Space Wolves Terminators - From The Warp Scheme Part 2

I spent most of the day watching football and painting up Space Wolves, and I have a ton of pictures to show off the scheme.  This is the scheme that I found on From the Warp and I am loving it even more in person.   I think the way I am doing it is a bit darker than the models on From the Warp though I still really like it.   I started this morning with models that I had primed and put a coat of wash on.  In the example what I would call "art paint" was used as a base coat, and the bottle I got just didn't work.  The coverage was awful, and I substituted Codex Grey and it worked just fine, due to mine being a bit darker then the models in the example.  Cleaning up and highlighting the models really helped make the wash pop.

Here are the models with wash and cleaned up areas with Codex Grey

 The cleanup really helps, especially on the large flat areas, like the backs.

 I then mixed a blend of skull white and codex grey to do some edge highlighting.  I didn't do as much highlighting as some models, though I did most of the top and major edges.  I really like the look.

 I began to paint the gold, bones, shoulder pads, etc.

 I finished up most of the details, and got to the point where I want to start basing them.  I am doing snow bases, so I put some sand down and after they dry I will paint with graveyard earth, highlight, add some grass, and then snow on top of that.  From reading tutorials online, as I've never done snow, I think they are going to look fantastic. 


  1. I can't wait to see these guys done!
    Does your Wife/girlfriend know you are using the dishes to base models with?

    1. Haha, yeah, they are actually our dishes from our wedding. We used plastic plates that looked kind of "real" and I use them for painting as we still have a huge stack left over.

  2. Hmmmm... Spacewolves for dinner! :) Looks good

    I just came across your blog - I like it!
