Title: Wolfspear 4th Jarldom
Post by: Lord of Winter and War on November 29, 2021, 10:10:51 AM
Started work on a new project, an army based on the Wolfspear Chapter.

Finished a couple of test models, and converted a captain to lead the force.

I had to look these guys up, they're pretty cool! And you did a great job. The leather work is especially impressive.

Thanks!

When I read the white dwarf article about them, I knew I had to make an army of them.

The leather is just gore-grunta contrast paint on grey seer!


Made some progress last night.

I had built an Infiltrator squad out of half a box of reavers, and spare parts I had kicking around from the easy-to-build infiltrators. Most of the backpack ariels are broken, so I'll have to replace them when I eventually get a box of incursors. I primed them last night, as well as the Captain, and started work on him. I also have a picture of the rest of the reaver squad, which is half done.

all of this is 24pl, so that means I have enough to start with crusade games (once I finish painting).

Cool to see someone finally taking on the Wolfspears! And right here on the forum no less  ;D!

They look wonderful, Killersquid. I agree with Godspeed - that's some great leatherwork you created there.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Looking stellar! I love that you didn't go with the default snow base and great job on those flesh tones too. Really impressive work there.

Thank you very much :) The hair is just Gryph Orange contrast paint, very easy!

Thanks man, The Wolfspear, are a fleet based chapter, so I wanted their bases to look like they are on a ship (or something like that).


Thank you!


Spent some time last night working more on my Phobos Captain.

Thanks! it's just apothicary white contrast paint, over greyseer base. Then I edge highlight with Ulthuan grey!

Finished the Phobos Captain, and started basecoats on the infiltrators.

Thanks man! I appreciate it.

Recently, I sold some older models, so I used the funds to buy a few kits to add to this project.

Nice  8)!

Can't wait to see all this come together.

I am bracing for an imminent Aeldari release myself next year  :D.

Keep it up!

A buddy in my club said the same thing about the future Craftworlds release lol. He's been selling off some of his models, getting ready for it.

Eldar has been my main love and army for almost 30 years. Im patiently waiting and hoping for some good rules and plastics. Hoping no disappointments this time.

Well, as long as there is one or two new kits, that'll be a huge improvement of all their previous codex releases lol. The bar is set low. Eldar has been so dominant competitively for so long, I'm pretty happy they have their time out of the sun ha ha.


For the wolfspear, Been busy with building stuff.



Built enough models for a 1000pt game agaisnt my buddies Tyranids, which was a lot of fun. Looking forward to start getting the rest built and more paint on the models!



Also, finally finished my Reiver/ Hounds of Morkai squad. Currently building my stormspeeder.

Awesome board, terrain, and armies!

How did the game go  :)?
Title: Re: Wolfspear 4th Jarldom
Post by: Lord of Winter and War on December 17, 2021, 06:50:42 AM
It was one of those games in which everything went well for me, and nothing for my opponent. Besides his hive tyrant being invincible, so wasn't a fair test of the army. I also have a lot of rules to learn.

In the future, please use the modify button. Double posting is against the forum rules, and for that reason, the system merged your posts.

Finished my stormspeeder, kept the crew out for easy painting. Hopefully I can get them back in lol.

Also, I am now working on my RunePriest, LT, and Infiltrators.

I love this army! It's so visually striking. The power armour is just beautiful. So smooth and clean. The colours pop so well!

Special mention to those bases! They're really pretty. Might have to go back and redo my Escher bases having looked at those. They're soooo pretty!

Thanks for the kind words. The armour is very easy, just a coat of contrast paint, and an edge highlight! Makes for easy power armour.

The bases is just a lot of washes and drybrushes. Really enjoy working on them.

Small update. Got the first unit of infiltrator's done. Working on my Stormspeeder now.

Another update. Stormspeeder is almost done, just gotta finish the base, a buddy 3D printed a base for me, but it was a little small (80mm instead of 90MM), but mostly fits. Hard to photograph. Also, started on some eliminators and Incursors.

Amazing job on that speeder! Great placement for the decals and just that hint of green on the missile pods really just helped the finish. The only thing that bugged me was that only one guy had his eye lenses painted, but I am sure that's on the way. So happy that you painted the speeder and put the riders in after, which allowed you to better paint the interior. It allowed such a better overall finish and better painted riders, which I find so many people just ignore in place of getting it finished for the tabletop quicker.

Keep up the work!

I think I did all the lenses could just be the photo too. It would be way to hard to paint them inside the cockpit. I'm such a messy painter, so it would have been a nightmare with the white armour!

Eliminators! Thanks!

I took a group picture of all the finished models so far!

Thank you very much. The Cloak is just snakebite leather contrast paint, with a hughlight of Zandri Dust, so very easy and quick!

Small update, been working on a squad of Incursors, only have 32 infantry to paint after these guys are done.

My plan for my 2000pts list is the following.

Phobos cap (done)
Phobos Librarian (done)
phobos lt (Primed)

x3 invictor warsuits (1/3 done, 2/3 unbuilt)
x2 hounds of morkai squads (1 done, 1 unprimed)

x3 incursor squads (0 done, 2 primed)
x2 infiltrator squads (1 done, 1 unprimed)

x1 stormspeed thunderstrike (1/1 done)

x3 eliminator squads (1 done, 2 primed)

Hey folks, small update.

Finished my incursors, which is exciting. Also, I'm very excited about the news from Warhammer Community today (https://www.warhammer-community.com/2022/01/13/war-zone-nachmund-vigilus-alone-unlocks-a-sneaky-phobos-clad-army-of-renown/) as that is my army! (minus the speeder...)

Also, I took some better pictures of some of the other units.

Great work as always KS. The Eliminators and Infiltrators are super, but the real star of the show is definitely the Stormspeeder for me. Such clean lines and such a nice finish. I need to reiterate just how much I love your colour scheme. Really nice, with excellent use of complimentary spot colours.

Just lovely all round.
