Finally I’ve finished all 12 Wolf Lords. Took some doing in the end. Really dragged my heals for the last two. But here they all are in one post.
The blog started with this project and it feels pretty good to get it done. The names are linked to the original blog posts. If your interested have a click and I go into detail on the conversions for each one.
It all started with Ragnar Blackmane. He’s very heavily based on Tommie Soule’s conversion. But I was so pleased with how he came out it gave me great momentum to try and make more Wolf Lords.
There was a version of Egil Ironwolf and Sven Bloodhowl in ‘Curse of the Wulfen’ so I based my versions on them.
Still not sure if he’s too jazzy. No one has said so but I suspect Wolf purists aren’t a fan. The idea behind the wings was he would stand out when I make his entire Great Company (ha!) as he will be amongst a lot of jump packs.
Built Krom as normal. His base model is very nice anyway, actually used his body for Ragnar and Bran too.
One of my favourite conversions. I liked him so much I named my online presence after him (Krakendoomcool).
Another stock model. With the stock models I think I tried to push the painting side as that was all there was to do. Tried to get his red nose in.
Relatively plain this one. I pushed the wolf skull iconography as per the company badge. One of my best green stuff beards.
Very much went for the fire angle with Kjarl. Couldn’t resist a flaming sword after having the idea. Maybe watching Game of Thrones.
Still one of my favourites. Nice for me personally that Jon Sullivan (the artist who did the pic he’s based on) has seen him.
Another stock model. He’s magnetised on that rock if I ever get around to finishing his chariot.
Possibly the best GS I’ve done with the beard and hair on Bran.
Lastly Bjorn. Getting those arms to hold the double headed axe was challenging.
Artists Empire made my day by doing a ‘paint over’ of one of my pictures. Really sets the scene and brings the models to life.
So with the Wolf Lords all done it’s time to make their Grand Annulus!…
