Darkmurphy's Space Wolves

Post by Darkmurphy » Wed Jan 01, 2014 5:29 pm

This will be my first attempt at the HPC. I am not exactly a quick painter and I usually leave my units half painted (a group of 20 cultists are one of my only finished units). This should be just the kick in the butt I need to stick with a project. I have way too many projects that capture my attention. I had just finished putting most of this army together a few months ago and would love to see them completed some time in the future (ideally by Nov 2014 of course). Fortunately my wife is very supportive (as long as I don't look too closely at her quilting budget). Unfortunately I just ordered a Lord of Skulls so hopefully I'm not screwed before I even begin.

ZM Defender list

HQ:
--Rune Priest in Term Armour

Elites:
Wolf Guard x3, all in Term Armour: 264 points

--Missile launchers x4, plasma gun on leader

Long Fangs x5: 130 points

Hi Darkmurphy
Your list looks like it will scale nicely to 2000 points, although in ZM I have found Long Fangs aren't as effective as in normal games as LOS is a huge issue. Good luck with the challenge. I am looking forward to seeing your army as it comes along.

You may be right with the Long Fangs. I just like the idea of the missiles not being able to scatter to far left and right, ideally cutting the scatter chance by 50%. Short answer is it looks really cool in my head.

First unit. I ordered some paint from Army Painter but I'm itching to start.

I just got an airbrush and I think I might be getting carried away with it. Sprayed him blue, brushed a wash oh him then lightly sprayed a lighter blue all over with an emphasis on the horizontal surfaces.

I like how that colour is looking. What paints are you using?

My plan is to use Army Painter but the colors I ordered won't be here until later this week. I got impatient and thinned down GW "The Fang", followed by a dark wash "Nuln Oil", followed by a spray of a lighter blue, "Russ Grey".

Unit completed.

Well, one down, on to the next. I don't like the way the photos came out but I guess that's the way of things.

I also modified my original list, I swapped the flamer for a plasma gun on one of the Grey Hunter units.
