Krom Dragongaze is a great model and a key release for the Wolf Lords project. I use his body for two other Wolf Lords (Ragnar and Bran), his head for Engir Krakendoom and his axe for Gunnar Redmoon.
I talk about what a good fit he is for a Ragnar conversion in an earlier post. This model has a broad chest and flared wrists. These are a couple of features that really help sell him as a Wolf Lord and make the model so useful for conversions. Using the Wolf Pack kit to make Wolf Lords is doable. But the thick wrists you get on the Krom model really help sell your Wolf Lord conversion and isn’t something you can get from that kit. There are enough bits in the Wolf Pack box to make characters but considering how much detail and character your big standard Grey Hunter has you really need something to stand out in a Space Wolf army.
I left the model as is and painted him in the expected colour scheme. I wanted him to look like Krom so figured that would be the best way to achieve that.
His axe was fun to do, put a bit of effort into that…
So that’s Krom. Four Wolf Lords…eight left.
Im glad you mentioned his axe because it really is the focus for this guy. Instead of have that chipped flinty looking edge a lot of non metal axes have, the shape of it with they way youve paintes it really make it look like cut and polished ice. I also really like the way you do gold, i think im just a lazy painter but i really should get some tips off you for that considering how often i seem to have to paint it and looking at yours makes me jealous. Nice one.
