. Still, they know they need to fight, and march steadfastly to their fates, whether it be death at the hands of the enemy or the Imperium they defend. Kitbashed up a chaplain, and working on a box of reivers. Have some other things assembled from a couple years ago, coming later today. Edit: better pictures
