Apone848 - Space Wolves (Pre-Heresy)

Post by apone848 » Wed Jan 09, 2013 2:53 pm

The plan is to paint up the list below - which is amended to reflect the minis I have that need painting - in a grey color scheme (see below pic as an example). Based on my reading of the FAQ, I should be OK. The changes to the models will be pretty significant, and I am trying to avoid buying new models for this.

List should be 5 points shy of 1850, but I can make that up in wargear later.


HQ - 375pts

Logan Grimnar @ 275

Rune Priest in Power Armor 100


ELITES 395pts

10x Wolf Scouts with Plasma Gun, Plasma Pistol, and Powersword @ 195

5x Wolfguard @ 200

- 1x with Powerfist and Plasma Pistol
- 3x with Frost Blades
- 1x with Frost Axe


TROOPS @ 540

10x Grey Hunters w/ Flamer, PGun, Power Sword, and Wulfen @ 180 each

10x Grey Hunters w/ Flamer, PGun, Power Sword, and Wulfen @ 180 each

10x Grey Hunters w/ Flamer, PGun, Power Sword, and Wulfen @ 180 each


HEAVY @ 535

6x Long Fangs w/w 4x Missile Launchers and Lascannon @ 155pts

6x Long Fangs w/w 4x Missile Launchers and Lascannon @ 155pts

Space Wolves Contemptor Drednaught w/ Autocannon and Cyclone Missile Launcher @ 225

Do you intend to use the GW miniature for Logan or something else?

Paint scheme looks nice :)

Two updates:

First,some progress on my January squad. Need to still do a layer of grey and general clean up. probably will paint much of their bolt guns black with highlights.

Second, got most of the rest of the project done up in the first layer of grey while I watched TV with the Mrs.

Looking good so far. I like the classic color scheme.

Thanks, I'm really enjoying the heavy pigments that the Vallejo paints offer ... using a mix of Iraqi Sand over GW's Calthan Brown, and then flat flesh to bring it a bit more back to 'normal'

Still toying with what to do for the scheme similar to that found in the old Index Astartes Book II (from the older White Dwarves), which means I plan to leave the left shoulder paldrons grey (or possibly black).
