Wolves, Black Legion, Kill Team! Other WIP & Hobby Stuff

Surreal Cruelty

Recommended Posts

I like the Long Fang pack leader, how did you do the arm holding the axe? 


Thanks!  The arm is a chaos marine bolter arm with the trim shaved off and the hand turned upside down.  I added a little green stuff behind the thumb to hold the axe in place.


Here's a side view:

WIP Stuff on the table along with my chaos marines


The rest of the Long Fangs mostly assembled.

A couple of Rune-priests almost ready for paint...going to use the wolf head for the first one.  I am waiting on an order of the brass etched runes to give them runic armor before they get painted.

The free-hand looks great and some  nice kit  bashing.:thumbsup: 


Nice Wolves - The runic script on the Wolf Lord is pretty good, does it say anything?


Great work man really good looking wolves.

Thank you, it was pretty nerve wracking to do the freehand initially, I used to be pretty terrible at it.  Not as crisp as I would like it all to be, but someone in the Space Wolf forum said being afraid to try is a bad excuse for not doing freehand on the wolves.


The runes do say something on most of them...I don't remember all of them off the top of me head, and in fact I had to go look at the model itself to tell you.  On the cloak it says "Son of Russ, the Anvil of Fenris, Arjak Rockfist" and on the shoulder heraldry, it says "For Russ."  They semi-traditionally read from right to left.


I intend to use him as Arjac, did when I originally put him together (before the official model), and while I could use him as a wolf-lord, I think I am going to stick with using him as Arjac, I put a lot of work into him.  If I do get the finecast arjac and feel like doing a lot of fixing, I will probably use that one as a display model.


Speaking as a Long Fang I think you've done the Wolves proud here. Really nice stuff.

That praise means a lot, thank you.  Your sculpting skills are among those that inspire me to use greenstuff beyond just filling gaps.

Been working off and on with this pack of grey hunters for the last 3-4 months.


I think I got a little over-ambitious with the wolf banner.


Grey Hunters - Great Wolf's company:

Some new miniatures painted, and have some revived interesting in painting...This is going to be more of a mixed thing now, not just my space wolves, I am also going to be throwing in some of the chaos marines and any other B&C legal stuff I happen to be painting.  Haven't exactly been idle since the last time I posted, but been a while since I have painted.  Mostly new stuff today, some of the others will come laters as I have time to take pictures.


some beginnings of another squad of grey hunters

Wolfguard Packleader who is going to go with those grey hunters

He's magnetized somewhat (just the left arm)

and the Runepriest/Wolflord/Wolfguard Battle Leader is now magnetized, has a new base, and I have an idea what I am going to do with him

I also went to Historicon last month in VA, and got a decent deal on a LR and a Razorback, both with spacewolf doors, and enough extra parts inside to to create 2-3 crusaders/redeemers if I get another LR body

Some truly fantastic conversions and paint jobs in here... Mind if I 'yoink' some ideas for my own models?


Go right ahead, maybe you'll do some of them better than I did :biggrin.:


Forgot to add this photo last night;


21186069140_8397cec70f_z.jpgWolfGuard PA by SurrealCruelty, on Flickr


Not sure if this is going to be just a specialist for grey hunters, or if I am going to make him another wolfguard, maybe as a pack leader for some bloodclaws.



I took another bunch of photos today, but none of the ones that can be posted on B&C actually turned out all that good...too much light, and they ended up washed out.  Will have to mess with the camera settings or figure out a way to diffuse the light a bit.


Since I am also going to be adding my chaos marines to this thread rather than maintain another thread for them, I figured I would add a link to the old thread as well:




More of both wolves and chaos marines to follow sometime during the week.

Thanks for the compliment Dosjetka, I appreciate it!





More wolves to come after I complete the Call of Chaos, I probably vowed more than I should, but pretty sure I can swing it.

I would say I need to tone-down the highlights on the fanatic there, but like a lot of painting, sometimes you have to over exaggerate things for them to be visible at all when not close up to the model like the camera is.


Raptors up next...then when the CoC is done, considering I got Betrayal at Calth (like many I am sure), I am going to have a LOT of wolves to paint over the winter.

Well, due to time constraints at this point, I won't be able to complete my oath to the Dark Gods.  I couldn't paint the remaining World Eaters and the last terminator I have to the kind of quality I would feel was acceptable...because in the end, I would have to be the one looking at them all the time.


I also decided I want to do more with some of the miniatures, especially the terminator champion.

After not having a working camera that isn't a pain to use, I have some pictures to post... I got struck with a serious case of butter fingers in December, dropped my phone and damaged the screen, then about 7 days after getting it repaired, I dropped the damned thing again an cracked the screen outright...so, now I have a new phone, with a better camera anyway.


I haven't been idle however, and have been painting minis and finishing up squads that some of them have been around awhile.


Raptors from call of Chaos (realized that while I posted them in COC, I haven't posted them here)

World Eater in the post above completing a squad of terminators I painted a couple years ago to go with Zhufor

and recently completed a squad of havocs for the Black Legion, defected over from Hakanor's Reavers (I really wanted to experiment with the heat cracked armor)

and a couple units of Red Corsairs...some of which were done awhile ago, and some were finished recently:
