The idea is to scrap my Grave Walkers, and change some things a bit using the same figs, and some 'minor' (read: Lots of) repainting. Plus some conversions and greenstuff work. The new idea is to use the Space Wolves rules like I already am, but to go a somewhat different route altogether on the imagery, iconography, and other areas. Basically, I'm thinking lizards, dragons, dinosaurs. Which has definitely been done, but it is a 'Great' idea.
So out came the tools, the greenstuff, and some of the figs I'd 'finished' or had started. Next thing you know it's nearly 6am and I have a bit done towards my goal.
|First fig, note the spines/horns. Just part of what I'm seeing in this project. Arms are magnetized, so working on them is a bit tougher... still waiting on buying my armature vice.|
|This turned out quite nicely, scale pattern worked a lot better than I expected on the first try.|
|This is a bit harder to see, I'm still working on adjusting settings on my camera. But the hand has a spine coming off it, and a VERY light scale pattern around it.|
|This is a little off the idea, did some greenstuff work on a Deathwatch Inquisition symbol on the shoulder... it needs a little work... next pic will show why.|
|The why... basically I lost a bit of width in the lowest right 'bar' of the symbol. Not a big deal since I can always add more greenstuff to fix it later. Just need to let it set up before I get back to it.|
|Hard to tell but the hide has a wave to it, and bunches along the right leg pauldron. But overall the patterning worked out very well.|
