Space Wolves are finally done

After months of being 99% done I spent a few hours to finish up the Rhinos so that I can officially put this army down.  It's the last army I will have painted for 5th edition bringing my total to four armies I finished painting in the two years I played 5th edition.  I don't count the GK terminator army I did, that was only 25 models and I only used it a few times before sending it to the eBay god.

 I don't know if I am actually going to use it in 6th edition as I am planning on picking up new Chaos stuff, but I wanted to get it done as once that Chaos Marine codex drops I won't touch any of my imperial forces for a while.  While I haven't used this army very often, it feels great to get another 2000 ish point army under my belt.  This was one of the quickest armies, I had finished 99% of it in about a month and a half and got distracted when I was I was at the finish line.  I did learn some great skills on this build, mostly related to using washes to add depth to armor.

On with the pictures!

  1. It took me ages to find this post - the army looks fantastic and I am thinking about using the FTW method to do a space wolf army after i picked up some cheap plastics from ebay.

    Did you do your wolf pelts in white? I will wait and see how dark the primer I have ordered is before deciding what shade to do them, i see yours is near Codex Grey.

    The dirty truth is that I would rather have used this for a space shark army - but thats not the way the ebay dice came up! Cheap unpainted men are awesome.
